    Hi

    The gearstick extension I first produced had become a bit floppy so went over to my mate in Chelmsford and produced Mk2.

    Definately an improvement with less movements.

    The second picture being Mk2

    A far more professional looking idea.
    It looks to be only a few specially manufactured components. Does that make it marketable to the community, maybe Marina owners would appreciate it!

    The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.

    Loads of Marlin Reference can be found documents here or there.

    I am more than happy to take measurements and try and list the components.

    PM me if you are interested.

    Yep, looks good.

    The thing that made any of this posible was getting over the lift for reverse.
