    Comments about Marinetech Products 610 Panther Safe-skeg, Alpha Generation Ii Drives:

    I had the exact same problem as the other reviewers. The manufacturer is aware of the issue where the connecting bolts (called sex bolts / sex screws) are too short. They will send you the correct hardware at no cost. Yes, it's frustrating, however they will correct the problem. No telling how many units shipped to resellers with incorrect hardware in the package.

      Just as the other gentleman wrote, the hardware provided are not correct in length! Then on top of that customer service is closed on Saturday. So the long and short of it (haha!) it will take a least a week to resolve this issue! Someone did NOT DO HIS OR HER HOMEWORK! MEASURE!!!!

          Comments about Marinetech Products 615 Panther Safe-skeg, Bravo & 3 Drives:

          I bought this because it was the only one that West Marine offered and I was already ordering something from them. It was rather pricey compared to others around, but decided to buy it any way. The nuts that hold the unit in place are too short. I ordered it for my Bravo 3. Pretty standard drive.
          It came with 4 nut and bolt combos. 2 short and 2 longer. Neither one would meet in the front hole. Is my Bravo 3 skeg fatter than most? Doubt it. The threads wouldn't even meet. I put a clamp on it to sqeeze the sides together, still wouldn't meet. Now I have to try to track down a stainlees low profile nut and bolt combo with shoulders on it. What a pain. Other than that it looks like a nice unit, but without the proper bolts, it is useless.
