Good catch! You would think it would of have one on it already.

Right?  It's not just boats either.  Almost every small engine device I've owned, I've had to add better hose clamps to the fuel lines.  There's either nothing, just interference fit, or some lame clip.

I took the boat out yesterday and it worked flawlessly. 

 

It may have fallen off because of bumpy roads.  Thing is, this thing would no stay on without a hose clamp. I know there are at least two different gas tanks that tracker his ship with his boat.  I will have to find my brand again, but I believe it could happen to anyone of you.

My carpet is coming up in parts. I'll make an appointment. Getting time to winterize.

Just finished the jaime mod to my gas tank.  My hose was still on pretty good, but I'm not going to wait for it to fall off for such a simple fix.  Anyone doing this your going to have to unscrew the nipple from the assembly to get to the last screw.  It takes maybe a total of ten minutes if you take your time.

It's been kind of quite here lately.  When I ordered my spare transom saver I got a compass.  I just installed that on the top center of the console.  :Captain:

 

When I made my order to West Marine I only had the transom saver and the compass.  I was a little concerned about this order, and was very surprised when TWO packages arrived.  The transom saver and the compass shipped separately.  I know if I had ordered the two with anyone else they would have dropped the compass in the same box as the transom saver, which would have pounded the compass all the way to my house.  Two thumbs up to West Marine :happy-cheerleader-130::happy-cheerleader-130:.

Hello folks!

 

I was at my local Cabela's and they happened to have a Heritage on site, so I scooped it up.

 

Was there any resolution or confirmation of putting in a recessed foot pedal box?

Welcome to the club!  I don't remember where, but I saw somewhere someone had put a tray in no problem.  It's something that I'm planning to do.  I have found it uncomfortable running the trolling motor while standing.

I think it was a great idea to have a 40th. aniv. edition. Some retro stuff is iffy, but I like this one. ( course I,m partial to Trackers anyways ).

I remember seeing a video, dude ended up cutting through one of the supports I think. I can’t find the video. 

 

Id like to get specifics: box measurement, where they cut, etc if it’s possible to avoid cutting anything other than the deck.

Recessed trays are simple to put in.  The traumatic part is cutting into your deck.   A search of some videos will show you how.

I'm pretty sure that tray should be facing the other way since the power plug is at the top. The slope is to ease the strain of the foot control cables exiting the recessed tray.

Did they have to cut through any horizontal running supports/beams?

 

id like to see the hole without the box but I know that’s not your pic

This is the only other pic I have.  You might try Facebook.  They have a Tracker Heritage group with a lot of modifications going on there.  It can get a little nuts there at times :rolleyes:.

There is a hollow vinyl feeling plastic tube that runs from under the console to the back of the boat. No connections on either end. Any idea what it’s for?

Just watched it, that is pretty surprising. I thought we were unique. LOL I guess we have the actual anniversary model. Nice though, maybe we will get more people posting!
