I went down to Backyard Boats in Woodbridge, Virginia earlier today to pickup our new Revo, and was told the new aka lock fix kits had arrived as well as the main sheet chafe kit. Jay just opened the box and handed them over; he asked if I wanted them to do the installations for me while I was there, but I wanted to do them myself, so I'll address them later this weekend.

Jay also said that they got caught up on their TI orders and have 2 or 3 extra that can be purchased in person or online - so anybody that wants one and has been biting their nails, Jay has a small supply of them. I looked at the shipping packages of this batch of TI's and this batch has a big day-glo pink sticker on the outside that says "AKA HOOKS ADJUSTED".

And here is a view of our TI with her new new little sister. In the background you can see the pile of TI's wrapped in white that Jay took delivery on this week.

Mitch.

Do you know wow can I tell if mine has this fix?

Question on your trailer.
Do you think there is enough clearance from ground to rear of boat?

Mine has about the same clearance when hooked up to the truck.

Matt stated: "We have experienced a materials tolerance issue which can render some aka locks ineffective (Boats shipped prior to May 17th). Boats shipped after this date have been corrected by the factory. If noted "Factory Adjusted" on the crossbar. These boats were corrected at the factory prior to shipping."

As for my trailer, I've driven several hundred miles with the TI loaded on it now and have yet to experience any problems with the rear being too low. That said, I'm careful with where I drive and look ahead for potential problems.
