However seeing as its now at the dry stack you probably won't need to worry for a while.
I have been advised by at least 3 etec dealers that the towing bracket really isn't for towing.. Plus, isn't a bit dangerous generally to have the prop up at such a high level? For pedestrians and other vehicles, tucking it down as far as you can sensibly put it so it can't strike the road surely makes sense?
Edit: Just seen

Excellent, look forward to seeing you on the water sometime
Two questions: where is the gps mushroom, if you have mounted it within the console then I would be very interested to hear how it performs since we nearly went that route but didn't take the risk, a secondly, with an all dark boat any specific reason you went for a totally transparent screen?
