KKMI Point Richmond’s installation of my Garmin Class B Linear Drive.  The drive twists to the point of freezing up and repeatedly slams into the “scuff plate” KKMI attached to the hull.  KKMI is Paul Kaplan’s boatyard and the project was managed by Bob Hennessey.  As you can see they’ve attached the drive unit to a tie-rod, a fatal mistake.  This installation violates many key directives in the installation instructions and is clearly unsafe.  They still claim that this is “not their fault” and have failed to offer a reasonable remedy.  Please USE CARE when working with these folks.  Do NOT pay with check or cash — I made that mistake and now have very little recourse.  Shame on you, KKMI.
