Sweet ride!

I have a question though....How did you get the rear flame arrestor on the rear carb? Looks sweet.

GT

Been there and done that Glenn! That scoop has a tray, so you mount it WITH the air cleaners   (Arrestors if the po-po is watchin this...... :sly:), then the scoop bolts to the tray.

Now my Crower unit.........well, a little more complicated.........and not so much Po-Po friendly........ :sly:

Beautiful boat BTW! You even got the right deck ornaments in place!  :thumbup:

Thanks man. Funny thing there is no flame arrestor on the rear just regular air cleaner. That's how I bought the boat.

Hit me up if you need a flame arrestor.......I ended uo with a few extra  on the Moo 1.0 deal when I built it.

O I C...Thanks Ray...Never played with one of the scoops before...I'm not even sure if I have ever seen one up close now that i think about it.

Makes sense.   On the dual Dooley scoops you literally have to fit your hands between the top of the scoop and the arrestor, my daughters hands used to be perfect, now she's all growed up... :-\

haha yeah the v/c's are lookin good. thanks again for that link. lol and about the costume party and jet boats......hahahah that would be a sight to see. but honestly i think it would all depend on the weather. i have never been on the water on parker or havazoo so i dont know about them. but laughlin and this stretch of river where i live (10 minutes from avi) would be cool as long as they are letting enough water out of the dam and weather permits. monsoon season out here is basically from end of july to october.

Mine was stiff when working it back and forth on the trailer.
