yeah, brad i feel ya on that one...i talk to tyson from time to time, and he says that the Avi focked them over so much, like not giving comp'd rooms for all the money that they have spent there and etc...too bad the lagoon is tits tho  8) where's lake martinez? AZ?

Reid
Title: Re: Well Hellooooooooooo!
Post by: Brad @ SCJB on December 16, 2007, 08:33:48 PM
actually, the lagoon is a joke.....100's of wave runners driven by inexperienced idiots. They rent them without giving any instruction.

they werent watching where they were going or obeying any common laws of the water...including the no wake zone....swamping boats.....we even bounced one off the bow of a boat at speed and they guy didnt even stop.

i tried to complain to the resort and they didnt care one bit. they caused more of a fuss over rivertard spraying down the bridge then waverunners acting like idiots.

staying at the hotel wasnt an issue since we tried to make it 'unofficial' so there was no one to blame/get a finger pointed if, or be held liable if something tragicly stoopid did happen.

martinez is south of blyth...i havent been there yet, but from what ive been told theres not many big boats or wakeboard boats since the waters are shallower down there. lots of jets.

I'm ready to try Martinez....never been there but everything I hear and the photos I see looks like jet heaven.....and besides I use to live in Martinez Ca. so there must be a connection....(somewhere or something) what the hell am I talking about? I need another shot....I'm down...just let me know when....Hay Tony we can hook up and I'll follow you down....maybe Steve will be done by then with the project...wow I can't find the damn bottle...
Title: Re: Well Hellooooooooooo!
Post by: pw_Tony on December 16, 2007, 09:45:12 PM
You out of Havasu? Yea that would be cool. I've been going to Martinez since I was born, literally. Just got to know where the sandbars are, which I know pretty well. If a turn fin boat hit a sandbar it would hurt.

Get Steve out of the house? LOL, good luck! Haha just teasin steve a lil

Yea it's south of Parker, about an hour and a half if you drove straight from parker there. All sand, no rocks. And it's about 2-3 times as wide as Parker with 1/3 the people

You could get brand new carbs.

After dickin with my father's Tunnel Ram for a while, he agreed to spend some money to try something different. He had 650's on his, with a mile 400-450hp Chevy in it.

Well we tried double pumper 450's, they are only $230 each! They worked much better. Better throttle response, and much better fuel useage. Wide open on that boat was just over 5000RPM anyway, it didn't need much carb.

Summit's part number for the 450's is HLY-0-9776
