....Here is a pic of one of the five I have done....


That pic kind of looks like a standard split bowl?

I thought you were referring to modifying a 1-piece bowl into a 2-piece? If so, who is performing the bowl modification? And do you have pics of the modification process?

I bought one of those at the Big 3 swapmeet (I no longer have it). The guy told me that him and his friend used to modify those one piece bowls to the split bowl, but he said they don't do that anymore. Probably more than one company doing that conversion though.

I thought of making some for $ but then I remembered I don't have a tig welder. So if anyone out there wants me to build them one just buy me a $3500 tig welder and I'll get right on it.   ;)

Thank you for your compliment on the looks of the bowl.  That is a 1-piece bowl that I converted.  This bowl has been used in the Parker 300, all this season racing (starting in November) and pleasure use.  I have not heard anything from my other bowl customers, I take no news as good news.  I did not have time to do a bowl mod pic diary but I will on the next one.  Which will be very soon.

I needed to lower the centerline of thrust.   With my boat set up this way, it works the best.  I would have never tried it but the ass end looked like it was stuffed into the water.

....That is a 1-piece bowl that I converted.....

Knowing what is involved(in terms of equipment and labor), I will once again ask, "who actually performed the conversion?"
