Gelcoat / Paint / Fireberglass Repair / Gel Coat Issue
« on: March 27, 2017, 02:02:52 PM »
Took my boat cover off and found this weird stain type of thing. Or possible rub mark. You can see where I used my finger and some started to come off but MAN that stuff is really on there.  Any tricks or substances to get rid of this. Thanks

Because I am cold! So thinking about taking my boat out on New Years and I read cold makes more power, hot takes away. This is true? With jet boats? How much? Teach me! Should be 45-55 degrees out that day. Way different then 100 degrees. Lol

I know it is a day early, but seriously thank you to everyone who ever served. We are for ever in your debt. 

So today we are marching from the state capital in Sacramento all the way to San Francisco. Two day march. My cousin organized the non profit.

Engine Mechanical / Electrical / Oil and Water Temp
« on: July 01, 2016, 02:38:38 PM »
I was thinking(I know! It was big of me to actually think), but does engine temp reflect oil temp or vice versa?  Can you have a cool running engine but hot as sh!t oil temp? Or if one is hot obviously the other is hot? I dont know, just curious. Little Friday thinkin.
And if oil gets too hot what can happen? I am full of questions, next I want to know how babies are made.

Jet Pumps / Got Rooster Tail?
« on: June 03, 2016, 12:53:04 PM »
So my buddy has a 19 foot Eliminator. JG pump with diverter. When I first saw the pump I was kinda surprised how far down it points. When it is down like that he has a shit ton of boat in the water. When it is all the way up he has next to nothing of a rooster.  But I am no expert. What do you think? Normal? Or we can change something?

The No Wake Zone / From a dig

Teach me all mighty racer jetter boater people!  I have never been taught and I understand all boats are different but what is the best way to get out of the hole and to your top speed fast? I have droop and diverter.

So...
Diverter down at start then tap up a few to get to max speed?
Or diverter is already up a couple notches and go like that?
Teach me!
Memorial weekend is close and CFW is ruthless.

Jet Pumps / Did I screw myself?
« on: February 25, 2016, 07:17:48 AM »
The past two years I have been scraping together this new engine(after blowing the last one up). Funkin dying to get back on the water this summer. Like wont stop talkin about with anyone within ear shot of me. I have taken every marine engine precaution that I was recommended or read about. Lets say I am in the 600ish range? Now I cant confirm that, but lets just say 6ish for the sake of argument. Wasn't even thinking of the impeller in my pump. JC aluminum a cut. So did I screw myself?  What can go wrong? Anyone else done it and been ok? Thanks for the info/help!

Camp Far West is officially full with water flowing over the spillway and Folsom Lake is just about at their winter capacity(55% of total max capacity). So we are doing pretty good up here so far. How's it looking down south?

Random Boat Parts For Sale / Got Heads???
« on: May 15, 2015, 04:01:43 PM »
So my engine builder and I somehow didn't communicate real well.  Somehow it was assumed I had 95-100cc chamber heads. Well I am really just sitting at 75cc.  So my compression jumped to 13 to 1. No bueno. Can't afford to run racing fuel. So I am wondering how much I should sell them for?  600? 800? 1000? 2000? Kagillion? No clue. Any help would be appreciated.  Just had them both gone through for 400+ dollars, so they are ready to rock.........just not on my engine. Thanks


P.s. Don't know a whole bunch about them unfortunately which makes it hard to figure.

Engine Mechanical / Electrical / Cam Selection
« on: May 05, 2015, 02:02:55 PM »
You know what is frustrating?  Not being smart enough or knowing enough about engines to make an educated decision on what cam to select.  So I basically have my engine 90% purchased but the cam is KILLING me.  Talked with a couple technicians on a couple of different cam sites, one was super afraid of reversion the other acted like it was no big deal.  One said one thing the other said the opposite.  I don't know.  Just kind of tough and I don't want to make the wrong decision and blow my engine up.................again.  But I do want it to perform and be a bad@ss monster.  You know what I am saying?  Think I need some cheese with my whine.   :banghead:

Gelcoat / Paint / Fireberglass Repair / Gas Stain
« on: May 03, 2015, 11:38:22 AM »
So I had some gas leak out of my tank and it stained my white paint.  I gave the boat a bath and used a couple different substances but still can't get the stain off.  Anything you guys use that might help? Thanks

« on: April 17, 2015, 05:45:12 PM »
So my birthday isn't here for a few weeks but my wife couldn't wait to give me this.  She was upset she couldn't find a jet boat for the boat in the sticker.  It is fricking hilarious though.  :thumbup:
Not sure where I will put it yet.


Anyone know where to get a sticker of a jet boat to change it?

Interior / Carpet
« on: March 24, 2015, 08:50:18 AM »
Ok, talk to me like I am an idiot.  Think I am going to try and change out the carpet before the engine goes back in.

Steps:
1)Rip out Carpet
2)Sand down old glue/wood
3)Fancy Wood Glue
4)28oz Carpet

Sound about right?
