The No Wake Zone / To Jon, the guy that did me a solid yesterday at work
« on: February 13, 2016, 03:07:15 PM »
I was at work yesterday, noticed a crew out on the street doing asphalt patching. I needed 2 small patches on my site so I went out and asked if they could help me out. I walk up to the foreman and as soon as we introduce ourselves he asked me if I'm on SCJB. I was wearing a hat that he noticed. Well we talk about what I need and he says he would take care of me. We ended up talking for a while about his boat, my boat, his new boat(but it's a V-drive). Stand up family man. I didn't get his contact info so figured I could post on here and let it be known that he is a good guy. I owe you beers, Jon. Thanks again.

The No Wake Zone / Anybody know if this is worth anything?
« on: October 06, 2015, 01:44:09 PM »
I'm about to gut a bank and there are a few things inside that I can have if they're worth anything. Anybody know anything about this stuff? One is a combo stove, oven, fridge, sink. The other stuff is a bunch of safety deposit boxes. I have all the keys.

Engine Mechanical / Electrical / How to adjust adjustable push rods?
« on: September 12, 2015, 06:18:05 PM »
I had them I'm the same order that I pulled them out but one side got mixed up so they aren't going in how they came out. I'm assuming they get adjusted the same as an adjustable roller rocker but want to make sure I do it right.  Is there a specific way to adjust them?

Can I drill and tap the back coolant ports on my manifold and either return them to the thermostat housing or just dump them out the back? Seems like it would help with cooling of the back cylinders.

My buddy is about to buy a boat, it is a 78 18" waikiki bubbledeck. I found that it is a copy of a Kona. Does anybody know anything about this hull?

Jet Pumps / Last one, I promise. Steering shaft needed!
« on: August 19, 2015, 06:43:08 PM »
So I tried to adjust the nut on the steering shaft and well... this just happened. Does anybody have or know where I can get a new steering shaft? Like yesterday. Nothing like last minute crunch to get ready.

Jet Pumps / Droop won't fit over pointed plug on bowl?
« on: August 19, 2015, 04:12:07 PM »
How do I fix this? I certainly don't want to have to notch the droop. Is there a different plug I can get that isn't pointed?

Jet Pumps / Torque specs
« on: August 19, 2015, 03:39:01 PM »
What is the torque spec for the bolts that hold the suction housing to the intake? What about the droop to the bowl? I want to make sure I do it right. I can't see the numbers on the Berkeley documents from my phone. Thanks.

I would like to get away from the old points style distributor that I have now. It works fine as is but I would like to upgrade it. What do you guys recommend? My friend that helped tune the carbs told me to just get the conversion cap for it but if I can do even better by completely swapping then I may just do that. Engine is a mildly modified 461 olds.

Gelcoat / Paint / Fireberglass Repair / How to remove this paint
« on: August 02, 2015, 01:54:29 PM »
How can I get this paint off? It is just painted on top of the gel coat. Rubbing compound with a buffer? Wet sand?

The No Wake Zone / Boat insurance
« on: July 18, 2015, 08:36:36 AM »
What is a good company to get insurance for my boat? I have been using progressive for years and they won't insure it because of the "exposed engine".

Boat Showcase / new boat owner, '69 16' Tahiti
« on: July 11, 2015, 03:40:06 PM »
Just picked this up yesterday. 1969 16' Tahiti. mildly built 461 olds. I have a list of things done to it but no exact specs. Cleaned her up today and made a list of things to do to get her on the water in the next week or two. Also need to shorten the trailer as it had 2 seadoo mounts on the front of the trailer. 26' is a little long for a 16' boat.
