WarZone / Anybody recognize this badass hand drawn picture?
« on: June 13, 2021, 06:44:11 AM »
I pulled the seats in my boat for the first time since owning it and I found a badass hand drawn picture that is laminated to the bottom of the drivers seat. Im wondering if the original colors of my boat were red and white like in the picture

The No Wake Zone / Safety and life jackets
« on: June 12, 2020, 06:03:21 PM »
Yall please be safe and make sure you wear your jackets. I was out on the mississippi river yesterday here in Missouri and on one side of the island and hanging out and making a few passes and on the other side a guy in an outboard eliminator blew over and had to be airlifted out. He was wearing a life jacket and some off duty fireman pulled him from the river and took him to the nearest marina and started cpr while waiting on the helo.... he passed away a few hours later in the hospital.....RIP Pete... I didnt know anything about it till I hooked the boat on the trailer and pulled out and drove over to look at his boat tied up and taped off with police caution tape....he wasnt new to boating, has been boating his whole life, has several boats but had just bought this one a few weeks ago....I had took today off to go boating for my birthday....never did I think I would be boating down river with 2 dozen Roses in my passenger seat.....this hit way too close to home....and definitely and eye opener and messed me up....everyone please be safe and cautious. Dont over do it and just play it safe

The No Wake Zone / St.louis 2020 season
« on: March 27, 2020, 11:04:18 AM »
The 2020 season here is gonna be amazing. We are adding some new additions to the stl go fast boats group this season. A few more hydrostreams will be joing us this year. ( 1 of which is mine ) A buddy is upping the boost on his jetski to 32 psi this year and said he should be running in the 105 mph range. We just went and dipped my buddys new v-drive ( his first v-drive) in the harbor on the Mississippi river where we boat yesterday and fired it up and checked for leaks. No water leaks, found a small fuel leak that we gotta get buttoned up but other than that went good. A different buddy is having some makeover work done to his v-drive in texas right now. All in all its gonna be a great and rowdy year out here for us if the river will work with us and let us play. Its about to flood right now. The guy in the Argo drove it to the fuel dock and filled it up so he had a way to get to work when the water covers the road.

« on: June 19, 2019, 06:33:08 PM »
Me, my buddy in my old boat, our buddy in his v-drive and my other buddy are all heading to 3 lakes Wisconsin for the shootout deal...we have never been. Should be a great time. I leave in 5 hours to start my 8 hour drive there. The red dot is the house we rented for 4 days and the runway is right next to the house. I'm pumped. Should be super neat

The No Wake Zone / An fittings
« on: January 13, 2019, 07:45:11 AM »
Hey Bob, in another post you said something about getting a vise block to help make up new lines with AN fittings....what is that? I had to make some new lines for my boat mid season this year and it was kinda a pain but me and a buddy got it done. Can you post up a picture of it please and how much does it cost and does it help that much to where it's worth getting? Thanks

We pulled the motor today, pump is coming apart and gonna be getting powder coated, gas tanks are drained and the boat will be getting flipped and having the bottom redone along with the sides i believe. And i think we are gonna be workin on the trailer some too. Im glad she is getting a new lease on life

The No Wake Zone / Three lakes shootout
« on: February 07, 2018, 09:18:05 AM »
Has anybody ever been to the 3 lakes shootout in Wisconsin? I was just wondering how it was.... I just heard about it recently and i think me and 2 other buddies are gonna bring our jets up there from missouri to play amd run in it. It sounds like a good time from what i have read....i would love to come play with yall in cali but the 3 lakes thing is a little over 1/3 of the way to cali. So it would be way cheaper for all of us. But hopefully next year i can attend an event with yall

Gelcoat / Paint / Fireberglass Repair / Floor seperation
« on: June 22, 2017, 06:43:12 PM »
 My boat still has the original floors from 81 and they and the stringers look great. But the floor in the middle has seperated or pulled away from the stringer maybe an 1/8 of an inch. Im helping my buddy build a duck boat and he has some extra polyester resin. My question is, can i just pour some in the gap to seal it up so water wont get in between there and rot anything out? I know its not a permanent fix, but i was just wondering if that would work for the rest of the season anyways or what yall think. Thank you for any info and help/suggestions

We left friday after work from st.louis and got to bullhead city saturday at around noon. The PO couldnt have been a better guy. He offered us to sleep on his couch and all. He let us hang out with him and his family all evening poolside in his backyard as we watched all the people playing on the river and we waited for it to calm down so it would be safe enough we could test drive it. He let us drink his beer, he fed us...he was a great guy. But anyways, we took it to havasu on sunday and sat in the channel all day. And monday we put in at pirates cove and ran down through the gorge. Really wish missouri was like that. Its gorgeous!!!

Engine Mechanical / Electrical / starter going out?
« on: August 17, 2016, 06:37:57 PM »
So i turn the key, it barely cranks then makes a kind of grinding noise...turn key back and retry, cranks a littke more and does the same thing. 3 or 4 times of that and the. It turns over fine and starts... i pulled the starter today and looked at the teeth on it and the fly wheel. They looked perfectly fine on both. None were bent or shaved down or anything... tested the started and it seemed to jump out far enough and sounded just fine. Do yall think that maybe it is just getting tired? And where is a good place to get one? Thanks for any advice and help.
