We just purchased our first home . I'm just wondering if there is anyone from that area in here . I still have tons of work to do on the house but we are hoping to be there this summer . So any info on lakes or jet boat hang outs would be cool. I also need some contractor/roofer work if anyone knows someone in the area  Thanks for any info

While I am doing some maintenance I took my carb off to freshen it up . I need some advice and/or opinions.  I removed the choke . I don't think I need it . Mabey I do not really sure . My question is what do I do with the hole that the choke arm went through the carb housing ? Can I leave it open or should I close it some how ?

Engine Mechanical / Electrical / Steering cable stiffness
« on: June 21, 2017, 05:19:14 PM »
Just a question here . I bought a new telafax rack and pinion a few years back . The boat has sat a few years because of lakes being low in my area . Now I'm using it agin and the steering is super stiff . So is there a way to lube or get the stiffness out for the season or should I just buy another new one . I would think they should last more than 4 years . I already took it out and tryd to spray some lube in but it's still stiff. Thanks any help is greatly appreciated.

Engine Mechanical / Electrical / Exhaust hose option
« on: April 11, 2017, 05:00:32 PM »
I have logs and snails and bought new hoses I think 3 1/2 or 3 5/8 but have always had trouble getting them to fit right . So I looked at cp performance and they only sale 3 1/2 or 4 " . I already wasted the money on the wrong size hose no big deal . But my question is do I go with the 4 " hose or is there a better option.  I'm kind of concerned that the 4 " will be to big . The tips are plastic so not sure if I should go solid pipe or just stay with the rubber hose . Thanks in advance for any help or input .

Suggestions / Support / Beware !!! East 40
« on: November 07, 2016, 11:42:20 PM »
Most of you mite know but I just wanted to let those who didn't know if your traveling thru Amarillo Texas on the East 40 ... it's a death trap !! Especially if you have California plates. I had to travel back east for a death in the family and I thought it would be better to go by car ... well I was wrong . Made it through Arizona and new Mexico.  Started the second day and all of a sudden hit amarilo. .. let me tell you ... it turned into an episode of cops ... we and my mom got pulled over ...she was driving.  The Tropper said he was giving her a warning and asked any wepons drugs and so on ...we said no ... can I search. . We said sure ...all of a sudden this mother fucker pulls me out of the car then starts searching the car ...a rental. ..and comes back with some green sucker and a small jar of grass . I am a California medical marajana patient with current and correct paperwork with me . This sucker and grass IS NOT MINE ! all my grass is labeled with code and unaltered. So he pulls my mom out of the car and shit gets real ... he starts telling me that he knew it was in there .. I tell him hell no THAT SHIT IS NOT MINE !  Now he has me and my mom on the side of the rode in bum fuck Egypt and my mom is trying to defend me ...he starts cussing and degrading my mom all while I'm trying to stay calm ... he puts me in cuffs mom gets more crazy ... I tell her to stop ....STOP... mom SHUT THE FUCK UP .  I tell him where MY grass is and he tosses the hole car with his other 2 Tropper buddy's ... they find nothing else .. his dog couldn't find anything so he turns back to my mom and cussing her agin while I'm in cuffs and says... you smell like beer ... by this time I'M FUCKING PISSED. .. so he puts me in his SUV and gives mom a subriaty test ...she passes. But he will not stop. So we had a cooler in the back seat with 2 sprites and 2 waters ... so he pulled it out and says ... it smells like beer ... he pours it out takes her license and says fowlow me .... I'm sitting in his cruzer watching this the whole time . He books me for a gram to less than a gram of hash ... witch in the state of Texas is a felony. . He rights my mom a ticket for open container witch is $380 . I spend the night in jail ... they never read me my meranda rights till the next day ...never tell me what I'm charged with ... don't give me my bond price. . And tell my mom she can sleep in the parking lot until my bond is set . You could imagine what this would cause anyone.  There's alot more that gose with this as far as them steeling the cash I had on me and the bail bondsman and the attorney the bail bondsman recamened.  There all in each other's pockets. ...BEWARE IF YOUR TRAVELING EAST 40 THOUGH AMARILO TEXAS.

Jet Pumps / Loader or not to Loader
« on: May 23, 2016, 04:55:36 PM »
I was under my trailer re wiring my lights that seem to go out all the time so upgrading to double insulated wire . So I was under the intake and I see this . Is this a loader and if so is it a good one bad one . And luckily I took a look because 2 bolts are completely gone and 2 are on there way out . Next what should I do to fix this . I know it's probably been said before but I am not sure if it's through bolted or not . I'll have to take a better look on the inside. 
Thanks in advance for any help .

So I removed my bow rail and windshield. Have wanted to do this for a while . I think it looks alot better .... some mite not ... my question is I plan on doing a full repair of the gel coat next year or so . But what should I do with these dam holes not to cause damage or make the proper fix a PITA.  I don't want to just put some replacement circles there ...

The No Wake Zone / Buyers Guide
« on: November 03, 2015, 03:41:19 PM »
Just looking for some advice here . I'm looking at a "newer" boat . The wife really dosent care for my cruiser as much as I do . She hates the way it rides . So here's my question. When buying a used boat from a dealer that says they have been through the hole boat with all the checks and made sure every thing works and fixed what didn't work . What is the best way not get ripped off . I know what to look for in the older jets but this is an 2005 and not sure if I should pay a macanic to look at it...and not really sure how the dealer is gona act if I did so . By the way this is a full service boat dealer ..
Thanks in advance for any opinions and or advice.

Hulls / Warhawk TX 19 clones ?
« on: September 24, 2015, 06:39:24 PM »
What's up .. been awhile  I was just looking for a little info on these boats .  Are they as good as the Youngblood ? I know there alot cheeper in some cases and newer.  My thinking was find one for a fair price and throw my wallet at the power plant and the pump . I found a pretty nice one for a fair price but it's a drive and don't like the paint scheme so taking that in mind also . I don't mind the work it will take to make it a nice boat and the way I want it ...I'm just looking for my Hot Rod boat and just wondering if any one knows anything about theses boats .

Thanks .
