Do you have a website for this midnight performance guy? I would appreciate it!

Official website is coming soon, but Facebook in the meantime is and the phone number is (714) 686-0053  :thumbup:

Yes it is, but I'm willing to take the boat pretty much anywhere in So Cal. Any recommendations?

Midnight Performance handles my rigging needs for my day cruiser.  They have done a refresh when I first purchased, pump, cables, hardware upgrades, bilge pump, hydraulic place diverter, to this season they will be handling a ride plate, some new gauges, general maintenance I do not have the space to perform, and hopefully some other improvements budget permitting.  There is a lot of value there in experience and services provided from a stand up dude.

Thanks for the compliment, and nothing personal about only wanting to do my own sets, I am sure you do top notch work to, just a policy, and I know Sam can paint circles around me any day of the week.  :thumbup:

Hey 5150,
Thanks for the interest, but I have tried this in the past and it didn't work out, I couldn't guarantee the quality result on someone elses wood quality and construction.  Glad to hear more people are playing in SoCal though, for a long time no one had even heard of it when I first started playing and building.

How much will you charge for a set?


Sent from my iPhone using SoCalJetBoats

Lot of variables go into it of course, just like building a boat, number of colors, complexity of design etc, but 95 out of 100 sets I do cost between 240 and 280, some a little less, some a bit more.  The winger set and the Hallett set were 260 for example, with bags.

Bad ass, especially if your first go around.  Its my little side hobby building these, its how I keep gas in the Nordic.  Some recent sets of mine. 

Audio / Re: iPod to Amp hook up
« on: June 25, 2013, 09:30:26 AM »
Thanks for the additional tips guys, I will be out on Parker for ten days this week and will check to see if that switch wire was defective/not hooked up after I pulled the inputs off and hooked the iPod up, something else to check.  The weird part is the head unit would work perfectly fine by memory, and I would just swap the leads to the iPod and do nothing else different, and could not get any sound, maybe the head unit itself was shutting off and killing the switch power to the amp.  I will have a look.

Its funny, I had progressive last year for about 400 a year, engine cover and stock motor, and then on renewal they wanted another 150.  I switched to I cant remember who for about 400 a year, gonna have to really look at this again this year if some of you guys are getting it for about 100 a year.  22 foot boat worth 10k shouldn't be any different than what you guys have.

Another user of the Valvoline VR-1, anything with high zinc should be just fine though.

Its probably one of the worst things I have every been through, and it will be even worse with my boy now when the time comes.  I thought about posting one of those rainbow bridge poems that are really nice but those just make me tear up more.  The important thing to remember is you saved this dog and gave him a way better life than he would have had normally, he was forever grateful for that.  Hold your head high.  Sorry again for your loss.

I still have my first car, got it in 1996 when I was 16.  A 1969 Chevelle, at the time was a 305 small block chevy out of an 1980 camaro, turbo 400, and a 10 bolt.  Nowadays its a little faster, 421 CI small block, and running deep in the 11's on pump gas and driven 50 miles to the track.

Yeah, did the same on my Nordic, super easy.  Just bought the pedal and cable from Rex, and left the original handle in to handle the Forward/Not Forward drive shifting.

Thanks guys, fortunately I have been doing as Brad recommends, just slowly bringing it up til it clears out.  I will try bringing the diverter up next time out and seeing if that helps out as well.  :thumbup:

The No Wake Zone / Air Locking the pump
« on: October 25, 2012, 09:28:51 AM »
Hello All,
Past couple of times I have taken the barge out, I have air locked the pump on the launch.  I have changed a few different things on the set up so not sure what exactly has allowed this to now happen.  Not too big of a deal, but wondering if anyone else suffers from it or if there are certain techniques on launching to help prevent it.  Reverse bucket up? Down? Any advice will be appreciated.

The Eliminator factory has been really pushing their interior services recently as well.  I like West Coast's designs the best every time but I have heard they are usually a decent amount more expensive.

Was on the water briefly in Parker this past weekend, the conditions were awesome, my alternator belt shredding was not.  New fuel pump and wedge installed though  :thumbup:  Hopefully I can get out again this weekend for the jet barge nationals.

I think this is a great idea.  The first time I liked having the worlds largest under bow storage ever was when we house boated on Mojave.  I had to go back to the landing to grab some guys that were arriving the next day and was able to take their 3 giant coolers, many cases of beer, a washoo's set, a cornhole boards set, EZ up, sleeping bags, pillows, you get the idea.  All in one trip.  My flattie owner friend wanted to nickname it "the ferry" but I settled for "the barge".

Mine is 21'9" and I am a little over the 220lb mark right now so I think I am going to have to do a light fuel load to stay "competitive"

Audio / Re: iPod to Amp hook up
« on: May 29, 2012, 12:33:07 PM »
Just had the boat out on Parker again for Memorial, was playing around under the bow with the amp, turning the various knobs and such and unfortunately still no luck.  Got the head unit working which was good, but still confused how when I take the leads from the head unit out of the "INPUT"  jacks on the amp and plug in my ipod with a tested cable that I still do not get sound.  Unless anyone else has any other ideas on what to try I guess it comes down to buying a new head unit with a dedicated iPod jack unfortunately.  Any and all ideas welcome.

Water is definitely gonna suck even more with this crazy wind they are getting tomorrow. I might not even get mine in the water if that's the case, oh well, jack daniels and fishing it is.

I will be there, got a trailer at Riverland.  Yeah, the water is gonna suck for sure.

Yeah, ran the RCA's into the "input" on the side of the amp, will try turning the knobs up when I have it next on Memorial weekend.  I will be at Parker so anyone sees me out and about don't hesitate to say hi.
