I may be there this weekend in the prop boat... hit me up for a cold one.  Always give respect to the jets that make it out there!

You'll need to have a resident register it in that state under their name (in NV).  You won't be able to reg it in CA w/o paying taxes.  It's not as easy as "buy there and bring it here" -or we all would do that.  Slap an extra 10-11% on those prices for ttl...   sucks huh? 

Welcome to the people republic of Kalifornia.

Help me out on this,,, you guys usually do!   In my mind the worse the pump
condition the higher the engine rpms will be.

True or false?

If true he needs a Ford engine for that doggie  ;D

that's my understanding.  a tight pump will turn less than a loose one.

GT, no offense taken.  Thanks for the clarification.

4200 with an "A" is about 300 hp +/-.  Without any details on your 454, that can be very realistic - not a problem with your pump, but you need more power.  Check and see your secondaries are opening all the way (if vacuum you need to do this under load on the water not in your driveway).  I was stuck at 4200 b/c my secondaries did not open.  Once fixed WOT was shy of 5k.

You need to pull your impeller out to see what size it is... you can't tell by looks.

It didnt look anything like this did it?

WTF happened there????

The No Wake Zone / Re: Anchoring questions
« on: April 29, 2009, 05:57:45 PM »
an anchor buoy does a few things: 
    let's you, and others, know where your line is if you leave
    keeps your holding "spot" 
    if your boat becomes detached from your anchor line - you don't loose your anchor!

You really shouldn't need a spring line.  It will take some of the jolt off the bow eye when rollers are coming, but if you bow is pulling up on your anchor you really don't have enough line out.  Now that's in a perfect world.  Where most of us boat, we don't have the luxury of pulling 7x the line per depth to properly anchor.  That's where the stretch line comes in, it takes some of the shock out of bow rise so you don't continually pull up your anchor.  Just get a few feet of bungee cord and it'll do the trick.  Don't use bungee on the shore side...

better to learn something here than the hard way in the water...  although it is fun to watch  >:D

The manufacturer is Team Hawaiian, the model is their Euro 25.  Measures about 24 or so including the euro steps (molded in).  I would have to re-measure the running surface - it length doesn't come to mind.  Without a doubt you won't get beat up like you may in the 21 footers  that are out there for more $$.  The few extra feet really make the difference, several times out the boat is full of "new found friends" for a ride back to the docks b/c of getting beat up all day in the smaller boats.

the "euro" steps (straps have been replaced on the Bimini):

I forgot to include that I had the brakes completely gone over last year:  new backing plates, assemblies, races, seals, bearings, shoes, drums, and master cylinder.  These were replaced mainly for ease of mind, I've towed this out to Havasu and didn't want a failure -figured do it once and do it right.  All tires are in good shape and there is a full size spare mounted on the trailer.  It tracks perfect without any sway.

not the clearest pic, but this is how it sits in the water with the bimini up.

some interior pics.  These pics give a better idea what the color is like, the first pics I posted was a gray overcast day...

The interior is free of rips, wear, seams separating, stainls, etc... good shape!  Cleaner than most boats a quarter it's age.  There's storage below the drivers and passengers buckets, some below the rear bench (amp stored there), plenty of room in the bow for all your stuff, ski locker, the "cube" coolers fit out of the sun and perfectly in front of the drivers and passengers feet where the subs are tucked away. 

This boat is great for anyone wanting to spend the day (or more) on the water with friends... Nice stereo with subs, 6x9's, and 6 1/2's, can probably throw matching set of 6x9's already set up to mount under the hatch when you want to beach it and listen to the tunes while relaxing.  I usually stay on the lake till after sunset so I started putting cathodes around the cabin to light up the evening cocktail hour-- a fun disco touch the ladies like  ::)

A few folks on the board have seen it at El Cap or San V and it's always been well received.

Dropping Price to 15k!!!!

Summer is here.  If you're looking for a cruiser, she's ready to go.  Don't settle for less and get beat up on those rough days.

Cheers, that's what got me out there 30+ years ago, and that's exactly what I'll do for my kids to come.

if you have a A or AA could be about right depending on how strong it is.  Check for the secondaries opening.   Mine do so ~4200.

Here's an interior shot of my cat.  Maybe you can use the gunnels to your advantage?  Glass in some mids or subs...

Mike, thanks for the info... this could be a good "sticky" on how-to cut/polish!

Some people just don't know when to quiet down.

Why is somebody with this attitude and anger a member of this board?

Serious character flaws.
