Mike Buschman, his son Kelly and James Rankin came out to Vegas Friday to deliver the pump and do a final cut n buff on the paint job. Got the pump installed. Today I get to start rigging steering, diverter, forward/reverse along with starting wiring the gauges. Also huge thanks to Scott and Tim at Place Diverter for sending me the seals I needed for final assembly of the pump.

That isn't something you can just buy. It was custom made for the boat.

Some quick updates. Got the transom adapter back from Buschman for a quick paint job. Got it on and sealed up. Also got the center console all wired up and ready to drop in. Also we got a sneak peek of the motor from Bostick, it's coming along nicely! Lastly I got the gas tanks cleaned out. Got new level sender's on order for those too.

Got some new rubber on the trailer. The tires were donated from Famous Tire Co. out of Banning and Yucaipa. Also got another box from CP Performance with the breathers Bostick needed for the valve covers he's putting on this motor.

Motor is pretty much assembled. Bostick did an awesome job. Tons of huge thanks and lots of appreciation to him. This whole boating community thanks you James for your hard work you put into making sure we all get up and running and stay running.

Pump is about done. Got all the cables hooked up and sealed properly. Just gotta shorten up the steering extension I have. Also put on the new ratcheting transom straps.
