Small world! Parquer and those guys were sending me pictures of the ski that hit you this past weekend. Sounded like a wild day!

Yeah it was wild, you have a jet boat? I'm trying to get a group started for next year and maybe hit up one of the SoCal trips to havasu or something. There used to be a ton of jet boats around this area need to get those guys to pull them out of the weeds

Use to, i need to pick up another one. I had a few of them, the main one I ran around the butte on was the blue sleekcraft called obnoxious. Moved out to queen creek in Phoenix this past year for work. I got back and forth to cruces and Phoenix and havasu pretty often. I'll shoot you a PM

Yeah I've done a ton of work in a short amount of time. Lots of stuff I never posted. But thanks for following it that's awesome, it will be in the water soon. Luckily it didn't tear it up too bad

Man that is terrible luck. Glad you're alright so you can get her back on the water! Quick question though, where did you get the carpet you put in the boat and what type is it?? I have to do mine this winter.

So I insured my boat the day before I got in the accident. Of course the rental place is being a pain with getting my boat fixed. Anyway I haven't told my insurance yet however I just received a letter saying my policy will end next month do to it being high performance? I'm assuming just because it has headers... what a joke it was sold from the factory that way and they are perfectly legal. So how do I get insured?

Do you insure through her? How is it? Why is it difficult to insure them?

I don't have insurance quite yet on the bahner but is on the front burner for sure.
I've seen a bunch of guys on here that are very happy with it.
She's hip on jet boats  knows the makes and model plus the crazy shit we do to them so the coverage is out there it's up to you  how much of what you got you wanna cover.

As quickly as possible you need to take the boat to a qualified shop and get an estimate. Probably 3 of 'em.

Then send estimate(s) to the jet ski rental company. Certified Mail, Signature required. Notify him that you have already contacted the State of New Mexico Attorney General.

And, Well , notify the Attorney General.

Try Here: http://www.nmag.gov/file-a-complaint.aspx

This is NO BULLSHIT.

Fawker hit your boat. He Better Pay up.

Well I got my ass handed to me by a bass boat. I did have 4 people in the boat, but he walked me bad. What's next? my buddy recommended a blower... 454, performance heads. Roller cam. I believe it's a AA impeller, droop. Thought it ran good till that guy drove right by me. Boat only turns 4,000 but I don't wanna be sucking fuel like a B impeller is what my old man said he had in it before. Like to turn about 4,800 wide open I think.

I'm thinking the same thing. It's healthy for sure, and phone gps I've had it up to 65 with probably a lil more to go. Just crazy how fast some of those fishing boats are.

Has the engine been apart yet?  I would start looking into what exactly you have now.  From there, you can make educated decisions on where to go.

Judging by your RPM with both a AA and a B cut, I'm going to make a guess that you have very low compression.  Any change in cylinder heads, cam, and intake will result in lower cylinder pressure and reduced efficiency and power without increasing compression.

Could make some suggestions if you wanted to describe your current engine combo.  Even compression test numbers would help.

Good luck,

Joe
