Hey guys been a bad week. My dad passed away last tuesday. Im going to spread his ashes in the san Francisco bay 3/4 mile off shore. I know salt water aint good so i maybe looking for a new set of headers soon. Im not gonna be in it very long maybe a half hour or so. Then cruse it up into the fresh water to flush it. We were just out on October 5 at buena vista and he pulled me sking and bbq for my ol ladys bday. So if any advise for salt water would help

Sorry for your loss.

His send off will be epic. Godspeed.


Spray all the aluminum and chrome with wd 40. Helps keep the salt corrosion away, and easy to clean up. (Valve covers, intake, etc.)
Wash the trailer really good, too.

Well here are pics from yesterday. We started out at vierias resort and jetted to rustys porthole for drinks then the sugarbarge and then back to vierias. We hung out for a bit then went out for a evening run to rio vista the point and had a beer. Then we cruise back to the cabin. Boat ran good still have to figure out whats going on with the driver side gas tank it is starting to bog again. Im gonna change the fuel line i think.
