Went there and got on water till they found out I had no baffles and they didn't even know what baffles where or where to look for them he asked me if they were working due to the three cop cars at the launch ramp said sounded loud!!!!🚤💨💨💨 always put a towel under motor then stop and pull out before pulling in works out for me nice and dry for there so called inspection. I told the guy I thought by that sticker I have that says muscle means I can carry them hahahaha!!!!!!!

yep.....hes better than you so you must be treated as such....right? :o :screwy:  unbelievable.

well lesson learned i guess eh....  when i took mine to lake perris, i stopped before getting near inspection area to check for water....sure enough....it was there.  soaked it up with a towel.  rest of boat was good.  i made it thru no problem. boat was a pile of shit....but thats another thread..... i hear silverwood is strict also.  elsinore....seems more laxed from what im told.  i havent been on that lake in nearly 15 years.  water color and smell turned me off from going back.  things could be different now. 

cheers  :beer:

Yup, lesson learned. Like I said, this is my first boat ownership so it's inevitable. Just wanted to give this thing a shakedown and make a list of things I need to address. Already saw some fuel leaking from the choke when it was running in the driveway.

Thank you for this! Definitely going to apply this on my next outing before I head out. Seems obvious now.

I brought her home(and everything I had for the engine build) for the first time at our new place.  Damn, feels good.  Even if she is stupid dirty.

Video of first fire of the year. Just put motor back in. Nothing special. Boat is a mess. Garage is a mess. None of that matters right now. I'm just a little closer to gettin' wet. All I need is my pump to be finished now. Sorry, not the best video. Enjoy!

Finally got all the water outta my motor! Between a stuck bassett valve and running on 2 dead cylinders my motor got filled up with water and fuel.
