The No Wake Zone / Re: Seal leaking on jet
« on: May 04, 2022, 07:08:14 am »
Sorry it?s water, it?s allowing water into the boat. You can see a steady stream coming from that area down into the bilge. The shaft seems to have an ever so slight movement to it

The No Wake Zone / Seal leaking on jet

Hey all, seems that a leak has developed from the seal inside the boat where the shaft goes into the drive.  Has anyone seen this? Know what might cause the leak? Is it hard to replace? I also hear a grinding noise from the area while under power. Any input would be great. Thanks!

Topock / Laughlin / Re: Laughlin to Pirates cove

Has anyone made the launch from the Riverside in Laughlin to pirates cove ? I want to try it but I don?t think it?s possible without fueling up again .

I did this last weekend, I was actually having issues with the pickup tube on my right tank, so it was almost unusable. I went to pirates cove and Topock nearly full throttle all the way down and cruised back and used about 28 gal of fuel total for the round. Hope this helps!

Right on! I?ve heard these are kind of rare but I?ve seen a handful now. There was another open bow in Topock Saturday

So I picked this thing up in December and the fist thing I did was restore the trailer. So far I?ve really just stayed close to home doing some testing. Some of the issues have been:

Fuel not sucking from right tank (fixed, pickup tube was missing)

Tank switch (replaced)

Running too rich (has an 850 carb which is a bit too big, plan to het down and tune next)

Didn?t have cleats (installed)

Missing swim platforms (on their way in)

Trailer was junk (totally restored)

And a few other convenience add ons.

I?ve been from willow to cottonwood and fro Laughlin to Topock so far. Havasu this weekend. I?m looking at getting some machine work done on the impeller and jet and possibly a tunnel Ram. Currently I got it to 74 mph, goal is 85.

Hey all,
    I don?t have Facebook so I was looking for a place to learn more about my money pit and stumbled on this group! Seems like a lot of knowledge in here! I purchased a 1989 Top Line from a friend, seems like a pretty rare boat, can?t find a lot of info on it. Does anyone know anything about these??
