Hi guys. Wondering if someone out there is heading out to Parker in the next couple of days with a 2” hitch. I need to get a boat out there. Trying to avoid a double trip. I live in Lancaster/Palmdale area. Boat trailer is recently serviced and has new brakes, tires and lights with 2 spares. Its all tight and legit. Registration is current and it’s insured. About 3700 lbs on trailer and 26 ft LOA. Please PM if interested. Delivery to Riverlodge on the CA side.

The No Wake Zone / 2021 Los Angeles Boat Show
« on: January 05, 2021, 04:17:04 pm »
FYI, as many of you already know, the 2021 Los Angeles boat show has been canceled. The show is typically in mid January. There is hope for a show this year though. It will most likely be re-scheduled, with a date that is TBD. The Sacramento show has already re-scheduled for late March. Click on the link for more information as it comes. Be safe out there fellas. Take care.

Random Boat Parts For Sale / WTB Step-n-trim tabs
« on: August 03, 2020, 11:47:32 am »
Hi everyone. Curious if anyone has an old set of step-n-trim tabs laying around that you would be willing to sell. Please PM if you do. Thank you

Took my Southwind out today to make sure everything was good for next weekend. Aside from losing a bearing buddy on one trailer wheel, ran great. Just put the motor back in. 455 Olds, new heads, cam, carb, headers and valve train. Motor was fresh but wanted more power. So, tore into it for no good reason. Very happy with the results.

WTB a set of Harman Marine logs (specifically that brand) for a 455 Olds. Buddy is building a 70's time capsule boat and wants to restore it to the original equipment. These are the last piece of the puzzle. Pm me if you have a set. Thanks guys

Has anyone run the marine version of this on an Olds with success? Will it prevent the damage associated with the common oiling issue? TIA

It doesn't exist, but it should. What are your thoughts guys?  My kids 22-19 year olds are river rats for life. They keep dating these non river loving people. It never works out. It's "too hot" for these un-deserving, un-worthy candidates. Would love to see my kids hook up with the right people and live the dream.

Hi guys. Was wondering if anyone knew where I could find a replacement windshield glass. My sister drove out to to Parker yesterday. A rock went through her windshield on the way there. The boat is a 1988 Four Winns Horizon 180. She is going to be there for 2 weeks. Having trouble finding the part. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you

The No Wake Zone / Affordable boat storage in Castaic
« on: August 22, 2015, 08:36:28 pm »
Just a heads up for you guys. I found this boat storage place in Castaic. Prices are downright cheap and your boat is in an enclosure. Other places close-by wanted the same amount $$ for just parking outside in the open with no shelter. For me $110 month 24x8. They were going to move me into a 28x8 for the same price.

The No Wake Zone / Engine inspection after overheating
« on: May 06, 2015, 07:17:14 pm »
Ok guys, let me start by saying, this situation is nobody's fault but my own. Ok, now that is out of the way, here is the deal. I just purchased from a member here, some BBC Indmar exhaust manifolds. They came off of a jet boat, and appeared to be in bolt-on condition. No claims were made by the seller whatsoever. Last week, I bolted them on, and posted a video of my boat running "first fire". I watch the video now and see the problem I didn't know of when I posted the video. Well the riser gaskets are slotted. This allows water to flow from the manifold inlet directly out of the exhaust. This allows very little water to enter the engine. Well here is my question. My engine (brand new last year) got stupid hot. I may very well have shut it down in time. I may have done some damage by bbq-Ing it. Please help me to investigate. The motor spins freely. I did a compression check. All of my cylinders are 105-110. I posted a pic of the spark plugs. The plugs were new last year with a couple days of run time. The oil was a fresh oil change when I installed the manifolds. It looks clean but smells burnt. What is next, should I do a leak down? Should I be worried about ring seal down the road. I am really pissed off.

My buddy flew over today and snapped these pics for me. Last year it was so low, I vowed to never return until it fills back up. Just not worth the trip.
