WarZone / Three lakes
« on: June 19, 2019, 06:33:08 PM »
Me, my buddy in my old boat, our buddy in his v-drive and my other buddy are all heading to 3 lakes Wisconsin for the shootout deal...we have never been. Should be a great time. I leave in 5 hours to start my 8 hour drive there. The red dot is the house we rented for 4 days and the runway is right next to the house. I'm pumped. Should be super neat

The No Wake Zone / An fittings
« on: January 13, 2019, 07:45:11 AM »
Hey Bob, in another post you said something about getting a vise block to help make up new lines with AN fittings....what is that? I had to make some new lines for my boat mid season this year and it was kinda a pain but me and a buddy got it done. Can you post up a picture of it please and how much does it cost and does it help that much to where it's worth getting? Thanks

We pulled the motor today, pump is coming apart and gonna be getting powder coated, gas tanks are drained and the boat will be getting flipped and having the bottom redone along with the sides i believe. And i think we are gonna be workin on the trailer some too. Im glad she is getting a new lease on life

The No Wake Zone / Three lakes shootout
« on: February 07, 2018, 09:18:05 AM »
Has anybody ever been to the 3 lakes shootout in Wisconsin? I was just wondering how it was.... I just heard about it recently and i think me and 2 other buddies are gonna bring our jets up there from missouri to play amd run in it. It sounds like a good time from what i have read....i would love to come play with yall in cali but the 3 lakes thing is a little over 1/3 of the way to cali. So it would be way cheaper for all of us. But hopefully next year i can attend an event with yall

Gelcoat / Paint / Fireberglass Repair / Floor seperation
« on: June 22, 2017, 06:43:12 PM »
 My boat still has the original floors from 81 and they and the stringers look great. But the floor in the middle has seperated or pulled away from the stringer maybe an 1/8 of an inch. Im helping my buddy build a duck boat and he has some extra polyester resin. My question is, can i just pour some in the gap to seal it up so water wont get in between there and rot anything out? I know its not a permanent fix, but i was just wondering if that would work for the rest of the season anyways or what yall think. Thank you for any info and help/suggestions

We left friday after work from st.louis and got to bullhead city saturday at around noon. The PO couldnt have been a better guy. He offered us to sleep on his couch and all. He let us hang out with him and his family all evening poolside in his backyard as we watched all the people playing on the river and we waited for it to calm down so it would be safe enough we could test drive it. He let us drink his beer, he fed us...he was a great guy. But anyways, we took it to havasu on sunday and sat in the channel all day. And monday we put in at pirates cove and ran down through the gorge. Really wish missouri was like that. Its gorgeous!!!

Engine Mechanical / Electrical / starter going out?
« on: August 17, 2016, 06:37:57 PM »
So i turn the key, it barely cranks then makes a kind of grinding noise...turn key back and retry, cranks a littke more and does the same thing. 3 or 4 times of that and the. It turns over fine and starts... i pulled the starter today and looked at the teeth on it and the fly wheel. They looked perfectly fine on both. None were bent or shaved down or anything... tested the started and it seemed to jump out far enough and sounded just fine. Do yall think that maybe it is just getting tired? And where is a good place to get one? Thanks for any advice and help.

Jet Pumps / nozzle inserts
« on: March 27, 2016, 06:20:37 PM »
Was just curious... do nozzle inserts make much of a difference? I have a droop amd diverter on my boat. Would there be much of an advantage if any to getting one?

WTB / splash guard
« on: March 26, 2016, 08:11:39 PM »
I'm thinking about putting a splash guard on my boat and was just kinda trying to get an idea of what they cost or how hard they are to get ahold of. It would be put on a 78 bahner. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks, nick

The No Wake Zone / bahners
« on: March 14, 2016, 05:13:12 PM »
Hey all, just had a random question if anybody wants to chime in. I was just wondering what yalls opinions are about bahners and if they are good hulls? Reason being is that I'm leaving st.louis Wednesday after work and driving to cali to pick up my new boat. It is a 1978 with a 545 cubic inch bbf making an estimated 650 horse. I'm soo pumped. And then me and my buddy are stopping at havasu for the day on saturday. Havasu has been on our bucket list and I'm so excited to be able to check that off my bucket list and make one of my dreams come true. So let me know what yall think about them. Thanks, nick
