Events / Annual SCJB Fall Get Together
« on: August 16, 2011, 05:26:19 pm »
This year's dates are Friday 10/7/11 to Monday 10/10/11. In years past we've been at the Avi, and it's always worked out for us. Unfortunately they've got new management that's a pain in the ass. That being said, this year our host hotel is going to be the River Palms in Laughlin http://www.river-palms.com/. They were super accomodating to our needs, they've got great room rates and secure boat parking.

We can launch from a number of places but Big Bend State Park is the closest, and it's reasonably priced and we can go anywhere from there that we'd normally go http://parks.nv.gov/bb.htm

Room rates are as follows;

Friday 10/7/11-$42.99
Saturday 10/8/11-$42.99
Sunday 10/9/11-$17.99

There is the usual $50 charge to cover any damages, you don't get charged this unless you damage shit, so be good and save your $$$. They have rooms that take pets, they've waived the pet fee but not the deposit that you'll get back provided Fido doesn't eat the TV.

As soon as I have confirmation I will post up the group code. Reservations are on you, you have until 14 days before the event to make the reservation & get the rates.

See you in October

The No Wake Zone / What would scjb do?
« on: July 14, 2011, 09:19:42 am »
I'm big on principle, you treat others as you expect to be treated, your word is your bond. I recently went to work for a contractor that talked the talk, now it appears that it was all a dog & pony show. I have other work, its just not steady. Do I compromise my principle, call him on it, or tell him to go piss up a rope?

The No Wake Zone / Cool Pic from the LA Times
« on: June 01, 2011, 05:22:00 pm »


Aug. 15, 1971: Sonny DiMarco of Sun Valley goes airborne when his boat disintegrates in a finish-line crash at the National Drag Boat Assn. races at Long Beach Marine Stadium.

DiMarco escaped with only minor injuries. In a separate accident, Gary Cornwall of Reno suffered a broken leg.

Larry Hill of Fresno, drove his boat, Mr. Ed, to a new speed record of 202.46 mph in front of a crowd of 15,800 fans.

Random Boat Parts For Sale / Rewarder T/T BBC headers & tips
« on: March 06, 2011, 02:22:36 pm »
These headers are 2 years old, but they've never even been bolted onto an engine. They're in great shape, have all the water lines, injection fittings, new T fitting, downturn style with elbows. Comes with Dana Marine 4" polished S/S exhaust tips with internal S/S flappers. I changed my mind. Total cost for this shit new is $1350, I want $1000.

Engine Mechanical / Electrical / E85
« on: July 23, 2010, 03:08:05 pm »
Ok, so I've read a few posts on different sites about E85. I see Romper Stomper is going this route with his setup. Does anyone have any information, either firsthand or that they've read that you care to share? Mind you I probably wouldn't do a conversion since there's not a fucking e85 place within 75 miles of my house. BUT, I want to know about it. Pros and cons.

Thanks

The No Wake Zone / CP Performance
« on: July 21, 2010, 02:36:40 pm »
A couple of weeks ago CP posted up on RDP that if you PM your name and address to them, they'll ship you a catalog, free. I did this and I have to tell you, I'm very impressed with the catalog on more than one front. It's a nice layout, easy to navigate. Printed on nice heavy stock, not going to fall apart in a month. They have a HUGE selection of parts, from stock replacement to performance products, for just about any type of pleasure boat you can think of. Jet, Vdrive, I/O, you name it, they seem to have it.

The only downside  is that they didn't include a price sheet, not an issue if you're ordering something from home, you just look up the part on the website and there's the price.

All in all, very refreshing to know that I can pretty much do all my boat parts shopping in one place.  :thumbup:

Thanks Brad and CP Performance
