    The hull had been in the Arizona sun for nearly 4 years before I got it and at least a year after I got it. If you wiped your hand on the deck it would leave the same powder(?) as if you wiped your hand on a chalk board! Im super excited on Jeremy's build and have some really cool stuff planned coming soon.

    It was. JPense bought it from me after last season and is doing all the work. Soon, we will get into some cool stuff...not quite like the Peterson stuff, but cool in a different way. Actually, those PC's are more like artwork, and we will be looking to those boats as inspiration...Im kinda speaking for him, but Im excited!!

    Default Project Update

    Help! I have a couple of questions that I was hoping to get some help with:

    1. The ride plate appears to be flush with the bottom of the boat, however, there is a gap from the end of the plate to the keels on the intake. Is this ok? Seems a bit weird but this is how I picked it up? Suggestions?
    2. I have been looking around, but still need some advice on a loader. The motor should be between 500-550 hp, pump has an A cut aluminum impellar.


    Any help would be much appreciated!

    Call Chris at B1 Racing, he built a bad azz loader for my boat and is working with me to design a new shoe for it. From your pics, it looks like the ride plate is one piece with the shoe built in?

    Im pretty sure the rideplate is mounted below the shoe, it was my boat before he went to town on it. Its weird, and definitely not right...but Jdizzle doesnt want to reset the intake, even though he's put at least 500 hrs into it.! If it was a nice shaped leading edge I'd suggest to go with it, but it is the opposite of what one would shoot for... imagine a lemon peel with one high side, two points down. Thats what the biting edge looks like. I know that cannot be good, but maybe some massaging can fix the problem? Nobody needs to get hurt because an intake set incorrectly...just saying...
