    Nice lookin' boat! ...i would fill all the little screw holes with a combo of resin & sawdust...works great...i would polish the TT covers & leave it at that ...i would also switch the exhaust pipes around (left to right, right to left) to give the ski rope more clearance on the tow!...exhaust gets blazeing hot & could melt the rope! ...as mentioned, a AA imp might be too much, especially if the motor is stock!...see how it runs & then consider a B or C imp...just my .02 cents

    I like it.

    I'd ditch the OT's, they don't do anything 'cept make noise. I'd fill the holes you mentioned and take off the transom eyes. It didn't leave the shop with them in there. An old school Covico style 3 spoke steering wheel would look fantastic on there too. You can still get them at Moon. White, red flake, blue flake anything would look better than that wheel on there now. But that's just me.

    The boat's sitting too far back on the trailer. You need to slide it forward an inch or two so you'll have about an inch of bunk sticking out past the bottom of the hull.

    Ditto.....a blue or red 'flaked wheel would rule......

    Cool boat.....

    the guy i bought it from said that the motor has 10 to 1 comp. w/ flat top pistons. cam is hyd w/ 464 lift 284 duration. which is good lift cam? am i right about that?

    I was thinking about putting TT snails on it for the more classic look. didnt really like this style OT.

    Anybody want a Lacarra mach 2 wood steering wheel? I really like the look of the older covico wheels
