    Default New owner and a newbie

    Sup guys, first off,not sure if this is the right place to post this but I'm a newbie with boats. Or at least owning them. I just got me another hull, my 80' charger was too much to get it ready so i got me another boat. Not too sure on what model exactly it is, but it's a cheetuh I belive. but it's a tunnul hull. Tried searching for it but couldn't find nothing close to it other than pickleforks. What do yall think. And again sorry if I'm posting this in the wrong area

    I didn't know Cheetah made a tunnel. Either way it looks like a cool hull, tunnel with a split bowl. What kind of power are you putting in it?

    I'm putting my 454 off my charger boat. And it says cheetuh tunnul on it. But not sure. My cousin said maybe a cheetuh Gullwing. Those look more like it. I'm from bakersfield ca. Thinking bout testing here locally, ming lake. And then making a trip to either bass lake or lake Mojave

    Cool deal! Im in Palmdale. Took mine for the first time to Pyramid. That was pretty nice. Looking around I saw that you guys have a couple of local lakes near you. Thats cool. Good luck with it. Looks fun!

    I really liked it. But what do I know? Ive really only been on a couple of jet boats at the river. We went two saturdays ago and it seemed pretty light. There was a bass tournament going on and we got there pretty late. About noon. They have a few beaches that you can only get to with a boat. And some of them have bathrooms. We had a great time and it was only about an hour drive from my driveway to the ramp. Not very far for you but you do have to climb that hill.

    Cool. One of my friends saw my boat and invited me to join them at lake Mojave. Its out by laughlin right? Never been there. They go every year in july. I want to check it out. I just picked this boat up in a trade for a 90 Mustang GT convertible. Its a 68 Weiman. You can see my thread in this section. Enjoy the drama I had for a bit. You'll see! Haha. How are those lakes near you? Lake Ming and such? Thinking about checking out Castaic on Sunday. If you do check out pyramid make sure your boat is bone dry before you go there because of the mussel inspection. Not sure how much you know about it. Just learning myself so I thought id pass that on to you.

    Im so new to boats that I dont even know what baffles are! Haha im guessing thats like mufflers? I dont think I have them. My exhaust runs through tubes straight out of the transom. I didn't have a problem running it there. Maybe im wrong. Anyway keep us updated with pictures. Always like seeing those updates.

    Welcome. Pretty sure that's a Crusader Tunnel. In fact I would put a good amount of $ on that bet. I have one... Great hull and some have made them run real quick with reasonable power. It will sit extremely low in the water by the way. The water line will be over the rub rail in the rear.
