    Great job Chaz! Can't believe you got all that done already. You're making me look like an old slow puss (which I am but not need to point it out).

    Congrats and enjoy.....

    Thanks, it was kind of fun today at the lake. We all know a bad day at the lake is better than a good day at the office. I was very happy with my work to the bottom of the boat, it really seemed to smooth out the ride. I just need to figure out how to make the engine run correctly again. I lost 1000 RPM's and a lot of speed with a rebuilt pump and an altitude of 5100ft(ran in San Diego before) Everyone I talked to here said it would not run well at this altitude but I did not expect popping(like a flag blowing in high wind) and some backfiring. Plus the plugs a very brown now. I also noticed that it got MUCH worse when I ran in mild chop. Any ideas or advice would be great.

    Didn't blow up real good, but I got a shot of a Bald Eagle catching a trout

    My level of happiness went from about a 3 to maybe 9.5 when I finally was able to step on the gas and feel the 500 HP push me back in the seat

    Now I can only imagine having enough speed to win "river races" will push that number any higher

    That is Anteploe Lake, Plumas county I think. Has a nasty grade to get to it but the road is paved and the lake was almost empty for it's busiest weekend

    I was told the water cop there doesn't like OT exhaust but he never showed and I saw 2 other jet boats with OT.

    From the 3 lakes I tried this weekend, this was my favorite(Eagle, Almanor, and Antelope) it's not very big, but with no other traffic it is calm water and has many "private" sandy beach areas to hang out. There is campground at one end also, but I have not checked it out.
