....And it was mine!
First off thanks to everyone for going on and on about thier Gullwings, and how awsome of a ride they are!
Because of all of you on these forums I knew my next boat had to be a Gullwing if I wanted another performance boat.
I bought this boat 2 weeks ago. (Never even rode in one of these before) Drove out to Oklahoma (20hrs there) picked it up and drove back (24hrs with 4hrs sleep). I had enough time to back it into my driveway, hop into my work truck and head into work Saturday night. I know, crazy! Never doing that again!
Today: I went out to lake Piru, one of our local lakes which is known to be blown out. While driving I looked down apon the lake. F--in white caps I could see, but right next to the dam was a glassy spot. I thought what the hell its 92* and I really wanted to drive this thing (still cant believe I waited 2 weeks for this). It took very little effort to get this boat up on plane, it rode on top of the choppy water so smooth. The ride is nothing compared to any of my past V hull boats. The ride quality is there so now I just have to work on EVERYTHING else! The rigging, motor, pump...ect...pretty much everything.
The boat: 1987 TX 19 Condor. 2000 Gen.5 454, w/ Comp Cams 292dur., .550 lift (int. & exh.) Holley 850cfm. MSD ignition.
Dominator MB12S Pump with shoe & ride plate.
Thats pretty much all I know right now. From the performance today I can tell the motor and pump need some serious freshing up but hey, its a start!
