    Someone had to say it:

    "This thread is useless without pictures".
    "As democracy is perfected, the office of president represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron."
    H.L. Mencken

    OBAMA: Some people deserve this.
    The rest of us are being dragged along kicking and screaming.

One Customer turned me on to a product called Shark Skin... a Resin based Polish, which he say's is good for over 1 year on polished a polished pump... and actually protects the polished product... Yaaa

    If the units are completely polished, does that mean there is no surface treatment to the aluminum, such as hard anodizing? If so how well does it hold up over time, especially when used in brackish water conditions? Does the inside have some sort of anti-fouling type coating?

    i have used shark skin in the past and it is way better than zoops but there is no cure for polishing unfortunately. the sharkskin does fog a little too. the rep was extremely nice though. it may hold up fairly well inside the boat but not extremely impressive outside in the water. good job on the new suction. would some sort of hard anodizing be possible on cast?

    Pops , the shiny stuff is nice and all but not sure if you're saying that your casting has some beef in it ? Are you casting with a more ductile alloy than the Berkeley's ?

    Thanks Brian, I have never yet Got one picture to go thru... Computer Skill Lacking!

    Will Try to answer some here:

    Casting is a super beefed, Side Walls, Tripple Braced Bearing Cap which blends into a Flat 5" location for set back with no configuration change to Transom Plate Configuration (Same Plate Cut fits within the 5 Inch location of the Flat at mounting), No Thin Wall at Hand Hole Cover as it was Designed for Pop Off and is Pre Bored for Pop Off Valve... Side Walls on Hand Hole are much thicker (A weak Point and cause of Suction Breakage upon Implosion with a Load, Un-Load, Re-Load Condition) This is Further Braced by 2 Large Arched Water Outlets which Run the full length of the Suction, Both Outlets are Gunned Drilled to Provide (2) outlets...The Second Water Outlet for those that need a second (additional) water outlet within the Craft...Both sides of the suction are Machined to allow additional water for outlets Blow By behind the Impeller. This cast structure makes the Suction about as strong as can be Mfg...Bearing Cap is Pre-Drilled (8 Hole) for Ratchet Mount without Mod... In the Case of the Non Pop Off application, Hand Hole Cover is Big Enough to get a full size hand in for clean out... It also has a Billett Top Plate (for added Back Up on any Back Pressure incurred Enternal in the Pump) The Lock Down Nut's are Billett Machind Oversize to provide the largest surface coverage Possable... Larger Stainless Steel Washers are also provided to further extend this surface coverage on Lock and Seal. Castings Must be Clean as a Very High rate get's Polished, and you cannot fake the casting quality in Polish... Its a Gateing Challange for pouring.

    The Castings today are 356 Heat Treated to T6 Condition. We did anodize Hard Anodize the suction at one time, However that condition causes a adhesion problem on Powder... None of the suction I see or am aware of are anodized to day... Paint or Powder Coat and in the older Berkeley it was a Oxide primer used. 356 Alloy is a Silicon Alloy... Anodize with a silicon causes a hard blush and milk-ie look to ocure, thats why you see no Polished/Anodized (Clear) Parts, Also you get a splotching look to the same.
    If you go Back to our Original Alloy Tensinloy It is a Pure level alloy... Higher Tensile, also a tougher strength by 8,000 to 12,000 PSI over 356 T6... It can be polished with a Clear Anodize as no Silicon is in the Alloy.
    It has a Gas out major problem much like Mag Bronze as both have a
    Magnesium content with other add ins to obtain its strength. It was a war to get a handle and a lot of people were BShitted on the alloy... 356 is cheaper and no one bitched on everyone else's so why fight it... We changed after 5 Years and went to the same 356. We fight this BS war on Mag Bronze vs S/Steel yet it has proven over 12 years to withstand every bit the same as S/Steel or better... The Published Charts and write up's by the metallurgist
    show the alloy comming in at 110,000 PSI and a Memory of 1/2 % better then S.Steel.. So only those that believe know... Its still close to 1/2 cheaper B/Printed and shipped. (Had to get that in)

    I am sorry to hear Shark Skin is not standing up with in water parts... I have several who say it is lasting on there units... Lake Elsinore would tell you in 1 Run That shit water, it will destroy a polished part just seeing its going in... Any that want to see the suctions are welcome to go to aggressorjets.com and look under Drives they are shown... Will try to post a Raw one as soon as they come in...
