    Default Jet tech on the water-share b4 summer

    this has probably been done before, but..... I was just reading Delmorte's starter thread, and changing a starter on the water came up. Got me to thinking, maybe we should share our tricks for saving a weekend from a sure trip home. Nothing is to simple to post up, if it saved you or someone you know, share please. Details please, some of us (mostly me) are deficiant when it comes to this stuff.
    Boating is nothing like cocaine, boating is much more addictive and results in bigger parties!

    Help build your buddies boat and use the same parts you used on yours, that way you have tons of spare parts on the ready...



    You will break/destroy/lose whatever you don't have a spare of.


    I had no idea you could do that!!!lol
