    Default **71 SleekCraft Pics**

    Hey guys awhile back some of you were requesting pics of my boat with the new bimini top up, here is is at Blythe this last weekend. It was supposed to be 36" tall but came the next size taller 48" Ii believe so we had it cut down some. Couldn't return for the original proper size because of the cash deal we got, so we decided to cut out 9" from this one, this is what we were left with guys

    Cool, thanks. I can only imagine the relief from the sun.

    Might you have a pic with it put away in the boot. Have you tried climbing in with it down in deep water?
    I only ask because it's tough for some to get back in the boat in deep water. I always make sure I can still climb in at the nose, when I can't, I always say I'll get a gym membership, but until then....

    Don't have a pic with it in the boot, I will get one tho, The bimini sits on top of the engine cover when not in use. But when we enter the boat we use the rear skid plate to enter easy, never tried getting in from the front yet since that rear step is so convenient, deep water or not. Never entered the boat yet when the bimini was down, I always put it up first thing after arrival.

    can you post a few interior shots of the engine compartment? I got a rebel that I am going to be completely reworking the interior on and was playing with the idea of closing up the engine bay

    Thanks those are great! Im thinking of doing cross breed engine bay. I want to run headers like on this listing. I bought some a while back http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...m=250862905243

    however its my understanding that those headers cannot be enclosed and have to have air flowing around them.

    here is an old picture of my boat so far, cant wait to redo the interior and paint. Im gonna use a seat design like yours.

    The link isnt opening up too see the headers you got but you could always build a straight back seat facing forward and leave then engine hatch off for cooling. I was wanting open headers too but after our first river trip out at blythe last weekend it would be too loud for me and the wifey, I don't mind the loudness but she bitches about the dog and her. Its loud enough with the engine cover and carb facing rearward already, it helped a lot turning the carb around, we dont hear the air sucking sound too much thats soo dam loud. interior is next on our to-do list. we have a local guy here in Moreno Valley that will re-do it all for $500ish. Weve been getn all the leaks and minor twerks fixed, but as of Bylthe last weekend no more water in the oil and boat ran like a champ, Only 50mph max which feels slow as shit, I wish It was faster, but in time!

    Yeah those are water injected not water jacketed. You need jacketed headers for an enclosed engine compartment. That is a great price for those if that is new.

    Yeah thats what I thought too. What about if I came up with a way to have the sides of the motor exposed while having the top appear to be enclosed. Mostly we are looking at closing it up for insurance reasons. Truth be told Id rather leave the engine bay wide open for all to admire... or rather laugh at lol

    Maybe. Heat rises though. I don't think if I would chance it and I bet the insurance company would have the same opinion. If you want an engine cover, run logs or jacketed headers.

    Budda, That boat looks great.

    agreed. the only way Ill run these is if I can get them to stick out wide from underneath the cover and still look good. Odds are good that Ill just be running this badboy coverless.
