    Almost went and got mine today, did bookwork for 3 hrs. today, took me that long to figure out who I wasn't going to pay this month !!!! The tan santa showed up with a nice polished tunnel ram with 2 600's and a doolie scoop for my spare motor, I still have to deciede on a cam, I have a used roller, and a hydraulic mild comp cam, still need a set of roller rockers a pan and a timing chain cover, the motor is a .060 12 to 1 open chamber 396. Trying to get a price from HES's buddie out on Knight rd. If the guy is reasonable and will come through in a couple of weeks, I might just gut the boat and have the floors done. If it is going to be a go, I will just bring it into the shop and put 8 people on it, 4 drinking and 4 working in 10 minute shifts on a Sat. morn. Should be able to completely disassemble it in about 3 hrs. Those floors are bugging me !!!!

    Thats great and all, but its only feb.7 and my lake has about 4" of water on it

    Im for spring but not in early feb. My lake was in very bad shape tho, the wind got it so this thaw should fix it up. I guess I can deal with it

    I bought my boat in Georgia with a worn out 460 Ford motor in it, and when I checked it out, the plywood floors looked pristine and dry. So I redid the whole boat inside and out, flow coated the floors and when I put the blower motor in it and hammered it in rough water the floors delaminated back by the tanks. The stringers still look good and I could run it for a long time if I took it easy and put about a 500 hp motor in it, but then all the guys with YELLOW boats would suck me up and spit me out, I don't know if I could take it !!!!!! In order to repair the flooring, you have to completely disassemble the whole boat. Then when it comes back you have to drill all new holes in the stringers, I will probley replace them, everytime you tear into something like that it is ALWAYS worse than you think. I am up for the reassembly, but don't want to do the woodwork or glassing, would rather have it professionally done................. The jury's still out, I just put a spare smaller motor together. I will be running no matter what this summer. I don't want to hammer it anymore with my blower motor and tear up the boat..........
    I DEFINATELY don't want to get my azz handed to me by anything YELLOW either LOL

    I went ice racing today on the bay. I should have had the boat instead of the car the water was 6"+ inches deep in most of the spots it was crazy.






    We had about 40 cars and trucks running.

    Do what you want you already know what is gonna happen

    If you want someone to do the floor in your boat a friend of mine is EXCELLENT at glass work and stuff like that and does not cost alot to do it. Does not live to far away either.

    yeah it is over by bay city

    Vehicles are typically divided into FWD, RWD, and AWD classes above and below 2.5 litres. There's also a studded class. Non-lifted trucks and SUVs are welcome, but all vehicles must pass a full tech inspection, and all passengers must have approved helmets.

    that is more or less the classes i was in AWD stock with my evo (the red car)
