    Default Going boating

    I just put the pump back in and want to take it out one more time befor winter hits. Anyone want to go for a ride on sun, 11/8. If you do Ill be at the cabbin on the fox in st charles. Flag me down and Ill take you for a ride. I just put $900 into the pump and I want to see what it did. Tom Marro did the bowl and put a new berring in it and cleaned it up a little, ss impeller, redid the stuffer, and all new seals. Now I need a bigger motor!!!! lol

    It was a great day until the loader filled up with leaves. I could deal with the leaky first time out leaks, that was what the bildge is for right! lol If a jetboat doesnt leak, its not a jet. lol I need a bigger motor now. I tried to take off with the place diverter up, and it just hung the nose outand took for ever to come down. NEED MORE POWER!!!!! We will see what santa brings for christmas. Mabe a little blue bottle tucked under the deck, and a new 496ci bbc.

    Looked like it was a great day to be on the water, 70 and lots of sunshine.

    Good to hear all went well,

    The place diverter is nice to have, some jackoff got pissed off when I went buy his connue and I jumped on it and made the wake smaller for him. The next time I passed him I put the place diverter all the way up and went slow throwing a huge wake. Jack ass.

    let the p.i.a. neighbors got to church, fired up the boat, got some temp in it, fogged it and pulled the plugs. Will finish it up next weekend, back off the rockers, and then tear the boat apart.
