    Default My new boat

    Dam this is cool to have a tunnel boat!!!! Its a whole new driving experence, I found out the hard way that when you lift in a tunnel boat you have to lift easy. I had a bunch of water in it from putting it in( a dam wake board boat came by and put waves over the back) and then when I lifted the water rushed forward and hooked a sponson and around I went. I cleaned my shorts and took it easy. Yesterday was rough, some how I got water in my gas tanks and it ended my day early. Im changing my oil, drained the gas already, and hope to get out later today again. I also have to cut my saddle for the rideplate, so I can get the nose up a little. with the diverter down, it berries the nose. that wasnt cool eigher. LOL all in all, she is bad ass!!!!!!!!!

    I dont have a speedo in it, and im still playing with it. Its just a .030 over 454 with merlin iron oval heads. my best guess would be 475hp
