    Work is a good thing, I wouldn't complain. I wish I could get enough time to get mine apart enough to start on the projects. But, retirement and summer are both approaching so there will be time to work on them. I hope.
    So many projects, so little time

    No complaints, it's been so long since the times were good..... A kid still has to play!


    Troy, Donny..... More refinments to the jetdrive, since going to low profile jet intake, hardware clearance has been challenged. Cleaning up the underwater gear, PD mini drrop, and PD race nozzle.

    ChevyJ,
    Every Thanksgiving I help put on a ride from Los Angeles to vegas, an offroad Dualsport ride. Last Thanksgiving I was taking a parade lap around the Orleans Casino on a bike we gave away to one lucky rider. A car ran a stop sign and I t-boned him. Broke L-1 vertbrae and shattered the wrist. This message board and river dave's have been keeping me going since then.
    I finally got the boat home this weekend and couldn't really do anything but I brought it over to Shelby's Stereo install shop in Long beach today. They're gonna finishh the stereo upgrade for me. My goal is on the water April 5th in Laughlin and Havasu!
    I'm lucky to be alive and prognosis is a full recovery!

    F--k me, I was just jerking your chain!!! Great news on the 100% recovery!! The DB that ran the stop sign should have had their asses kicked for that one.

    APOLLO, the only thing I really need is a stearing cable, throtle cable, and key switch, and I will be boating!!!!

    Hey Chuck, do you have a place diverter and handle layen around up there you may want to loose?

    J-Bonz The boats lookin Stellar weird winter eh? Com'mon spring....

    Chevyjet, I have an American Turbine trim for sale in the spam section, does the same job as the Place diverter, but gives more turn angle on the nozzle, up/down is the same. Also has FTN nozzle inserts. will accept manual or hyd trim.

    Does it come with installation help? I need to put a diverter on the cruiser, but the one I have is black and goes with my black spare pump. I'll also have to figure out how all the jet stuff works. But the cruiser is fun on the river, so no jet bashing comments from me. (at least not for now)
    So many projects, so little time
