    So we bought a new place and the wife has agreed to let me add on to the existing shop. In the end I'll have about 80 X 45 of floor space with an upstairs office. I want to add a 30 X 15 paint booth and have a tentative OK for that as well. But I don't want to spend 90K for a commercial...

    Hi everyone; I've been stalking the forum for a while now while working on what I guess I would call a "mini" jet boat build (nope, not another NZ river mini.... think mini Southwind TD or Placecraft... :D), and I'd like to ask for some help with a final detail on the design before I start the...

    Excitement Building Last weekend was pretty exciting watching the P1 boats racing in Jacksonville, Florida on the St Johns River. The sun was shining, a breeze was blowing, the water was little choppy, and the boats were bumping each other like you would see in Nascar. Well this is kind of...

    :notsure: Recently a lot of, lets say, experienced gentlemen like myself have started buying flat bottoms to do the five o'clock beer cruises on the river. I literally drove into one in a cul-de-sac, lost, in LA a couple years ago and bought it for $200.00, nice trailer, new tires, all the gear...

    I have a 74 spectra 20 v-drive with a 454, velvet drive and champion gear box. The boat won't get out of its own way at sea level and when I run it at lake arrowhead, 5200 ft elevation, it's like driving a big rig, no power at all. I am looking to freshen up the engine and add some power to it...

    I have made a decision to do some technical videos and explain some of the ways we do things. The start of this is today. One question we get all the time is how do I measure for pushrods.
