  1. Paint and Fiberglass Repair
    I have a pretty good idea what I need to do to make the repairs to the bottom, but wanted to throw it out on the boards for advise. The guy I bought the boat from started grinding and started the repair on the crack with marine poly resin. Should I continue with the poly resin or epoxy? Cut out...

  3. Outboards
    I sure hope I am not the first nucklehead to do this. I was in a hurry and by myself and forgot to shut of my motor after trailering my pontoon. It is a 07 75hp efi 4strk. It probably ran for 5-7 minutes at an idle before I found out. Obviously I need an impeller kit. Is there anything else that...

    I know this topic has been discussed and the damage caused by the ethanol in gas is well documented. While gassing the boat I had a conversation with a guy who just spent 3K repairing his boat from ethanol damage. We all put that preservative in our tanks for the off season but his mechanic told...
  6. Jet Boats
    Hello. I have heard 2 theories on going from full thrust forwards to full reverse. some people say its fine and the thing that makes jetboats the safest watercraft. Other say that this will wreck the engine and jet very quickly and never to do it unleaded an emergency. Any thoughts from...
  7. GN7 On the Dyno
    Hurt my engine over Memorial weekend and as sad as it sounds, I'm just getting to looking at it now... Normally run Av gas in my 454 Banks TT @ 9#'s boost, but got lazy & put 91 pump into it and dumped a couple of bottles of octane boost in for good measure... Ran it gentle most of the weekend...
  8. Jet Boats
    Hello all, So I just put my new engine in and took the boat out for the first time the other day, and when I brought it back I was checking out the jet and discovered the pictured damage. The engine is making 528hp (dyno) and the impeller was a new aluminum Berk B, spinning 5600rpm in an E...
  9. Outdrives
    Took the son and his buddy tubing a few days ago behind our Volvo v-6 deck boat (sorry not too fancy or fast). Impeller gave up and temp pinned gage REAL quick. Headed home asap, maybe 1/4 mile on water and a minute and 1/2...but it got hot. Smoke came off all the rubber coupler/connections on...

    What would cause damage to the wear ring area of the impeller looking like it had the grooves machined on a lathe. The wear ring is scuffed, but not damaged. Secondly, I have 3 Impellers and not one of them measures the same. (All are "A" for a 12JC Berkeley. 1. SS impeller (Detailed) 2...
  11. PB Open Water
    Well everyone our port has been pretty wiped off the map in places. There were a a lot of destored boats and a few sunk right in the harbor. One man lost his life during the event here in Brookings. The air had a pungent smell of diesel. I uploaded a video and it will be done in about 15...
