  1. V-Drives
    Got another newbie question for you guys. Noticed that my water pickups stick down about 1 1/16" or so out the bottom. Seems this one is a bit excessive as the boat is running a cam drive water pump. Does this look too deep to you? Is the 45 degree slash cut the best setup? Could I get away with...
  2. User "How To" Section
    Hey everybody With the water level being soooooo low at lake Powell, I decided it was time to install a depth finder in my Ultra 23. So I purchased a Faria gauge with a in-hull transducer. I have read the instructions and they want it mounted to the hull just in front of the engine, but my fuel...
  3. PB Open Water
    Thinking about installing a depth gauge in my DCB 24 extreme. Then I started reading the online instructions and they recommend that the sending unit be mounted in non aerated water. Not sure of I can find a good spot on the inside of my hull. Has anybody had luck with a depth gauge on a step...
  4. GN7 On the Dyno
    Callies Compstar BBC 4.25 crank 4340 that has had the rods turned .010 under. Does it need to be renitrided? What is the usual depth of hardness on a factory new crank? I notice a lot of builds with Clevite "H" series bearings for large radius journals. Any other's preferable or equal/ better...
  5. Jet Boats
    Have a 19 foot Daytona jet. Looking for someone who has set one of these boats up. I have a Berkeley intake with a back cut shoe. Want to know if shoe height should be keel or a hair below? Also on my intake on the front it is slightly rounded. Intake looks like it is out of a v hull. My boat is...

  8. Jet Boats
    Posted in the 21 thread but no response. When measuring shoe and loader depth do I run my level along the lowest point of the boat( lowest point of my center pod. Basically I'm running a 5ft straight edge along the center pod and when it meats the shoe I'm dead on. Just trying to make sure...
  9. PB Open Water
    All I am looking for a depth gauge that will complement the Autometer Pro Comp Marine gauges that are in my boat now. (Picture is enclosed). On my lake, I need a depth gauge especially when coming into the area in front of my property as the lake level fluctuates a bit. On the other boat, I...
  10. PB Open Water
    I think this is the one I have - the ads says it will read up to 70 mph. I'm lucky if it reads at 20 mph. Anyone else have this unit? If so, what kind of speeds are able to get readings?
  11. V-Drives
    I bought a new gauge and transducer almost a year ago from a reputable distributor and it never has worked right so after hours of fu**ing around with it I'm sending it back. With a Vdrive there's really no place to mount the transducer off the transom so through hull is the only option. I...
