    Rebuilding my 87 advantage. Started with just a new motor build but my dumb ass had to do everything at once.

    OK, I know it's a bit of self promotion but C'mon, they turned out pretty cool ;) .....We tried to do something different by showing all our boats from the past as well as current. We have Men's white & black T's, Men's white Tanks, sizes Small to 2X and Women's gray tanks Sizes Small to...

    Hello all, I have been locked out of the forum for a while because of my email or something , anyways I rebuilt my motor and found the heads needed a total rebuild(valves, springs,guides and so on) I used a different block and a voodoo hyd flat tappet cam- 262, broke the motor in and went to the...

    I don't want to scare any of you guys but I actually got my tub back in the water again. Last Friday my buddy Rob owner/driver on GN 76 and I put the boats in at Pirates Den in Parker and I actually drove my boat under it's own power:hmmm::) Everything went well so I am really looking forward...

  7. PB Open Water
    Today I received word that the National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA) has closed its West Coast offices, effectively washing its hands of the Los Angeles Boat Show. The news is only the latest in a series of events that has, to varying degrees, crippled, upset, and angered members of...
  8. PB Open Water
    ​This past Saturday the sun was out and a beautiful crystal blue sky was overhead the air was brisk and the ride up the river was awesome! It had been several weeks since the boat had been on the water with rainy cold weekends and even longer for me. I had knee surgery during the holidays and...

    Final flow numbers: 2.35 valve, 91.5% throat, 3.56 CSA, 4.60 bore. 2.30 version will be available. Phase 1 ready for digitizing. These are for a customer. Right now they're closer to 370cc but next phase will be reduced radius in corners @ the openings which should bring them closer to about...

    I found this Schiada 22 and decided it seemed to be the optimum boat for the wife and me crazy..So I hope to end up with the 1965 Howard center deck and this.. It's been sitting and is dirty but the overall build and condition is great. So pull motor and make sure it's good and redo...

    It took me a year, but my new road dolly trailer is finally done... TNT powder coating in Plasserville, and a lot of help from preacher bill, sorry the pics are all going in different directions, I can't figure out how to change them. But I can't wait to get the boat on it!
  13. GN7 On the Dyno
    Sadly my boat is still sitting without the engine in it that Barry helped me get put together quite some time ago, but I have been busy with tons of other crap. One of those things is my 64 Ford F100 shop truck I have been working on for a while that has finally now come to life again. (I drove...
  14. Jet Boats
    After almost 3 years, 2 blown motors, a ton of interior work, and a hell of alot of headache, I finally decided to cut my loses and downgrade for reliability. As some of you know I have been parting out the motor and the boat which has finally gotten me enough money to pick up the new...
  15. Delta Lunch Bunch ( dlb )
    I guess at some point it had to happen. Even whackers need a push rope on occasion. Got to say Boat US tow insurance is worth the $60/year. We were at Tower Park and towed all the way back to Whiskey Slough... I asked what the bill would have been and he said $1200. (No typo) Compressor...

    Finally ID'd hull number 3!! '65 Hallett Woodie Couple of weeks ago I bought a third V-drive (also have the blue '61 Spico and the green early 60's Gausti) down in Albany Oregon. Seller had the title for the trailer, but no title for the boat. Funny thing is the last registered owner lives...
