    I just got a 91 Advantage open bow 20.5. With it sitting on the trailer, the steering wheel can be turned from stop to stop with my little finger. Put it in the water and it like wrestling a bear. The pump is an American Turbine ATJ with trim. I ask because my last boat (78 Southwind) would...

    I bought this 1976 Spectra 20 from a guy up in Reno NV last year. In my excitement of finally buying a nice boat I hauled ass back to Vegas. My girlfriend and I took it to the river for the first run and it ran flawless. We took it out for a few more short trips out on Lake Mead, and then...

I think the motormakes around 600 to 630 HP. Coming in to the dock, I ran it 4k for a few minsand went to around...

    What gives? Can cruise around all day with no issue but I romp down on it a few seconds and then there's a ton of water in the floor. It's not the headers... I turned the water off to verify. Any clue?

    I was wondering if it is OK to use Aluminum line for hardlines rather than stainless? In particular for water lines. I want to do a few of our boats in all hardline, but I'd like to practice on the non-showy boats using cheaper and easier materials. The aluminum line is "not recommended for...

    I'm attempting to restore this hull, I don't know what kind of paint was used!! Should I sand all of it off? The spots that are left are low(obviously) can they stay before I primer?

  18. PB Open Water
    Gotta say, I have always liked the Dolphins more or less. BUT, what the hell are they doing? This head coach is about as wishy washy as they come it seems. They cut some good, young talent. 2 guys that got waived to the practice squad were snatched up by the Jets in a matter of minutes. Hogan...
