    I'm looking to by my first jet boat specifically a 23' day cruiser with the below deck seating. My preferred choice would be a Sleekcraft.

    Hey guys, I've been a bit absent lately as just crazy busy with life and work. Now that it's winter it's time for some love on the New Cheetah FastCat. The carpet the guy installed a few years back is just junk. It's isn't holding up very well, and it's just plain HOT!! The cheap stuff I got...

After drooling over some ski boats, I noticed how nicce the billet controls were, but I am not finding a whole lot in the way of aftermarket options. Here is what I fond so far...

  10. Distributor assembly options for Merc 6.2?

    GN7 On the Dyno
    Looks like I need a new distributor assembly and they want around 700 for a Mercury one. That would keep me off the water for a while. It seems like there has to be an aftermarket "marine" one or I am sure there are a slew of aftermarket small block Chevy options? I just don't know how to find...

  14. [Question] Repower options?

    Trying to sell my Rodgers possibly but I had a thought. If I could repower to a 250 or 300 Optimax or Verado for a resonable price I would probably keep it. Basically want to find out what options I have and cost. Maybe my old Rodgers could become a project. Any info would help, Thanks BP
