What's the "grease gun" looking thing on the right side (deck mounted) of the hydro??

How would one of those fare vs GS, PS, or K?

Just curious
In the lines of vintage, the greasegun looking device is a pump to put air in the fuel tank to push the fuel to the carbuerator just like the old sprint cars used to run, it is there for looks and is not functioning!
I would say this boat would easily run 105 down the straightaway getting to the first turn in front of most of those ski type boats but then would have to lift too much to make it around the turn so there really is no comparison!
Bob Leach (Mikes dad) let me take it for a spin on Monday, needless to say I came in with a big smile on my face as it was taching 7500 rpm with some pedal left! I hope someone got a picture of it up on plane and running they were telling me the roostertail was awesome! We had to cut our test session short as a oil leak developed.
Be sure to check it out at Long Beach this weekend during the flag ceremonys, it is really a beautiful boat.
