    Welcome to the new boat club Rob Glad that some one else has a few problems too... All that I can say is just keep after em and you will get it running right in no time at all... (maybe)

    I'm a little late to the party on this thread but I was right behind this boat at the bass lake show and for anyone who hasn't had the pleasure of seeing this boat in person it is beautiful. A real work of art. Hope to get to see her run someday. If it runs half as good as it looks I'm sure its a lot of fun.

    It was a pleasure hanging out with you and your lovely wife! By the way, your vintage shovelnose is very cool but a little scary with that Big motor! Rob

    Cool video, Just hang in there and fix those issues one at a time and pretty soon you'll have it all taken care. Not sure how to calibrate your speed to face distortion. How many rpms was it turning? Is that a GoPro camera? If so what so what resolution mode are you using.

    RPM's...right at 5000. GoPro yes. Mode: I'm also a newbie with this...does 720 make sense to you?

    I'm hanging.....I think the muffler inserts are blocking the E-vac tubes(ie. causing a positive manifold pressure thus the oil leaks), so out they come. Pull out the prop shaft seal...probable over greased it and blew out the seal, and pull the boat over to Teague Marine and have a "smart person" check my wiring on the GPS speedo.

    Just hoping that one day when I go out...there will be no issues. (probably never happen huh Steve....)

    Don't get discouraged Rob. It will happen and then what will you do? At least you never have a boring boat ride eh? Also, I'm sort of in the same boat. Looks like I found out one of my carb problems and have the right parts for it now. Just a few little adjustments and I should be in good shape. Still waiting on some cavitation plate parts also. It is never ending so keep your chin up, it does get easier...

    John, thats a totally different boat with no connection to the "GN" Howard. That is actually a 19/20ft Schiada.

    The 19 ft Schiada is actually 18'10" in measured length. The mold was sold to Howard and became the 19ft Howard. The Schiada's had 4 stringers and the Howards have 2 stringers. These seemed to be used more for ski racing than GN racing. As Bob said the 20' is a different boat. The 19' mold was listed for sale on Performance Boats a couple of weeks ago....Skip

    So my question is....is it just me(a newbie) or does everyone else have issues "almost everytime" you take your boat out? Took her out Sunday AND......oil leaks are back(after welding in new E-vacs), speedo still not working(antenna out from under the dash), and a New "In-boat shower" from the prop shaft seal......

    Here's a short(2 min) video.... it's slow to load.(I'm looking down at the water spray...)
    Question: At what speed does "face pucker" occur?(a new speed indicator)
    Lake Test #7 - YouTube


    BUT............I still love my boat
