    Lake testing again today.
    All looks good but can always be better.
    I'm running 8% under driven. I'm looking for a 1/2 pitch 2" 36 to run even. The boat picked up a few mph, um, well you know.

    Changed out steering hub,new droop and added place diverter, hooked up stringer control, Changed exhaust from thru tramsom headers to o/t headers. Headers are out at Embee in Cali getting coated should be back this weekend as soon as they are back just need to bolt them up and this years upgrades are complete. New water system (hoses and AN fittings) had to change from water jacketed header to water injected, needed to add pressure "t" and add a dump line (all stainless, very expensive and a pain in the ass). If I had know the cost of going stainless I would have used rubber hose and hose clamps but now that it is done, and my wallet is a lot lighter, I am happy with the outcome and went stainless. Oh and I might go to a 1250 dominator carb but that is still up in the air.

    Getting ready to do all fluids and a new set of plugs. I'm going to add some extra speakers under the hatch, so when I'm on the sand bar, I can lift it and actually hear some music.
