    Default New Project, Apparently I am insane

    So, after a year of searching to replace my 21' Bisemeyer Cruiser,(RIP), I found something I fell in love with. My bank account did NOT however, this sombitch is gonna cost some green, but I think worth it in the end!

    Rather crappy cell phone pics, I'll get better ones once it's delivered.

    Ray-

    You were insane before this latest project! Has that boat ever been rigged? It looks like it'll be a fun ride when you're done with it. Harold Bruce @ R&D Marine has lots of dual jet knowledge, gonna have it ready for Big River?

    Not exactly sure what I'm in for totally on this deal Skip! But that's the plan, to make the Fathers Day No Skirts deal with it! I got Dave in the loop with the engines, he's pumped up about it, pumps are in good hands, I think it'll be switched from the JetOVators to hydraulic PD units, etc, etc.

    Just gotta totally build an interior for it! Floors and all, which doesn't scare me, got an upholsterer on standby. Anyone got any good pics of an original Sleek Ambassador interior?

    May need to contact Mr Bruce on this...... One thing that has stymied me a bit is how to run twin steering, throttle and F/R cables...... Answers should be with the boat, it was originally rigged this way.

    True Jimmy, But the Moo and Pickle are both ready to go now, again, finally, and the Sub is going to be finished up by my brother, so I needed something to keep me busy!

    Truly was looking just for a mini day, but this was just WAY too cool a deal. I'll leave the finances out of it, but a smoking deal. Maybe I can actually have some fun tormenting the wake barges out there this summer! I would imagine twin roostertails will accomodate me some pretty wide berth at Sag.........
