You guys better hope for choppy water............................:)

Wabble shaft coatings? I always thought they were best coated with Nikasil.

I understand that on Friday evening, out on the lake, we are having a "snipe hunt."

You would not believe how many people we have signed up for that.

I Googled 'nitrous systems' and found a supplier on Craigslist.

Been searching the internet and found algorithms for setting injection devices. Have been experimenting but fail to see how this will speed up the boat and now can't find the motor manual or remember where the boat is parked.

Thanks for the tip about those flush rivets Ray and Mark, they worked great on the bottom. The boat GPS'd at XXMPH! Oh, and that MSD ignition made all the difference in the world!





I hope you didn't forget to Moly coat the wabble shaft :hmm:
