Sorry, thought I was putting this in readers rides. I'll try again.
Graphics look great, who did them? Also where was the picture taken?
looks great! Diggin the graphics too.
Glad you like the graphics. I bought the boat a few years ago on S&F and the graphics were already on. The boat was totally misrepresented. So, I have been working out all the problems over the last few years. I am glad to say that that I'm just about done with it. As a matter of fact I took the boat up to John Marles (US1) so he could run the motor this past Sunday. I had him go through the entire motor and do his magic to it. He is a great guy to work with. Once I hung the motor back on the boat he wanted to be the first guy to start it to make sure everything was perfect on it. So, when I was up there he ran the motor for about an hour and a half constently checking all the vitals. Thankfully, eveything was perfect. I'll be taking it out tomorrow and this weekend to complete the break in procedure. It's been a long project. I've literally replaced everything on the boat from gauges, shifter, lower unit, stereo system, jack plate, handles, fuel intel, heads, crank, PCU, Injectors, Simon Alt kit, Installed a Bimini Top, repainted the cowl, completely redid trailer and plenty I have forgotten. It's been a real learning experience that don't regret. I really enjoy the boat and I'm looking forward (hopefully) to a hastle free season. The picture was taken on the Colorado River near Yuma in a place called Martinez. My goal is to figure out the set up so I can get up closer to the 120 MPH mark. I shoud have plenty of power now with the new motor. I sometimes just wonder who's telling the truth about there top speed. Last season I thought my motor was running real good and could only get 107 out of it with a real 30 ET. Seems way off from what others are getting. Time will tell. First I'll need to break the motor in. I guess it's more about set up then motor. Unfortunately there is nobody out this way with an STV. So, I've been doing everything by trial and error. Wish I could run into a buch of people out on the water with them so they could give me some pointers on set up. I hear there are a few out at Lake Havasu. That's only about two hours past where I usually go. I may have to go out there to see some others this season. Thanks again for the complements.
