Hey Gregg, what model is that Jim and Rachel have?  (Looks very similar to my V178!)  I like the bow cover, gives me an idea!?!?!?  Nice boat too, BTW.

Well, sorry I didn't make it.  My brakes gave out in the truck this morning.  On the way to the parts store, I backed into the drivers door of my wifes car...

I figured I sould just give up there and call it a day.  Finished the brake work about 8pm.  That's the way it goes.  Sure was a nice day though.

Ever get her running right Jim?

Steve's 20P Laser II was too much prop - Put David's 19P and every thing was good.
I would like to try a small dia. 21P. I can't get rid of the hesitation from 1800 - 2200 RMPs

Jim,
Doesnt you motor like your 21 that you borrowed me? Have you sold that yet?
Per David, I think I need to try some more before I buy I guess.
Great pics btw. Look at all that sandy beach!

Nice pictures Gregg!

Too bad you didn't make it but you were probably right about stoping the bad luck there. I may be able to help with the door on her car. might be able to find a used replacement. www.car-part.com

Looks like you at least got her to plane out Jim!

  Sorry, Tonka Jim, I'm kinda SLOW sometimes!  Looks like y'all had a ball.  Wish I were closer, I'm trying to swing a trip up to the big meet in 2011!

Looks like a good time. Great pics! Ya I'll say Jim was really haulin' the mail! That thing rides nice. Some respectable #s too. Sounds like a purty good prop match to me. Dunno if a smaller, taller wheel will buy you anything. But what the heck it's worth a try?

I doubt if any propeller will fix your hesitation problem. Could be wrong but that sounds like a fuel delivery issue. Mebbe go up a jet size?

Nice to see you guys out havin' fun. WooHoo!

Jim I had a new 2S carbed snowmobile years back that hesitated like a mother in the mid-range. I went down(leaner) 2 jet sizes. Polaris was known for jetting them fat so they made it through the warranty period. Anyways that completley ended the hesitation and it screamed after that. Just a thought.
