Was that the timi that a tree fell on and tore out the dash/steering area?

Yes, this is the ďtreeĒ boat.. I was looking at it the last time it came up for sale but the timing wasnít right.. this time I couldnít pass it up.  It looks a lot better up front. The transom and floor was done before the tree incident and it still looks ok.  Just the tree damage, the piece fits back in fairly easy. Most all the parts are there, except for windshield, windshield post, console and right transom trim. But I think I know someone that has some...  :)  canít decide if its emerald green or blue?  It looks like fading to emerald but blue under the vent on the side..     I post more when I get into it deeper.

That blue seems to fade to green, maybe yellowing of the clear?   Group seems to be migrating to Timi's and 23's.    I doubt mine will be ready for water by August, but hopefully next year.   Good luck with your new project!


BTW, I got the decal, much larger in person than it looked in the pictures.

Well... I got into it.... DONíT use green treated plywood to rebuild these boats!! The fiberglass doesnít stick..  floor and transom were junk.. oh well, thatís why we call it a labor of love..

I was looking through all the parts that came with the timi and most are there, but the 2 sets of exhaust logs that came with have two different outlets.. the silver ones have what looks like a baffling on them and the black ones donít. My question is which ones are better and could I use either ones?   Although the silver ones were not drained the last time they were on a motor and are cracked and probably no good... I will probably use the black ones but Iíd like to know if either style is better..

Never seen silver logs before, just painted iron ones?  I guess I always thought the Timi's used center rise manifolds, not the log type.  Maybe a model year difference.  The internal baffle extends the length of dry exhaust before dumping the wastewater.  Given the difference in length, I'd doubt you would notice a difference in performance.  Might be a tad louder?    If you were going FI, I'd use the silver to keep the O2 sensor dry.

The black ones were what was on my Intimidator when i got it.  I think the difference is just where the water meets the exhaust. Further back would be better considering the amount of slope the log style has in these boats.
