I think they are using unobtainium in them Corey.

I went on the Ford website today and built a truck to the same specs and options as my current F250. Total price? $58,000! sSc_eek

I think he was talking about upgraded air bags... or flotation devices... ;)

I didn't miss that part. The walls of the coffin while thin are more than enough to hold the tank in place.

Oh I agree on the dissimilar metals issue. Use aluminum straps. I insulated mine with thick clear vinyl.

You want as little touching the tank as posible. I'd use the modified Pascoe method of gluing starboard strips to the bottom of the tank. This elevates the tank off the bottom of the coffin to keep it out of any water and allows air circulation. I'd secure the tank with straps. There has been no iss...

It is definitely a nice looking boat and has all the bells and whistles. And he's has a point, what would the sticker price be on a new one today? I personally would have gone with Etec G2s or the Mercury 3.0L 150 four strokes for the repower though. I think the Suzuki's are either loved or hated wi...

Thermostats are often overlooked by new owners. That is why I tell anyone that gets a new to them used motor, service EVERYTHING. That includes, fuel filters, spark plugs, water pump, lower unit oil, thermostats, and pop off valves to name a few. Rebuilding the carbs is a good idea too unless you kn...

I know of several members that have had good luck with the OMC style SEI lower units. I know they have a great warranty. They also have put a huge dent in the used lower unit market. (why buy used when you can get new with a warranty. I know they have a strict break in procedure. I think if you foll...

OK this test by boattest.com puts it all to rest. Can't deny this was a fair test and no matter what they tried, including changing props and engine location the Yammie is simply outclassed by a lower HP two stroke motor. Single 150HP (ok 160) planing a 25' boat and pushing it to 30MPH? WOW [BBvideo...

I'm not sure of the bulkhead configuration of that hull, but your right there should be drain holes in them to allow water to flow from fore to aft. I'd make sure the holes forward of the tank and under the tank are clear of obstructions. Since your this far along I'd personally pull the tank and se...
