been working on getting both motors running, and success! cleanned the VST's with Sentry, and pumped it through the fuel rails. one low pressure fuel pump ended up being bad. and the float needle broke(my fault for not waiting), got the starboard motor running first, then transfered the VST to the port motor to get it running. waiting on fuel pump and needle kit for the starboard VST

had the fuel tank cleaned and pumped out today. hardly any water(less than half a pint), and almost no debris, he said if thats the original tank, it apeared to be in VERY good condition, and/pr its been cleaned before. one step closer to being in the water!

Agree, you smoked it. You have a Fountain. Great Carolina ride.

Twins are a huge plus. Learn how to maneuver them correctly....you'll shine at the dock :mrgreen:

Ha! You are right, I forgot what you do for a living :mrgreen:

But man.... Those twins when a new owner gets used to them make a huge difference in tight quarters.

Nice ride bro! Congrats sFun_crazydance

im actually used to running triples with gaffrig controls, 6 levers. i may do gaffrig/livorsi controls on this boat.

heres a few of the contender from the last trip out, i will actually be removing the leaning post from the contender and putting it in the fountain, the owner of the contender is having a cooler/fishbox leaning post made like whats on the newer contenders
