Have you lake tested the Irritrol valaves yet? I just swapped out one of the Orbit 3/4" with an Irritrol 3/4" Ultraflow and will test them individually filling up one 750 sac.

Holy smoke, all that in 2 months wow you must be jonesing to get out in that boat!

Also that is how you beat the recession. You buy a good used boat, that was already the best deal on the market and leaves you a wallet of cash to make her yours :D

I did test the valves. I got the boat out yesterday for the first time. I didn't time the fill but It didn't feel like a big change between the 1" irritolls and the 3/4" orbitz. Which is the reason that I would like to change the intake all the way from the through hull scupper to the bags to a 1" line instead of 3/4". If I don't see a big change after that I guess the next step would be upgrading from the rule 2000 to the rule 3800.


Replying toi the last post..... That is exactlly what I did. I paid $21,000 for my 2005 Mobius XLV. Sold my 2000 Supra Launch which I owed like $4,000 on. Put $3,000 doen on the Mobius and with the remainder of the money I made Her Mine :D

The Rule 2000 is 1" intake with 3/4" out or the other way around?

You got your butt on backwards!!! The intake is 3/4" and the out is actually 1 1/8". I use it as a handheld backup now!!!

If it was me and I was going to be adding a scupper, I would go ahead and add a 1" scupper and use a brass bushing to go down to 3/4". That way if you ugrade again in the future, just remove the bushing and now you are at 1". The hole for a 1" scupper has an external diameter of 1 1/4".

imagine for a moment your butt truly being on backwards...

Do you think someone would get really freaked out from hearing the Decleration of Independence being recited from someone's arse and a preacher standing at the podium singing farts?

That phrase was in my head all day and I was waiting for a chance to use it. My dad was teaching me how to load black powder and I kept doing things wrong and he said "Son is your butt on backwards" I am still trying to understand the exact meaning of it.

I think that's a way to rephrase... your showing your ass.

Jesse, was thinking about you the other day...

saw some guy hauling a snapper rear engine rider to the dump. I was really tempted to follow him to see if I could snag the steering wheel for you.

Sorry, saw a college cheerleader on the street corner and my attention was diverted.



Black Powder?

You gotta come visit florida. We could spend a whole day playing with black powder.

As a kid, I used to make my own.

The local druggist never really believed all the stuff I was buying was for a science project.


Darn that college girl, that would have been a great upgrade to the snapper!!

I was loading black powder in my 44-40s for an upcoming shooting competition n GA. I have a bottle of magnesium powder and mix it with the Black Powder and then pour it in a hollowed out smoke bomb, super loud and bright!!!

I never thought you had any red neck in you. Just goes to show, even the smartest guys have a little red neck fun now and again :D
