    I agree with the above about the pylon being the strongest tow point. However, I often pull tubes and skis from the tower: Our tube can nose dive just a bit at start/stop and towing from the tower...

    Brayden has some useful pictures of it. 2 installed and 1 laying on the floor upside down. (No hockey pucks to keep it in place)

    A hole saw is really overkill for this. The cut doesn't need to be perfect; any imperfections are covered by the deck plate (ok only within reason but easily 1/4" of slop)

    Even a small spill in the hull will be quite noticeable in the bilge water. Have you recently changed the oil? If it's actually a leak and not noticeable, you'll just have to keep an eye on all of...

    I just used a dremel with a spiral cut bit. Fiberglass is easy to cut.

    I used a bit of the 3M 5200 marine adhesive because I was doing a thru-hull and it was easy. That area below the locker isn't perfectly sealed (the real root of the problem) so I don't think you...

    How do you store your boat? I ask because my vinyl developed a handful of small cracks in the exact same location as yours. On mine, it is now very obvious that that back edge of the vinyl is hard...

    I wouldn't expect it to. The manufacturers definitely make a different cover for 2006 and up.

    Do you have a spare prop? If not, it would be worth sending that one in for repair and then keeping it as a backup. What was the reason for removing that impeller?

    I like the way you think! If you need a third, let me know. We too normally get a ride in November but I'm not sure if it will happen this year. The water temperatures are cooling faster than normal.

    We had the pleasure of taking an hour lesson/clinic with Dom when the tour was here. He had a lot of good tips and advice. My wife goaded him into taking a 5 minute ride for our viewing pleasure and...

    Whoa! Ditto this. I would never park on a hill and expect the truck's e-brake to hold it. You can get a pair for less than $10. I always keep them in the truck. If something ever happened and you had...

    It's not that important. The biggest difference in my opinion is the handle. Cheap handles feel bendy and squishy to me. Other than that, it's "nice to have" all of the different take off sections of...

    A disadvantage to I/O's in a salt water environment is that there are more parts left submerged at all times, this means more maintenance to prevent corrosion. An OB can be entirely removed from the...

    It depends on the geometry. Let's say the "minimum" for a slalom course is around 2200' by 300' which by my calculation is a little over 15 acres. You will get good at P-turns - fine for skiing, but...

    I think the NADA prices are usually a little low for boats. I think this is due to banks using it as a loan guide and needing a realistic "what can we get for this boat if the loan defaults" price....

    Hmmm, that is true. But the rear bags were set up the same way. Did the design assume that no air ever got into the system?
