  • I've been busy.

    Thought I'd re-do some interior while the motor is out of the boat. Re-did the kick panels and lower panels. Going to put the diamond cut mat in place of the old crunchy carpet on the side panels. I completely removed all old speaker wire and replaced it with 16 awg marine rated wire with the LED wire integrated in the same jacket. New LEDs and controller and then a new system once the motor is back in. Will post more pics of the finished product.

              Well, a combination of things. Boat overheated at the end of last year. Brand new impeller shredded ( Sierra). I limped it back to the courtesy dock as we were only about 50 yards away. I went through the Tstat and all the hoses and found all the pieces. Thought that maybe the input hose to the impeller might be clogged with something so I flushed that and it was fine. after reading some comments on the Amazon page, I found about half a dozen people had the same issue with the impeller they bought. The Amazon Dealer is Stay Cool Pumps. What eventually help cause the motor to go was the dreaded VP fuel pump paint chips. Forum cylinder was runner leaner than the others causing more heat. When the boat overheated, Forum dropped a sleeve. The mechanic pulled the plugs and turned over the motor and water came shooting out of cylinder Forum New motor will be installed in 2 weeks. Wanted to go with a stroker motor, but my mechanic said it would take about 3 months due to finding some one to reprogram the ECU, so I just went back to stock. He said he could build one that was carburated, but I have the GXI with the Multi port injected motor and didn't want to lose that. 320 hp is enough for me.

                        I'm putting in a Fusion stereo and it is smaller than the single din opening. Found a guy on FB that CNCs these out of acrylic and laser etches them. Stereo plate.jpg Stereo plate.jpg
