    Summer is Coming

    That was painful to have to read! We were lucky enough to make it out 18 times this summer. Last time out was the second week of October, we had a nice couple of weeks of high temps in the upper 80s (that 37C for those south of the equator). Do enjoy your boating season and keep us updated on how your boat does.

    She's a beauty! Lots of bells and whistles.

    Is your throttle lever in it's neutral position (not slightly engaged in forward or reverse)? Switch for safety lanyard fully engaged (if you have one)? Do you hear any noise at the starter, even a click?

    best way to clean grungy swim platform

    I've used Meguiars High Gloss Polish #45 on stains (on white gel coat) and had good results. Applied with an RO buffer. You should have quite a cocktail of cleaners if you follow all of these suggestions.

    Shipping Company

    In 2011 I used a company by the name of 360 Boat Load out of San Diego to haul my boat from Chicago, IL to Roseville, CA. Boat was delivered on time and as per the contract, I had no problems. PM me if you want his number.

    Barn Find!

    Thought that looked like the good ol California foothills in the background. Looks like a nice find a challenging project. Where was the barn at that it came out of?

    2 year search is over !!!!

    Seadek-I would provide a template for your layout to Seadek. If you rely on a previous customer's pattern you're also relying on the accuuracy of that customer's layout and their skill level in doing so. Also, swim deck sizes vary from model to model. Be safe, make your own, you can't return it once you've got it.

    Compression Test Results

    I would keep an eye on #7. If it didn't come up with the oil put in the cylinder you may have a valve or head gasket issue.

    Just Purchased 2007 256 SSI - So EXCITED - Question?

    Trim tabs: ultimately I think you'll want them. Stereo: Adaquate for stock but could be much better. I'm planning on donating my deer to an upgrade for this next season. As far as arch mounting, keep in mind that most of the sound is intended to be directed toward whoever is at the end of the tow rope. Beaching it: Did it all the time with my previous boat and it showed. Still have a virgin keel on this one and plan on keeping it that way. 3M offers some nice keel guard kits if you don't mind the slightly funky look. Congrats on your new ride, we need pics when you have them. Too bad you only have a 5 week long window of use.

    Named Boats…….Who has em?

    I named mine "CHILD SUPPORT". When I stopped paying it I could more than afford the boat. Get a lot of laughs on it. Just the one meaning, nothing deep.

    full or empty

    +1 Less volumetric area for condensation to form in. There is water in your gas.

    Who's holding out?

    88 here last Saturday. Temps have been up and down though. Should stay out until early November. Biggest problem is no lakes close by with water left in them. Have to drive an hour and a half. P.S.-Members in Florida and the gulf states need NOT respond to this post!!!

    Island Hopping ... the last cruise this season

    I'm jealous. With our lake system our here you're stuck where you launch, one lake. Pull out and trailer somewhere else and then you're stuck there. I would love to have the freedom to go from place to place like you can. And such beautiful scenery!! Not that ours are terrible but here at the lower elevations of California some of our lakes have nice shorelines and some look like the surface of the moon! Nice pictures, thanks for sharing. Hoping to get in a couple of more runs before the weather turns.

    My new slip neighbor is very skilled at tying knots

    That's a bit of a stretch don't you think?
