    Seadek or Gatorstep for swim platform

    No burning of edges, they are fine. Bear in mind my boat stays out of the weather when not in use (outside, but covered). It can get a bit hot to the touch on a really hot Kentucky day, but not terrible like some I've felt. It's close to the water, anyway! If I had it to do over, I'd choose the same colors. The colors are mica over black (not grey, just a bad picture). My boat has the 'Champagne' interior color scheme (tans, browns). The mica does not match, but I feel it offers a reasonable complement . . .

    My Tow Vehicle was DESTROYED! (Video and Photos)

    2015, V6, AWD, white, frost beige interior, dvd system (never used), tow pkg, sunroof, running boards, mud flaps, 32K miles. On days with >30% chance of rain, it stays in the garage. Search 'Citadel' on this site to find a Durango SRT thread that has a pic of it. I guess I should discuss it with her . . .

    Engines -- on a 2004 220 ssi

    I think you can achieve what you want with the 220 with 5.0 through prop selection, as you've indicated. Loss of top end of course, but 220 SSi s with 5.7s don't grow on trees. The 220 has an excellent layout and rides great. Good luck.

    220 SSI Bravo 3 Props

    My boat was originally spec'd to come with 26s. I had them swapped for 24s for better hole shot. For my boat, 26s = best top end, 24s = good all around, 22s = best hole shot. Keep us posted.

    What he said. As a point of reference, I have a 220 SSi, 5.7 L, B3 w/ 24s 3x3. Good all-around performance. Let us know what they say; there are a few 220 members here.

    Ugh, that's not good. Prolly your house roof as well. As an aside, how do like the mega cab on your truck vs. the crew cab? Good luck with the repairs.

    I learned a long time ago to distance myself from 'scorekeepers'. If it seemed like a lot of different people were coming at me, then I'd be asking myself why that is. Let's move on . . .

    I recommend ignoring it, or responding with humor as I did. You're both 'last word' types . . . But I suspect folks that try to respond to spammers will have difficulty with that (tongue in cheek on this one!). #tiltingatwindmills I would like for our forum members to be respectful, and preferable tactful to one another. The atmosphere on this site, as well as its membership numbers and activity, is deteriorating. #donquixote Hey, the man has put up some cool videos, and he introduced us to CORN BOMBS, a not insignificant contribution! And I did see a genuine nice post recently, which was cool.
