A couple of weeks ago, I chucked my anchor with the stretchy cord over the side of the boat so a jetski could tie up (and stop ruining our water)

well the short section of rope I had the buoy tied to then attached to the anchor buddy got tangled on the anchor and the buoy just sank....


grrrr


$35 anchor
$30 anchor buddy down the drain.....

got a call from the Wildman yesterday, he went back to the cove and found my anchor and buoy just floating there like someone left it.


Rock ON!

Sorry D,

Boat's in the shop and I'd rather be able to cruise with bad form than not cruise at all.

Let's see some shots of you and G-man ripping it up!

That's him. I snapped 68 pictures of him in 4 passes. I think I got a few good ones. You think he's charging there, wait until his back is 100%.

I'm so sore right now, I'm typing this with my nose. 8p

Sorry for all your trouble, Brad. For starters, what's not running good on the boat?

What's it doing?

What's it doing?
Will not run over 25mph and gets slower the longer it runs. Can't give it much gas at all or it will bog down. I changed the fuel filter, but it didn't help. The warmer the motor gets the worse it is. Calling Tyler Monday to see if they can look at it.

Brad has gotten very tried of these inboard motors, seems I always have something not working right. Thinking about going back to outboard power, just seems to be more dependable over the long haul. I would love to find a MC openbow w/ an outbaord. I spent half the week riding in a deckboat with an outboard. Second time this summer at Greeson I've gone to another boat.

I was over there last week and the were three weeks behind.

Did you clean your flame arrestor?

Also, I seem to remember reading some stuff about there being some sort of updates for the ECM.

/got nuthin. Tell Shanon you're a friend of mine. Might help. Might not. Who knows? Call me when you come to town; we'll grab some lunch.

Brother, let's look at the manual and see if we can figure it out

I just got back from Conway, those dudes are the heat! If you're still going up there I'd recommend taking it to them....

Sorry for your troubles...
There is a screen at the inlet of the fuel pump.Mine got plugged up with debris twice since 4 years.Boat was acting the same as you,starving for gas when at more then 3000 rpm.
Real easy job...just messy with the gas...
