Hey all,

So, I have this idea. We start a boat juding thread were we all vote on a points based system. I'm just tossing out some ideas.

Points awarded based on stuff like boat, boat uncoved, boat on water, boat pulling something, stuff in boat, girls/guys, stereo, cooler, junk like that?

Good idea or not?

I don't think you really want to go there, anything like that around here is now unacceptable, a thing of the past and that's a good thing!

Crew is a plus +2 points per lady, -1 for old grainy photo! +2 for on the water.

Great way to start.

Your other photo -2 for shiny stuff hehehe. Both look very nice. I'd say 8 out of 10 on your 82 10 out of 10 on your show boat.

I still need to get new lug nuts first. I have to so something with the fenders as well, paint or rub them out. I'm leaning towards paint.

I can always use ideas and input from people about my boat. I was more or less using as a way to get people to post photos of their boats and the fun they have on them. Not so much as an internet boat show competition.

Yes, he did. Thats what we used to do back when we showed our boats at the reunions. It was a major pain in the a$$! What you're looking at there is probably 20-25 hours worth of polishing! Put it back in the water, and 1 trip later, you'd have to polishe it again. I myself had two sets of underwater gear. 1 for showing, the other for skiing.

Screw that!!! The 35th has chrome underwater gear already and the 93 will just have what it has.

How much dripping is normal?

That is what's nice about the newer boats with a dripless shaft... you do not need to tight the packing nuts, the shaft logs are always well lubricated for the shaft to do it's thing.

Newer is always more lubricated, good to know thanks Cam. On an older model would it just take longer to achieve good lubrication for the shaft??
