I got a '89 ps 190 and everytime i back off the throttle that thing just stops dead, and i wonder if iv'e got brayks, were they standard or optional and where are they located, i've looked in my MC owners man-u-all, the INDMAR owners man-u-all and my MC service man-u-all and can't find any info on them brayks. Do you think that instead of a btayk pedal there is a switch in my footrest that engages them. I went from a 3 blade prop to a 4 blade and it even stops quicker. Do i need to replace the pads or shoes soon. Anyone have any logical explanations

what are these brayks you talk about? is it some kind of mechanism that slows the rotation of the prop when you let of the gas?

Well, wat am i gonna do now wit CHIP, he already contracted a big ole semi-double-clutchin', mother_______ tracter/traylertruck driver to go to crocchies pond and obscomb his boat, take it to california and overhaul hit, and arranged for ron to go west young man for the undressing of his redid water ride. He'us gonna put 4/4 blade propstoppers offin a 29" wheeled 4x4 hyundai dump truk to keep his boys from runnin' it into the pier.

Gotta go now, CHIP FOOSE called on his cell fone and he's still runnin' down the road chasin' that truk driver tryin' to get him to stop from goin' all the way to L-O-L FL. to pik up that yeller boat. Now i got 2 people sayin' they's gonna pay me back fer stuff i got started. I guess askin' him to redo my van to match my boat is out of the question now......bye

You be right JIM, Always, Wal-Mart, Always, cause the spouse has directions to cremate me and spread 1/2 my ashes in a cart return stand [MC decal applied to the sign so she remembers where i'm at!], so when she shops there she can visit me and the other 1/2 she is to spread on the boat ramp at the lake, so everyone will run over my butt when they go skiing every weekend. And remember, if you ever go up north never eat no yeller snow! Think Wal-Mart has any white and yeller MC X-STAR RC boats for L-O-L Ron?, that gives me a idea!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!......later, i gotta go to Wal-Mart!

Maybe it was 'cause you didn't release the emergency brake on your boat?

Just mite have figgered it out, the dealer didn't tell me i wuz suppose to take the boat of the trailer, i'z taken it looze from the ball at the ramp. Now i know why i kept hearin' tires squall when i went under that bridge in shallow water and they'uz fish hangin' outta tha plastik fenders when i got home, kinda like road kill, instead lake kill. And threez peoples who buy them fast fishin' boats and all long i gots a fish and ski boat in one. It's startin' to come to me now, lemmie think somemo and isles get bak to youin's later.

Vegas, you made me laugh!!!

Not that the day in itself wasn't interesting because I'd just met my driver 15 mins prior and she'd never driven a tournament type boat and the look on my her face was absolutely priceless the first time she disengaged the accuski and the "brayks" engaged.......

Y'all got me worried now. My ProStar stops great on the trailer, but not worth a flip in the water. Y'all think maybe I'm getting water in my brayks?

You got that right, been in the hi 50's and low 60's about all this month here and now their calling for maybe some freezing precipitation in the weather this next week. I'm on the edge and i'm ready for some snow and temps in the 20's so it will get this over with and spring will start. If there was some cold around here i'd build a fire in the fireplace and roast some dogs and mamma could heat up her buns, that woman can make cold out of a lightbulb and its driving me up the wall. I keep telling her to put on some clothes, but she says just go work on the boat. D---, i can't win!
