I know it doesn't matter any more, but having driven I-90 through Montana and I-80 through Wyoming, I would much rather drive I-90. Yes, there are passes to contend with, but Montana is simply a...

buying the impeller is the easy part, the hard part is removing the old one. The method that works best for me is to use simultaneously use two paint can openers to pry out the old one. Somewhere...

If it's not too late you should cancel the rebuild on the 4010 and get a 4160 to replace it.

I'd be worried about the amount of stress trim tabs would place on the structure. There's a LOT of leverage there.

If you have leaf springs place the jack under the equalizer, and raise both wheels at the same time. Or you can place the jack directly under the axle, as close to the wheel as possible. Do NOT...

Free Holley 4010

I'm getting rid of the OEM Holley 4010 that came with my PS 205. It works. The boat started ok, but ran a little rough until warm. It worked great for skiing, best holeshot that I've experienced. ...

replacing 4010 with 4160

disclaimer: I've never done this before.

I'm replacing my 4010 with a newly-rebuilt Holley 4160.

Only one question so far. When I took off the 4010, I found a 1/2" spacer made of some kind of...

Once you find the patterns, I'd recommend making the openings a little larger so that it's easier to remove and replace skis. Or, if you're a boarder, make the openings a LOT bigger.

IMO a family of five that skis needs a DD 205. It will hold all of you when necessary, will have better wake than the 209, and will come in under budget.

I bought new pads last year for my "skinny" 1.5" poles. The company that sold them to me just added a little more padding so that the pads they make for 2" poles would fit. It's not rocket surgery.

slowing down technique

I know the answer to this is "it doesn't matter" but I'm asking anyway.

When slowing suddenly from skiing speed, i.e. 34 mph, I rapidly bring the lever back into Neutral to let the prop freewheel,...

While 10% gasahol is probably OK, ethanol-free gasoline is better.
