Congratulations on getting rid of the awful tribal decal.

The 197/X7 is such a beautiful boat with such great lines that if I had one I'd be inclined to not put any decals on it. My friends would...

That's true, but I don't know why so many use such a thick oil. If it was a highly stressed, high speed, automotive engine running in the desert at 100 degrees the 20w-50 would be OK, but IMO...

I would patch it with something. The quick and dirty way would be to use white MarineTex. Since it's not in a very visible area looks aren't that important.

Or do it the right way with gelcoat.

The 220 came in two versions, one with traditional dual console/walk-thru windshield, the other was single console on the right with walk-around design.

As you know, the TriStar 190 is OK, but it's...

Flush the transmission a couple of times, cheap and easy to do. Do some polishing and buffing before you consider a re-gel. I'm betting the trailer brakes are toast, replace them with disks, at the...

Not necessarily. A higher pitch prop will certainly drop your rpm and decrease hole shot. Speed may be lower, depending on what kind of revs you're getting with your current prop. There are a...

I'm definitely in the "yes, you need brakes" group. I use a Tahoe to pull my '92, quite a bit more vehicle than your Toyota. About twice a year I have an "oh $hit" moment when I need to stop right...

It seems that 95% of the time you can successfully ground the trailer lights through the hitch; the other 5% is problematic. It's best to run a dedicated ground wire from the trailer to the tow...

I think this is a great idea. The problem is that entry level slalom skis are $200-$300, and you can get a decent pair of combos for well under $200. I'd recommend getting both, a pair of combos...

I wonder if the 2003 specs were for an OEM old-fashioned cast prop, and the 2005 spec was for a CNC prop.

The CNC props are much more efficient.

My OEM prop with my '92 was a 13 x 13, I replaced...

I would recommend you look into getting flexible plastic RV sewer drain hose. It's much sturdier than the flimsy vinyl/wire stuff, won't get squashed or tear. Walmart would probably have it.

No matter what those deposits are they're gone now. Your ring gear looks pretty good. I had to replace mine last year because of several broken teeth.

Good idea. Just order an appropriate-size CNC prop from OJ or Acme. The new machined props are noticeably better than the old cast ones.

I have an O'Neill suit that I bought from Overton's, works great. Since you're using it for short periods of time, and not spending hours under water scuba diving, it will be hard to go wrong
