Going straight to a slalom ski may be a little hard. You might want to get up on 2 skis, learn how to drop a ski in order to get to 1 and then after you can do that start getting up on 1. Just...

Awesome picture of the kid surfing. And look, no rope (seems lately I have seen quite a few pictures and videos of people "surfing" with the rope).

NOT that I would ever even consider it (what little fishing I do I use our paddleboat), but really couldn't you easily do this without messing up the boat at all? A couple spare brackets for the...

My uncle had a problem that sounds somewhat similar on his '95 Maristar 200VRS. It never seemed to start well and the best way I found was to give it extra throttle (he yelled about it when I did it...

Definitely angered here. Didn't vote for the current regime and certainly won't again. Then again doubt many people that can afford MC's of any age did.

'First' time in the course, WOW

Well then i'd have to say that there is a very good chance your LT-1 may actually be an LT-4. If so great news for you as the heads were more efficient (ports were better plus little bigger valves,...

My season starts Saturday (Upper Michigan is where the family lake place is, water probably still 50's if not 40's given the recent weather). The good news is that on our lake there is seldom ANY...

LT-1's never had Vortec heads. They had an aluminum (Corvette, f-bodys - Z28, Firebirds) and an iron version (b-bodys - Impala's, Caprices and such) and that's it. In '96 GM came out with the LT-4...

I agree with you to a point. I also agree it is a SMALL data set but all I had. '94 to '95 was a different hull too with no change. Could the '98 hull really have so much more drag that even with...

I guess the best way will be to compare same hulls same motors between the years and what rpm and mph they do. If it's the same then that'll pretty much tell you that nothing changed horsepower...

Bringing up the LT-1, they were playing HP games back then too if you ask me. They started at 318 (if I recall) and by the end they were calling them 340 or more. Since nothing ever changed HP wise...

I put Stargazer on my '95 190 last year and now wonder how you can even pull people without it. It's that good (to me). Makes surfing WAY easier because manually driving in the 10 mph range and...

Stopping water from puddling on cover?

I have a '95 190 and whenever we are at the lake the boat stays in the water (very clean water) and gets covered every night. Trouble is whenever it rains the cover allows the water to create huge...
