I'm thinking there really isn't anything wrong and you're holding out on us for dramatic effect... but oseriously, that sucks. At least it's a fairly easy fix. So I'm thinking, you'll switch those this morning (neglecting all other things today to benefit us), be out on the water by noon, then taking video so you can post it here for all to see.

Ox, LOL no I am not holding out on you guy's. I am going to look up the replacement's today. I hope I can get everthing today if not I will get it running on sat. Then I will be able to post a video

Peter, At least it is all bolt on part's that need to be fixed. It should go back together easy.
I am just glad to hear it run with nothing ratting on the inside of the block that would be a bad thing but it is all nice and tight.

At this point those are pretty minor bugs to work through. Frustrating when they are holding you up though.

That is four sure. Good news my local MC dealer has everything I need in stock. I am going to pick the parts up tomorrow and get them on and I hope it starts to work. It should with a full tank of fuel.

Sounds good Jim.
How long will it be before your pulling someone behind it?
The boat definitely looks good in the sun.
Are you planning on putting a platform on the back?
Congrats on your build!
