Nice boat! Welcome

I can help you out with decals for cheaps. dog house gas shocks are cheap.

What lake is that? looks nice. lot's of great resources and people here.

you should pop rises and take a look inside there.. also check prop shaft alignment -

another cheap job is shaft packing...

I rebuilt my trailer brakes... not hard.

How are the trailer tires... ?

See you found etrailer - good folks to work with...

You will have to join us for the 2014 Illinois River Meetup...

Mike

Thanks! Yes, please let me know more on the decals. That will be a winter project. I found the gas shock info in the FAQ. Any way you know the application info? I'd like to buy them from rockauto to save even more.

I'll look into it. What am I looking for inside the risers?

I have a master cylinder and wheel cylinders on the way. Everything else looks OK.

Need new ones. May hold off until later. Won't be towing more than 1/2mi once I take it up north in 2 weeks.

I was like "how did he know that?" I ordered a tranny and PS cooler for the SUV. I've had it in the box for about a year. Now I have a reason to put it on. I did order the keel roller from them.

Here is a shot of me wakeboarding behind a Rinker I/O a few years ago. A crappy jump, but the best pic I have:

Everyone would always say call or talk to Jim@BAWS (Bay Area Water Sports) in Tampa and that is where I got my replacements. Now that Jim has passed I am not sure who to contact down there. I'm sure someone will chime in with some updated information.
Here is their web site http://www.bayareawatersports.com/
