Co-worker gave me some durablocks, 600, 1000, 1500 as I need to work on a few areas.

Looks like rain in the forecast for this weekend. Also, I'll be installing a new radiator and tranny cooler in the SUV this weekend.
Keep the updated PICTURES coming too!!

Here are some pics. Nothing is 100% done. Some areas are untouched, while others have been cut & polished.

Spent the weekend working on our 03' MDX. New radiator, PS & trans cooler. I also had to change out a faulty AT temp sensor. The freaking thing broke inside the trans and took me 2.5hrs to figure out on how to pry it out. I was in the garage until 2:30am on Fri.

A quick google & youtube search shows people wakesurfing behind this boat. What are your thoughts?

If you didn't tell us the motor was changed I would have never known. Everything looks similar to my Indmar 350.
Looks like long block only was changed. I need to get the Jasper PN and find out more info on it.

I actually don't have any... LOL. You could load the boat with ballast and take out 7 friends and see what happens. I'm sure someone else has done it.

Wakesurf - it can be done... wakeboarding to.. one think I notice on my 95 205 is the wake gets washed our to quick and you really have to bury a corner to get any surf wake... I don't recommend doing that by the way...on the PS DD.

Looks like fun. Maybe I'll try it one day.

I will be primarily wakeboarding. I heard the PS throws a respectable wake loaded.
