Well it's been a really long time since I posted an update. The transmission never ran right. I've now gotten a new rebuilt and it works great. The rear seat has been added. I've also gotten my hands on a boom. I've also come to the realization I need more speed. I'm getting 43.6 mph with Gps on my phone with just me in the boat and no skier and I need 45-48 for one footers and barefoot slalom. Leaning towards starting a barefoot boat project as that's rapidly turning into my passion.

I seem to recall that you had some carb issues. Did you ever get them worked out? You might be able to tweak another mph with some tuning, but 44 -45 mph is about max for a stock set-up. You might gain a little with GT40P heads and an improved intake manifold. If footing has become the passion, you might be better off going after a Barefoot 200.

Just hearing this I want to welcome you to my World... I am 250 with a 90 190...... The extra speed is a must... However with the shape of your 190 Hull you will not get much more... Great Project.... Thanks for bringing her back to Life!

Yea, Im 180 with a size 8.5/9 foot. I did manage 44.7 mph with 3 people in the back seat. But it didnt get there that fast. Its been awesome knowing the boats back to life. Im on the lookout for a Barefoot 200, or a sanger dxii.
