Do you have the MariStar 240 Open Bow or the SC Cloaked? As you can see here it's tight turning out of the manifolds and that's why the SM is so good as the exhaust exits right along the motor stringers.




I looked closely at mine and the one at that link you send me is a lot different, close but different. Mine don't have the 90 degree hoses but the SM actually has the 90 degree to straight hose...

Plus the ends of mine are 45ed to not interfere with the dog house.



Let me go to your home page and look at yer pics to see your boat. If you want to see more of mine and this set up to compare you can go to my home page, I have a few more there.


Lumbergh you're my hero man! That dog house looks damn good! As for the swim step, IHO it looks good too, just some people don't like to teak oil. If you look at most sail boats and fishing boats with teak it makes me sick that they don't but I think it just grips better without teak oil... It will last longer with oil though. My PO had to replace ours a couple of years before we bought teh boat due to no oil.... It was falling apart he said.... He got a replacement straight from MC and then he even took it to their shop and they shaped it for him as it came to him unfinished... It was worse than yours when I bought the boat even though it was only a couple of years old.... Looking good dude!

I see your situation now. I am off base as to your application. I was thinking along another line and didn't see the forest for the trees.... That's a nice looking machine you have there....

Lum.. just yanking your chain on the platform. Your board looks nice. I'm just too lazy to work up a good teak lather on my board. Thus the once a year wash...

Removed the engine cover and took off the vinyl skin and foam to get down to the base.My engine cover had started to sag alot.I was shocked at how destroyed the base was it had big cracks in it and the alluminum was seperating from the honeycomb.
I also found alot of dirt and sediment between the vinyl and the foam on the rear part of the engine cover.
Only thing I can think of how the dirt got there is when stoping to pick up a downed rider water will sometimes come over the engine cover and get in threw the seems on the vinyl.And deposit the sediment.We have alot of sediment here in the IL water.. That also exsplains how my air cleaner gets dirty.
-Cleaned air cleaner
-installed oem thermostat
-installed new water temp senser and new pcv valve.

The nice thing about the way the cover is built is that you could reupholster if needed (I don't) and not remove engine insulation do to the trim line on the inside.



Then the swim step was needing some attention.



So I sanded it and applied teak oil (coat 1, do more in the next few days).



The camera flash makes the step look lighter than it is, a nice rich color came out with the teak oil.

Edit: I love the look of an oiled platform. Plus I can't justify MC replacement cost if it dry rots to pieces on an older boat.

nice job lumbergh!!!

we have a lot of sediment in our ski water is putting it lightly..... below the Starve Rock Dam that sediment jumps out of the water at times...

That river is just down right thick sometimes....

I bought a 3' section of riser hose (Trident) and cut it down to 2 x 17" pieces for the risers.

Reinstalled left riser with new hardware and gasket.

Installed new riser hoses (L / R). Applied plenty of anti-seize and they went on easily.



Installed new amber marker lights on trailer (one was broken) and had to buy 2 to match both sides.
