Got my speaker rings back from the machine shop. Had the factory Clarion rings tapped and milled to accept Wetsounds. Speakers are now on the tower. First impressions are good. The speakers sounds extremely clear and crisp. Can't wait to get them on the water and test them out.

Spent some time trying to find the source of a backfeed causing the temp and oil pressure gauges to read higher when the blower is on. Found a break in the ground gang that I apparently soldered when I first got the boat. Solder joint let loose and ground is poor. Better with a jumper wire temporarily in place but still tracking down the remaining bad ground. Also found a fuzzy connecting in the harness under the dash. Next year I will be wiring in a new fuse box that is NOT on the underside of the dash.

Size:  64.7 KB from ethanol and neglect on my part from running ten gallons of ethanol gas with no marine stabil only sea foam.
I soaked the carb in a bucket with warm watsr. vinegar and 4 efferdent tabs ( thanks Garage Journal ) it stripped all the plating and dirt off the carb very nicely.
Since the plating was gone and the season is in full swing I am waiting to send the carb back to Holley for plating and opted for some engine paint and primerName:  ImageUploadedByTapatalk1375470622.087919.jpg

Tore my old fuel sending unit apart and used epoxy to put the magnets back in the foam. Now I have a working gauge again.

Fixed loose ground on the trailer wiring and installed a new 12v outlet in the bow for the tsunami pump.

Removed the warning stickers. The font was disappearing anyways.

Then gave her a good mid season wash and wax. Using Mequiers flagship wax.

Ready for the lake tomorrow!

Added this temporary improvement to avoid the situation where it gets kicked and fills one of the hard plumbed sacs ... Ironic I put the super sacr there to avoid that in the first place.

I'm going to either find or make a better switch guard.
