If you're talking to me, yes I'm looking at the 190.. I shot them a contact me thing and they sent me a email saying they'd contact me, I never got a call.. I guess I'll wait until tomorrow.. Yes they are offering free shipping up to 1500 from what I read, but I'd rather go and pick it up to see it in person..

It really depends on if they want to deal or not..

Replaced fuel system in my X5 hunting a high load/high rpm stutter/misfire. Fuel Filter, fuel Pump, in tank hose, gasket on top of tank, fuel hose to throttle body and return hose, had injectors cleaned, replaced fuel pressure regulator and all gaskets in throttle body.

Also pulled strut and shimmed to raise prop shaft height, replaced cutlas bearing, alighnment done on motor-shaft (gap is now less then 0.01mm all round flange). Also put new ( used but new to me) prop.

Can't wait for the weekend to take it for a test run....

Winterized. Washed. Just before backing her into storage. Goodbye 2013. Another great summer.

Playing with a DIY surf gate on my 2001 X10. If it stops raining I hope to get it in the water one evening this week to try it out.

Fully deployed


Retracted


This is just for testing. If it works I will spend some time making a higher quality piece!

- sorry to read this... - - hope for a couple few more runs down here.. hopefully work and weather will cooperate... also daylights savings time and really short days are putting a damper on a late season run...

Chicago boat show on January 16-20, 2014 - only 13 weeks 3 days.. -- Hope you come down to The Liquid Edge next season - maybe we could hook up for a same day lesson...

Yanked the boat and the course today, a little early this year but I'm doing a total repower w/ a Zero Off upgrade if all goes well.
