I love the interior on that thing... looks awesome! Hopefully you get her mechanical issues figured out soon so you can enjoy it without being scared of being stranded haha. Nice boat!

Thanks! I am really happy with how it came out. I can't wait to show y'all a night pic, the lights give the speakers a glow from behind it and looks like I almost know what I'm doing lol. New carb came in today, I'm left confused though because it doesn't have float adjustment peep holes. Guess ill find out soon enough

The marine carbs used on MC's don't have external float adjustments. You have to remove the fuel bowl to make the adjustment. The new carb will come with the adjsutemnt already set.

The carb seems to be tuned fine enough so I'm not going to mess with it. I ended up having 2 wires mixed up from the distributor and that was causing the blowbacks.. Thanks for the tip mrmastercraft! considerable increase in engine response and low end power now with the whole ignition system and carburetor replaced.

I have been there for that. It's also amazing how well the darn thing will idle with crossed wires.
