No more unexplained water.

You can't just blow water through the raw water pump it has to turn to allow anything through it. So you could in theory hook it up to air and start it but you would risk burning up your impeller (raw water pump) not to mention it would leave pockets of water in the system... it's just not the right way haha. I'm sure you will find the ss easy enough to winterize when it comes next year

Technically speaking, it was exported to Canada first. We brought it back. By showing the customs agent the MSO at the border, we were allowed to bring it back to the US duty-free.

It now resides in Wyoming, about 40 mins off flaming gorge reservoir.

The boat was in relatively good shape, though far from perfect.

I actually took a closer look at it this spring and he had it professionally sealed. When I say that, I mean that rather than just having the cover sealed shut, he had a piece of aluminum machined to the exact diameter of the hole and then pushed it down in there. The hole was then thoroughly sealed with great stuff foam.

At first I didn't understand why all the trouble and then I realized - the ski pylon is still 100% functional if desired.

You'll see us there. If we're not laying in horseshoe canyon, we'll be surfing by anvil Bay. Come find us. You know what our boat looks like, lol.

How do you like the X-80? I'm considering a 2006 with 200 hours on it... have you surfed behind it? How is it on fuel?
