    thank you god !

    6 months, countless man hours, 253 green hulk threads, lots of reading, $1000.00 in parts, 17 headaches from the wife, lots of scrapes &scratches, I have finished my 94750slt. Installed battery today & fueled it. Lots of anxiety when I hit start button! to my surprise this boat started way easy, my kawi is as cold blooded as they come. I sarted boat on trailer & determined jetting is right on just need to take to lake & fine tune. After all my wifes pissing & moaning about this boat she went out & had daddy bought it but momma got it & some aqua colored turtles. Thats fine bye me though I dig that my wife loves the lake more than I do. I also say thank you Mr. John Zigler for his patience & tech knowledge, great polaris parts & good prices. Thank You ZIG. Im bored already! I am now looking for another boat I was going to buy a yami. But I think Ill try a hot rod polaris pro 785?
    Thanks to all those who assisted in this build I truly appreciate it !
    Brian

    Nice Brian.

    I don't care who you are the first hit of the start button on a project boat is always a little scary. LOL

    I am in for about $1000.00 already also. I know exactly how you feel. Once you start you can't stop. I should finish up my cosmetic stuff this week and I will be done as well. I am doing something with decals also. I am going with a bulldog theme to dedicate this SLT 780 to my best girl pictured below. She is up for anything. I have to get her a PFD so she can go for a ride.

    I am already thinking of getting another one. I don't even know where I am going to store it.

    Do any of you guys have dogs that would go out on your ski? My dog wants to go everywhere.

    My dog Arnie used to go with me all the time, as a smaller dog it was O.K. but when he got into the 100 plus zone I made him stay at the camp site...man did he hate that. LOL

    CONGRATS! they are fun to work on arent they? I know the feeling of being done! Mine runs Finally// after a exciter box, flywheel and wires coming loose, I think I have it right. Man, Get a Pro.. if your think you blood boils from a slt, just imagine tripples popping n pinging in your driveway.. it drives me nuts.

    I want another Pro to build! A Hot Rod boat breaking stub shafts! I have 4 of them to break,lol I got half the parts anyways for one more. I see why chopper owned 5 of them! It's the ADDICTION.

    How come none of the seapoos come around me ? I saw a bunch today and not one would come by... Chickens.. it wasnt even running right.lol

    Thanks everybody, as I read what bowsniper said about tripples popping at high revs in the driveway! I could almost smell 2-stroke oil & race fuel it gave me shivers. I would love to start it around 9;30 at night. My neighbors hate jet skis, like were some sort of biker gang

    You go Brian! Go for the pro next, I have had mine for what... 2yrs almost now and it still not back together. It will be one day soon. Thats a good feeling on any engine when you take all apart and put it back together and she fires on the first lick!!!!!! Its funny somtime back I think I said whats more exciting, cranking up the lawn mower or the chain saw. Two strokes rock!!!!!
