    went for first ride saturday

    Well,after putting 4 inch on, grate,impeller,filling ridge plate holes,wedge. I put the Solas nose cone on,little worried for it coming unscrewed and riding up. So i took a wide chisel like and dented/booger'd up the threads in four spots/lines (good idea for people to do that)and silconed it.
    And some adjustment,cutting my VTS rod,drilling it/tapping it (so i can adjust it) run hose clamp for support around the plastic (so it don't split) little grinding on the nozzle (can now throw a rooster about 10 ft above the water,lol,) And when i wave jump, with trim all the way up, it really lifts the front end up!

    Only road for about 3-5 min. (includes getting out of no wake zone) Not sure what i got for speed,but i lost my sunglasses AGAIN! My wife wasn't very happy,but she didn't get as mad, because after i took a lot of crap from her on lost sunglasses, she lost hers. lol got to get me some floating straps for sure.
    HOPING to go out this weekend and gps the speed

    Its was great to get out though!
