    SEADOO 951 X4 build different spin

    Hey guys, been reading all your X4 builds and appreciate the great documentation and tips to get me started. It has been a 10 year absence since I last raced and built these money pits. Have 20 years under my belt overall and even purchased one of these new in 96! My teenage boys are into Seadoo thing now so here we go! Owning a stereo shop in Oregon provides us with a great deal of resource and tooling to make this happen fast and cheap. We even built full XPL carbon molds top and bottom, as well as an RXP top mold lightweight. Our goal was to build a "race boat fast" stock dependable play full boat. Im tired of wrenching on these things at the lake. My job is sit in the Wakesetter , drink beer and supervise kids!(; First off, no way this old man was going to spend a minute leaning inside any hull working on it. So 2 guys in 2 hrs split it in half. Royal pain the the arse to say the least. Next we relocated battery to front countersunk. Filled in exhaust outlet and cut away floor for water box. Day one down!

    making fast progress.

    Interesting note on doing some weight savings. The foam inside boat weighs in at 6lbs. Removed it and installing Kayak inflatable bladder at front. The factory foot pads come in at nearly 6lbs. I assume Hydroturf are less! Took out all the inside wiring clips at one pound. There will be no electronics at back of boat, everything located at front... only the bilge pump and VTS. as kids say " cool Dad your doing a wire tuck".

    Engine mount

    Not sure why I went this direction, but now Im just determined to make it work. Aluminum bracket, then spacing up Yamaha mount for correct height. Wondering if a 4 tec mount will work ? anyone know height of 4tec? need 3 inch tall. Current is 3.5, I gained 3/8 with aluminum. My alignment engine had a rough life.. rod even took out starter!

    Good to see you here, Brian. When it's done, will you bring it up to Crescent so I can try it out?
