    Anybody remember this thread?

    Hard to believe it was almost five years ago! I am trying to remember what we had back then - someone correct me or add to this:

    - unmodded rideplates
    - unmodded 1200 grates
    - no porting, no big bores
    - stepped sponsons were pretty new
    - no dropped tabs
    - 13/19 props were the thing. Not even sure if the NuJet prop was on the scene yet
    - freeflow and SS removal were the bomb
    - no triple cooling
    - no dumping extra cooling water out of the heads
    - no sanding of the hull
    - no PET tachs - only crappy TT's
    - polishing the inside of the pump with a dremel for 5 days was fun
    - t-handles were cool, but not sure how to tune yet
    - putting in a d-plate took all day
    - running 150 psi without girdle bolts would blow your engine apart
    - no aftermarket reeds
    - no Lowel, TJ, or Kerry. Group K was the only ticket.
    - the best triple pipe skis (i.e. Fercho) were closing in on 75 mph, which was insane
    - the best single pipe skis were pushing 68 or 69 mph
    - I bet Fercho one million dollars that a single pipe ski would never hit 75 mph
    - you just had to have a jet trim seat cover

    No wonder we never hear from Fercho... He's a millionaire!

    We did have cutting air holes back then.
