    SLTX Removed Trippples

    As I get ready for my next project and boredom setting in, I decided to remove the tripples.

    It looks so naked in the hull and it's hard to believe the pile of pipes can fit in there. LOL

    It seems like yesterday, when You built that puppy up.

    I see the black rattle can paint survived.

    That's what I was telling Conrad. It's been a perfect boat once I quit burning it down. Years of service and literally hundreds of hours on a trippple piped 1200, just awesome!!
    It was my first piped boat and I remember you and Artie helping me wee into the night, Good times!!

    Yup,
    I bet if you wouldn't have got the Matrix, the triple SLTX would have seen 75mph.

    I had a lot I could have done and I'm VERY sure mid 70's would have been mine.
    I could have still gone with larger carbs, hell I was still running the Keihins.
    5 vein SS still sits in the garage
    stock grate
    Bigger Impeller
    Race gas
    Tru hull
    Etc.
    Funny how we get side tracked.

    Yup,
    leak proof. Them fisher-like-men were not happy campers. I didn't crank it till it was IN the water on the ramp... and from about half a mile a way, you could see about 5 spotlights all turn and hit me on the ramp.

    I did my checks and got the hell out of there. I was a good boy, and didn't even go after the car alarms... this time.

    Lost my SD key, and only had my learning key the next day. Got it up to 6300rpms and tooled around, looking for problems. She seems leak tight...

    Next time out, I'm kicking the pig...HARD. No mercy.
