    Maybe some more FREE speed?!?!?

    While I had my venturi off to remove the impeller nose cone I noticed 2 holes on each side of the steering nozzel....they pass all the way through and are tapped for the bolts that holds the reverse bucket on....the reverse bucket boltls do not go all the way through & this leaves a rough open area. I am going to fill the back of these holes with the same epoxy I used for my ride plate holes..... here are a few "rough" pics of the holes I am refering too.

    Share your thoughts.....

    I whittled out a 8x4x4 foot block of balsam wood for a hull. Shibby lent me his waterbox. Burned up in 3 mins. I was pissed. Went through 2 oyster knives to make it.
