This week's progress:
I finally started getting some stuff done this week....
*Removed ride plate, intake grate, and pump.
*Removed old turf mat, still have to get the old glue off with PB Blaster.
*Installed Fly Racing throttle lever.
Now I just have to figure out a way to get this thing off the trailer, and turn it upside down. Either that, or basically lean it up against the wall so I can work on the bottom, and seal the pump, etc.
My apologies for the crap cell phone pics!

When you order your turf you can get hydroturf with the name or with out (island)... You will also need new rivets for the back molding as the turf tucks under it(be a bioch otherwise to try and tuck with out tearing it . I replaced all three rear moldings and had to buy the rivet dress up caps too..

I can't offer any meaningful or bright ideas in my current state of mind. I have the patented Hurricane Ike head cold again. Everybody you talk to within 150 miles of Bridge City TX seems to have something.

Yep... I just haven't gotten around to drilling out the old rivets... And you gotta get Hydro Turf WITH the name!!

And do you guys think I will break that rear lip if I lean the ski up against the wall?

Get an old mattress and slide it back onto that then just roll it over onto its side/top.. Get styrofoam blocks to spread the load when its over... The lip is strong, but why take the chance and needlessly stress it.. You could build a tripod or get an old swing set and hang it on a pretty sharp angle by the bow loop as its pretty lite now(stout tree branch would work, as it cant weigh more than 250 lb. Now stripped)
