cooling lines on the old 99model GP's
Ok here is a tricky one, i thought id change the cooling hoses from the exhaust that exit through the squirters on the side because they lookin a lil tattered.Heres the big one, how the f**k do you get under the side of the hull to get to the end where it connects to the squirters?? I may be not a marine engineer or the like but id like to know if any one has ever tried removing them on this model? Or is this a remove the whole motor to get to it job which im not keen on!
Any tips would be great,

It's a whole lot easier if the styrofoam is removed from the hull. If you don't want to do that, it seem to me that it was easier to get to the outlets from the front of the boat...ie...come in from the front storage compartment area.

The "Groovy" plate is probably the least desirable.....I'd look for a used R&D plate or a Riva performance plate....from what I remember the "Groovy" plate is about the same length as the stock 800 plate so it should be good for High speed runs in smooth water. It just does nothing to control the porpoise you start to get in light to heavy rough water at speed. I think I have and extra R&D plate in the garage.
