Its not working out for this coming weekend.. I don't have time to get everything together. Looks like its going to be the 16-18th. I hope we can get some hours on the boat this fall.. I've hardly been on the water, busy year with lots of job stuff.

Awesome project Nick! Glad to hear you are going to get the performance you were after. The setup looks really nice.

Enjoy it this fall and we can put these boxes full of sound system components in it this winter. Nothing like some loud tunes to harmonize with blower whine.

Give me a call when you are ready.

Well, I ran a little shakedown run of my own..

It ran just a fuzz over 88gps in a light wind chop and was rock steady/ very easy to drive. Against the rev limiter hard with the 5600 chip turning a 29Mirage (about 13% slip). This hull loves the mirage prop but I'm going to have to spring for a 29+ and probably have it worked up in pitch as close to a 32 as I can. Also, after talking to Jason, I going to raise the rev limiter.

The bad- I had a rocker loosen up- nothing hurt. Took it back over and Jason checked everything out. Can't wait to run it again.. espically with a bigger wheel!

I'll get some pics of the dash, but we just worked with what was there, so its messy looking (but solidly wired).

The stereo that Adam put it turned out awesome, thou.. I'll get pics of everything after I clean it up some- taking care of a few other things on the list first.

Its been boring in Superboat land lately... might as well update the 24s thread:

First order of business was ordering a oil t-stat from CP since my oil temps were way too low last fall. I was checking out the oil routing and I'd have routed the oil differently than what it was... it went from the block to the cooler, then to the filter, back to the block. The major problem (besides cold oil being harder to filter) is my temp sensor is in the oil filter housing.. so it was reading the oil temp after being cooled. I plan on routing it to the filter first, then t-stat, then cooler, back to the block.

It also was traveling the same direction as the water, so cooling wasn't quite as efficent as it could have been- in theroy. Not an issue with this motor.

Oil t-stat:

Its frinkin big! I wanted to mount it on the motor, but nothing
was going to work well, so I made a stainless bracket from
some scrap at work and installed it on the transom:

Somewhere between getting all the work done on it and
moving stuff in and out of the boat, I lost my anchor light. I've
been wanting to get a led one, so I can leave it on all night
while sleeping and not kill a battery.

I bought an Attwood that fits 95% of all bases and of course
mine is one of the 5% it doesn't fit. So got new base too:

The bow light had a small crack in it, and I've seen this led
one before while looking around. Thought it might look good on the 24 as a
replacement:
