yeah its the wrong flame arrestor. Don't know why that was on there, but thats an old pic that was sent to me when i was shopping. You don't see it now, because it has the mercruiser 454 black plastic cover on it.

No blower on there. At least not yet.

Now I just need to come up with a name. My girlfriend and I came up with a few names today but nothing that seems just right yet.

Liquid Force (I used to wakeboard a lot and used this brands boards)
Irresistable Force (A song from a band I really like)
Sin City
C-Word (not really in the running, but we saw it on a boat on TV last night and it cracked us up)

ahhh, this is the worst part of buying a boat.

Its a 26' Thoroughbred Velocity. Same hull as the newer 280's, but without the fiberglass platform. I believe they started calling it the 280 in 1996.

Lets see...

I'm 27, no kids.

My girlfriend and I have been together for 5 years.
(I suggested the name "a diamond is forever..." to her, and she laughed and then said NO WAY. I kind of like it though )

I'm a logistics consultant for a company that deals mostly in Department of Defense contracting.

My hobbies are drinking and boating. so not much help there. Although, I don't want an alcohol reference on the boat to draw any unnecessary attention.
