Is that a tandem axle trailer? Kinda looks like it may be tandem duals, but can't tell for sure. That is ALOT of weight for a tandem, isn't it?

Looks normal to me. The underside of my swim platform and transom gets dirty from the exhaust. I run on regular gas.

The soot looks pretty normal. The brown stains on the underside of the swim platform look like they are caused from heat. Might need some more water induced into the exhaust or direct the exhaust tips at a more downward angle.

The one that is different is probably original.

It is a trip, with the front wheel missing. Look closer at the length of the fender.


btw, this thing has blowers, so that could attain to it running rich. (look for the water spot by the drives)

I have to do the same thing. The above the swim platform exhaust makes it pretty bad.

The 93 octane at my marina is ethanol free so it's worth a little soot....

when I am rafted with boats that have diesel generators I get a pretty nice soot line that looks like that. Although, in this case I just think she's just runnin a little rich. Sweet ride!!

I've seen this boat and I'm pretty sure it's NA, as mentioned above.

The last 20' of it is all engine room. Sounds incredible running down the lake, too!
