Call me in the morning or when you wake up. 913 449-2426 about the exhaust.
Try staying in the cove all night you will have a blast.

Thumbs up Rough Bottom? / Cove allnight?

Yes its true a Rough Bottom will give you more lift increasing speed, but it will also cause more growth & give area for micro debris to adhere to.

Staying in the Cove all night sounds Good to me depending on the Company you have with you!


Oh Yeah! Good Company alittle Beer & Wine, that sounds like a Gooooood [email protected]!!

Fuel Economy:

1) Keep flame arresters highly polished.

2) Boat topless -- bare breasts reduce wind resistance.

and of course

3) ALWAYS boat downhill.

Try not reving your engines SO much !

Sounds like a good idea, but I could never NOT do that
