Ya......all the time you can't boat because you have to keep them polished!

Seriously, I don't think it would affect performance at all and sure would look b!tchin'! Just a pain in the butt to keep the up though.

SSTahoe,

What are you running for Power with those #6's and what speeds are you achieving?


Thanks, have interest due to a friend working on a similar set-up.

The boat had merc 800SC , but one was bad so we are rebuilding both motors. They should be around 1000-1100 hp Injected on the dyno. I don't know the speed....Im hoping for mid 90's but we will have to see

Polishing didn't cost me any speed but they do take some diligence to keep up. Look fine when done though. NK

Hey, just e-mail them to me and I'll post them up!

In regards to Minden/Gardnerville, how far is it to Tahoe and how is it as far as launch ramps, slips, etc? Isn't there another smaller lake nearby too?
