Is this the Ski you got for free from your boss' friend (or whoever)? Damn, you got a major project ahead of ya. Where are you sourcing the powerplant and parts? Do you know what you're doing? :p

Oh, and Leroy's gettin' huge. Pretty soon he's gonna topple you over and do more than just hump your leg :wub:

Nah, that ski is long gone. and no, I don't know what I am doing. I love wasting money :woot: :ugh:

I a picking up the engine next week. It's a 760cc Yamaha engine with a brand new crank, pistons, and all gaskets/seals/bearings. In stock trim it's rated at 95hp. Before it even touches the boat, the cylinder will be ported, and the case will be as well. I am also using a pair of modified Mikuni 46mm carbs, with a much much much better than stock exhaust. :)

He's about 115lbs :eek: It's like he gets growth spurts or something :lol: One week he's barely 100, next week he's 110. Now 115 :eek:

My CF and fiberglass supplies are probably going to run me about 500 bucks :crying:

only 95hp?

Well, is right at about 50hp for the 650cc engine that came stock in it that I grenaded the crank in. The whole ski ready to go weights about 300lbs. Also, the 95hp number (for the 760cc engine I have) was for the stock engine with OEM pistons, stock exhaust, stock carbs. I am going to be running dual 46mm carbs (Stock was 44mm, but not nearly as good as the aftermarket 46's I'm getting), and stock compression that was around 150lbs. I will have an aftermarket head bumping that compression up to about 185-190. Just the pipe I am putting on it adds 23hp to an otherwise stock engine.

My engine also has aftermarket pistons and crank. Both are brand new :)

After my new CC billing cycle starts, I'm either buying a new mountain bike, or all my fiberglass crap.

A detail roller (CF has to be nice and straight looking :ndance: )
