    Before modifying the linkage, when you put the pedal to the metal and all 8 barrels would dump at once, sometime the engine would backfire and it would throw a flame ball out the front of the scoop and past your ears.

    Prop was a 17" pitch 2-blade - each time the prop makes one rotation it would propel the boat forward 17" - or that was the hope or theory.


    It takes special talent to run a flat bottom V Drive at speed. Working both the throttle and the cavitation plate at the same time requires guts, serious coordination, and a "feel" for the boat. Mike I know you paid a dear price but I appreciate the fact that you still miss your Sanger.

    my dad has a boat, my buddy has a boat. everyone says don't buy a boat, use someone else, but this makes me want to find a discounted boat that needs some cosmetic tlc. Found one on craigslist even haha.

    This is correct.

    I worked on boats and on the water for almost 40 years. Don't do it. Lol

    BOAT- Bust Out Another Thousand.

    Definition of a boat: A huge hole in the water that you try to fill with cash.
    It is no coincidence that man's best friend cannot talk.

    More....


    Before I took off for the Texas Roadshow Detailing Class I was doing garage laundry and took this picture. This shows how many pads we used to do the correction and polishing work to the Cougar Tunnel Hull.






    Today I put the foam pads away. Have not washed the wool pads yet.


    I'm sharing this because from experience, I would say most people, most detailers included, don't know how many pads it takes to do this type of work. Here's a clue... it takes more than one pad.
