    Are there any markets Sea-Doo hasnt tapped into yet?

    I doubt it will get beat to pieces, its BRP's composite hull (i.e. plastic) just like the Spark. It will take massive amounts of abuse. I love the idea and think they will sell extremely well for BRP just as the Spark has. Its refreshing to see a mfg. innovate instead of imitate. The...

    Snooping around.. Pontoons! Lol

    Mine is the 25'! Interesting that you lost speed pulling them up, I think I'm going to move mine up a single hole and see what effect that has. I run my trim at a pretty similar number on the Avalon digital dash to what you are running too, I found my best speed was around trim position 11-14...

    @RiverDave are you finding it as hard as I am to get people to help with performance setups on these pontoons? I've noticed a few different guys are running the motors higher on the mounts but spinning the props inward, it appears to get the drives out of the water a bit but keep the nose high...

    Shop Tour - DCB.

    Thank you for the kind words! I loved my F32 and it was a great boat and a great project. Some of the biggest things with my M37 that I really love, it stays on plane down to about 18mph which is amazing for canyon exploring on Powell, the outboards are so easy to service, it’s quiet at any...

    Shop Tour - DCB.

    My boat is there for some updates and items I wanted done after having it for a bit! We absolutely love the boat but always have things that you want attended to after having it for a bit. I’m also having Tony adjust my drive height and toe to my liking while it’s there too just to dial it in a...

    Snooping around.. Pontoons! Lol

    It’s definitely off the mark for twins, but Powell’s elevation and temp isn’t helping the cause either. I’m thinking based on prior posts raising the engines up two holes will be a good starting point. I’m probably propped a touch heavy for Powell as well but I think the 21s will be great for...

    Snooping around.. Pontoons! Lol

    Any update to this? I just received my twin 300 Avalon from Jack at PMC (great transaction btw, could not be happier with Jack and his team). My motors are mounted as low as they can go. My best so far on Powell is 54mph at roughly 5700rpm spinning rev4 21p on my 1.85 gear case for a slip of...

    Lake Powell bans houseboats?

    Not a houseboat ban from the lake, just simply that they cannot allow houseboats to be launched and retrieved at the Wahweap ramp at this time until other provisions are made. I know they are planning to do everything they can to maintain access to the lake despite the lowering levels.

    2021 Regency 250 DL3 - Highly Recommend

    The toons are just so easy, these Regency toons are definitely on my radar.

    2021 Regency 250 DL3 - Highly Recommend

    Now that you've had this thing a while what are your thoughts? The Regency toons seem like one of the best deals in the business right now!

    Mercury 450R - any issues ?

    Awesome!! I’ll come over one of these nights and dig through it. AJ mentioned that to me when I was down there last and said he’d get me a “kit” built at some point. You and Randy are going to have enough stuff between you to power a factory race effort soon enough!

    Mercury 450R - any issues ?

    Do we have a thread on here with service info and how to info on these newer merc outboards? I think there are several of us that end up having to do our own service work for various reasons and a thread that details that work would be beneficial to us all. It's crazy to me how difficult it is...
