    1963 Lavey Craft Flatbottom

    Looks terrific, those air cleaners have become an expensive item, my Pop has those on a 69 Sanger with a Boss 9, as a kid i always wanted the bigger scoop but now realize just how cool they were!

    Pismo Beach Car Show

    I am curious about the ignition system on this Nova, anyone know about it? Those plug wires are bigger than they run on Top Fuel cars. What a great weekend for car shows, the one up in Laverne was solid as well, some beautiful cars out there.

    1963 Lavey Craft Flatbottom

    Dave, I love the exhaust tips on the Chrysler, I have never seen one like this in person, my Dad tells a story every now and then about our neighbor Rodger Buckner, who had exhaust like this on his Gaylord, Rodger leaned into the boat one time and ended up with a burn ring on his forehead... I...

    RIP AzGeo... You were a wealth of knowledge.

    This sport that we all love is relatively young and it's hard to see the pioneers on this sport / industry pass away. George made some bitchen stuff and rigged a lot of cool boats! My Dad and Brothers 69 Sanger was done with all Finish Line equipment, I remember when I learned that AZGeo was...

    Starter help

    Just a question on how you wash up, do you spay the engine down? I am fortunate to keep the boats in side but have several friends that keep them under a canopy and no issues like this.

    Changing Havasu channel demographics / use

    Its not just the Channel ( I have never been there) that has the changing demographics, its every place in the West, it is just getting sleazy and with more and more low class people buying some type of water craft it will continue to erode all over. By low class I am not talking about low...

    Boat wiring

    Power - Source - Lights... the loops you are seeing are more than likely a power 12v source and lights, these can all link and then you bring in the source or what the gauge is reading. Grounds can be different by gauge but make sure you have a solid ground and things should work good.

    Glen L Tornado V drive Build

    Look forward to watching this build, I used to get strut bearings and simple parts from Glen L over in Bellflower back in the day and loved looking at the drawings in his case and thumbing thru the books there. There were plenty of boats built with the steeper angle that run just fine, you're...

    New 79 Spectra 20 Project

    If you are near Long Beach I got a sawzall and in 15 minutes we can have that deck off and give you complete access :). It freaked me out when my Buddy wanted to do it, but I was not on ay time crunch, I knew this was going to be a long haul resto so what the hell we cut it off.

    New 79 Spectra 20 Project

    Getting busy!!!! my gosh the picture of the floor boards next next to the trailer brought back memories...actually made me start to twitch :) I remember when I was tearing our down and my wife walked into the garage and laughed, that was all she did then walked in the house, next time she came...

    Difference between DiMarco and Spectra?

    Spectra 20's are 20' 10", not sure on exact length of Dimarco. Dimarco has more cabin space as mentioned above by moving the dash forward. There we no laws in place on splashing a boat until the early to mid 70's, the Howard day cruiser was splashed right off a Spectra and little to no changes...

    1975 Schiada Jet Value ?

    I have actually been looking for a project... I have been thinking about the Howard 20' GN or the 19' Schiada that was sold to Howard which is what you have there less the protrusion sticking out the back end. I am not ready to pull the trigger, gotta finish my 65' Elco first.. This boat looks...

    Well this is interesting...

    Tow with a 3/4 Ton Suburban? - You Are a Menace to Society.

    Oh come on, he has all the horse power he needs in that Porsche to tow that trailer plus he has a 6,000 # GVWR . I love hearing people say that, you know its more about stopping the load then being able to pull it. We were at a launch ramp once and this guy with an Audi SUV rolls up with a big...
