What prop did you end up liking better - the Max5 or Maximus? I think I read you cut off the diffuser on the Maximus? Is it the same length as the Max5?

I have a maximus. It went the fastest it's ever gone with that prop. Gained .5 mph

Yes, I had RD cut 1 inch off the total length of the tube. I'm not sure about the length of a max 5.

I'm going to strip the black paint and have them recoated in a different color. The seals wont survive the heat of powder coating, so I have to disassemble the rams. My friend Roy offered to make a spanner that'll fit the holes. :D

I'm having a hard time coming to terms with attempting to cross the border with my boat in tow. As much as I'd like to experience it, the reward doesn't justify the risk.

Trailer has no plate, or brakes..........


The rest of the country doesn't really mind me passing through, but commiefornia will have a field day with the "hula too" not having a drain plug.:eek:

On our way back to Washington from Havasu last spring, we got stopped at the boarders of idaho, Oregon, and Washington, they all have invasive species laws now.
For out local lake, we have get inspected and buy a sticker every year. Plus if we go to another body of water, we have to get inspected again...

Pics are out of order, but I finally got back to work on the tabs project. Paint is sandblasted off, made the little half moon pieces to mount the senders.
Flap disc will make quick work of blending the joint.

So does this mean pop tart is a blizzard chicken also?:):cool:
She's returning to cheeseland tomorrow. I've got a saltwater mission to take care of this week, so leaving the desert for just a little while. Be back real soon. 😎

Has Poptart been to Havasu before? What did she think? Looks like you gave her an awesome tour.

She came here with me for monster bash in '17. I wound up taking her up the gorge in RD's schiada. She was happy to be back. ;)

(Its a long story, but Dave tossed me the keys)..

A new river pad was in order, so I bought one.

this seems like a more appropriate hula HQ....

Got a spot on a canal off the St Johns river. It’s in between lake George and Sanford.

I’ll let you go look for it on google maps. 😉

Oh shit! You sell your place in Wisconsin? Bring your spray business with you, or sell and start something new down there?

Damn Hula, that’s a hell of a change. I think it was appropriate. Did you sell the place in Wi and move full time?

I sold everything in the house and came down here with boat parts and my clothes. I've got a couple different opportunities available, so I haven't ruled anything out.

yes.
Awesome to hear you’re doing well Hula. Did PopTart make the move as well?
thanks. No, she'll continue to freeze her azz.
Dude florida? Good for you! I'm gonna call you next weekend I need the full report. So stoked for you man!
thanks.

The building on the right is kind of a man cave/bar area. Those rectangle openings swing up, and hang off of chains and go into the U shaped bar. There's a stone fireplace in there too.
