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.

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.
