12/21/2013      Beach Anchoring Suggestions...
0.0/5 0 Votes
    I use a SandSpike from the bow of my Sugar Sand Tango Xtreme to the sand along with the stern anchor. The boat is so light, that the SandSpike repeatedly dislodges. Can anyone offer a suggestion so I can relax without constantly wedging the thing back in the sand? Do I need two SandSpikes? Should the rode be longer? Help!

8/12/2012      Seadoo trouble.
0.0/5 0 Votes
    Ok I have a 97 seadoo challenger 1800 with twin rotax 787 110 hp engines. 2 weeks ago I took it out and couldnt get it up on plane. Ass end seemed to be sitting low. Turned out my head exhaust pipe had a crack in it and I was gushing water into engine bay. So I took it out and had it welded and I put it back in. I also cleaned my raves which I found that neither one had o rings which I put new ones on and the one closest to the tail didn't have threads in the rubber grommet to screw into the valve. I tried it anyway. I took it out yesterday and it ran great except that wot used to read 7000 rpms and I was only getting about 6600 out of that motor. Still getting 7000 out of other motor and I was only getting 52 mph and I always got right around 60 unless water was real rough. All of a sudden like 6 hrs into running the motor started to jump around on the tack between 5000 and 3500rpms and it started making all kinds of sounds from exhaust and it was running rough. I shut it down and couldn't get it started again. It even sounds different when cranking like a deeper tone. I got it started today but it idles at like 1000 rpms and they both idle at around 2000 rpms I dunno if it can even be raves or worse
