[Question] Speed coating on struts / rudders

Sun, 09/28/2014 - 16:44
I'm in the process of cleaning up the bottom of my Hondo GT runner and I want to add some speed coating while I'm at it. I've seen other flats with the rudder and strut coated with speed coat but the LODBRS rule book says no coatings on the strut or rudder. This boat will be used mostly at the lake with some occasional KDBA races and Wheatland so I'd like to have some sort of protection on the strut and rudder.

Buying another boat

Sun, 09/28/2014 - 15:16
I'm looking at a 1993 silhouette 28 foot deck boat to buy.

Looks clean, sounds good.

Any comments on what to look for or concerns good, bad or otherwise?

Would appreciate some advice.

I believe one of the senior members has a boat just like it.

Thanks and have a good day.

Parker prep continues....

PIRATE COVE annual 25' & under HOT BOAT SHOW.

Sat, 09/27/2014 - 18:03
I would personally like to thank all of you that attended this years event. :))THumbsUp This year seemed to bring a lot of new deals out of the wood work. Met/made a lot of new friends which is always a highlite. One stands out. Mike Kurth. Mike traveled over 14hrs to bring his Hallett long decker with a blown injected 392 Chrysler. Beautiful boat. He told me this event was on his bucket list. Glad you made it Mike. In his 70's and still getting it done. And guess what Mike Bell? I didn't paint it. And he showed up & got it wet. What's your excuse now? Temp was two degrees above what you & your boat like?:)grn:stir:

States that were representing
1. Washington
2. Idaho
3. Oklahoma
4. Texas
5. Az
6. Wisconsin
7. Illinois
8. Utah
9. Ca.
10. Nevada
11. Michigan????? No show
12. So. Carolina????? No show.
And I'm probably missing some. Bottom line, its because of all of you that we keep the boats we all grew up ALIVE!!!
THANKS again for making the show a success.:))THumbsUp

990 heads flow numbers?

Sat, 09/27/2014 - 12:42
Picked up a set of used 990 heads as mine were destroyed. They have been worked over pretty well. 2.35/1.94 stainless valves, fully ported/polished, heads shaved to 113cc combustion chambers. All work was fresh with zero miles on the heads. I've pretty much already decided on the isky 280 mega jet boat cam. Just curious on what these heads are capable of? Kind of worried they may be too big for my application. The price was right and I'm on a budget.

454 4 bolt
bored 100 over
10-1 compression
all forged bottom end
all arp hardware

high rise dual plane/750 holley/logs for now.
