Re: Anybody wet yet?

I haven't had mine out yet. Some people have around here though and were out fishing before the walleye season closed. That rarely if ever happens here where you can go boating before the season...

Re: We went boating yesterday!

Lucky guy. My boat's been stored for a month now. Lakes are close to freezup. Temps hovering around the freezing mark. Light dusting of snow on the ground.

Re: overheat alarm

I'd be pulling the tower end off to check the impellor if I were you. It might be worn and not pumping enough water. If it's not that, it could be a number of things. Good luck.

Re: Is boat traffic down where you are?

Fuel prices haven't slowed me down any. Well, maybe just a little. I really glad I didn't get a gas guzler when I bought my boat last year. I'm limiting myself to mainly boating on the lake I camp...

Re: How long can you go

Longest I've lasted on skis was about 11 1/2 seconds. Might have even been shorter but I couldn't tell as I was busy picking sand and water out of my nose.

Re: acceleration problems

Already changed the plugs and that didn't fix the problem. Ran a can of seafoam carb cleaner through it and no change. Checked all the clamps on the fuel line and no difference. Any ideas???
