    X2 waterbox and snb 44

    I have not run this exact configuration but consider a SJ waterbox with a B1 outlet between the battery and the carbs. I think the stock boxes lack a high point except the header elbow and is the reason so many of us have running issues (water ingestion and weak bottom end). I did run a SJ box...

    Anyone using a flatbed trailer? (Salt)

    Aluminum trailers are also probably square tubing and have rubber caps on the end of the tubes while galvanized trailers are often I-beam design. The Aluminum trailer frames probably hold a lot air themselves.

    Anyone using a flatbed trailer? (Salt)

    Exactly. Can you post a picture of what you come up with? I agree, but I haven't seen any stand up skis on flat beds. I wasn't sure if there was some reason I might be missing other than cost.

    Anyone using a flatbed trailer? (Salt)

    I have a galvanized jet ski trailer. Standard dual setup for 3 stand ups (2 and a B1). I was thinking about going to a flatbed utility style. But it would see salt. I can't see a reason why it would be an issue to use a flat bed aluminum trailer? Might need to replace the axle with a galvanized...

    650/X-2 X2 restore.

    So is the problem you have the wrong cable or the right cable installed wrong?

    650/X-2 X2 restore.

    Is it possible you have the wrong cable or it is not symmetric? It's possible they put in a steering cable instead of a trim cable?

    Bondrail underside tips and tricks???

    I do 3D print tools for stuff like that. Not sure if you have ever considered it, but it's nicer than wood. You can easily print a custom radius or a complexed curve. I used Fusion 360 and a XYZ Davinci Pro 1.0 printer.

    Bondrail underside tips and tricks???

    I use carbide burrs from Fastenal on a 1/4" die grinder to get the meat. I have a 3/8" straight bur and one that kind of looks like a pine cone. They are like $50 each, but they never get dull or change shape if using strictly on fiberglass. I have an extended straight and a right angle grinder...

    Bondrail underside tips and tricks???

    Anyone have any tips or tricks they are using to work the underside of the bond rail? My B1 had bond rail damage which I have repaired. Doing the finishing work. It's pretty difficult to get in there with putty knives or for sanding. Also curious if anyone has any tips for when they spray primer...

    Here it is, the wax header pipe

    Not to derail, but those molds on Ebay are cool to see. I have always wondered how a jacketed pipe is casted. I'll be honest, I still don't get it. Is something in the jacket/cooling space that is removed after the casting? I've always been curious.

    Superjet foam Problem

    Thanks for the reply. I wonder if it could be dried more efficiently by using the factory pour holes to push some air and putting the entire boat on somewhere with a dehumidifier. Or perhaps some use of Damp Rid.

    Superjet foam Problem

    One thing I have not once seen in a waterlogged foam thread is the before and after weights. The composite added to repair what was done by cutting out the tray is not weightless. Has anyone done a before an after comparison of weights? I can't imagine there are significant benefits to replacing...

    JBL Xtreme 2 Bluetooth Speaker

    The Xtreme 3 is $350. The Xtreme 2 is $190. It is bigger than what a lot of people use for portables but this thing has exceptional sound quality. They actually reduce the wattage on battery for the advertised battery life, so it sounds even better when plugged in, because it uses the full...
