If that thing is what's coming we're in trouble. Even us crazy race boat guys know that the bow of a boat should be higher than the transom. Wonder how many lawsuits it will take for them to figure that out. All black gel coat too.....whew...

I wondered what that General Motors guy who designed the Pontiac Aztek was up to these days. Seemed just like yesterday they were playing with their new Star Wars toys,now they are Chief Designers.

Yeah lots of guys out there now designing boats with no clue. You wouldn't believe some of the things that have crossed my desk.....or the money spent to try something that ends up buried on the back lot.

When Larry posted the picture of the Heyday, it took me a few to figure out which end was the stern and which was the bow. Thankfully I spotted the helm wheel!

They’re selling $180k boats and they can’t part ~2500$ to fix an icon?



I don't think the problem is the $$. It's more that no department wants to claim it and therefore no dept wants to take responsibility for it and spend from their budget on it. Worse yet, the factory is so busy that they don't want to give me a 10 X 20 foot space to work on it.

My first thought is the aluminum exhaust manifolds. VERY difficult to find so if it is a manifold, restoring them would be needed.

I don't think it's the first, but it is a very early Correct Craft production one.

Wow.....Guessing maybe all they want is it sitting outside of HQ wasting away? Why take up space in the museum area for a boat that started it all. That's sad. Art...tell Bill or Greg that we'll be glad to take that old Ski Nautique off their hands for free and I'll even drive down to pick it up. Write off for them, frees up floor space, for a 200SN and I'll let them borrow it for the masters tournament if they wanna use it seeing as how I'm less than 2 hours away. It's a win win situation for everyone!

Hey, it'll look good sitting next to the very first and only Red & White Andy Mapple autographed masters edition SN.

yeah, really. The only reason they still make the 200 is some sense of obligation. Big wake barges are where its at, man. 200 will probably fade out here soon to make production room for the G32.

I guess the good news is, when surfing is banned everywhere, they can use them to haul coal up and down the mississippi.

Dang Art, we must have hit the time limit on the Interceptor marinization package - same exact thing happened to Dad's 63 this summer. We should compare block numbers - I bet they are pretty close. Interestingly enough, I also have the same issue, no one to take budget responsibility or give me space to work on it - HA!

Here's the story in brief: I had run it at home prior to leaving for the Masters. It ran "just OK". A bit rough, but I figured as usual, run a piece of sandpaper through the points and it will be fine. The day of the opening ceremony, I decided to test it before anyone else was there. It ran worse and worse over the span of maybe 10 minutes, so I decided to park it and hope it would make it through the show. I was able to nurse it through the show, but had to idle it at about 1800 to keep it running. Those in the audience that are boat smart knew that something was big-time wrong.

After the show I started pulling spark plugs and all 4 cylinders on the 1 thru 4 side had a lot of water in them.

The first thing on my list is to pull the exhaust manifold on that side and test it. After that, it could be anything from a head gasket to a hole rusted through a cylinder wall or the head, which would prompt a leakdown test. It could end up that I will be in the market for a RH rotation 292 or 312.

Pete is correct that those manifolds are nearly impossible to find, and there are no alternatives in current production.

Chris, it's a Y-Block and nothing else fits it. It would spoil its entire personality to put a current engine in it.

Sounds like you've got some digging to do. Hopefully it's a gasket or something simple to fix. Let me know if I can do anything to help.

River has dropped about 4-5 feet thus far.   Should be in great shape for this event.
