Re: Should this boat run dry.

I have a 14' DB like SteveReid, but I do have the 383 and 2.38 box. I went to freedom ride this weekend and first time to try the ridge. I was nervous because I have never done it, but my boat went up to the top like butter. I got some cool pics for the first time.

Re: BBC to LS3 swap motor mount

I got a question, Do you prefer the softer rubber motor mounts that eat up some of the engine vibration, or the polyurethane hare plastic mounts like daystar? I currently have the hard plastic mounts and notice al the engine vibrations, I was wondering if I go to the softer rubber ones will it help?

Re: Ballistics gearbox question

I get little vibration on mine too. What is the best way to check the pitch angle on the prop? I have a cheap husky digital level from Home Depot. Is there a better way?

Re: CM gearbox guys, what are you spinning your NGR's?

I have a 14x8 2014 DB hull with a 383 and 2.38 Ox and 3 blade NGR. Im set right at the 2 mark. I can only spin 5100 RPMS WOT. Im wondering if 200 RPMS on my engine by taking a little pitch out would give better push on dry ground when I open her up?

I have never been down there, coming from palm beach. Myself and another boat want to check it out. Anybody gonna ride on Friday? or is everyone going on Saturday? I would like to meet up with an experienced boater there so they can show us around. I would like to go Friday if possible.
