Flipping boat to apply slick bottom

Post by Keeth1123 »

Anyone flipping their boat on the side to put new slick on, or is everyone taking all the stuff out? Finally seeing some wear on the bottom. Don’t run much dry. It’s a car motor after all :toothy7: :stirpot:

While I hope you get some good advice....

I just can't take it...too much car motor bashing lately!

Nothing wrong with this 122 cubic inch car motor! :lol:

Yea we have blocked up the transom a ft or so and raised the bow as high as we could with the setup and sprayed a couple.. Obviously the part down towards the transom you’ll have to lay down to access.
