    I think its pretty cool that the gas tank is in the floor where the motor is on an inboard. I've only sitting outboards with the gas tank behind the rear seat. Wonder if that effects planing at all, good or bad. Anyone have any imput on that.

      The outboard MC's with the tank in the floor jump right onto plane, where the rear fuel tank versions had some bow rise to overcome. Of course, this is dependent on fuel levels.

        That makes sense, and makes more room for storage if the space behind rear bench seat is accessible.

          I only had the boat out for a few minutes after i bought it..... Was having some issues with the motor... But when i opened it up from idle the nose never even came out of the water... It was pretty sweet.....

          Just to give you guys the heads up i will have pics coming soon, I am about 3/4 the way through ripping the oil injection off the boat, waiting on parts from Iboats that just came today.... Finished and mounted new motor bracket this weekend.... Seats should be here sometime this week or next... Seats are scheduled to be done this week, so i'm crossing my fingers....

            Why are you ripping out the oil injection?

                LOL nice pic....... Don't worry more pictures to come soon..... I am ripping the oil injection pump out because the late 80's early 90's motors were notorious for having the pumps go out.... When they go its too late..... You end up blowing the motor up..... I would rather just have the assurance of knowing the motor is getting oil especially when i'm going to be running it at 40+ MPH for footin......

                  I disconnected my oil pump setup all together, to know for sure that my oil's mixed I add it in before the fuel

                      You were asking lots of questions about airguides, see the support page on www.airguide.com.au for more information.

                      You can't buy airguide pickups any more so another brand which can be modified to fit the holes is the way to go.

They sent me some pics of the seats, and I thought i would post them for all to see!!!! They look GREAT! High quality marine vinyl with foam backing!!! i'm excited to get them in next weekend and go out and get some footing in!!! Hope you like them!!!

                              Hey jdubwall, If you don't mind me asking, how much did your new upholstery cost? Did you have any custom work done? It sure does look great! Thanks
