  • "I do agree with your thinking on the screen on the end of the pick up and almost removed it during the rebuild. The rubber hose that is used to connect it was hard to source it had to be rated for fuel submerge." Also needing to replace the rubber hose. Were did you find 1/2" J30r10 submersible hose? I have the exact same boat so when you finish and want to start on another just let me know [email protected]

    • I found (Gates #27006) J30r7 at a local O,REILLY Auto Parts they have it in stock cost $3.29 a foot it is made of Nitrile rubber in side and out and should hold up submerged fuel. The clamps need to be a little larger also the new hose is a little larger on the outside.
      It would have been nice to find some J30r10 this size but I do not think they make it in 1/2"

                      • Nice boat but what have you worked on lately?

                        Absolutely kidding of course. The journey you've documented restoring this boat has been more over the top than any other I've personally seen. That said most people I know that have completed similar projects such as this don't sit still long. Any plans for a follow up or are you good for the foreseeable future?

ID:	2705742 I have also done a total restoration on inside of my lake house and work shop behind it at the same time. The house is finished ,The 94 Protour 190 finished and I just need to paint the trim in the work shop. I also have a 2013 X25 to take care of and I am getting ready to start the restoration on a 1987 K5 blazer that I have. Some time this summer I will do the trailer on the 190.
                          I am planning on taking the 190 out some this weekend and will take some on the water pictures of it and post then soon.

                                Hi Bret
                                I have a little over six hours running time on the engine now the rings look like they have broken in just right the oil consumption is near 0. So I decided to go for a full power run for a short distance and see what she will do. Both GPS speedometers showed 48.2 mph and the engine was running as smooth as silk.
                                Next time out we will hook a ski rope to her I think she is ready to tow.
