    ... I wonder if I could "tune" the fins to sing in 3 part harmony...
    ... maybe get them to sing different notes at different speeds, kinda like an audible speedo...

    So we had the boat on the lake this weekend;
    I had only removed the bolt & nut from the front fin.... guess what, a vibration/noise at various speeds. I think it was B Flat. Kinda funny, as I would decelerate from wakeboard speed (about 20 mph) it would start at around 17 mph and disappear at around 15 mph.
    By the end of today I had gotten to where I didn't even notice it anymore.

    JB Weld is made in Texas, It's gotta be good!
    Actually I was trying to figure out how I could smelt some old .30-06 brass and fill the holes with the molten metal. That's just me...

    It's funny - you day epoxy and everyone is all smiles. Say JB Weld and people run away yelling and screaming.

    That said, I have never used JB Weld because I always have some epoxy around.

    Take 'em out and fuhgeddaboudit, the holes are too small to make a performance difference. It's not worth the trouble to use JB Weld; that would take another hour you can't get back. You are the only one that will ever know they are there. Admit it: even you didn't notice them until you were on your back inspecting the keel!

    That's probably what I would do.

    Could be...
    I'm going to run it once with the empty holes just to see, then probably fill the holes with JB Weld.

    It would make sense that zincs were there if it was ever to go in the briny water. Perhaps the previous owner thought that theos bolts were better than open holes.

    It was "close-to-Texas-Louisiana"... Shreveport/Bossier City area; but granted, Louisiana none the less.

    If the boat was from Louisiana........there is NO telling.


    May have been the attachments for gator trolling ?
