Engine coupler out of round cant align drive HELP

Thu, 05/26/2016 - 23:44
I am working on my 28 Daytona. I greased the drive coupler hoping it would quite a noise back there. I had replaced the gimbal last year so I figured it was ok. It wasn't I had to replace the gimbal bearing then when I went to align it I could not get the tool to go in without sticking. After two days of messing with it I had my girl turn the motor over while I had a bar that fit snugly into the splines installed. sure enough it wobbled big time. Its as if the splines in the coupler are no longer centered. Did I over grease it and ruin it? Is this fixable? Can I get a long bar and nudge it back straight? Should I pull one of the zerks out and let the grease out? Maybe I over greased it. Any Ideas. Bravo XR and a blown 540

I have a Dolphin for a flat

Thu, 05/26/2016 - 19:52
Took the boat out for the second time, and started to give it a little more kick this time. I let the lock go all the way on the plate to see what it would do. I gave it a little gas and she turned into a dolphin. I push down the plat and she flattens out. I don't know what prop or gears at this time. The motor was moved forward a little by the previous owner. 36" from stern to back of motor. single carb 468 a little over stock.

Any help would be welcomed

Lake Powell Bullfrog Marina

Thu, 05/26/2016 - 17:36
Has anyone on here ever rented a houseboat from Bullfrog? I'm looking for suggestions for places to park the houseboat on that end of the lake. Preferably within 10 to 15 miles of the marina. We have been out of Wahweap before and this is our first trip to this end of the lake.

[Event] Kamloops Convention 6/23-26/16

Thu, 05/26/2016 - 17:23
This is it Gentlemen!! The weekend after Cat Attack! Cut loose for a weekend at camp Kamloops. Considered by many to be "Hallowed" ground steeped in rich family tradition, Kamloops is celebrating it's 65th year. We are a private organization/campground however membership is open to everyone. This is the one weekend a year where Kamloops is turned from a family atmosphere to a huge weekend party, known as the "Convention"(Sorry Lady's, this is a men only weekend, and for many of us our only chance to get away from you all year! Hahaha) The past two years Convention has been cancelled due to the low water level, this has only happened one other time in 1976. El Nino has served us well and we are back in business!

The camp is located on the Mc Cloud arm of Shasta Lake and is not accessible by car. You will need to either have a boat available or call when you are close and either the barge, or I or one of the other infamous "Black Shirts" will come pick you up for a ride across the lake. Once in camp, we have a private dock, showers, flush toilets, electricity and many other amenities you might not expect from a "boat in" campground.

The pick up spot is the Hirz Bay boat ramp, which is off of Gilman Rd, which intersects with Hwy5.

Provided is an open bar 24-7(Since it's a private party, ABC laws don't pertain) and all the food you can eat.

There is a fishing derby every day, a horseshoe tournament, poker games, a driving range, the world famous "Fingerling Olympics" and a lake with 365 miles of shoreline to play on. If you have a boat bring it! If not, our private cove and dock offers a great opportunity to float around, swim and fish.

What you need to bring:

-Sleeping Bag
-Money for registration
-And thick skin :stir:

I'll be leaving Thursday morning and coming home Sunday. It costs $260 which includes 7 meals a day and an open bar 24-7 for three to four days depending on when you come up. If anyone is interested feel free to call me, 925-360-6711, text me or leave a VM.

P1 boat racing Lake Toho St Cloud Florida Blogg

P-1 Boat Racing on East Lake Toho St CLoud


P-1 Boat Racing on East Lake Tohopekaliga St. Cloud Florida 2016
This past weekend May 21, 2016 I was looking for a boat ramp to get into Lake Tohopekaliga knowing that the ramp on St. Cloud side would be closed due to the P-1 Boat racing. I found two other ramps and made my choice to go to one off the 417 and Boggy Creek Road. Little did I know I would find an awesome place to spend some quality time in the future the cabins were nice; boat ramp could not ask for any better, it has a restaurant, swimming pool, plus fishing for those that like to fish oh and if you wanted air boat rides also. At the end of the day found myself watching big air craft coming in for landing across the lake heading toward Orlando International Airport but that was not what I was there for. Boat racing was my target and I got so much more. The name of the place I’m talking about is Boggy Creek Resorts and Rv park address is 3705 Big Bass Road Kissimmee Florida 34744 Phone 407-348-2040 .

What I came for is to watch and take photos of the P-1 Boat racing in action so I put my boat in Boggy Creek Resort & Rv park there is a $5 ramp fee then headed across Lake Tohopekaliga to the St Cloud part of the lake making sure I got there early to take pictures of these awesome boats. The P-1 boats are like no other race boat that you see racing. The P-1 boats are made to race one day and take family and friends out the next thanks to a removable hatch on the rear of boat behind the two racing seat up front. The P-1 boats are the stock car racing of boats, motors are the stock Evinrude 250 hp E-tech, propellers are Mercury Racing 4 blade 26 pitch, Boats 28 foot panther here is the site for more information I watched the video pretty interesting no other boat out there like it. The P-1 speed is about 65 mile per hour not bad for 28 foot boat with a stock 250 hp outboard motor. There was lots of racing action with a little rubbing and bumping going on just like stock cars one boat spun out. Now Geico has gotten the bug and is doing pretty well but lots of competition since all boat pretty much equal.
The next P-1 boat race is in Jacksonville Florida on Saturday June 4, 2016, then on to Sarasota, Florida on Saturday July 2, 2016 plus the Super Boat will also be out there for a double header.
Next time you’re looking for some adventure in boating check out the P-1 boat racing action or take a trip to the Boggy Creek Resort and RV Park both are exciting.
