    Blazer Marine Slingshot Build!

    The AoA is the same as last weekend when we ran it, Rich. The biggest exceptions being, as you mentioned, cooler temp and running with another boat. Brian and I were both in the water during these laps, the boat saw a bit more chop and loosened up significantly.

    Blazer Marine Slingshot Build!

    I might be measuring it wrong for all I know! This is essentially my first gas boat build so I'm still learning. Troy and TJ Hammons set this pipe length up for me as a starting point with their measurements. I love the way it performs so I haven't thought to change anything as yet

    Blazer Marine Slingshot Build!

    No issues with it as yet, Rich. I've been removing the motor regularly between run days and loosening the flex at the collet on the carb side, everything seems to be holding up as designed. I'm very happy with this set up! Chris, I've been running CoCr CC3 props on it. It responds well to the...

    Blazer Marine Slingshot Build!

    I'm just a beginner! This was my very first attempt at a boat build so I'm certain anyone can do it if they: 1. Set realistic goals. Give yourself a year or more, don't hold yourself to a deadline 2. Take your time 3. Invest in your project. Buy/rent/borrow whatever tools you need to do the job...

    Blazer Marine Slingshot Build!

    No, this was all me driving! Every now and then my club buddies will take photos of me driving with my camera. I set the camera up with all of settings I'd use to shoot a boat of a particular speed and color, hand the camera over and tell them to fire at will. I dig back into the images for...

    JAE 21; Strut/Ski Fit

    Finishing a (mostly built) JAE 21. This is my first outrigger equipped with a center ski, and as such I'm curious as to whether I'm setting the strut correctly above it. Strut is set at 90° from transom, ski is temporarily taped in place. If this looks correct, I'll go ahead with the install...

    Walbro 257 Carb Fuel Inlet Position

    I ran into the same thing building my slingshot, Rich. Grab a pair of pliers and twist it into place REEEALLY slow. Worked fine for me

    Finished the clear coat on my stand today. Very pleased with how well the cherry supports match the noseblocks and accents on the boat!
