    Hi Scott,
    What color white is your boat?
    Is it the metallic white or champagne?

    Thanks Scott, hope you're doing well.

    Would you take a few pics of your motor setup on your boat? You stated that you are getting 40 MPH with yours set up like it is. Mine is in the second hole from the top, but I'm getting 37 on a good day. It's at a normal top speed of about 36. Trying to squeeze all that I can out of it. BTW, mine has the express tube, too.

      You won't regret it. Let me know if I can help at all with figuring things out. I've spent a lot of time out there but with 2,000 miles of shoreline, it can be a bit daunting the first time.

      Almost all of them are from Lake Powell in southern Utah. It's a pretty amazing place!

    Intermittent trouble starting my '09 GL.  Acts like the throttle isn't in neutral and won't click, or turnover, nothing.  Battery is fully charged, I make sure it's in neutral and doesn't happen all of the time.  After a few minutes of back/forth on throttle and playing with key switch it will turn on.  Any ideas b4 I take to the shop?

    hi semperfi. remember me with the dress blues 2016 gbr250? well I'm ready for a new boat. whats the best way to approach the upgrade? do I sell my sweetheart with less than 100 hours and thousands I spent adding to her already loaded comfort or trade it in? how do I find out her worth. the boat is absolutely mint. the 150 Yamaha is more than adequate power and since her birth I added a second bimini. any advice would be greatly appreciated.

      Sorry, just saw this. Check NADA for values and possibly Craigslist. I traded, lost some potential profit but it was worth it not dealing with tire kickers for however long it would have taken to sell. As for your upgrades, depending what they are, you can probably figure a loss on those, unless the buyer really expected them. If it's possible to remove and reuse, that's what I would do.

      Hopefully he will buy a Q with a 350 on the back.  As for me I have only been on the boat once due to a family medical condition.

      So sorry to hear that. The weather has started off so bad this season. I have not boated much myself. I hope your family is all well soon.

    Hi, I am wondering about your power steering install. I have purchased a unit and am ready to install but i have noticed in the instructions it says all hoses should be longer than 6 ft. In the picture you posted it appears your are 3-4 ft. in length. I am wondering if that is the case and if so have you had any issues??

      The hoses under the helm are 3 ft and I've had no issues.

      Ok thanks. Seems to be a strange requirement but i figured you would be a good person to ask. Thank you for the quick response and all the help you've been without even knowing it. This is a great forum
