  1. Congrats @Shadetreefab and thanks to @TeamGlide for supporting the DIY crowd with the giveaway and extended discount offer. Love that you include the plumbing kit to T into the raw water supply. Top notch stuff!!
  2. Sinister series amps make such a huge difference. Great install. Definitely stick with any tidbits of advice/help you get from @Wylie_Tunes. Hes on top of his game and has helped me out on multiple occasions.
  3. Awesome Thanks for the response and link formula. Seems pretty straight forward.
  4. Weird question for you guys that have done this mod... How did you do your seams?? I've seen some where they cut both pieces with and angle and overlap and others that cut them flush and butt them up. Curios to hear other experience with the seams.
  5. Just a wild guess but most MBs I've seen from this vintage got the the PSS carbon faced seal from PYI Inc. Have seen a few where people think they are toast and they just need compressed. The set screws slides up the shaft and it starts leaking. If you ever need to service it I've got some tips. I dont need a Glide seal, so good luck to all!!
  6. This is great. Thanks for listing the hinges. Very clean work on the mod.
  7. Didnt bother looking at the water temp. Everyone rode no tops or suits and we surfed until about 930. Air temp was 92 on the way up there. I will snag a pic of our shop boat, though I'm often out on other boats too. Will keep any eye out man!!
  8. Bovhica, great write up and great install. We were at lucky until 10 last night after work. The weather has been off for is and theres another cold front on the way in. Will be rolling a lime green and grey Tige r23 this summer. Come flag us down if you see us at lucky. We are mostly midweek evenings and occasionally buzz up on Sunday but wont get up there until 530-6
  9. NICE! Not even water can take that Bu down now. You have a float witch in the mix on your primary as well??
  10. Thanks for the response. Only ever been to CdA and Pend Oreille. Hayden and Priest are both on the bucket list. Still wanting to tick off Dworschak too.
  11. Shoebox, Fantastic work man. Love everything about this project. Super clean electrical too. Thanks for the write up. Just out of curiosity, the trees and hill look like PNW or maybe even NorCal. Where are you located?? Your lake looks great!!
  12. Looks factory and sounds better? Winning!! Nice work.
  13. That is fantastic. Thanks for the info on your setup. Happy and safe boating this summer!!
  14. Nice work and sweet mod. You got 99 problems but bow rise aint one Just playing obviously. I dont know much about surfing Bu's. Seems like with your sac #s and counting lead bags you are pushing 1300lbs of midship/bow weight. I have only really played with an older 23LSV with a wedge and a homemade gate(with 800s plumbed in the rears over tanks). Is this how much bow weight you need?? Just curious because you also mentioned GSA controller. Are you running GSA currently?? Suc gate?? Always like to learn from others how they like to set up their boats, and as mentioned, have minimal Malibu experience.
