okay, parts should be in on Friday, I checked out the reed cs/chambers to double for debri from the gasket (I removed 1 pc from that carb, it was too big to get into reed opening)

Looks good now, 1 picture each chamber (I took 4 pictures so they are actually different ones) :mrgreen:

I found time to button everything up yesterday, 4 pumps on bulb, quick bleed of start solinoid, hit key and instant idle :P nice crisp throttle...reminded me of 35 years ago and racing dirt bikes :mrgreen:
Plan to button a few things up, and after church put her on the water for a shake down cruise (im charging 2 batteries and will make a quick ghetto mount for trolling motor. Just in case)
I will report back later...

I'm interested in the decking on your boat. It appears to be composite boards? Is your pontoon underskinned? Do you get any water between them while cruising along? Just curious, my uncles has been stripped down and we have looked at numerous decking alternatives. We would consider this as well.

Not under skinned and no water up through it, we have only been out one time for about 2 hrs of cruising at 17 knots (per gps on navionics android app)
Almost 20 mph
It is basic composite deck boards from Lowes

Congrats on getting wet! We were able to get Loretta Jane in the water this weekend, too. Beautiful weekend here. Had a great ride Saturday - short, about an hour. And a half day load of fun Sunday. :alright :nana
Like you, I still have 6 or 8 things to finish up. But, boy! Being wet sure was fun!
