Congratulations on the new boat Bret. You now own the best handling rear engine boat you can get. It has a wonderful hull and does every wake job quite well.

rallyart made a post in this thread: 2009 Sanger V215 Trim Tab
I got mine from Sanger. It's a bit of a pain to install the screws as the hull is not completely flat where the tab installed and the fiberglass is really tough there. Just do not make the holes for the screws too small. If you do you will brea...

rallyart made a post in this thread: Electrical or Fuel issue?
You can't be sure that it's something the shop did, even if the timing might indicate that. However, things to look for are: plug wires or plugs as they were out for the compression test; filter at the carb entry or junk on the float needle as th...

rallyart made a post in this thread: Rant... Is it so much to ask?
Yes, it is too much to ask for a common fluid. You can run ATF in everything and you actually will have more power. Unfortunately the engine will die about 10X quicker and V-drive gears will spall and get really loud in a short time. People onl...

rallyart made a post in this thread: Anyone try an air chair? (ACL)
My wife loves her AirChair and she has knees that hurt but she just floats along at 15 mph. Never hurts anything. The kids and I ride it often and no one has stressed a knee. We've been bend backward a few times. Flushed our sinuses (especiall...
