New toy!

Whatever you want to discuss

New toy!

Postby chadbragg » Sun Mar 12, 2017 8:24 am

Got the itch to try something different this year! I'm pushing 40yo and have owned Atleast 1 boat at all times since I was 14yo. But never a ski boat, actually never even considered one until a couple weeks ago.

Well I found this one on one of the fb trade sites and made a deal on it. It's a 2004 18' Tahoe Q3 with a 4.3 inboard/outboard. The engine wasn't winterized year before last and froze and busted. Gonna start pulling the engine this week and see how bad it is. Interior is in pretty good shape, just needs a good cleaning and buffing! Hope we are on the water as soon as its warm enough!

Not at all. Gotta get it pulled and see how bad it is. May be getting a complete engine.

You know you can easily get 300+ horsepower out of that engine with a proper build :2TU: :2TU:

I plan to just go stock with it. It'll just be me and the family crusing the lake.

Though I have tried it both ways, I have found it to be much more convenient to insert the plug BEFORE disembarking from the boat ramp.
