    Since I hooked up the fuel lines, I figured I'd fire it up and let it suck some fuel through the lines. Thru hull gets delivered Friday so the exhaust Is just dumping into the rear of the ski for now. I also had coated the sleeves and rod bearings with some oil so it's a little smoky but sounds pretty sweet. Sanded the top deck today and will be working on paint tomorrow and Thursday. Impeller & thru hull come in Friday so hoping for a watertest this weekend

    Got the top deck cleaned up, wetsanded and primed this afternoon. I didn't like the way the hood came out the first time so I sanded it back down and started over. This time, I got a friend with a paint booth and professional paint guns to do the spraying. This is after two coats of primer. He also talked me into going with a two stage paint for the top deck so it will have more shine to it. Should be able to sand then put on some coats of black tomorrow.

    Ran about 8 gallons through it between Saturday and Sunday before it had a rod fail and part of it blew a hole through the bottom of the cases. Showed 57mph on my phone GPS which reads 3mph slower than a Garmin handheld so anywhere between 57-60mph which I thought was good for the first outing. This thing ripped and sounded awesome. Video doesn't do it justice. I already have another spare crank and engine cases but will probably wait until mid October to mess with it.

    Update

    Figured I'd give an update. Most of the ski has been painted for a while but had to repaint the hood and I just picked it up from my friends paint booth yesterday. Sent my seat to Jet Trim to have the seat shaved and covered and had them make some traction mats for it too. Super happy with the work from Jet Trim. Pieced everything together to see how it looked and it is exactly what I wanted. Can't wait to see the IPD Graphics on it for the final touch. The triple kawi cylinders were bored by JetManiac and I still need to send in my crank to him for that to be exchanged before reassembling the engine. Anyways, here's some pics of where it stands for now. Come a long ways from when I brought it home!

    Got most of the parts to complete this but still waiting on a couple of things like the crank and some hull extensions. Once I get the crank in, it shouldn't be too long before I have it back on the water. Cylinders went from 80mm to 82mm so it will be an 1125cc now and I got the 82mm domes to match. Using the 12v solas pump & jet dynamics intake grate
