    '85 550 JS Project

    My wife and I have been fighting over which to buy first(I won't have more than 1 vehicle financed at a time). She wanted a bigger camper(we had a 28' bh) while I wanted a boat(23'+ surf boat).
    She won and we ended up with a '17 Rockwood 8326.........
    Last yr, I bought a '93 VXR. It's super fun, but since I didn't get to buy a boat, I decided we each needed one. I have always wanted a standup!
    I immediately found one on FB, but the seller took too long(about an hr) to respond to my PM. By that time, I'd found another pair('96 wave blaster and a '97 xp) for a great price. Before the day was over, I'd bought all of them........

    I'm most excited about the '85 550JS. Super rough looking but runs.
    It ran on trailer, but I wanted to make sure it ran well in water before I put any time into it. So over spring break, I finally got to take her out.
    Starts right up and runs great. I think the carb needs some adjustment as it falls on its face if you hold it WOT for more than 3-4 secs. below 3/4 throttle, it runs great. It's got some aftermarket parts on it which included Pro Taper bars and grips, so that's why I opted for those stickers. I think it came out pretty good for a single weekend of work. best part is, I've only got $400 in it now! Bad part is, I got excited last night and bought another pair.......
