    Thanks! This build is more of a custom machine than a restoration. Aside from the bare hull, there is very little that is original to the ski.

    I'm impressed! REALLY impressed! That looks beautiful, and when you look at before and after, and how quickly you did it, especially with the hassle of overseas shipping, I'm at a loss for words.

    Thanks Steve, it’s been a fun project. I’m reaching the point where I just need to start putting it back together and finishing the project before I end up with a stroker crank and big bore kit lol. I’m happy with a solid 65mph ski. Will probably do a ride plate though for handling and consistency. Have my sights set on an R&D plate

    More progress made today. Started reinstalling electronics. Rebuilt through-hull bearing carrier, made a new seal for the steering plate, completed fuel tank install with sending unit and pump and trial fit the panels for an idea of the end product.

    Just picked up an R&D rideplate with reverse brackets. It’s made for the stock grate and should work well with my worx grate. Sponsons should be the last thing now. TBM has a new set out for the sxr I’m looking into

    Was able to make some more progress today. Installed new reverse and steering cable assemblies and through hull fittings. Installed the steering plates and reverse lever assembly both of which I completely rebuilt previously. Been rethinking the factory sealing system as well and adding sealant around all fittings that go through the hull.

    Consider "back-filling" the entire cable(s) with grease... i.e. using a small length of scrap hose, hose clamps, and a typical grease gun, "adapt" the gun nozzle to one end of the cable sheath (temporarily remove the factory seal 1st). Now, grease alone is way way too thick to force in, so I like to mix a slurry of marine grease and synthetic marine motor oil, as to thin it out some. Now simply pump that slurry into one end of the cable until it oozes out the opposite end. Replace the factory seal - done.

    This has THREE benefits ... a) obviously lubes the cable - forever, b) most important, removes the air-space within the cable - aka sea water will have a harder time getting inside when the grease is already occupying all the available space, c) say water did get inside, the film provides an added barrier of corrosion protection. I ride 100% salt - its what I do ... well, that and retro fit small anodes to the rideplate and pump body.
