Rebuilding a 2008 to sell
« on: October 25, 2018, 09:08:09 AM »
Am finally getting started on this boat. Will be converting it to EX21 w/ high compression head, water cooled exhaust, 200w charging system, remote grease hull bearing, steering relocation, aluminum wear ring, pump rebuild, clutch, windshield, and transom/pump mount braced and reinforced to stop the issue with cracking that these had. The reinforcement is done, pics below. Stay tuned for updates to follow my progress on this build.  \./8

Looks Great Tom! It's gonna be a nice boat! Does the plate affect the yoke slip on the spline enough to matter?

Thanks, somebody will enjoy it for sure. The plate adds 1/16" and has no effect on the spline union to make a difference.  \./8

Cool, do you offer that plate for sale or is each year boat unique?

Every boat is a little different, so I've been making them to fit each one that I've had here. Only applies to the 2008-2012 hulls for those who don't know. The plate is only part of this process and alone will not fix or stop anything from cracking.

Can you say that all Hull's are bad in the year models suggested?

Your new conversion looks and sounds familiar. Working out great on the two you did for us. I'm sure someone will appreciate the upgrades.

Yes, all 08-12 models will crack. Do a search here for "crack" and you will find multiple posts with all the details of that situation.

Yup, I did the same crack repair/reinforcement on both of yours. Glad they are doing well for you.  \./8

 Mine haven't cracked , I think it's unfair to say all will crack! You can't predict failure on all Hull's, that's unreal and I feel you are misspoken. I understand that the potential is possible but I completely disagree that all Hull's will crack.
Do a survey on owners with the Hull's in consideration. There are enough out there.

Glad to hear that your's is intact still. But it's a matter of design, they ALL will crack eventually unless they are stored in a barn and not used. That is not being unfair, it is being realistic. I understand why the cracks happen, and every single hull of that design that is used normally/regularly will eventually have this problem, it isn't a question of "if", but "when". That might take another year, or ten, but it WILL happen without doubt. There are also plenty of owners out there who would say theirs isn't cracked because they don't know what to look for. I've dealt with several people who swore their boat didn't have any cracks, only to find them in exactly the places I told them to look. Just be glad that when that time comes for you, I've got the cure. hehe  \./8

Pump mount and intake tunnel repair and reinforcement has been completed and I've started working on the engine. EX17 head installed and the mounting feet adjusted. Things should start coming along a little faster now.  \./8

Looking Good! Fun watching it come together. Any lefties ever ask you to put the steering on the other side?

Thanks. I've talked to a couple people who mentioned they were left handed and how it would be nice, but nobody has asked me to do that for them. Steering cable would probably need to be shorter, throttle cable would have to be changed too.

Thought I would have preferred mine on the left side since I'm left-handed, but have gotten used to it on the right side. As I get older, I'm getting more and more ambidextrous. Lol
