    That can be caused by a cracked block or bad head gasket. But, it can also happen on a perfect engine if you only run it for short periods without letting it fully warm up. Condensation builds and...

    Interesting...on the later boats they mounted the knock sensor to the drain plugs! Not the way I would have done it, for obvious reasons. I bet after 15 years those boats have run many seasons with...

    Hey David,

    If you are looking for wake, I would hold out for a wake boat. The hull shape on a ski boat is made to reduce wake. You can increase the wake with sacs, but it will never be anything...
