    Default OK here goes - 89' Supra Comp Floor Resto

    Was going to fix a few small things and found 1-eng mount bolt loose so here goes. Replaced the floor top 5-6 years ago..time for the stringers now. Everything is still dry and not to bad so just going to do a cap on resto job. May as well tackle auto ballast system, extending my sundeck another 3" for another 100 xtra lbs of ballast and that DIY wedge while Im at it, Maple has me jacked up for it. Jet

    So thats what dry foam looks like?? lol. Everything is nice and dry and still solid but I had one spot under my passenger seat that was soft, but I just decided Its time to do the whole thing. I wanted to do a drop box for the battery under the drivers seat to offset the driver weight..but my big as bass fishing boat battery is to tall. Where are yalls batteries at? mine is forward on the diver wall in my nose. But Im ready to move them somewhere? Jet

    anybody know where I can get a new or used pylon? I had a beer coozy over the bottom of the pylon for the last 6 years, I guess it didnt like corona?

    Geez, Andrew I should just bring my boat down there and we'll tag team them. Along with everything else this spring I'm dying to create a new cut out behind the observer for my batteries to offset driver weight, that and the stereo's getting redone so some amp weight over there won't hurt either.
    Right now they're in front of the helm and it's too much weight on the driver's side for sure, she's leans something fierce.....
    My family's just down the road form St. Mark's Boys School in North Dallas is that close enough?, I'm on my way.....

    Talking

    Come on down..but theres no room in my garage. lol. Im going to do all kinds of customizing this time. My head is spinning right now. Custom made gunnels with storage and 3 or 4 drink holders on each side with leds and handles..a new custom formed fiber glass dash with built in stereo, new gauges and GPS screen. Battery box w/2-batts and pergo switch by the driver, upgraded steering wheel. Auto ballast system, 1000lbs plus the Wedge!! OH YEAHHH!! Still working on my diy flat bimini top..and on and on. 2nd..Iam also having probs with one side of my wake it just went away one day. found out at the boat show that I have to much cup built into the prop. This factory guy said that Its gripping so much that Its tilting my boat to the drivers side and washing out the other side of the wake, so Im going to have as much cup taken out as I can. Add that to the list.

    Good luck bud! You've gone off the deep end now! Make sure you out-do knox for most cutout cupholders! jk jk

    Yes, very interesting?? If you think about it aliot of BIG 22'-24' boats with 2000lb plus ballast are using this prop. then you have my lil boat using the same one..he says Its just gripping the water to much and torquing the boat which changes my wake. now I need less cup and more weight on passinger side. I was wondering why my toeside wake went away??

    that's amazing that your foam is dry. have you tried digging down to the hull in the deepest part forward of the engine? would be a shame to slap a new floor on if there's moisture trapped in there.

    the ski poles are heavy mo-fo's. shipping is out of the question...i think you'd be better off getting another coozie

    sunken batteries...not enough room on saltares either. there really isn't that much room under the floors in these boats. my batteries are on the spotter side but sub, amps, and my fat butt on the driver side are too much.

    good luck...can't wait to see how this ends up.
