    • Nitrous I have Rev 10's fixed clamps if you want to PM me your number.  Only used 2 outings before I got rid of my boat this summer.

    • what does the foot area (dont know the correct term) in front front of the drivers seat look like?  My 18 T23 has a removable panel (not solid fiberglass).  I recreated the panel and mounted a ported box on the back side of it using EPVC.  Only used 1/2", but would use 3/4" or a stiffer material if i have to do it again.

      Our 2020 trailer has 2 quick release pins on each guide pole.

      CAn you take a photo when you get a chance.  My 2019 has bolts and I really know of no way to use quick release pins... but maybe it's possible.

      Similar to wedge88 I was dropping the trailer hitch and deflating the tires a bit to get in and out of the garage for my mom's boat. If I was doing that more than twice a year I would have dropped the trailer or looked into raising the garage door.

      So, I did some investigating last night and used the fake a lake to run the boat.  I moved the ground I had found from the side of the engine to the main grounding point at the starter.  Still had noise.  Started messing around with RCAs and removed them from the WS EQ and noise was still present, although not as loud.  Removed RCAs from amps and noise went away.  Tried running an old Component Video cable (only RCAs I had long enough) from WS EQ to Amp and had a slight noise, but not near as bad.  The WS EQ is mounted under the steering wheel on the dash, to the right.  I have a big subwoofer box with false panel, so no access to the wiring behind the dash.  I pulled the small cabin speaker mounted in the small storage area that allowed me to see behind the dash and I can see all the RCAs from the WS EQ running near the power wire that I assume is for the breaker panel (larger wire, looks to be 1/0).  RCAs also pass directly under some relays.  I'm guessing this is where all the noise is coming from when engine is running.  I also think the EQ is probably mounted to close to power wire, or at least I hope, which could be why I still heard some slight noise when running old component video RCA.  

      Is there an easy way to pull the smaller dash screen to gain access behind dash?  The speaker hole is too small and too far away to be helpful.  Looking for an easy way to gain access under the dash without having to pull the custom subwoofer box below the dash.  

      Update - Took the boat apart last night and tried to run high quality RCAs from Maliview receiver to RF6000 black box, then from RF6000 black box to WS EQ, then from EQ to a Single Amp.  Could never get the high pitched noise to go away.  The only thing I can figure now is that it may be the WS EQ, although it doesn't make sense that the high pitched noise is only there when the engine is running and non-existent when the engine is off.  I did bypass the WS EQ and if I remember correctly, the noise was gone with the engine running, but I tried so many different things last night I just cannot remember.  I'm looking forward to Kdmann64 reply after he water tests the audio shops theory.

      What really stumps me is that this noise is only present with the engine running......  If it was a ground loop, you would think the noise would be present all the time.  If it was the EQ, you would think the noise would be preset all the time.  I've checked the alternator and it seems to be fine, unplugged it to make sure it was not sending amperage to the battery just in case it was the alternator, but that did not help.  Besides, the noise does not fluctuate with engine speed.

      Looking for a little more top end on our 97 Sunsetter LX.  Don't get me wrong, we have a good running 320 monsoon MPI.  540  hours. This is our family sized barefoot boat, we foot it every weekend,  slaloim ski at 30 and, anchor it in the coves in the afternoon. \
      That being said:   Acme 525, full tank of fuel and 4 souls aboard gets 45.9 mph (stargazer) at wot, engine is turning 5050 rpm. 
      One longline barefooter is good for 44.7, two longline footers 43.5,  rpms are all still right above 5000. My footing partner would like a little more top end for one foots. His height to mass ratio and shoe size are a little different than mine... he is also a very capable footer who executes aggressive wake crossings. 
      I was reading about the option to add some timing, according to some other posts on this forum,  the base timing is 10 btdc  and the computer will add up to 20 more degrees of advance.  All in at 30 degrees.  more timing should increase torque.  
      Do you know anyone who has done this? any other feedback?

      Finally got out for a ski on Saturday.  Good grief, it's already August.

      Did you figure out your issue with your boat? Mine is doing the same thing and it is driving me crazy. Any help would be great. Thanks

      Did you resolve your issue? My boat is doing the same thing. Already changed the filter and it seemed to help for a bit but to no avail. The boat still cuts out when it is hot and over 2900. Thanks for your reply.

      First, thanks for all the help.
      She started acting up again and I figured out it was loosing power to the fuel pump. 
      Changed out the fuel pump relay and problem solved.
      Thanks again.
