Took my new (to me) Bu out yesterday for the first time...all I can say is wow! I made the right choice. I'm very impressed with how solid everything feels. The only issue I noticed was too much water leaking in at the drive shaft, at only 197 hrs. i'm hoping I can just do an adjustment on that.

My mom's 64th birthday was yesterday and I brought her along for the maiden voyage. She said it was the best birthday she's had. It was 85 degrees and sunny.

I talked one of my friends to come out after work, so we were able to do some riding too. Can't wait for the rest of the summer!

Didn't take many pics...and I want to get some in cleaner water LOL

Tighten the nut for the drive shaft packing until it is a slow drip.

Watch the seal sometimes they will swell and slow the drip after getting back into the water. Long lay ups cause them to dry. Evin if it does not slow its not hard to tighten or replace if needed. :thumbup:

Congrats on the the new ride! Can you fly out the NW with some of that good weather? I am pretty sure we can take up a collection and buy a round trip ticket. :biggrin:

Congrats. The weather sure has been awesome in the Midwest. Is the color scheme simply white hull with a black stripe along the rub rail?

Close, the stripe is blue. The blue swooshes down towards the back.
