    Re: XL760 Seized?

    I would pull the plugs and free spin the engine by hand before anything else if you're hearing a clinking sound. I wouldn't crank it with the starter. There may be something bouncing around, like a...

    Re: Wetjet 61x Exhaust

    Will this work in a square nose with a 760? I have been looking for something that is a little rough, I sure hate to grind away on a nice manifold to get the ports to match on a 760.

    Re: Hull paint

    Two part polyurethane paints like Awlgrip and Interlux Perfection are the best boating paints you can get. I did my superjet with less than a quart of Interlux Perfection. A quart is only about $80...

    Re: Need advice on superjet hull I bought

    For paint you want to spray polyurethane paint, it's going to be expensive but it will last if you prep it properly. Interlux perfection, awlgrip, something like that.

    Re: 1995 SXI Should I buy?

    750 SXI is a fun boat, but that thing is in rough shape. I don't know about Florida prices, but I wouldn't pay more than 1250 for that thing in its current form.
