    Thanks to Freestyle Dave, all the paint work on the 2015 Dells raffle SJ is now complete and looks fantastic. I'll picking her up before Christmas and the assembly will begin .

    Re: 2015 Dells Raffle Ski Discussion Thread - ANOTHER SUPER JET???

    Off the top of my head, here is the build list, so far:
    61x 701 motor with fresh crank seals, rebuilt carb and timing bump
    Stock stainless blaster prop
    Blowsion pole spring
    Blowsion limiting rope
    Blowsion 4 degree h-bars
    Pro-watercraft urethane front sponsons (tubbies)
    ODI grips
    Aluminum throttle
    Rhaas motor mounts
    Fox River PWC indestructible under tank and waterbox pad
    Hull reinforcement by*Joe Bohaczek
    Some kind of graphics by Brad Bohat from 2 Wicked Designs
    Paint by*Freestyle Dayvid Venema
    Blacktip mat kit, black diamond plate
    Tray underpadding from Watcon / RCJS, among many other parts
    Brand new pole bushings installed via the Fox River PWC tricks that eliminate future slop due to the holes in the pole getting egged out

    I think that's everything, but I may be forgetting a thing or two. I truly hope this is another raffle ski that anyone would be happy to win and proud to own.


    Disclaimer/special offer: If the raffle ski winner is someone who rides aggressively enough to break stock handlepoles, I will gladly buy this handlepole back before they snap it. I will gladly remove it and install whatever aftermarket pole they supply. Please spread the word.

    Here is a "before" pic of some of the parts that were in this SJ when I purchased it 1 year ago. The whole bilge looked about the same, and the before pics of the hull posted earlier in this thread really don't show how bad it really looked. The previous owner clearly owned too much 60grit sandpaper, too many paint brushes, and too much crappy gloss blue paint. The transformation that freestyle dave pulled off on the cosmetics here still hasn't sunken in fully for me yet - even after 4 straight days of putzing with the assembly of this SJ.
