    Sweet. Kawi Dave's ski needs help. At least he starts this one with the start stop switch and not touching wires outside of the ski.

    Needs help is a nice way to put it, lol.

    Here comes the pictures and reports from today's primary tear down.

    Most of the tear down is done. This is a great example of why you really need to just pull everything apart and start over sometimes, if you want t to get it right.....if you'd rather spend your time riding in front of the beach versus parked on the beach with your hood off and getting a tan on the back of your neck.

    Waterbox and tank are out...missing 3 of the 4 straps that secure them. Check out the ground cable. It has seen better days.

    This ski has gotten hot a time or two. I have a plan to stop that.

    Not sure if you can see the discoloration on the chamber.

    Steering cable.
    This is exactly why I'm so picky about routing your sh1t so it doesn't get rubbed and destroyed...or sleeve/pad in a way that actually will hold up.

    Yeah, the new ground cable won't have any red wires "attached" to it.

    Poster child examples of why my Ultimate Underpadding is wise and hoping and praying for glued in pads to work is not. Looks like the pads that were under the gas tank wound up here.

    Umm, yeah...I'm going to be drilling and adding a thru tube in this hull and tapping the pump, so it will have actual dual cooling, as this motor needs it.
