Since we bought this boat last week, I have made a couple of trips to Cape May to work on the boat. My Wife had to go out of town so the Tag A Long trailer has been my pick up truck! Loaded her down pretty heavy this time. :shock:

13' folding extension ladder, 3 - 100' contractor grade garden hoses, 2 - 100' extension cords, loaded tool box, complete socket kit, circular saw, 3/8" drill, battery operated drill, portable work light, 1 canvas tarp, 2 poly tarps, radio, new 6 volt group 1 battery, and 1 battery charger. When I first headed off with the bike, the trailer tugged back at me for the first time. The Slug sure got a workout!

The knee is still an issue. I can ride as long as I do not attempt to push backwards on my right side. The ride (89 miles one way) was not as comfy as I am used to. Tough getting a good position for my leg without twisting. The highway boards that are mounted outside of my crash bars are in the way now. There is no chance of using them without hurting my knee (they will be up for sale if interested.)

Looks like I will be adding some ATF to the tank of this old girl! The carb needs a cleaning. It is a real cool updraft side mounted carb. Take a listen:

Now THAT'S a boat and one I can appreciate. But, I can relate to hearing it run. My son recently traded into an Eliminator speedboat (1981) with a fresh 454 and Berklet jet drive. It had issues, electrical/steering/carburetor. It is not one I would enjoy, but it sure is his style. I've been working with him for over a month getting it sorted.

We did on Saturday. Fifteen gallons of gas in less than two hours:

15 gallons in two hours is only 7.5 gallons per hour. Not bad for a high speed boat (if you afford the gas). Our ferry burned 6 gallons per hour of diesel carrying 400 people at a time. Of course, we were only making 8-10 knots. Speed requires horsepower which requires lots of fuel (gas or diesel).

This little 24' boat only has 105 hp and is expected to burn 4 gallons per hour at speed (12 knots). Here is a good look at one of these engines out of a classic Chris Craft after rebuilding. They are 6 cylinder, inline, flathead engines with a 6 volt electrical system, side mount updraft carb, generator (top) and starter below:

I would imagine that straight six is good in boat applications for the same reason as it is in autos - torque. Big, long crank and lots of rotating mass.
