How kick ass would it be to just pop the riser off a 260 merc and plop a pair of turbos ontop of the manifolds though

buy this.

2008 22' Manitou Triple Tube Pontoon

buy $1800-$2000 bunk trailer.

keep it at d's marine, vickies place, or miller's dream marine, right in mchenry 12-15 minutes from your home for probably $1000-1500 for the whole season.

take your family, friends, and other people out for rides and summer fun all year, with a 20 minute from your door to going boating experience.

smile a lot. swim in the majestic waters of pistakee lake, drink a few beers, wave at @Yaj Yak, @PANDA, @OffshoreDrilling, @JeffsLightning,and @CobraSki03 as we all enjoy the chain. put gas in the boat that you bring from home, or pump into it at one of the many chain marinas. add some brp oil maybe 1 or 2 times a year.

at the end october, pull it out and push the button on the throttle that says "winterize"

cover the boat and park it somewhere where a grizzly bear won't hurt it with something on top of it that won't let the carpet get too snowy.

now forget you own said boat until april/may/60* outside.

go get boat, put boat back in water and tie it back up and go back to step one.

the end.

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...it?usp=sharing

maybe it makes sense to you too to read through it, but you'll get the idea. the idea is to pay the boat down much quicker than 15 years, but pay more on it through the winter, when gas isn't costing moneys.

this accelerated payment dealio would get the boat paid off in about 6 and a half years or so anyways...

hey psst @Eagle

And they asked about reflective material!

I was able to tell the MC DNR whatever guy that the requirement is 16 square inches. He was surprised I knew that.

Honestly I think my sled is 100% legal as it sits. I doubt the factory Yamaha graphics that I don't have sled are reflective. Yeah its "blacked out" but I never removed any reflective parts. It still has two on the side panels, two under the exhaust, and one on the back. They are 1x4 inches about. Is my math wrong? Isn't that 20 square inches?

Meanwhile they pull away in a 20K enclosed RZR with tracks on it. Pure revenue generation.

yeah, it's not legal technically

my stock sled with bone stock graphics didn't have enough reflective material and i got let go with a verbal warning.

no, they pull people over for not having enough reflective material and do a sniffy sniff out of their helmet.

aka never take off your helmet.
