View Full Version : Delta Get Together with the Performance Boats peeps, Oct 13

10-13-2013, 10:42 PM
So I was invited out with the v-drive guys to the Delta today. Was a great turnout with 39 boats showing up. Turns out mine wasn't the only jet there as there was a really nice Keaton (this time the guys that owned it were very friendly and not at all stuck up), and some awesome hardware. One boat showed up with a twin turbo set up and ran 120mph...and it was a daycruiser! Had a rough start this morning as it snowed as I was traveling over the summit out of tahoe. Got to meet some really cool people and recruited a few to VJB!
This morning:

looks like a fun cruise! I like doing the 20 or 30 mile delta lunch runs!

only hiccup I had was starting the boat too close to the dock and my skags on the intake grate caught some of that tube grass and it acted like carpet and covered the whole intake. had to dive down in the water and pull it off and out of the grate. Pulled the inspection cover and luckily none got in the pump. After that, had a great time, boat ran 51mph up river (against the current/wind)...best its done in years!
