    Re: New 460 milky oil why?

    I'm still rather new here, but thought I'd add this, the marine engine guy that installed my 460 told me to start the engine before turning on the water and to shut the water off before shutting down...

    Re: Filled my diesel this morning

    Nice!

    Still above $2 here in Southern Oregon, but a lot cheaper than it was a year ago.

    Re: "New" Jet Boat Manufacturers?

    Here in Southern Oregon we have a number of Jet boat manufacturers, but they pretty much all deal with aluminum hull river boats. It's possible I suppose that someone builds a similar boat to the...
