    @dbski I know your skis! Since 2008 that I was at the waterski fantasy camp and you have given them one as give away. Didn’t win it but I wish I had, really like the skis you are making! I’m at the other side of the Atlantic, so a little far away to buy one or to send you mine for engraving. Plus I like working on stuff all the time.
    If You can help me with what to look for, engraving option or suggestions, I would really appreciate it.
    By the way your hot rod project is so cool, I have great respect of your craftsmanship.

    @skialex ,
    I really like how you kept it satin,
    doesn't look right to me when people 'restore' on old ski but choose to super gloss it, then looks plasticized, not genuine

    @ReallyGottaSki it’s just sanded, still lots to do. I like satin too, so I’m taking this as an advice, don’t like super gloss either.
    I found it online new for €40, cheap bindings and plastic fin screwed on the bottom. Bought it to make a decorative ski out of it 5 years ago, started working on it few days ago.

    Refinished a couple of worn steering wheels with PlastiDip. Was proud of the effort until I saw @Jody_Seal first photo in this thread with the high gloss finish on his wheel.

    @Gloersen I believe that is an old Casale V Drive.
  • GloersenGloersen Posts: 984 Crazy Baller
    ^^ ah, that makes sense now with additional pic.
    no reverse?

  • thagerthager Posts: 4,839 Mega Baller
    No time yet. Getting the boat ready for the lake today. Yesterday dock and lift went in.
    Stir vigorously then leave!

    @DW nice project. What is total weight Delta vs iron?
  • dbskidbski Posts: 292 Crazy Baller
    @skialex Feel free to message me anytime for ideas.

    @Gloersen
    That is a 10 degree Casale V-drive.
    Over driven about 20%.
    I do have a reverse as I utilize a series 40 PCM transmission in front of the v drive.

    I’d bet some of you can guess what I’m building (rebuilding) based on the picture below (hint: that’s the oil drain hose).

    @skimtb - 290 lbs as I have been pretty aggressive with wt reduction on it. It came out with a leaky $2 rear main seal that's when the short block was changed ... hp is ~500, guess I got carried away:-)

    @Jody_Seal - cool!
    takin a spin in a hot-rod boat would be a welcome respite from all this crap.
