... July 2006 After
27 years I put my 18c in the lake for the first time last Friday. Considering
the time since the engines had been run they both started.
After some carb work. I have 13 1/4 23 props on it. Right from the
start it ran pretty well. I ran about 15 gals of fuel each through them
in about 3 hours bombing around. At first the right side motor
seemed to bog some and was not inclined to tach up as was the left.
Over time the right side was getting better. I ended up with about
4500rpm on both. I have a set of 21's that I am going to put on before
my next ride. There are no words that describe the
rush it is to drive one of these boats. It is still more of a
thrill than I have ever gotten from cars, bikes, and etc.
