I wish that would’ve held true on their Honda Odyssey. The oil filter was directly above a crossmember which made it pretty much impossible to drain the oil without getting oil everywhere.

That’s ski is looking better and better! Hopefully when you get it out on the water it will give you no trouble. Will you recover the seats eventually?

Where did you get those traction mats?
Had it out already. Ran like a beast but threw a code after about 30 minutes. Oil is still nice and clean. Didnt realize you really need to pull the codes when it happens. Will need another test drive. Bought the mats on Ebay. They're black tips in the blue marble. Dropping the seat off on monday.20190410_181107.jpg

Very true. My wife drives an Odyssey right now. Unfortunately, the minivan platform drives a lot if packaging compromises (which is an issue for all minivan builders).

/ end threadjack. Apologies to OP.

Dropped the seats off yesterday. They think they will get them done by the weekend. We will see.

Went and got it registered in my name today. Installed new reg stickers and installed a couple custom cut pieces of traction mat to cover up some cosmetic flaws. I also installed a new Jack on the trailer cause the old one was badly rusted.

I really like the seating position on mine, quite comfortable but then again I also stand and ride it to break it up especially if there a chop.

Awesome! I hope it gives you many trouble free hours! Have you pulled the pump and check the impeller bearings?

Yeah I estimate mine is worth 4-5K and it has been 100% trouble free except when my employees grounded it on the river and jammed the impeller with wood and rocks. That was a pump redo but it was worth it cause it got rid of the cavitation due to wear, with the turbo boost it started getting annoying
