Soak those is CRC6-56 (or similar) often and may last longer than you think as mine have, so far, fingers crossed.
Man, she looks insanely good!Replaced the struts that hold my gullwing storage hatches open. One wasn't doing it's job. Got them on Amazon for $14 for the pair.View attachment 94064
I also applied Topcoat F11 to every surface on the boat except for the carpet and Seadek. View attachment 94065View attachment 94066View attachment 94064View attachment 94065View attachment 94066View attachment 94067View attachment 94068
That's a good start. However, you'll find that somehow, no matter how many things you check off the list, the lists never shrinks... every season my list is just as long...Started working on the new to me boat to get her "ship shape" . . . summarized them and show a few things completed off the "List of Things" to do:
1) New Goodyear tires on trailer
2) Finished pulling off stickers - previous owner started, and cleaned up the residual glue.
3) Installed new reverse gate cable - due to broken original cable and re-installed reverse gate.
4) Installed stainless steel pneumatic lift for the cleanout tray. Prior one was rusted.
5) Cleaned out engine compartment from prior owners spilling a lot of oil from a prior oil change.
6) Pulled out stuck clean-out plugs with 3-ton lift.
7) Built new bunks, covered and installed
8) Installed new LED brakelight on Port side of trailer.
9) Cleaned, and cleaned some more.
10) Pulled batteries that were dead and recharged them.
11) Ordered new keys.
12) Received replacement drain plug.
13) Installed YDIS software on computer.
Lots of other things on the list to do . . . and the board has given me some great ideas.
I envy your reverse nozzles, that new Yamaha design is great.After having the boat out a few times this season to get a feel for the stock steering, today wound up being a good day to install the Cobra Jet Super Magnum AK-19 kit with the fangs option! Looking forward to having a warm day soon to get back out and enjoy them! Thanks to Jeff @Cobra Jet Steering LLC for all the timely answers to my questions!

I was pleased to see that they had updated nozzles on the 19's. I've been used to i/o's for decades, but being newer specifically to the jetboat world, I figured I needed all the control I could get (that is to say, the stock config wasn't bad). The Admiral appreciated it too since she's never really driven boats at all in the past.I envy your reverse nozzles, that new Yamaha design is great.
