  1. So my 2000 elite V drive flexplate went last fall. A new one was put in this spring and not too many hours later the new one went. The first one I can write off as old, but the 2nd seems to point at possibly some other issue? Any Ideas? Chris
  2. Even with wake shaper we are close also
  3. Are you using a wake shaper? Need one for this boat.
  4. Carbon Pro Trailer

    I believe centurion uses two companies for trailers. One is VM. http://vmboattrailers.com/
  5. 2006 Centurion Avalanche C4

    swoop by pro flight? https://www.ebay.com/itm/144017022600?chn=ps&norover=1&mkevt=1&mkrid=711-117182-37290-0&mkcid=2&itemid=144017022600&targetid=1266362023384&device=m&mktype=pla&googleloc=9016961&poi=&campaignid=11614528967&mkgroupid=110408994662&rlsatarget=pla-1266362023384&abcId=9300457&merchantid=6307714&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIyK2z0afn8AIVDwaICR1FkAmAEAQYASABEgImE_D_BwE
  6. No, just replace the steering cable. If original way overdue.
  7. I just bought the kind that clamp onto large round pipes and put them on the tower
  8. If you cannot find the actuator wires the lower bolt is accessible under the v drive center seat at the opening at starboard rear.
  9. Neil polish remover is acetone. I buy it by the gallon.
  10. photo limit??

    That was the issue. The card I had on file was cancelled awhile ago.
  11. I should have left the 36 grit surface. I only went to 80 do we will see how slippery.
  12. What year is your boat? Is the platform pretty squared off where my ends are pretty angled. Is there gap between the planks? Our platforms seem pretty different. Arr those pictures with oil? Mine got real dark.
  13. My 2000 teak platform was in pretty sad shape. Grayed, surface and edge cracks. Since I am a woodworker I have a full shop of tools and here is what I did. Took out all the stainless screws and disassembled the whole platform. Cleaned/sanded all the dirt off one edge of each plank and got a straight edge with my jointer and then table sawed each plank to the same width (lot of variation). Put all the parts through my drum sander. I took it down so there was no gray wood left. In retrospect I took a little more off than I should have. Instead I should have taken off enough so that 75% of the gray was left and then sand the rest with a hand sander. Routed a 1/8" radius on the plank edges. Re routed the trough at the rear of the last plank on my router table. Coated all surface with 80% Linseed oil/20% mineral spirits multiple coats letting them soak in. laid out planks upside down and reattached with new stainless screws (slightly shorter 1 1/4" since I took just a little bit too much off) assuring everything was square. I did make up 1/8" spacers to put a gap between each plank. they were tight before and held dirt and crap. used a router to rout the overlaps on both ends and anywhere else there was wood overhanging and not even. Put multiple coats of ~ 60% linseed oil/15% mineral spirits/25% danish oil. Teak oil is linseed oil/mineral spirits with some varnish. The danish is the same thing and I had it laying around. Do not use too much varnish because it will need to be taken off to refinish because it will peel. the oil really darkens the wood.
  14. Tried to post a photo and it says I reached my limit. Do I need to delete old posted photos? That seems like the wrong thing to do.
