I will say this.......Funny things come out at these CCFan Mini's and the old saying that "A picture is worth a thousand words" is pretty evident by this "Footo" so I will just leave this here!

     Finally getting around to this: Great pictures of a fabulous weekend Tim!! Many many thanks to Greg and Sue who are without a doubt the most welcoming and hospitable people you will ever meet!! They opened up their beautiful home to the CCF gang, their friends, their dogs, and in my case my son and grandson. I cannot say enough about how great it was to see old friends and get to finally meet others who we only knew of through this forum. Hard as it may be for some to believe I truly enjoyed meeting and spending a great deal of time with Chris Quinn....don't believe ALL the bad things you hear about this guy!!
       One final thank you to Greg and Sue for making my personal stay so comfortable...I couldn't have asked for finer accommodations!!

Who owns the 85 BFN? Great looking boat! Original or restored?
If restored where did you get the lettering?

The ‘85 resides at our dock. Original boat, well used with all the scars. Picked it up in September from Scott Benjamin.

At the moment that story is to be continued.   We started to break it in over the winter but the boat was leaking badly from an exhaust hose. It was later found to have water in the oil.   We attempted to address that problem when we got to NC by replacing a couple exhaust manifold gaskets and it looked pretty promising that had solved the problem. However the timing and the ignition conversion seemed to be a bit wonky and we were lacking the parts/tools to get it dialed in so tim and Zach picked a compromise spot with the distributor I was half planning to leave it on the trailer at gregs but figured it was a good boat to hold my gear and cooler and there were plenty of tow boats to bring it back. Generally it ran pretty good all weekend - Gary had pulled up the floor and replaced the rotten hose with some copper pipe and the boat sounds magical and is big and comfy. It handles waves better than I expected and the flip up windshield is good protection in a rain storm or colder ride and allows all kinds of air in when the sun comes out. Its even a fairly respectable trick ski boat.

However, it doesn't appear to be charging - has a early style cooling system that was burning off paint all weekend, and died on Sara while waiting for the trailer to be brought to the ramp at the end of the last day out and wouldn't restart.

I didn't see any water in the oil on Sunday morning so I figured we were in the clear there and hoped that a quick switch to a points distributor and finding out the true location of top dead center would have it ready for fall cruising and let us know how she could really run out.

But that didn't happen... while I was using a piston stop to find top dead center (it was 30plus degrees off of the old mark) I found a bunch of water in cylinder 8, and evidence that there had been some small amount running through 3.   The water in 8 I might well have sucked in rotating the engine back and forth.   I am still optimistic that its related to exhaust manifolds as the compression test is more than excellent on all the cylinders at this point. Water in the cylinders should either be a result of something that effects compression or be due to leaky manifolds.

I have it sitting there drained and lubed - I will have to pressure test, clean up, paint up, and swap in the entire later model cooling system that was original to the 426 that came in the boat. Will do the same with the ignition and charging systems and give her another go - racing against winter though and jegs sent my Chrysler green paint order to someone else and now has to get more from the factory...

Good that you got a decent parts engine. Keep it high on the priority list. It's a beautiful boat.
