Hey Gang....I was thinking about making an intake system that will draw air from an opening in the front deck. I run a cowling and wanted to get some air in the engine that is not heated(especially during the offshore race). I was wondering if it is legal. Thanks a bunch in advance!

Hi Jim...I did an air box on one of my old Thunderboats, it was built below the deck, in the side,,with a velocity stack butting up against it. I put a rearward facing scoop on the deck over the hole. It worked well, but didn't seem to run any worse,,OR any better. I'll see if I can dig up a couple pics. As far as legality in offshore, it's not an issue.
