    Hey guys,

    The v24 that I have developed a crack on the header (from what I have been reading a very common problem), What I am wondering is what is the solution. It dosent appear that aquacraft has come up with a new header, so I am guessing that ordering a new one will just result in the same type of issue.

    Any Ideas here, she is a great boat despite this issue, I would just like to find a way to resolve it.

    Mike

    Yer mate send it here and I will fix it and test, test, test and maybe a bit more testing. Lol just pulling your leg. I haven't been able to find an answer to that same question myself.

    What type of motor is guys? it's not because it's running hot and your developing hot spots in the head is it? thats why it's cracking?

    Yes, Yama, he has been busy lately. Check out the thread on the BajaForum. Seems the only thing he has been busy with is stealing items from members......

    Sorry you had to find out like this, but perhaps all 6 of us that have been taken by him, may save someone else who would believe his stories...
