90HP on a Viper

Hi Randy:

I just found this web sight and I hope you can help.

First I need a windshield and I can't find one anywhere you got any suggestions??

I have a straight 6 cylinder merc and am having problems with cavitation. Also the last two years the motor has started bogging down at take-off. Its really noticeable with a big skier over 200 pounds this boat used to rip them right out before. I replaced the plugs and the marina says I have good compression. How can I tell if my reeds are good and do you have any suggestions?

Thanks
tomsez

 

Windshields are rare these days. No new sources. Is your prop in good shape and the throttle opening all the way?
