heres a lil peach i found and bought today. 1969 Schiada 16' 355 SBC 10:1 rv cam berk B-pump. all O.G. including the upholstery.The plans are to either throw some towels over the seats and use it this season, or see if i can get a deal and  re structure the seating configuration. carpet is high on the list. funds are low but shes a runner! the gel is in pretty damn fine condition since it is a 40 year old boat. the glass in the floor is gorgeous. has stainless tanks.
i do need to replace the cables though. i gotta figure out what model morse they are.
forgive my ignorance, but i have never seen a pump nozzle like the one i have. its got like some scoop deal where the fin normally goes. anyone shed some light on that? also i got a extra set of edelbrock exhaust with it.

hey deggo, Nice boat...I say if it's a runner, hold the towels to the seats with bungees and run it this season...JG pump and that scoop thing is the reverse bucket.

I like it, that's a cool little find. Congrats ;)

Nothing wrong with a small block either, they run well and sip fuel like a fine Tennesee sippin whiskey.. :sly:

FWIW, i have a nozzle that will work a little better on that badboy if your not planning for a Place Diverter for a while.... 8)

Those nozzles there have a bunch of material hanging down and experience some drag, the later ones are shorter, you will lose a little reverse action, but worth it in the long run...I will get a pic of it tomorrow night.

I will give it to you if you want it, just gotta get it to you...I would be willing to bet that there are a hundred of the later JC, JG nozzles down your way... :sly: (Everybody puts Place Diverters on their boats)......A boat that short may not benefit from a rudder..... ???    ;D


Forgot to mention the best way to budget for a new boat, everytime you have cash in your pocket, take all the bills under a $20 and give it to the boat    :banghead:.

cool, good info. so is it just cut down? i can do that, i'm a metal fab guy. ill take the one off your hands, price is right! i'm not too worried about a rudder, everyone i know used to have one till they hit the bottom at the river. everyone says they're only good when docking etc. i don't plan on docking the boat much.

I was just offered a hot rodded Raptor for $3k today. Not sure what it is, but my son sure lit up when I mentioned it over dinner?

Not really, I live only 100ft from the River in Bullhead  ;D But when I do go out someplace else, it's usually the best section of the Colorado... Martinez  ;)

Hey Kevin... I have the old nozzle and reverse bucket off my pump that I'll give you.  As for the mini hi-torque, there is a guy in Parker that builds them.  I've got his card at home I'll PM you when I find it. As for the logs and snails, if you wanna drop the coin to polish them a clear p-coat them it will hoild up fine.  My luck with clear p-coat in the sun is that it will eventually start to turn, but like anything else you spend the time doing a little up keep and you should be able to keep it looking good for a long time.

As for a name... Bo named mine "The Little Brown Jug." Since it won't be brown when I'm done I'll let you assume the rights to the name.

Let me know if I can help with anything.
