1980 Silverado Boats 19’ Jet Boat

I am the second owner of the boat. I purchased the boat approximately two years ago from the original owner who ordered it new from Silverado Boats in Gardena, CA. The bottom is similar to a 19’ Carrera Eclipse and 18’ Bubble Deck. The stringers were replaced by the original owner and are solid, otherwise this boat is a time capsule. I bought the boat and restored it to where it is today while adding a few performance items. The boat has never been abused and is truly a throw back to what a classic river boat was and still is today.

Hull/Pump
· Full cut/buff after I bought it and has been waxed every few trips since then
· Berkeley split bowl pump with either an AA or A impeller. I’ve never looked other than visually checking for issues but the original owner had the pump rebuilt and put a “ski” impeller to run at lower RPMs for skiing. It looks brand new with no knicks, imperfections, etc.
· Hydraulic Place Diverter with stainless lines and a switch on the drivers left on the dash
· New shift cable installed last year
· Stainless steel dual gas tanks

Engine
· 454 Big Block Chevy
· 4 bolt main
· Polished Dooley scoop and arrestor (has air release holes drilled in bottom of scoop)
· Edelbrock Victor Jr. polished intake (bought new and polished last year)
· Polished Hardin Marine valve covers
· Large oval port heads (not peanut heads)
· NGK-2953 platinum spark plugs (replaced last year)
· Holley 850 double pumper carburetor (rebuilt last year)
· 2’’ 4 hole carburetor spacer (new last year)
· HEI Chevrolet performance distributor (new last year)
· Taylor 10.4mm plug wires with loom separators (new last year)
· Carter 120 gph mechanical fuel pump (new last year)
· Rewarder ceramic coated water injected headers (they have been run dry hence the bluing, I have recently added a softer spring to the Basset T valve to run water at Ύ throttle and above)
· New throttle cable installed last year
· Chrome ski tow (replated last year)
· Motor has never been disassembled per the previous owner. I’ve had the valve covers off and that is the extent of my knowledge of the top end.
· Oil is changed every few trips with VR-1 with an AC Delco ADO-PF35L filter
· AC Delco fuel filter (ADO-GF157)
· Rebuilt starter last year
· New belt last year

Interior
· Original interior in good shape with a small separation starting on the passenger seat (bottom seat cushion) and a few small imperfections but otherwise in good condition considering its age
· New subfloor when the stringers were replaced with drain for under the subfloor that has a PVC fitting that is always removed after use
· Sierra Amega gauges installed last year
· The water temp gauge is not currently working and I haven’t had time to chase it down. The old gauge worked but I’m not sure what the issue is. Block flows freely so I haven’t made a conceited effort to figure out what the issue is.
· I have a matching hour gauge to match the set just never got around to installing it as it came on backorder after I installed the others

Trailer
· Tandem axle boxed with a 2’’ receiver
· Rewired with new LED lights last year
· New inner fender well wood/carpet last year
· Overall in good shape but could use paint
· Bunks have the classic shag carpet
· Riveted modular rims with two year old tires with approximately 2,000 miles on them
· No jack on the trailer but there is a threaded pole at screws into the trailer near the tounge with a heavy three wheeled stand that it fits into which makes moving it on flat surfaces a breeze.
· Stainless transom hooks with billet fender washers and new transom tie downs

I am sure I am missing some info but this boat has been bulletproof and was a really fun project but it is time to thin the herd. I only ran the boat three times this past summer with its last trip being this past weekend (12/8/18). It ran flawlessly and is a turn key boat. The boat has always been stored indoors and it shows. I will likely regret selling this boat but I’d rather see it be put to its intended use than sit. The boat is in Parker AZ but I can pull it back to Orange County CA for a cash-in-hand buyer. My work schedule typically only keeps me free on Sundays, so if you want to discuss further shoot me a PM and I will give you my number so we can chat first and then coordinate a time to see the boat.

Price - $9,000 FIRM. By firm I mean I will not accept a dollar less. I don’t need to sell the boat, but if you show up with $9,000 cash I will sign over the pink slips (both in hand and the boat is registered through 2019 while the trailer has perm tags, both of which are in my name) and give you all the spare stuff I have to go with it such as matching orange lines, medium box anchor, orange buoy, etc. (will not be sold separately). Not interested in any trades.
