The No Wake Zone / Re: What did you do to your boat today?

Wow, that is an ambitious project.

Please post more pictures of how you rigged the stern.  What are you lifting from on the bow?

Thanks in advance.

Ambitious was actually purchasing this pile, it is bordering on insanity at this point but this is the disease that is jet boats.  I took a few pointers from some of the old timers doing the big Schiada and Spectra flips.  I built a sort of rotisserie as just about the center of the transom with some extra metal stock I had.  Utilized a few of the existing holes in the transom and plated the interior side with aluminum for a backer to the hardware.  Wrapped a chain around this mount twice to prevent it from slipping off and it allows for the boat to rotate around this point.  I will reset the bow strap to one side instead of straight on to naturally roll the boat as we lift.  At this point the boat is empty with only a sub floor installed, more pics to come as we actually roll it over.

Just found this thread.  Great job on the interior, that thing looks great.  Wish you luck on the cutting out issue, that one sounds like it could be a pain to troubleshoot.

Like sandeggo said, it's more assembling than building.  Just accumulate all your parts and it's complete within 30 mins.  I just finished my 2nd one last night and can't wait to break it in.  Do you have an idea of what you want to use it for?  My first was the typical carbine length covered in Magpul furniture just to say I could do it but I built my 2nd to work in competition 3gun, the options are almost limitless I guess.  If you have any questions just ask.

Here's a few from June's first Big River trip, I found out that day that riding in the boat is not her thing.  Fighting bouy's on the other hand kept her busy all day!

I don't have any excuses this year now that I have a place to stay in Parker, I know it might be a bit early but I need to see some more boat time.

anything else u may b able to tell me about the hallet?

That Hallett is going to be real solid and can take some good abuse, it will never be a very fast boat but it will put up some respectable numbers if that's what you're looking for.  This is a nice boat, great original gel from the 70's you won't be disappointed.

For ease of installation I have a Mallory HEI on my BBF but you are already deep in ignition components so I would probably go with the MSD like Ralph and Gord said.
