Random Boat Parts For Sale / Re: Bbc .30 over
« on: December 05, 2017, 01:23:19 AM »
What you have to remember is,  picking the parts is only so much of the equation.  What you do with them when you get them has a lot to do with the outcome.  I bought an eagle balanced rotator assembly for my 496 back in the day..  Eagle crank, scat h beam rods forged srp pistons internally balanced ready to go!!  I sent it all to the machine shop with my block,  and they laughed!!  They said it's never "ready to go".. They had to rebalance everything,  cut the crank, add Malory to balance it,  it's production shit..  Everything has to go to the machine shop.  You can spend 4k on a pair of brodix ready to go cylinder heads and bet money they'll need to see the machine shop to square up the valve job and the decks, cuz again production stuff.. People that bitch probably buy and slam together without making sure it's right.. 👍

What?! Do you got boat ADD or what? Concentrating on the Rogers?

ADD is an understatement...

I found something to replace the Advantage, another family type rig. I'm making progress on the Rogers. I should have some updates to post tomorrow.

WTB / Re: Wanted: bow tank for 1975 Wriedt Maverick
« on: May 20, 2016, 06:51:30 PM »
I have to ask why you want 100 plus pounds of gas sloshing around in the front of your boat? Empty or full that's like having a big fat drunk buddy rolling around in the bow.
Get some saddle tanks. You won't have to replumb your whole boat, the fills are a piece of cake , as are the sending units. Just my nuisance,er....2 cents

Hulls / Re: Choosing the first Boat.
« on: May 17, 2016, 08:55:08 PM »

I was mainly looking at  just a floater, because that means the boat is cheaper.

Let's say you find a good hull with pump for $1500.  But now it needs upholstery, engine, new cables (throttle, steering, shifter, diverter), new gauges, some wiring and a few performance up grades.

Upholstery  $1500-$3000 depending on condition of wood and if you get the good guy discount.
Engine        $2500-$3500 to overhaul existing core with minimal machine work and assembling it yourself.
Cables          $200-$300
Gauges        $150-$500
wiring           $100-$500
Performance upgrades  (intake, carb, scoop, ignition, headers, nitrous, roller cam & rockers, valvetrain, custom machine work...) $500-$30,000

Don't pass up looking at running boats because of cost.  If you find a good hull to build, but have to purchase or overhaul most everything you will spend more than it'll cost you to start with a runner.

That $6000 runner isn't looking so expensive now, is it?

Welcome to SCJB.

I was wondering if your question might get lost in this thread. There are a few guys running Sprints.
Here is a thread about your question http://www.socaljetboats.com/jet-pumps/eliminator-sprints/msg222233/#msg222233.

Here is a link to the search results of "eliminator sprint".  http://www.socaljetboats.com/search2/
There are a lot of different threads about sprints.
It seems most do run a snoot on theirs. If B1 recommended it, then I would think it will benefit your ride.
Let us know the results after you get it back and run it.  :thumbup:

Thanks for the links. I figured it was a question asked before. Good info, great site. I'm looking forward to getting my boat updated and back on the water. Hopefully catch an event or two soon. Thanks again.

Boats For Sale / Re: Looking for my first jet boat.

First pic is a manifold exhaust, also referred to as logs and snails. This system is water jacketed. They don't get hot and are great for running under a covered motor.

Second pic is a set of headers. These are less restrictive than manifolds. This set is water injected. What that means is above a certain RPM (1800) water is injected a couple inches from the flange to keep them "somewhat" cool. A lot of people also run them dry.

Projects / Re: Dream come true

I'd recommend holding off on launching at Big River until you have a couple successful runs under your belt because of the difficulty launching/retrieving in the current.

I would recommend using the ramp at Blue Water marina for many reasons, first being the low stress atmosphere, wide ramp, calm water, big no wake zone to cruise around and test for leaks and proper operation of all controls.

Good luck in your new adventure and welcome to SCJB  ;D
