The No Wake Zone / Re: Keeping dog off boat

Watch The Dog Whisperer.
He’d probably say your dog is bored or having separation anxiety. Or there maybe cats or other critters getting in the boat. Is there any way to barricade/fence in the boat?

Hey Joe , I’m experiencing the same thing. I have a JC bowl and an old style Place diverter, no o-ring. Can a groove be milled into the socket of the diverter for an o-ring? I wouldn’t think so but thought I’d ask.

I’d say a mini day cruiser as well. If you look them up, they’re pretty common. They are good boats and it looks like you got a nice one.

Gelcoat / Paint / Fireberglass Repair / Re: Gel coat crack repair
« on: September 21, 2018, 07:22:51 PM »
Welcome to SCJB.
From what I’ve read on these forums over the years, the cracks are actually in the fiberglass. That means to fix it properly you’d have to grind out the crack and feather the fiberglass back in.
If you were to just re-gel over the crack, I think it would just come back as the hull flexes.

Can you maneuver a box end wrench around it?

Did the pipe get bent back towards the bolt?

It's just a phase. Most college kids experiment.
But, most stop after college.  :sly:

Clean looking motor.  :thumbup:

Welcome back. I was wondering how this would end up. Definitely looking forward to seeing the end product.  :thumbup:

Is the grey on the jet a primer or a base coat?

There’s nothing like getting beat by a canoe.

Does anybody know how fast those things going?

I have a CP18 Tunnel hull, weights 250lbs, that I’m building. I have heard stories about their shut downs, looks like I will just to find out for myself. Even though my buddies tell me to sell it and get a Cheyenne or a tunnel picklefork.

Does it have the added sponsons in the front? I believe that really helped the boat have a stable shut down.

Welcome back.  As long as the hull is solid, it should be a good platform to build on. I dig the colors. And it’s got a bimini. So come Thursday, you’ll have some shelter.

The CP tunnels are very quick boats. Usually set up for drag racing. But they are known to have an issue on shut down where they tend to hook and pitch the driver out. Most guys that run them added something to extend the sponsons. I believe CP added the drop sponsons into the mold.  If you do a search for “CP tunnel” you should find some forum threads about them. I’m not sure if it was an issue with the Sunkist hulls. But, I would think more likely than not it’s the same.

Hulls / Re: New member from AZ
« on: August 21, 2018, 12:20:59 PM »
Welcome to SCJB. The hull looks similar to an older Eliminator Sprint.   If you do a search for” Propless, Eliminator” you’ll find a thread from a member named propless and his Eliminator Sprint that he bought and put some work into.

There is a TPR Stealth named Tunnel Vision.
But I'd say keep the name if you like it.  :thumbup:

Hey Gage
First off, Welcome to SCJB. Congrats on the new boat and getting it on your own. You are already ahead in the game by reaching out for guidance and willing to learn. Good job.
Make sure you got all your required safety equipment: life jacket for everyone in the boat, throwable cushion, fire extinguisher (charged and in date), oar, orange flag...
If you go to the front page and search new to jetboats, there’s been a few threads with some pointers as well.
Remember: jet boats need thrust to steer.
Always keep your head on a swivel and watch out for people passing you or turning right in front of you. Especially in front of the Avi.
Have you had your boat out yet?  If so how does it run? Any issues?

WOW! That is just since the fire started with the water drops?

Maybe you could run your garden hose out there for a little while.  ;D

« on: August 13, 2018, 02:24:31 PM »
ive lost a strap that way before...

only thing ive remotely had success with is the strap over the pump in the back.Also i loosen it as soon as im where i need to be, try not to leave the stress on it to long

gonna change up the trailer eventually
Hey Steve

Yeah I’ve tried that a few times. Over the pump and up to the ski tow. Still slid back.

I was mostly wondering how common it is.

The entrance to the cove is narrow,  but the cove itself ispleenty deep thru the center, you can't walk across from side to side. But it is for sure low..

your friendly local v-drive owner
Thanks.
You’re OK for a v-drive guy no matter what these guys say about you.

It’s all good. I was just kidding myself.

Thanks for the update. So the water level is still  low? Do you still got to be careful at the entrance to the cove?
