I believe it was sandeggo, not sure his real name. I believe he had an old Schiada jet before this one, and restored it as well. Seem to do quality work. Both boats were really nice.

I owned it for about 5 years before I sold it to Sandeggo. Before me it was owned by Futz’ brother.

You can see it in some of the earlier SoCal Jet Boat YouTube videos. It used to be brown and yellow.

Tom Papp had his hands on it. Was a fun boat until we had kids lol

Keep it simple first. Did you pull the t-stat housing yet? Are you running a t-stat?

Jet Pumps / Re: Motor is out got only one trip new motor

What happened was last year I heart 2 Pistons.
The shop that usually works on my stuff was very very busy.
So a friend said I know someone he's a machine shop he can do it for you.
So I figured honing it out pistons and rings rebalance new bearings I'm done ready to go.
This guy took it on himself saying he didn't like my bearing clearances and he freaking change them so when I was at the river for the first time at the SoCal meet I had barely any oil pressure.

This guy didn't like that he open my bearings for the rods 3.4 to
And the main store 4.4 I had no oil pressure that was way too loose.
As well.
Brand new motor my rings didn't see. I don't know what he did I have 25% leak down on every cylinder.
So I'm very upset I pulled my motor out and that's where we have it he's going to put the bearings back to the main 3.2 the rods 3.0 and new rings.

You sure you want him touching your motor again?

Sorry to hear bud. Hope it gets resolved quickly.

Pretty sure they are the original 21’ Daytona hulls. Got any pics of your keel with the conversion?

I use a fuel/water separator with no other inline filters along with a Clay Smith mechanical fuel pump.

This is what I’m using now. Seems to work well. Haven’t been pitched lately so no real world experience but testing is flawless lol

Lower River / Re: Big River area land lease
« on: December 29, 2017, 01:48:20 PM »
Thinking of buying a place in Big River.  I know the master lease expires in 2029 so its a little bit of a gamble...  Anybody have info on this area or how the lease deal works?   I would be a little skeptical to invest big money into something that may go away in 11 years....

It’s definitely a gamble when you’re talking about negotiating with C.R.I.T. for land lease deals.

We are in Big River and love it but it’s definitely something in the back of our minds. It’s likely the Indians will renew and all is well but they’re very unpredictable too.

I think you’re kind of answering your own question if your gut is already hesitant.

Unless it’s an unheard of deal where it’s worth the risk I probably wouldn’t be dropping a bunch of coin into an investment you might not have in a decade or two.

Fuel vapor can/will settle in the lowest part of your bilge, covered or not.

Anything not insulated can make things go boom. I️ cannot see a downside to using marine rated equipment.

Of course we did it for years without marine grade items and all survived but now that they’re readily available, and required, why wouldn’t you?

Where do you tap in for an oil temp gauge?

Weld a bung and temp probe on your oil pan.

What type of exhaust are you running with this setup? Any specifics (collector length or any other special features) that you can include about the exhaust would be greatly appreciated. CK

HiTech built my pump and supplied my headers. They're the jacketed stainless steel with the so-called anti reversion tubes on the website, maybe a 14" collector. Scroll down from this link.

I wasn't sure what to expect from a quality standpoint but 5 years, 1100 horse, and they're run really hard and they still look and run like new. No leaks or cracks and no reversion issues.

Im running a solid roller Lunati .254/.259 duration, 112 lobe separation, .703/.693 lift on a 1071 blown 509" and zero issues on reversion.

Anything can get reversion if your not thorough with your setup but blower motors don't tend to have that issue much.

The surge is cool the first one or two times but sucks for any kind of decent dock manors. I'm going to dial back the surge when the motor goes back to the builder for a health check up this winter.

It had a 468 BBC when I owned it. I sold it less motor and new owner put the LS and painted it.

Definitely a fun boat!

A blown LS would be cool

My old boat. Tom Papp (RIP) had his hands all over it.
