Jet Pumps / Running Engine at Home
« on: August 28, 2017, 08:05:46 AM »
You always read don't run your jet out of the water.  Yet you see a lot of folks running their engines at home.

So what is the best way to run your engine at home for such things as setting float levels in the carb and adjusting idle screws etc before heading out to put the boat in the water?

Hopefully, there will be some comedic value to Joe in the future!  Otherwise, there will be NOTHING positive to look forward to coming out of D.C. for the next 4 years.  The LOOK is pretty intense after the joke!  I bet Obama was hoping to have Biden Water Borted after this press conference!

I gotta love it, anything to piss of B.H.O!

What size threads or on the Shift Levers?  I need to locate a low profile one and/or make one.  The one on my boat is too tall and hits the dash.

Boat Racing / Types of Boat Races
« on: December 23, 2008, 12:13:22 AM »
I know about Drag Boat and K-Boats and Cracker Boat Racing but was wondering what other forms there are to do with a jet ?

Can you list the types of racing, sanctioning bodies and websites for the various forms of racing out there?

Has anyone here run the system on their boat?  What was your total cost and what components did you run for your installation?  Were you happy with the Performance/Economy of the Mega Squirt System?



Boat Showcase / 1988 19' Commander Jet Boat
« on: December 18, 2008, 09:19:07 AM »
Here are a couple of photos of the new toy.  The boat has a 454 with Berkley Jet.  It is basically stock and needs some TLC.  I will post more photos when I get it done.


Projects / Steering Cables
« on: December 12, 2008, 02:16:45 PM »
I am not sure which Forum to put this in so here goes!

I have a 19ft. Commander that has a stuck steering cable on a Berkley Jet. The helm works fine and I am sure that with a simple lube the cable could be freed up but my question is what is the best way to try to pull the cable from the housing? What type of lube should be on the cable? If that is not feasible, where can I find a complete cable with housing? I know Morse used to be (and may still be the best) I will be working on the boat in Orange County, Ca so if there are any shops out that way can you let me know and what should I expect to pay?

Secondary question, how tight a radius can these cables withstand and still work?



Boat Racing / Off The Wall Question About Racing
« on: December 11, 2008, 10:48:05 PM »
I was at the races at Firebird noticed that the slowest boats are in the River Runner Category but to me they still go pretty darn fast.  So here is the off the wall question.

Has there ever been any consideration of running 1/8th mile drag boat races so that guys that have 60-85 mph boats can have some fun at the races as well?  I am not sure how far down the first set of timing lights are but if they were set at 1/8th mile or so I am guessing you might have some fans that are in the stands get their feet wet on a practice/qualifying day.

Just curious!

Boat Showcase / Mid 80's 19' Commander Jet Boats
« on: November 29, 2008, 12:57:45 AM »
What is your opinion on this boat?  BBC 454 325HP with Berkley Jet in good condition.  How do these hulls compare to others out there such as Bahner, Southwind, Eliminator and whatever else you would like to compare them to.  What do you think one would be worth now?



Projects / 70's Vintage Nordic Jet Boats
« on: November 25, 2008, 06:49:20 AM »
What is everyone's opinions of them? I found what seems to be a decent boat in So Cal through a friend but I have no clue about their reputation for quality and whether or not there are any issues with them that I should be aware of. Any insight would be appreciated.  This one happens to be 460 powered with a Berkley Jet.  Is there anything in particular on the engine and/or Berkley I should have a closer look at as well?
