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

Can you post up pics of your set up?
I have an old rack style and everything was bolted. No puller necessary.

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, thereís 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

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 Iíve 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.
Youíre OK for a v-drive guy no matter what these guys say about you.

Itís 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?

And let's bring this thread back before it hits the point of no return.
Does anybody know what the lake is like after this fire? Is there ash all over the place?

Jet Pumps / Re: Over loading the pump
« on: August 07, 2018, 07:14:50 PM »
mine has always been this way, i think i'm leaving stuff on the table with it how it is

setting my droop angle with the wedges really helped to free the boat up, but it also made it more "draggy" kid of hard to explain

But kid of like a fish on a line feeling... atleast thats the best way i can explain it

What is the HP difference between your current motor and the blower motor that was in it before?
More HP needs more water. I don't think it would be enough to change the intake setup but, maybe. ???

Maybe just try it without the shim for the shoe?

Here's some reading on loaders

I tie strap the bow.  See if that helps.


Sent from my iPhone using SoCal Jet Boats

I've thought about that. But the only place to strap it to is lower than the bow eye at the trailer handles on the tongue.
I was going to try it this last trip but forgot.

But with the strap going low like that, I would think if the bow bounces down it could give the strap a little slack allowing it to slip back. I was trying to figure out how to have the strap level with the bow eye like a winch set up.

I'm thinking it's Canyon. it looks a lot like the boats I posted links to in your other thread.

When paper work gets lost or transferred from other states, info sometimes gets mixed up.

For example, when I registered my boat and trailer back into CA, the lady that did the inspection put down my trailer as a single axle when it actually has 2.

Not saying it is for sure a Canyon and not Cannon, but likely. There is also not a lot of info on Canyon boats either.

Either way, it's a nice looking boat. Have you had it out on the water yet? Is it turnkey or does it need some work?

And then there's this for a about 60% the cost of that CP.
My boat and rigging could be way better, but really. :sly: That PVC is killing me.

Open bow CP

Sent from my SM-J727T using SoCal Jet Boats mobile app

I saw this and was going to post it. I met the owner (not sure if it is the current owner) and hung out with him and his friends at Big River a few years ago. He showed us around and led us up to the cove there.
Chuck was his name and he was a real nice guy. The boat was super CLEAN and ran good.
I remember when this boat was first built and for sale on Performance Boats. It started out as a closed bow.

The No Wake Zone / Boat sliding back while towing
« on: July 31, 2018, 11:32:54 PM »
Does anybody else have have a problem with the boat sliding back a bit on the trailer while towing? When I load the boat on the trailer, I can have about 1/2" of bunk showing and the floater bar pin is pushed to the back of the bow eye.
By the time I get home, this last trip I noticed it at the first stop, the bunks are 1/2" under the boat and the pin is pushing forward on the bow eye. 
I have tried to strap the transom down, over the pump, from ski hook mounted on the engine to the trailer. No matter what the boat seems to slide back.

Just wondering if this is normal with floater bar set ups.

« on: July 27, 2018, 04:46:03 PM »
Gas gets stuff off real good. When you goto seal it back up, use 100% silicone.
Don't use a marine ADHESIVE type sealant or you'll never get it off.

Do you have an idea where the leaks are?

Here is a link to an article written about building an Olds. It covers using the plugs or having them filled.

Good luck.

You might not get that many more RPM's, and you'll use a lot more fuel, but tunnel rams just look so cool on a jet boat! Looking forward to see what difference it made.
