We are super excited about this news! This year at Horsepower Fest, we decided to raffle off, among the many other awesome things, a Jet Boat!

The boat is a 1974 Tahiti and is in a total project state. It came with a Berkeley pump and a 454 Big Block Chevy. The idea with this project is to get various shops and parts manufacturers in the jet boat community to jump in and help out with this build. This will help them build their brand and also let them contribute to the end goal Ė raise money for the Semper Fi Fund. They are the charity we are raising money and awareness for this year with Horsepower Fest! So if you or you know someone who is interested in donating parts, time, or services towards this project, please let us know! This will be an awesome project to bring together people in the boating community for an awesome cause.

Currently we have James Bostick of Bostick Racing Engines that will be helping out with the engine build!

Awesome idea Brad! I hope there is a video made of the restoration/transformation. Would be great to showcase how to correctly restore a boat and what companies to use. Whoever wins will be one lucky individual. Question, will the boat be named before presenting to the winner? I kind of feel like it should
In God we trust, all others pay cash.

I think it is awesome cause to raise money for Semper Fi  I would love to be a part of this if at all possible we plan on being at the event this year since I now have something to put in the water I don't have anything water related with horsepower to donate to the cause but I could offer a day and a race car to add to the raffle that helps raise the bar and get people to spend more money on the raffle this would be at chuckwalla Valley Raceway in Desert Center California
