I picked up a '75 Mandella flatbottom jet at the end of last year. It was last registered in '05. It sat covered, but water got in the boat and unfortunately the motor.

Lee (69Kona) is building the motor and pump for the boat. Hopefully he can chime in on the specifics of the motor build.

So far I've stripped the interior and most of the old rigging from the boat. The plan is:

Bring back the shine of the floors.

Replace the fiberglass tanks with aluminum or stainless.

Repair the interior wood since the material still in excellent shape.

Re-rig the boat as clean as possible.

The motor parts were polished at one point, but after sitting for fourteen years outside they were in sad shape. My focus on this project lately has been painting and polishing all the parts going back on the motor.

Next up is fiberglass work! One fuel tank is out. They laid these tanks up thicker than some boats I've seen!

The pics below are from the day I brought it home.

Here are some pics of when it was in one piece. Anyone recognize where they are on the water? It's The Cove (formerly Riviera) in Blythe. I think it's pretty cool this boat was used on a stretch of river I frequent.

The motor is .030 over .
Zero decked the block
Milled the G heads for smaller combustion chambers
I went to a 45* seat angle instead of the stock 30*  on the valve seats and put the big valves and isky valve springs for the comp cam 292
Forged pistons 10:1 compression
Oiling mods
Balanced the rotating assembly
Motor will make some killer torque

Here's some before and after on the motor parts. Whatever I couldn't polish I painted.

Cool looking boat. How do these ride?

Be careful when tightening those valve covers. I have the same ones and snapped that bolting flange real easy.

Looking forward to see how it turns out.

Thanks for the heads up. I'd be bummed after all the time I spent on them!

I've talked to a couple guys that owned a Mandella flat.  They don't handle like a typical jet, but nothing weird. We shall see!!

I pieced together a solid ignition system. I had the 6AL box left over from an old motor and found a good deal on the distributor.

Did you do the polishing yourself? If so, great job.

Thank you!! It's been a longer than expected project and I almost sold it along the way, but it's how these things go.

I'm happy with how it's turning out. I can't wait to get it out on the water for a little winter run.

Making the most of my angle grinder and HF drill press. It ain't much, but it's honest work!

I decided I wanted the ignition box on the other side of the engine and also wanted to move the oil filter forward from its location on my original bracket. So, I remade them. Just need to polish them.

The HOA put a stop to me working on the boat at home pretty quick. I got a spot at Daytona Storage in Perris. They're pretty cool about me working on the boats and the units have power.

That's an hoa for you.

But it works both ways. 

I don't have to listen to somebody grinding away at something, either, if I'm in an hoa.

No, I don't live in an hoa.

Pick your battles.

Unfortunately, that's where I live currently. No street parking either. Where I lived prior I had two projects sitting in front of the house for months and no one cared.

Ultimately, it's better that I got myself a little shop space. More room, everything is inside, and I can work on it any time of the day and night. The other day I was over there until 3:30am making noise.

Here's a look at the fuel tank selector, fuel water separator, and remote oil filter mount.

I used two existing holes in the stringer to mount everything. I hate drilling additional holes in a boat so I made the most of the two already there. I'm happy with the setup. It's clean, accessible, and will make servicing the filters easy.

Getting close! Down to the finishing touches.

The interior still needs a little love, but at this angle it looks good.

Thank you. I just took these couple close ups. I'm going to bring it by the house at some point. I'll swing by your place.

I had to remove the engine to install the pump because it's such tight quarters. While the engine was out I put a different battery box in and loomed up the wiring with braided mesh sleeving.  Now, the pump is installed and the engine is back in for the last time.

Disclaimer: I didn't pull the engine with the plate attached to the intake.

I still need to repair and paint the transom ring, but the nozzle is on and all the hardware is mocked up. I need a couple random bolts then I can bolt it all together for the last time.

It seems like the little details always take the longest.

I want to acknowledge a few people that had a hand in this project.

Lee (69Kona) was the first to get involved. He built a badass engine and pump combo that should get this old hull moving!

Wes (Carrera202) worked his magic on the paint and brought the metal flake back to life. This boat had been getting beat up living on a side yard since '05. Also, thanks for the wiring tools that have made life MUCH easier.

Keith (Crewchief) rebuilt the carb. Rebuild is an understatement because it was GROSS inside. Now, it's sanitary and dialed in for the engine combo.

Joe (Flusher) I appreciate you coming by and scoping out the project!

Great job ! The boat looks so cool. That metal flake cleaned up nice.

The little details are the killer. Especially when stuff goes together in order and you forget something and have to take everything back off again. 🤬

Great write up as well. I always enjoy your project threads.

I appreciate the kind words!!

Life has been hectic lately so if I make it to the opener it'll be a last minute decision.
