This is the original problem child jetboat, Ready for a rebuild ;D Blown motor then found out bad stringers, so it went to the back yard and forgotten about until recently.  First we are doing new stringers, so today i started to clean it up a bit.

Yeah yeah i know here he go's again right >:D
Im telling you this is the one, i dont have no mo boats ;)
After stringers are done it's all about the engine. I cant wait to get it back on the water again.

Both boats have paint over gel ;)  and yes i think the Fantasy has some better paint.
 The white on my boat up close dont look so good, kinda like someone used a paint brush on it or just didnt prep it good enough.

Got some more work  done today ;)

Check out my battery box, or what it used to be. I found the battery hold down and transome plug in it. I guess the previouse owner didnt want to lose it.

 Look at all my good fire wood >:D

And im done with cleaning til it comes back from the shop. What a bitch

STOP!
Just run the ******! If you keep tearing shit down, you'll never have that boat on the water.
Put the engine in the boat, run it, see how it feels, have some fun with it, when the season's over
THEN tear into it if you feel like it.

Are you stringers done or almost done? if yes, I think I agree with Lucky; January is almost done; put that good lookin motor on a stand/dolly, fire it up, if it runs good, put it in the boat.

It was nice talking with ya yesterday; looking forward to meeting.

The whole thing is i want to make sure it will run for a season and rings/bearings are just cheap insurance.
But that is the plan, gonna run it and do a complete rebuild next winter ;) Maybe even go a little bigger bore :o with flat tops of course.   Now i know.

Then i ran some #'s and found out this is a 396 block with 454 heads ;D thats good it will lower my compression down to 10-1 or just a little lower. I can use pump gas ;D I talked to 429heads and we are going to work them , even though they are peanut heads they will be fine with the smaller displacement (imo)
