Anyone have truck ideas of mounting imco torpedo tanks?

Today I sat at the Columbia Drag Boat Associations' awards ceremony in Lowell Oregon today. I spent the whole weekend at Dexter Lake making my 1975 Schuster Tahiti with a 454ci Chevrolet run right. I started the weekend as a some guy with a jet boat and ended up as a weekend racer with a 18 second boat. Now I know this doesnt seem very special but with the help of Clyde the mechanic and a great friend Jack we managed to knock off 2+seconds off the 1/4 mile time. This was my very first race of any type vehicle.. Im a vintage car guy from olden times....and the first time of joining a real association. The staff and all of the real racers help us and helped to get the boat in shape to run decent. I managed to be given a trophy of sorts for the Lyme Riki Race Team...

I had a blast and us up here in Oregon are keepin the jet boat dream alive...

Got my top end gaskets.  Now I can quit procrastinating and get my engine back together.  Been wanting to try these Titan gaskets for some time.

Picked my pump up from B1. She isn't much to look at from the outside but Chris got it done for me in less than a week. Paint will have to do on the outside for now. The inside looks amazing. FYI, it looked worse than that on the outside when I gave it to B1, I didn't have the time to let them make it look pretty. Can't wait to get her back on the water. Hurry up Thursday.

Attempted to get the boat ready. Didn't quite make it. Hopefully I can find some parts tomorrow and give it one last shot at getting it done for the weekend.
