Boats For Sale / 76 southwind cruiser
« on: November 12, 2022, 10:31:20 am »
Selling my baby... hurts but recent developments force me to sell.

472 BBF (50 HRS.)fully Rebuilt with forged internals - crank. Have all the paperwork and receipts.

Fully rebuilt pump with powder coat 12jc- a imp.
Intake powder coated and reset to hull.

Interior in great condition, hull shows some stress cracks and small imperfections but look great for its age and use. New trailer tires and bearings, trailer could use paint, bunks are still good.

I have over 8k invested in her and countless time and effort. I'm realistic on the value of these old labors of love,, ive enjoyed it for a couple years so just trying to get back what I can. I'll post more detailed pictures of the motor pump hull and interior when I get home.

Arcade / Belgian malinois needs rescue
« on: October 31, 2022, 07:54:36 pm »
Giving this a long shot but this 1-2 year old male belgian malinois and his female pup ran into my yard Friday morning and the asshole owners down the street from me don't want them anymore I already have 3 dogs 4 cats and a bunny, I really need a good home for the male at least as I have all females. He is super sweet and well behaved just needs a good friend for a new owner, I've given both of them deworming treatments and parvo shots. Anyone who can please help out  it would be much appreciated.

I/O's / Advantage 22pcat/ Cobra touch
« on: July 16, 2022, 09:22:51 pm »
Pretty much what my weekend looks like, everybody hears Cobra and thinks I can work on their OMC..good thing I don't mind picking up what others won't but I'll tell you pulling this 7.4 out of this 22 party cat was a little tricky, had to recruit a youngster to remove the starter hot and motor mount bolts on one side it was crazy tight down there. Going to be installing a brand new 7.4, rebuild and seal bravo 3 w/2 inch spacer as well as a bunch of other things that need to be replaced. Sorry for all the prop shit but nobody ever calls me to work on their
 jet boats ;( hahahah well one guy does and hopefully we can do a nice off season rebuild of his tdeck.

Just some of the beasts I've been so blessed to get to work on, an opportunity arose and I took it. Doesn't even feel like work when you turn your hobby into a 9-5, kinda missing my old jet boat tho might be out at perris tomorrow.

Jet Pumps / Intake nightmare
« on: July 06, 2021, 10:29:30 pm »
The Sea goin epoxy did not cure properly or something but it forsure had leaks again, made a huge mess, a ton of work removing it and im back to square one. Ive called every shop within a hundred miles with no luck.dont know what to do this thing will have to go into storage till someone will touch it,  im out of options with this boat. Hopefully i can find something else to throw the fresh 12j &460 into in the meantime whenever that may be.

Jet Pumps / Berk intake install
« on: June 01, 2021, 06:04:43 pm »
Does anybody know someone ready and available to do this job?! Boat is prepped, intake is ready, money is there. yet seems everyone is too busy or just plain doesnt want to do it...

If not pray for me cuz im going to attempt the install myself this weekend, more than a lil nervous bout this one so any advice, photos or more preferably video guidance on installing this would be highly appreciated as well.

Looks like a couple cheap projects coming up, anybody know what brand boats these are? I know the one has a drake jet i think but i have an extra 12j i could swap? If no one picks these up by tomorrow ill probably take on at least one, maybe both.

79 rowdy open bow '20 jet boat


Had a bbf and a berk 12j.

Current reg. Title included.

Hull has no major damage and is salvageable, i just don't have the time, energy, money or space to do so but it would be a shame to have to take it to the dump by the end of the month.
I can deliver within 50 miles of perris ca.

I just know the sound it makes when sucks down gasoline 750 dp tuned and ready, see ya at the lake tomorrow. The next adventure is going to be the pump, either having mine built by place diverter or just buying this one and install myself which i would do anyway with pd too.this old timer in sun city sell alot of jet boat shit anybody ever deal with him? Seems legit and maybe hell buy mine in exhange.

SoCal Lakes / 12jc-a jetovator
« on: February 25, 2021, 09:17:48 am »
I have the manual jetovator on the single bowl 12jc with aluminum a impeller, everything is sound and operating as it should( no vibrations, slipping, noises) has plenty of power and delivery from take off to pegged out but the place diverter doesnt seem to be throwing a rooster upwards at all.when its all the way up it throws the water more back and outward rather than up as ive seen others do with the same setup(different boat of course) ive adjusted the heim joint and lever so the nozzle is up as far as it will go,i had someone else drive while i observed it underway and the only thing i could think of is the pump looks to be under the water line more than ive seen others of similar design. Not sure if thats got something to do with it but im trying to get this setup to work as best so if anyone ones got some tips or tricks id really appreciate it.

SoCal Lakes / Elsinore has the better views anyway
« on: February 23, 2021, 04:09:35 pm »
The water may be greener but Perris decided to be extra critical today so i took my buisness to elsinore as usual, perris has become too much of a hassle in typical california fashion.

Got the big yellow bird gps'd today and its wayy better than i expected-

 67 mph @4800 rpm

I cant wait to do a few more tweaks and take her for all shell give!
