Jet Pumps / How to test..?
« on: August 25, 2009, 10:31:45 AM »
What is the best way to determine the pump condition, without pulling apart..?
(Clearances, etc.)

I had the boat out this weekend (1st time) the 455 olds motor is new & has approx 450 hp & the boat is not lightweight, but acording to GPS we got about 50-55 mph @ 5000 RPM. seems like it should get a little more, & im thinking its the pump.

Any ideas of what to check first.?
Start small, & work my way up.. Also I think a loader would be a good addition.

Thanks in adv

The No Wake Zone / What year is my boat..?
« on: August 13, 2009, 04:23:11 PM »
Ok so ive been to the DMV like 3 times this week trying to ge this new boat in my name, regietration, etc..

Now come to find out everything i have (number wise) is NOT for my boat. lol  :banghead:
My boat has a VIN# scratched into the paint on the back, & the CF# was one digit off from what matched the VIN.

Turns out the VIN is for a 1975 Belmont, but i called the registered owner, & he said his boat is in the backyard.. lol
So now i have a boat that im not even positive it is a Belmont, much less a 1975. :screwy:

I'm going to get it all worked out thru the DMV, I'm not too concerned with what to do there.. but when i tell them what it is, i want to make sure i tell them the right info. (or maybe i should tell them its a 1998 Sanger. LMAO)

So my question is this..
Does anyone know these boats well enough to confirm what it is.?
(it probably is a Belmont, & close to 75, but some more clarification would be nice)

Interior / New seats or re-do old seats.?
« on: August 12, 2009, 12:57:52 AM »
Is it cheaper to re-do old seats.?
I'm guessing it is, except that i've seen complete interiors on Craigslist for pretty cheap.

Where are some good places to look.?
I'm not building a dream boat, just looking to freshen it up a little.

Also whats the best way to clean them.? (that might help a lot)

SoCal Lakes / No Reg on Boat, or Trailer &, No Baffles..?
« on: August 11, 2009, 10:59:32 AM »
Any chance i can get my new boat on water just to check it out.?

I am in the process of all the DMV stuff, but i would love to get it out sooner than the paperwork will be done. ;D
Where would be my best chance.?

Baffles are in the mail from JBP.. should be here by the end of the week.

The No Wake Zone / Hey from.. Long Beach.
« on: August 11, 2009, 12:01:59 AM »
I've been into Jet boats for a long time (had friends who raced boats), but I just bought my own boat..
I was searching for some place to get parts (possibly used) when i came across this site. looks like my new home for everything Jet Boats.!!
I also found "Jet Boat Performance" on here which i am ordering some stuff from tomorrow.

The boat needs some interior & trailer work, but the motor & pump are done.
I'm going to take it up & store it outside of Sacramento for a while, a friend will work on it a little. So it will be tip top for next year. (hopefully i'll get to take it out a few times this year still.)

I'm not going to race it officially, but just for fun.. O0
