Okay, here's an update

First is with the sealer. It's PPG DP40LF with some 401 catayst and a splash of DT860 Reducer to seal everything up. As Greg has pointed out, supplies are limited in this neck of the woods so I settled with what they had (DP40) instead of the DP48 which would have been white and would have allowed the bright white to cover that much quicker

I let that  cook off for 2hrs and then began  laying on the Concept Singlestage. Crappy weather (4" to 6" of rain and wind) makes it so I have to snap the pics inside the shop but hopefully it'll give you an idea of what it looks like. I gotta admit, it looks gray in the pictures but iit's n fact is bright white.

Here it is with the DP40



And here is is with the Concept on it






Next step is the application of the speedcoat and then flip this boat over for the last time (hopefully)

Thanks for watching this come together.......John

This pic is a great example of what it's all about. A little bit of wrenching going on and a whole lot of bullchitting and beer drinking!  

Very cool project, keep the pics coming......John

what im getting at is if it were me, i would exhaust every possibility to fix the trailer to prevent this happening again before putting a rub rail on that beautiful boat.

I gotta side with Brad on this one. That boat is beyond beautiful. Gotta be something that can be engineered so you dont have to put a rail on it. Good luck with it regardless and glad to hear it didnt get into the artwork

Ah nutz! That sucks but at least it doesnt appeared to have been in an area where there is artwork done.  By the way, that boat is incredible. The attention to detail is very nice. Congrats and good luck with the little fix ahead of you......John

Thanks Beerjet. I would really like to search this concept out as in theory I think it's a great idea. Clearly I dont think the "conventional" mod's will produce the same results as a Berk intake but deep down, I really think the concept is good.  With that said, I've been wrong more times in life than I've ever been right....

Stay tuned and thanks again..........john

Thanks Greg. Appreciate that compliment.  I'm pretty much standing down till the paint and speedcoat I ordered comes in. Then all hell breaks loose.
Can't wait to get some paint on there that I'm not planning on sanding off (for a while  ;D)







Also for those of you who are interested (which I suspect is none besides me), here's a picture of the "spoon" that is molded into the stock Panther intake.

Crap, couldn't stand it. Layed some epoxy and cloth in there. Layed on some PPG DP40 epoxy to seal it all up and I think all I'll need is a thin skim of some Evercoat Rage Gold to make her purdy. Bound to be better if there's no gap to fill with goey stuff.

Here's a pic of it with another layer of glass and epoxy and then another after the DP40 applicaton...  gotta love that itch from fiberglass dont you?

Prior to getting ready to shoot some single stage on the bottom I thought I would mock up the old housing just for grins and I saw a gap between the hull and the housing. It's located dead center and the tightens up to no gap on the sides. The drill bit is a 3/64 and it's a touch smaller than that to give you an idea.

Now I realize that we bed the housing in some goey stuff but is that gap gonna be too much? I'm tempted to close it up but thought I would run it by you all and see if Rork's being too picky again..........

Also kinda wonder if I found my cavatation problem on the old pump, hmmmm......

Here's a couple pictures

Well I'm new to to site, so let the hazzing begin,  :P

First off, my name is Rebel,
and thanks to many of you, whom don't even know it, have helped me finish a few loose ends to get this boat back into the water. Vintage Jet Boats are not as common in Canada as they are for you guys. So this site has helped me out alot!

now...  for the pics!



anyone notice the ihba sticker  8)


can't promiss I will be quiet from now on...
but I know I will keep coming back  ;)

just one more touch to be added from Tom at JBP and I'm ready to play!
but like many of you know...  more work to do than just that, gauges, steering wheel, trailer...  well guess thats it realy

ok, ok,  maybe next year a Blower  :o

Rebel (aka Rob)

Hey Rob, welcome to the board. Killer looking boat.
We've got a surprising strong contingent of jetboaters here in the Northwest.  We'll have to get you to hope the ferry and come to the mainland so you can meet up with us on one of the runs. There's a huge one already planned for Labor Day weekend at Potholes in Eastern Washington (first weekend in September). You should try to shoot for that at the very least. There were 57 jet boats there this year. Sounds like some of the Northern California gang along with some Oregon folks are coming up for next year as well so we should blow up that count of 57 pretty easy.
Keep in touch.....John....Silverdale, Washington

my pops has full kidney failure and is on dyalisis 3 times a week, you can see the band-aids on his arm. the waiting list is 7 years long for a transplant and he has been waiting 2. He is on borrrowed time so i spend as much time as i can with him, because the inevitable is coming :'(

My thoughts are with you and your family but enjoy every minute while you can.  Plus, he did a great job on your boat.

Sorry Tommy, I've been traveling on business and didnt see your emails and stuff till this morning. The truck in the background is my son's Ian lowride. I'll let him know about it.

Keep a spot mowed in your pasture for us. You just might get sick of us.

Wow! You did a great job on the interior. I may pester you a bit when I get that far. Good tip about leaving a band unresined for the staples to go into. I would have never thought of that. John

Looks really good Tommy. Why doesnt Rhonda run that in RR class? She'd have a gas...... Besides, you've got a certain blower motor going together.....

That looks awesome.That's exactly what I need to do to mine.What's the best way to cover up the bass boat flake? Also what do you use to fill stress crack? I have a 6 inch da sander.Do you think it's the best tool for sanding the boat? Sorry for all the questions,but thanks for the help.You can see my boat here.It's the Trophy custom.


As far as advice from me, I'll be the first to admit I dont know anything and stumble my way through everything I do. Just ask Tommy...

With that said, I'd be happy to help you anyway I can but I'm sure others on this board have more knowledge than I do. Please let me know if there's something I can do to help.......John

Yep Tommy. This is a damn good board, just a looooong way from home...

looks like u got a few toys up there.....a layed out chevy extra cab, and a monster lifted 4x4, and a huge azz garage, you could just about work on anything there....looks great and good luck
!!!!!

Thanks but show me one garage that isnt stuffed to the rafters with stuff. mine sure it. As far as the rigs in the background, they're my sons. We put a 6 link cantilever air bag setup in the back and fast bags up front off of an engine driven pump. The blazer's got a rumpity 406 sbc with 1ton running gear, no interior but a couple buckets. Both are pretty damn cool but I tend to go to the older stuff to match my age



Of course, he's trying to get me to go this route now which I gotta admit I think looks pretty cool



 ;D ;D ;D ;D
