1975 DiMarco Circle Boat Project "SoCalJetBoats Exclusive"
« on: November 09, 2013, 05:30:28 pm »
Alright guys, as promised. Here is my new project. I will only be posting updated here on SoCalJetBoats because well........ I am tired of the other sites, and all the bull crap.

After the demise of my first boat. Southwind 18. I got an amazing check back from my insurance company and immediately started looking for a replacement boat. "thanks state farm"

I Found an add on craigslist up in santa barbara listed as "jet boat"
I talked to an older guy. After talking to him all i can say is "GOLD".

1975 DiMarco Circle boat Weighed at 400lbs weight it when i got home with the intake tanks and calgo and gauges 423 lbs.
It has 2X4 oak stingers and 1/4 inch round oak in the strakes.
it came with

*bitchen stainless russle tanks
*Calgo steering
* Split bowl berkley jet with a stainless b- impeller
*Shoe and ride plate set up
* Set of BBC Bassett headers "that are on my SWTD"
*seats that are ready to fall apart
* An awesome competition trailer with WHITE WALL TIRES!!

The guy cut me an awesome deal! 1400$ for everything.

the only bad thing is that there are stress cracks all over the deck and drivers side.
What ever. It doesn't bother me too much.

The Power Plant will be the Ford 460 out of the southwind 18

First thing i did is pulled the jet and it went to B1 for new bearings and wear ring, new 2* back cut shoe and loader is on its way.

Most likely will set the pump back. Just dont know how far yet.

Next thing was to put new rails in the boat. We went with a full rail deal this time. Got motor plates from tom at Jet boat performance. I used countersunk stringer washers and countersunk allen bolts for hardware.

thats as far as ive gotten.  More to follow.

Is this boat #3 in your stable Jake or is this just the replacement for the total?  I could be wrong but I think that cracking or checking on the deck could be from heavy or extra thick gel when they sprayed it.  Doesn't look like it goes into the glass does it?

Yeah it puts it at 3. The Mach 1 is mine and my dads boat. So more like 2 and 1/2
The gel is cracked into the glass iam sure. I don't care right now. I'll get it re done at some point but for now it's fine. The owner b4 me had it siting in the sun with nothing but a blue tarp on it for 10 years. So iam sure that had something to do with it.

Alright boys and girls.
The motor went in this afternoon. The Intake is staying in the stock location for now and is set at 3.7* in relation to keel. The motor went in at 3.9* and 26 inches from the transom. That should do the job for the drive line, it should be around 15 inches long.  The stock front sump oil pan in about an Inch from the floor.

the second thing i got done today was the pump brace.
I am trying to keep the rigging in this boat as clean and light as possible. I want to keep all the bolts alan head  and either counter sunk in the aluminum or use counter sunk stringer washers.

The brace is made from 1/4 inch aluminum, i am only using drill bits, hole saw, and a jig saw for all the "milled looking cut out"

Looks real nice Jake.  So what you got in the motor?  You seem to be rigging for some decent HP.  I was trying to look under that scoop but I see nothing.  The scoop kind of reminds me of a 6 year old wearing daddies cowboy hat.  ::)

Greg, its a 480hp Dove 2a2 heads. Its a Ferd. It pushed that green 18 southwind to about 75 or so @5200. The Previous owner had told me the area where the intake is set is very thin. Less than a half inch. Thats the reason for the pump brace.
I was going to run that same scoop on the SWTD but didn't. Its a bit too big for a single 850 but, its what i got for now. I am working on a scoop tray right now. My old man said this after noon "that scoop reminds me of darth helmet" "its to big"

Looks sweet, I really like it when the scoop is mounted low to the point it's almost sitting on the intake. Hides a lot of the ugly and well let's be honest ferds is some ugly motors. Move it far enough forward so you can hide the distributor and mount it as low as possible. And then when you want to sell it let me know so I can come get it.

Well after the long weekend i got a few things done on the DiMarco.
I continued the Milled look on the Rail kit, man that was a lot of work. Well worth it though.
Also counter sunk the mount blocks. I really love the look of all the counter sunk hardware so far! :screwy: :banghead: ;D ;D ;D
