Hey guys, I went to visit my jet today, it is indeed a jacuzzi WJ.  I was talking to my friend about the fitment problem and we werent sure if it makes a difference but my transom adapter is the 12 degree one, it says it on the housing. He gave me a normal one and Im going to see if it works better and sits flush, because I REALLY DONT want to use the crappy adapter plate.

I took some pics.....

Intake



hole in back of boat


under side of intake



transom adapter



Crappy ass adapter plate




so what do u guys think I should do?

You already have a loader assembly in your intake, its a two place for a Berkely. If everything else in in cool condition, I would have a new adapter plate made and let it roll ;D.

Unless you want to make a killer out of it, then I would upgrade to a 12JG or similar for unlimited parts availability. 8)

If you want to put together a list, I can help you out with a good Berkely "core" for  a good price and all you would have to do is buy a master rebuild kit and she'd be pimpin'. O0

i actually lined up the jacuzzi transom adapter without the adapter plate and it fits fine, it JUST covers the hole for the berkely up, prolly by about an 1/8 of an inch, Im going to try and use it and use some good sealer and see what happens. You think I should be good?

 Just a thought, but would a Berk or Dominator transome adapter fit on a Jacuzzi bowl ?  You could always grind the name off.   ???

Your Golden, If it were me, I would try to utilize a Berkely adapter housing, modified to work with the Jacuzzi stuff, cant be that hard to do and would look sano 8)

As far as your loader, those actually work pretty well. :)

Good luck! Cool little project.

 Try to borrow one to see if it fits (when you can put the pump back in the boat), there might be a problem with the height of the bowl.  Because of the Berk intake and Jacuzzi pump the bowl might be at a different height than normal for either transome adapter.  :-\

Sometimes if you bust your ass on something and it works out you have a real strong appreciation for it,
and on the flip side of it, if it doen't work out, take the knowlege you have gained and run like hell :)

Not trying to blow sunshine up your ass, but this should work out great!

I have not ever and probably never will have a new super trick boat, my stuff has always been junk that I keep tweaking until it is what I would have bought if I could, the stupid part is, I sell them and start over, so its obviously kind of a sickness :screwy:

Again good luck!

I dont like buying stuff thats already nice and ready. I like taking it and adding my own touch to it, plus that way if something takes a crap, youll know exactly whats going on because you put it together, lol theres no manual for the stuff we build hehe.

Quik story before I go check my eyelids for leaks, so I'm at the dump (transfer station), and this dude shows up with an 18' jetboat on a trailer full of garbage, I'm thinking "what an A-hole, treating a boat that way", so he proceeds to tie this ting off to one of the concrete columns in the drop off area, now my curiosity takes over and I say " hey what are you doing" well he was going to shitcan this 1984 Bahner, which looked pretty clean (nicer than my boat), curiosity again, "why", he tells me it has a crack in the side and can't be fixed. So I paid him $50 (his dump fee) and another $20 (gas) to drop this thing off at my house (less trailer), two months later we were skiing behind it at Lake Shasta :sly:

Sold it for $4500 the next year.
BTW the crack was in the gelcoat and cost me $240 to fix at a glass shop which I traded with a rig job on the owners bass boat. (why do you think my boats name is White Trash)

See ya
