Hows the Family ?  Gt can confirm but this Sanger IMO is a no sh*t race boat ,never was a "laker"  has some very unique features watch the transformation in the next 72 hrs ,if all goes well it'll be "turn key"  We decide to try to Knock it out if possible tommorow ! (got my HPC Econo drag headers today Stay tuned !

Chromey we could make it a center seat and steering "Jobby' for ya Bro 1

Yeah OC, the Superjet is a 19' family boat that were one of the most popular jets of the time, the boat I sold Tom is only a 17' hull, there were quite a few Sanger jets with that distinctive molded through-piece, I didn't mean to sound condescending in my earlier post, but that little Sanger is quite "different" than any other jet I've ever owned...I tried to buy that boat for 7 years, then when I finally got it, I was not in a position to do a damn thing with it :banghead:

My family situation has gotten complicated.

Anyway have fun! ;D

Title: Re: Sanger circle boat
Post by: jet boat performance on July 15, 2008, 09:06:33 pm
Thats the center line length (minus the pod)  :D

How to Measure Length

A motorboat is measured from end to end along the centerline or parallel to the centerline. The measurement is from the outside of the hull and does not include outboard motors, brackets, other attachments or similar fittings.

Title: Re: Sanger circle boat
Post by: jet boat performance on July 16, 2008, 08:41:04 am
Ralph my buddy Glen scammed the cool Berk (long) droopy ,so as theres very little adjustment in the Calgo we had to :"lengthen" things to make everything come back together ,enter my "mad scientist kid " , he digs around in his "secret locker" of rat holed cool goodies and pulls out that "device" which made the whole shootin match fit !! That little motor BTW should make 400 hp and the jets got a lot of custom internals , if the boat works well and handles etc there make be a Blower motor in the works
I agree re this project ! we really appreceate the opportunity to rig this old race boat it has some very cool and unique features not the least of which is the bottom which is very different than my other 18 Sanger, I have as well as the complete Balsa inlay and full stringers (which I belive are unique to Sanger jets) Tom

Like my Dad said the calgo wasn't very cooperative in the adjustment area due to some "custom" cable ends.   But one of the things that has been fun/challenging at times is trying to come as close to the original set-up as possible.  The nozzle is now withing a fraction of an inch of where it was before and the rear of the engine is less than two inches of where it was before (the difference being the small block).  We were able to get the engine forward by utilizing a Berkeley JA pump shaft and a custom center section for the h-bar.

No motor, the thing towed really well, Tom the boat knew it was going to a good home, so sort of like being on a mission from the Almighty himself. :-\

So, do you need that loooong snoot? I left your buddy a message today.

Think brackets like that would hold up to the stress of a BBC? Really thinking about something like that for my sled down the road. Don't have to worry about too many clearance problems.

Those are BBC brackets (front Mounts), if you look just behind them you'll see the ugly ass adapter blocks I made to space the SBC out to fit in BBC location.   This boat is BBC ready, and may not be far away from having one ;)

        can be launched. :o

4th    I hate breaking cams in!!! Initial fire to 2500rpm no mufflers, hoping nothing goes wrong, or neighbors wanting you to shut it off. It always makes me nervous/exited.

Is the vertical brace for the steering? ( stringer to dash )
Title: Re: Sanger circle boat
Post by: jet boat performance on August 22, 2008, 08:11:05 am
Paul Thought that with that much steering column and that much leverage on the small base of the Calgo post it needed something ,it stiffened the dash a lot.  After Long Beach I  re -realized how fragile these old boats could be  Tom
Title: Re: Sanger circle boat
Post by: AA/Paul on August 22, 2008, 08:59:21 am

Tom I have not forgot.Thanx.
The curved motormounts...if ya need some let me know Dim. to stringer. I already have programs for BBC and SBC race car motor plates. It would be easy to do.
Title: Re: Sanger circle boat
Post by: Brad @ SCJB on August 22, 2008, 09:07:21 am
I would look into a different method of strengthening the dash. That setup would make me REAL nervous. The last thing you want is getting tangled up in hardware when being pitched from the boat. Even a stringer mount cav plate handle makes me nervous....or even a place diverter handle (as long as they are) between the legs? forget it!  :o

dont get me wrong, i like the ingenuity, but the safety aspect should be looked at as well.
Title: Re: Sanger circle boat

If my boat had a steering brace like that I would have broke my leg when I flew out of the boat in Long Beach.

Not a good idea IMO.

Ron ,yes the Pedal (and the "halon") are thru bolted with countersunk stnls screws , not uncommon for some older boats , my Schiada was done the same way (talk about crowded cockpits)  ;D

They put a cable on the boat to the trailer that shows the boat had not been off the trailer so it will not need reinspection for that particular lake. Kinda cheesey, but whatever...I think we should just all build a boat bad enough that is scares the mussels into complete extermination >:D

Think about it, we never had the mussel problem before the sound restrictions............Just saying ::)
Title: Re: Sanger circle boat
Post by: jet boat performance on September 08, 2008, 08:19:36 am
Ralph the cable is just as Glenn described ,as long as you dont go to another lake or ?? you don't have to be re-cleaned '

RE the Sanger  Rhonda and I went to SA yesterday with Hondo Hal hung with a loose knit new local group that call themselves " Outlaw boaters"  The Sanger now quickly finds 60+ with part throttle ;D but still sets up "porpious" that requires down pedal to correct (back to the drawing board) I did turn the boat at speed and was Hella impressed ,never felt like it would slip out or spin

On another note V-drive Dennis showed up with his Hondo T deck "play boat" Blown BBC after twisting my arm  ;) He gave me a vest and 2 gals of fuel , showed me how to work the air bottle control and new hydraulic cav set up said..."go drive it" made two 1/4 mile passes and came back with a huge smile (tattle tale says 8100, est100 +) Definatley one of the high points of my day

8100 RPM >:D Bet that swelling took a while to go down.... :sly:

Hey Tommy, if I send you a loader for the Sanger would you try it?  I think the pump is over loading, two questions though.
1. Does the porpoise go away if you nail the gas?

2. Does the porpoise come in quick, or slowly and predictably?


If it comes in slowly and predictably, the extended pump fins could be creating a "low pressure" area under the rear of the boat causing the boat to "teeter totter" on the center point of the hull, it will not go away unless you stand on it, pulling the boat back down in the water giving it something to climb, or faking a hook with some ride plate adjustment, which I hate doing.

I think the engine being forward accentuates this horribly. The loader I want you to try is a plate type and was run on a River runner and cured this exact symptom. You might even have one in those rafters of yours, it needs to be a plate type loader and not very aggressive, this will "bypass" a lot of water at speed and keep the pressure stable under the bottom of the intake, it may take away a little of the out of hole performance (can you say inducer?), but would be worth it in the long run I think.

let me know if you want to give it a whirl (no puhn intended).

Don't be afraid to tell me I'm full of crap though too, its been a while.

Once loaded this thing would work great, it will probably turn hard enough to scare you. >:D

Glenn appreciate the input  I think were on the right track .. this is the "back to the drawing board" measure we took and just for the FYI value this is the bottom were dealing with ,clearly this boat was designed to hual ass and turn left more after the T&T tommorow Tom

 Looks like your trying to tame a wild animal there Tom.   Its a race boat hull , it only needs to have 2 throttle settings (on and off), stop trying to turn it into a cruiser .   :screwy:

We removed all the "extentions" to bring the jet back (no droop no Bowl extension hard ware) installed the standard Berk nozzle adaptor and removed the "Loader" (installed) a rock grate for now esentially putting the boat/jet to stock with the exception of a 3* up wedge and the place diverter The boat was very different still carries the bow a little high, turns like its on train tracks and leaves like a Flatty with minimul bow rise (mash the down pedal ,hammer the throttle) ;D very enjoyable trip. "A" impeller alows minimum plane speed of about 2700, tryed to keep within the lake speed limit  ;) 85% or better of the "Dolphin" action is gone . Still requires "down pedal" to settle out typical porpoise that begins after a wake crossing etc ,dont belive we had the boat much past 55 , and yes we have no quaggas I'm happy to report more to follow !

Sounds like you need a better lake to test the boat on. ;) With all the speed limits, Quagga muscles, and rough water bs. :banghead:


So, do you think you can get rid of the rest of the porpoise, or are you just going to leave it at that?

Not that Jim Rich's boat was a gem or anything but he always had to wedge his droop down . Cant remember how much though .

On a side note , lots of the others are not running anything as far as wedge goes . Bowl/adapter/nozzle thats it . Great job too .

Just for reference...... on Jim's boat we can cruise 65-70 mph, over wakes, turns, weird river spots, and it has no trouble. And that's usually with the diverter up a few notches.

Just saying the two boats with two different attributes probably need two different set ups

Droop with a 2 degree down wedge. Don't know exactly where the diverter is set.

I know I tried the same set up on my Hondo at first, it didn't like it, it would drag the diverter to hard at down positions, so it worked better with the upwedge....

Your right Tony the boats are indeed similar but very different ,the UFO is a full stringer boat ,the bottom had been "cut out" and deepened nearly the entire length of the keel with added rocker (see photo) Jim and I talked about this at LB and compared notes ,I also compared it to my yellow  SJ alot of the issues I've been dealing with are as you might imagine ,directly related to that bottom mod I think we have a good handle on it now and I'm really pleased with the boat and belive it has a solid future and will be  competetive  Tom

 It would be nice to see another one of these old survivors.  Did you see the one for sale over on PB ? 

 I would like to upgrade mine to the adjustable plates.  I think it would make it a better all around boat.

I'll admit, he's making that boat really shine.  I can only imagine what it looked like when you first saw it Glen. The colors are incredible.  The driveway was like grand central station yesterday with all sorts of friends topping by and checking the boat out and everyone (even ones that dont know what a jetboat is) loved it.

He still needs to freshen up my old 468 that served as my mule motor for the Brendela and then he'll be on the water soon......

Okay, last time I'm gonna post up a pic on this thread.  He can start his own but Glenn and Tommy, you can't believe what he's managed to do with this old girl.

He went back at it yesterday and color sanded it throughout with 2000 grit, and then buffed it out again with a number of different products and the thing looks like a million bucks.

(https://www.socaljetboats.com/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fi63.photobucket.com%2Falbums%2Fh157%2Fjrork%2FDSCN0656.jpg&hash=fdaf0b4a997ab9a34a7e5f878df5d901a1658057)


Founds some more cool stuff yesterday too.  The bottom of the trailer has signed "UFO II" on it as well.  And all the wire is braided together and follows the angles with pefect 90 degree bends.  

Somebody spent a ton of time on this thing back in the day......... Thanks again guys and we'll do you proud I promise.


He's just about done with he truck and once done we're gonna roll that out and put the Sanger in the shop with my boat so it can enjoy some heat instead of setting in the cold ass RV port.

So the motor is in and he's been flying at this thing trying to make the big Labor Day bash up here.  With a little luck, he may make it.

He's fabbed everything up and now has busted it back down to take some parts to the powder coater.

Ian made some aluminum rails that will ride in front of the Cav plate cross bar to mount the MSD and fuel pump/regulator.

He had that powercoated by Austin (Wajetboy online) and it looks bitchin!!!

Since the red blocks didnt really match very well with the reds in the paint, he just had those coated as well.   The color is Harley Black Pearl and it's beautiful!!!!!   If somebody needs something coated, let me know and you can see what Austins prices are compared to down south.  Dont know if it would save you folks something or not but he sure did a great job.

Thanks FU. There's no way I could ever describe how proud I am of this kid. He works hard, keeps his nose clean and is genuinely a good young man. Now how he turned out like that can only be attributable to having lived with me serving as a bad example and realizing he did want to turn out like that!!!  ;D

Tom- I was simply trying to save John & Ian some headaches when I made the comment about the MSD location.  Is it really necessary to post that picture up? If you're trying to prove me as ignorant or wrong, then do it in a factual stated argument, posting up that pic is the equivalent of sticking your tongue out at me.  I know people run MSD boxes in that spot all the time, I also know more than 1 that's had it shaken to death from the vibration.

No worries guys.  This is an MSD out of my spare parts bin so the cost is nuthin and I have a set of rubber isolators in the bin as well.  They might help and if it does take a crap......we can find a new spot. No biggee, just trying to get it to the big Labor Day bash.  We'll have all winter to fine tune and revise as needed.

Thanks Tommy..........congrats again (even though you are ahead of me)...

Here is my update for the day..... currently gapping the spark plugs and going over all the fittings to make sure they are all tight! That must meen that I'm close to making VROOM VROOM noises!! YAHOOOO!
Again thank you to EVERYONE who has helped me collect parts for this build. 6 months ago buying the parts to put the boat together wouldnt have been an issue. Then the downhill spiral at work hit hard. The boat would not be at the point that it is right now without the help of you guys (and my dad with a garage full of boat stuff!) I cant wait to get the boat out on the water with you people! FINALLY!

Thanks, Ian

We threw the boat in the water for the first time today to make sure it floats before our big event next weekend. Didnt want to tow it all that way only to have it not run.

The old girl lit at the touch of the switch.  It was a fun (and proud) moment to watch my son hit the water with his own ride bought and paid for by his hard work. 

It took him a while to figure the ride/cavplate/diverter setup but soon began to get a better understanding of it and made it work really well.

He got it to 5200 rpm and it was very happy at that speed and rode great with just a touch of down pedal once in awhile.

Many thanks to everyone up here and on this site for the help and encouragement. Also gotta send my luv again to Rhonda, Josh and even Tommy for all the help.............john

Here's his post...

Quote from: Gonnashow";p="31681
First off, let me say thank you to all of you guys for helping me get this damn thing done... one week before mardon! It is much appreciated. The boat ran, well... perfect. If "boring" could be used as a good term, this would be where is applies. Right off the trailer, it ran very very well. I believe i got my moneys worth out of the boat today alone. I have very little into it, and the results far exceeded my expectations. Its no drag boat, but its fast enough to scare me a bit! The cavitation plates are a trip! They completely change the attitude of the boat, from nose high, to bow dragging at the same rpm and diverter input. it'll take awhile to perfect, but i made a big improvement in just the ammount of time running the boat today! I cannot wait for mardon now! yahoo! Thanks again!

now the fun stuff! Pictures!

Hi Glenn, This is Ian.

When i first got to boat up on a plane, i drove the boat around for awhile with the diverter 2 notches up from all the way down, the boat was very "driveable" there. As i got more and more comfortable with it, i went up on the diverter, it got lighter as it went up until the 3rd notch from all the way up. That is where the porpoise began. The first time i experienced it, it was pretty violent. I had no clue it was coming, ran it up to about 4000rpm took two hops and completely unloaded the pump. Thats when the fun started.

I began playing with the plates, at first i was unsure of how much the plates could really do for the attitude of the boat. As time went on, i got into the plates, and got the boat to ride flat with no porpoise even with the diverter all the way up, much to my suprise.

 I never layed into it for a long time, best i saw was 5200rpm headed back to the boat launch. But that was with no porpoise at all. I really think i can dial the porpoise out completly with a little bit of seat time. For now im VERY happy with it. I have the rideplate set at 2.25 degrees up from keel. That will be my baseline.

Thanks for the kind words! and thank you JBP for EVERYTHING! i promise to continue bringing this old girl back to life!
Ian

OK guys, OC2Vegas just took some pics of his 1979 Superjet for me. And when i started to compare the two... man did that open a can of worms!!!

Im just throwing this out there, BUT what i believe is that the UFO may have a Sprint bottom (along with added drop keel) with a SuperJet deck. From what i have read throughout the research is that the sprint has a very narrow "cockpit" especially back by the motor, and has a longer deck than the super jets. The deck of the UFO definatly matches every other superjet ive seen, but the bottom seems to be different, more then just the drop keel. it appears that the super jets have very shallow lifting strakes, where-as the UFO has very deep and "swoopy" strakes, much like the sprint that i have a picture of. i will post a few pictures for you to give your input on. Just thinking outloud on this one!!

NOW, this is a pic of Sprint. Notice the very narrow engine compartment, and different bottom then the superjets above.

Ok, now from seeing those pictures. here are some of the UFO. It is hard to get pictures that show the bottom like the others posted because of the cav plates but i think these will do just fine. The bottom sure like like a sprint bottom to me, and the boat definatly has the superjet deck. Could it really be possible that the boat was special ordered with that combo or am i just dreaming?

Also note that the superjets picture above all have two stringers for each side of the boat (3 lifting strakes per side), and the sprint has one(two lifting strakes per side).......... the UFO has one stringer per side(and two lifting strakes per side).....

FYI: im counting the outside edge of the boats with the lip as a lifting strake also, mainly because i dont know what else it would be called.

It is definately not a superjet, I have known that all along, but I never caught engine bay deal...I thought it was a one off, never thought to put 2 and 2 together.....Our Superjet had some similarities but the floor did not work out how the UFO II's did, good catch John...

Talked about that boat with Tom last year at Long Beach. It's possible it might have been a "promotional" race boat.... Sanger wanted to sell the Super Jets more because of their space, but wanted the speed of the Sprint double concave bottom. Also the earlier SuperJets had the double concave bottoms as well, I think they switched in 1976? JMO from what I've heard around the campfire.

Thanks guys! I guess i wasnt too far off on my idea then! Id love to know more about this thing! The more and more i find, the more and more i realize how much it truely is different! I love it!! Also, have any of you heard of a guy that goes by the name.... "Sano" Don La Franchi? in the process of cleaning the boat up i took a few pics of the very very faded pinstriping on the dash, then took them to microsoft paint and tried to redo what the striping once said. this is what i found. " PREPARED BY: "SANO" DON LA FRANCHI" the word "sano" is hidden under the gold plate for the dash brace                                 Thanks again, Ian

Ian, just to make things a little more confusing, that second pic is a custom sprint. Jim Rich they were made with both bottoms. Another person to hit up over at PB is Harlin Orrin, he was the shop foreman from the early to mid 70's. He designed the double bubble 20' cruiser, retooled the shovel nose's into pickle forks and may have had something to do with these.

Post by: jet boat performance on August 30, 2009, 09:54:30 am
The UFO had distinct similarities to my Older Sprint when I had them side by side BUT.. Josh and I still believe the keel for nearly the entire length of the hull is "dropped" about 1/4 to 3/8 inch, look real hard at the approximate 20 wide section of the center (betwen the Balsa sections ) to see this!  Harlan is by far the "man" but the person I was working with that gave me the most insight into this was Jeff Bennett (the guy is a boat bottom God) Tom

That's a good tip Tommy.  I hadn't thought of pestering Jeff about this.  I've pm'd Harlan and Billy B but will give Jeff a try as well (specially since you've already discussed with him).

Skips Precision Marine in Redlands is a couple shops down from mine (I hang out over there at lunch to get away once in a while  ;D ).  Anyway, Skip and His Brother Troy ran Riverside Boat & marine in the 70's-80's and was the Sanger dealer in the area.  Both were involved with race boats at that time and might know something about it.  I''ll try to drag him down to the shop to show him some pics because he don't do computers.

Hah!  We're at the lake and he's running the piss out of this boat. So much so that he ran himself out of fuel at the other end of the reseviour!!!

He's getting definatley getting the hang of it and we continue to try different settings.

We have some onboard camera footage from his little helmet camera setup and we'll try to post that up when we get home. Thanks again Tommy and JetBoatPerformance. He's gotten nuthin but compliments (we have 144 boats here) and one guy wanting to buy it. What a great time.

Here's some footage of a pass past me.  The water looks smooth but it has some rollers that drove everyone crazy.

This was with the diverter up and you can see the bouncing till he leans on it and then it starts to carry the nose.  Maybe a bit more power needed???  Obviously he could lose most of it by lowering the diverter or touching the plates but nevertheless, we're getting there..

Thanks guys.  Yep, we're getting close.  Fighting fuel pressure issues though.  I hate to mess up those beautiful plates but I may need to clearance it so we can run a mechanical pump.  Measuring the Carter 170gph I have, we all we need is a slight slot to accomadate the wide flange and it would fit.  Get rid of that electric "is it gonna work or not" worry.

John,

What is an "electric worry"...I have a Holley Blue and a regulator on mine and I absolutely love it...

It is hooked to a three pole oil pressure switch and if the engine dies, so does the pump...

I have been running these for several years without issue...

If you are worried about leaning her out, your pump is too little or turned down to far...7 lbs. at the seat..hands down...

Just curious, not busting your balls, boat looks badass BTW  :thumbup:

Post by: jrork on September 09, 2009, 10:41:43 pm
Bust away Glenn. I'm still learning all this stuff. We're running a Holley :HP150 billet pump and a Holley regulator. Other than a short section of 3/8" rubber from each tank to a tee, its all -8AN to the pump, regulator and to the carb.
The reason I'm getting concerned is that it worked perfect leading up to the weekend and all day Friday. From that point on it has great pressure (8 or so (it drifts a touch)) until he leans on it. From the is lays down to less tha 2 pounds and the boat won't get up on plane,  Makes for a looong idle across that reservior.
With some time we'll swap out the last of the rubber lines as well but we just ran out of time. Besides, it was working fine up to Friday. Thanks for the help Glenn. Take care

It sounds like hose collapse to me, which it would still do with a mechanical (I'm sure you knew that). I use braided hose for the suction side on High output deals because of this...Could the regulator be stuck..


That reminds me of a funny story (Small thread jack) My buddy build a 400M for his '68 Mustang Pro Street with an 871 BDS and two fours...cool car...anyway, he calls me up because the car wont start and it is absolutely kiking his ass, so I get there and there is not even the smell of gas in the carbs...I was like "dude, you're out of gas!" he swears he just put 15 gallons of high test in it... So after some checking, the celophane wrapper was still over the in hole on the "Brand New" fuel pressure regulator... :screwy:

He bought the pizza's and beer   ;D
Title: Re: Sanger circle boat
Post by: jrork on September 10, 2009, 06:56:24 am
Yup, the exact reason I wanna swap out the rubber lines but we ran out of home stock AN fittings so we had to go with what we had.  I hadn't even considered the regulator but that would be a easy swap as we have a couple spares here in my box of goodies.

Thanks again Glenn and keep in touch

I think we'll try to rob the Brendella of the lines from my tanks to the tee and see if that cures it. That will give it full -8 througout the entire fuel system and make it comparable to mine (cept fo the regulators).  That should eliminate the uncertainty there....

Whoops, we never update this.  We on a whim swapped a Carter Mechanical that I had in the shop and took it out and it worked perfectly. Only thing we did was space that one front plate on that side out about an inch. The pillow blocks lined up perfectly with an existing hole and we were good to go. No electric pump, no regulator, just a good old KISS system and it worked flawlessly.  Now we need to find a dbl pumper Holley for this thing and he should be golden. 

One thing that I gotta admit, this boat is so much cooler than mine. The lines are killer, it's got some much more room and I love how it rides in the water. Our boat you get wet and the motor gets douched all the time.
This Sanger you and the motor stay dry. I really like that.

Ian,

From what I am told, there is only one U.S. race scheduled so far, which is the Hoopa Race on the Trinity River in Northern California. The Worlds is being hosted by Mexico this year, it's going to be a strange year for sure...The Hoopa race is sort of different in that it is held smack in the middle of an Indian reservation...Also hotel accommodations suck... :thumbdown:

There is a state campground not too far from the action though.....Look up Willow Creek California for more info...

For schedule info and a pretty laid back and quiet forum, check out   www.jetboatracing.com   Jesse will keep the schedule pretty up to date because he is the head of the racing committee in the states.

They normally schedule the Boatnik a little late and as far as I know, no other Rogue race is in the works...

Hope they get more races scheduled, I am going to try to make it to at least one, I need my fix  :sly:

Bad news is that he has to sell his boat cuz he can't support it while going to college.  :thumbdown:

Good news is that we're gonna keep it in the family as Jan and I have bought it from him

It is indeed a interesting obsession we all seem to have with these boats, the collection of them and the work and restoration .When Glen first told me abot that boat I knew I had to own it ! Just like many of the hundreds of boats that have passed the JBP "halls" over the years we're  better off for the expirience of rerigging and getting to drive the UFO . Like the Schiada and several others I wish I could have a Jay Leno type Stable and could afford to have kept them all .

I first tried to buy this boat un-rigged in 1996 and it was literally a barn find, it was shiny new looking and all the yellow anodized parts were in the cardboard boxes the anodizing guys packaged them in.

The guys that had it were in San Jose CA and I can't remember how they ended up with it but he was asking $7500 for it without a motor or exhaust... :screwy:.

By the time I got a hold of it it had been outside in the weather for almost ten years.  :thumbdown:

"Hi John
Just a short beginning to what I hope will be a long friendship between myself and my central California friends and car guys, and you and your friends in Washington State.

U F O II was purchased by my friend Rich Laguilo at a time when [Sanger Boats, Fresno California] had stopped selling bare hulls to the general public. U F O II was originally billed to a boat boat racer in Oaklahoma, and was picked up and payed for by Rich at Sanger Boats. U F O II came home to San Francisco California where Rich and I both lived. Lots more to come"

Well John, as much as I would love to get those parts to you, the entire pump and rigging is installed in White Trash right now, I sold the original pump from Trash a couple years ago because I needed more impeller and had to get the split bowl for adding the droop to remedy a major handling issue.

That being said, I found another full Droop and I think I gave the original race nozzle to Tom when I sold the boat, which reminds me....Tommy, I will be sending you a wish list very soon... :D

No worries Glenn.  I just thought I would ask in case it was just taking up space in the shop.   Thanks anyway.



Okay, here's a bit more of the story.   Glenn and Tommy, feel free to edit as needed.

Okay, I apologize in advance if this rambles a bit and I’m certain that the story will grow but here goes what I know at the moment.

I’ll start with what we’ve have known in the past.

From what I understand Glenn went to look at this boat in 1996.  The boat was in a warehouse and completely unrigged.  The aluminum was still in the boxes from having been anodized.  The paint was perfect as was the floor and upolstrey.  There was an all aluminum ZL1 Chev motor with injection setting alongside it and likely belonged to the boat.   

The guys that were selling it wanted $7500 minus motor and exhaust so he passed on it but kept his eye on it.

Fast forward to 10 years later where it came up for sale again and Glenn went to look at it.  Unfortunately, by that time, they had pushed it outside and the sun had done damage to the incredible paint and upholstery.  The boat was still unrigged.

Glenn bought the boat at that time and brought it home.  He documented what he had found and stored it.  Unfortunately at the time, he couldn’t put time and money into it so he decided to sell it.

In 2008 Tommy at JetBoatPerformance bought the boat and brought it into their capable hands.  Josh worked his magic assembling all the anodized rail kits and finished rigging the cav plate hardware.   They assembed the boat, installing a rebuilt pump, diverter, cables and made it a workable boat.  They had a blown BBC in it for a while and tried a variety of setups before electing to focus on the next project and putting the Sanger up for sale.

In March 2009 my son, Ian,  bought the boat and we had a great father and son trip south to pick it up as well as my new blower motor I was having Barry Obler at Obnoxious Racing Engines assemble for me.

We brought it home and Ian spent all his free time buffing and detailing the boat back.  The California sun had unfortunately done its damage to the paint but I gotta admit, Ian was able to bring back a lot of it’s luster. 
 
Looking at it closer we found so many details like pinstriping on the bottom of the boat, pinstriping inside the suction housing, braided trailer wire, murals, pinstriped and parquet floor and very faintly the sign on the dash that said “Prepared by Sano Don La Franchi”   

Looking at this boat I was certain it was different and may have some history so I started doing searches to the names on all the boat sites I could think of but unfortunately came up empty.  A number of folks mentioned that the name “UFO” sounded familiar but they couldn’t remember who had it.

The whole time in the back of my mind I kept thinking about when I was younger Jan and I would go to the car shows and see all the awesome hotrods (and yes, even vans) and in the shows there were often some bitchin boats in the show as well.  Given this I thought it might have had some time on the showroom floor so I started posting on all the hotrodders sites as well but alas, no luck.

Unfortunately, Ian, like so many was hit by the economy and was laid off of his job.  It was tough timing as the big Labor Day event was quickly approaching but he regrettably didn’t have much money to get a motor and finish the boat.   Soooooo, against my better judgment, I turned him loose in my shop and spare parts and was able to assemble a BBC and all the fixings to get the boat running.  A couple of our friends kicked in some spare parts as well and we’ll be forever grateful.   

He had a great time over the big gathering and though there were so many big dollar boats, Ian’s boat always had a crowd around it. The more you stare at this boat the more you realize just how different it is.

Upon returning from the big bash, Ian applied and was accepted to Central Washington University to make something of himself instead of ending up a flake like me.

Now, fast forward to over this last holiday weekend when he was home from college and decided to play a prank on me by installing my blower motor in his boat.  The look just blew me away and inspired me again to try to find the history of this incredible boat.

I had posted everywhere I could think of, Googled it, Bing’d it and searched anyway I could think of and could never find anything. The only lead we had  was “Prespared by Sano Don La Franchi”.

Just for grins I tried something I had never done, FaceBook. What are the odds of somebody like Don La Franchi being on FaceBook?
Well, low and behold there WAS a Don La Franchi on FaceBook and the area listed sounded about right. (San Francisco).

I sent him a private message mentioning my son buying a boat with a Don La Fanchi name on the dash and would he have been involved in it or did he have any tips he would be willing to share. 

His quick reply was “if this is about UFO II, call me at **********”

I was blown away that out of the blue I had finally found somebody that knew something about the boat and I shakingly called the number.   Unfortunately, we continued to play phone tag until……….one night as I was getting home from work I got a call. 

On a conference call was not only Don La Franchi but Rich Laguilo, the former owner of UFO II.

I knew I was in heaven when Rich asked if I knew “how famous that boat is?”………………

Okay CC, for you I'll add some more



The former owner and I keep missing each others calls but I hope to hook up with him today.

Regardless, I'll add a bit more working backwards now.

Approximately 1981 or 82,they decided to retire the boat in a proper manner.

The location was chosen to be Lake Shasta. An event was planned where the boat would be officially christened.  Well in excess of 150 people were in attendance. The boat was backed into the water, champagne was poured on the boat and passed around to everyone and then the boat was launched for the first time to show that a) it would float, b) it actually ran, and finally, c) to formally retire it from competition.

Sorta like putting a champion race horse out to pasture....


Thanks for following along on this journey..........john

Okay, we finally hooked up by phone.  Super nice guy.  We probably talked for almost 2 hours and though this isnt anywhere near the whole story, it gives you a smattering of what we talked about.   I cant wait to see the pictures cuz there were so many custom pieces built and unfortunately dont exist today.  Dont know what happened to those but I would love to see them.   I'll post them up as soon as I get them (though I suspect it will be a while).

Here goes

The boat was bought as a bare hull from Sanger in 1977 thru Bruce Halloway of GTH Marine after Jack Davidson had stopped selling bare hulls to the public.  The color was black with gold and orange stripes in the typical Sanger fashion.

He had full stringers installed along with the wood flooring.

The motor was a blown 468 with twin dominators running 22% over.

The boat had a Lenco multi disc clutch with air shifter to activate it.

The pump was built by Dave Bostrom of GT Boats (was GTH Marine at the time) with a AQ shaft, stainless A impeller with a “fuel” cut.  Custom cut shoe and loader.  Double drilled bowl and long droop with a race nozzle with inserts. He said at the time, it was the very best of the best in parts.   The pump was fully pinstriped inside and out.  Unfortunately, the pump is no longer in this boat but the suction housing is the original one given that there’s pinstriping in the intake area.

Mike Farley did the paint including the pinstriping, numbering and murals. I’ll be honest, the name didn’t ring a bell to me but as soon as I started surfing the web I found many of his works on both boats as well as race cars.   Gonna have to do more research here.

The trailer was custom built for the boat with completely ground and smoothed welds, braided wiring (still present) and pinstriped throughout.  The hubs were drilled for both Chevy and Ford pattern.

A Halon fire suppression system was installed with hardlines throughout.  Nozzles on the gunnels as well as mounted solid to the motor on the heads.

The Cav plate hardware was built by George Shilala of Finishline.   

All the custom machine work, rail kits, tiller for the Calgo steering as well as the aluminum seat frames were done by his friend Don La Franchi.  Don’s a master sheetmetal man as well as a self taught machinist and has such attention to detail that he was knicknamed many years ago “Sano Don”.

A good friend that worked at Roy Brizio Street Rods assisted in getting all the hardware anodized (including the AN fittings) in matching colors. The wiring as well as the sparkplug wires were all custom colored to match the paint.  The boat was sponsored by Sanderson Headers so needless to say, he ran those headers.

The boat competed in the 1979/1980 season of the ISCA circuit ultimately winning the national championship in both Custom Boat and Comp Boat.  It was so successful and dominating that the judges were having to break out the catagories as many protested it’s dominance.   He still has the plaques as well as trophies and it was incredible to listen to him read off all the awards he still has.

At the time it was named the champion, it was the first Jet boat to when the championship. 

It was retired as I mentioned at previously at Lake Shasta with much fanfair.   He sparingly used it for a year or so before he ended up selling the hull to a friend for $7000 in around 1983.

He still has many of the judges sheets, trophies, awards, display boards as well and 100’s of pictures and is working on putting together a portfolio for my son along with a few parts that he still has.

He has some great stories like when he was at either the Oakland Roadster Show or the Cow Palace (I cant remember which he said) when there was a protest that his engine was a dummy and didn’t run.   He was given 3 hours to prepare it (never kept oil or gas in it so there were no chances of leaks) and swap out the exhaust (didn’t want to blue the chrome Sandersons).   He got that all done and had some zoomies mounted up and much to the disappointment of his competitors, fired the engine.  The boat was alongside one of the walls and the exhaust from the zoomies blew some banners loose from the walls  and they came down floating down on the crowd and show cars.   

I’m gonna continue to search some of this out but regardless, this is fun stuff.

What an interesting story.  I bought a bare hull from Bruce and Dave and am currently overhauling it.  I would like to get in contact with them.  As I recall, my hull was actually made by "Fiberglass West".  Somewhere around here I have some paper work from back then.  Time to dig through some boxes.

I believe Dave is still in business but I think Bruce has retired. At least that's what Rich was thinking.

Well, it's terrible fat but running.   Found out that my mix screws were off and loading it up at idle but goes those even'd out and much better.   Now if it wasnt so crappy in the weather department we'd have something!

BTW John, the boat trailer had American Daisy wheels on the trailer....Sadly, that was the only reason the boat was traded to the guy I got it from....He wanted the wheels for his Tahiti trailer..... :screwy:

Wow, Ian and I need to update this.  So much has been found and discovered.   I'll try to get this update this weekend

Title: Re: Sanger circle boat
Post by: jrork on November 30, 2012, 05:51:23 am
Okay, we have learned so much of this boat that we now know the entire history start to finish so I'll post this again after having it been edited by the former owner and folks off the build team.   Ian and I have been so fortunate to get to know these guys and are now happy to call them friends as they are huge gearheads.

Here we go......

The UFO II is a 1977 Sanger boat owned by my son Ian Rork. A friend of ours in Central California Glenn Thorne went to look at this boat in 1996. The boat was in a warehouse and completely unrigged. The aluminum was still in boxes from having been freshly anodized. The paint, upholstrey and trailer were breathtaking.
The guys that were selling it wanted $7500 minus motor so Glenn passed on it but kept his eye on it.

Now fast forward to 10 years later when it came up for sale again and Glenn went to look at it. Unfortunately, by that time it had been pushed ouside and the California sun had done damage to the incredible paint and upholstrey.
At this time, Glenn was finally able to buy the boat and he brought it home where he documented what he had and put it in storage.

In 2008, another close friend Tom Manier of Jetboatperformance bought the boat from Glenn and originally started this thread. They assembled all the anodized rail kit, and finished the cavatation hardware. They put a supercharged big block Chevy in it and tried a variety of setups before electing to focus on other projects and put the Sanger up for sale where Ian bought it sight unseen.

In March of 2009, Ian and I had a great father/son trip to southern California to pick up my new blower motor I was having assembled by Barry Obler of Obnoxious Racing Engines. On the way back, we swung by Tom at JBP and we brought the UFO II home to Washington State.

While Ian was buffing and detailing the boat we found so many details that are not typical like the murals, pinstriping on the deck, on the floor, the trailer, and even inside the pump and faintly we could see the remanants of pinstriping on the dash that said,
"Prepared by Sano Don La Franci"
We knew this boat was different and I tried to find some history through all the boat forums I could think of but not luck.
The whole time in the back of my mind I kept thinking about when I was young, my wife Janice Rork and I would go to the car shows and every once in a while there would be some boats mixed in with the hotrods and motorcyles. Given this, I tried the custom car forums but no luck.

Unfortunately, Ian like so many was hit by the economy soon after buying the boat and was laid off. The timing was tough as our big Labor Day Mardon event sponsored by Tony Skagen of Skagen Boats was coming up quickly.
Sooooo, against my better judgement, I turned Ian loose in my shop and spare parts. He was able to assemble a Big Block Chevy and all the fixings to get the boat running.
It's important to mention the help of so many friends like Tony Skagen, Tom Manier, Travis Wester, Rick Gitchel, Austin Cole who also kicked in some spare parts to get him on the water.
We made the event and the boat performed flawlessly and it was great to see him with his own boat.
Upon returning, Ian was accepted to Central Washington University to make something of himself instead of ending up like me.

Now, fast forward to over the 2010 Christmas Holiday break when Ian was home and decided to play a prank on my by installing my blower motor in his boat while I was away at work. When I got home I was totally blown away how "right" the boat looked with that motor like it was almost meant to be....
Following that, I returned to searching trying to find anything I could about this boat.
I had Googled it, Bing'd it, tried Harlin Orin, Art Anderson, Billy B and Jerry Griffin and came up empty.
The only lead we had was that "Prepared by Sano Don La Franchi"
A few more months passed before I thought of something that I never had tried before. I tried Facebook.....
What are the odds that a Sano Don would be on Facebook?

Well, I did find a Don LaFranchi and he was in the right area (San Francisco) so I took a chance and sent him a message asking if he or anyone else he might know have any knowledge of a boat that my son bought with his name on the dash.

I got a message back from him the next day say merely "if this is about the UFO II, call me at ***********"

I was blown away that after all this time I had finally found somebody that might know about the UFO II. Well, we played phonetag for a few days till one night as I was driving in the driveway I got a call on my cell.
On the line was not only Don LaFranchi but the orignial owner, Rich Laguilo!
I knew I was in heaven when the first thing Rich asked me is "do you know how famous that boat is?"

So, here's a brief rundown of what all he told me.

The boat was bought by Rich Laguilo as a bare hull from Sanger in 1977 thru Precision Speed & Marine in LA.
At that time Rich was a crew member of the Proctor Brothers Pro Stock Race Team. They were sponsored by Precision Speed & Marine, who built the blown big block for Rich.

By that time, Jack Davidson (founder of Sanger Boats) had stopped selling bare hulls to the public but had one left and would sell it thru Precision Speed to Rich. The hull had originally been ordered for a racer in the Oklahoma area but never picked up. The color was black with gold and orange stripes in the typical Sanger fashion. The hull came from Sanger with Full Stringers, a feature designed for race boats only at that time.

Bruce Halloway and Dave Bostrom, were partners in GTH Marine/GT Boats. Before they became partners, Bruce Holloway worked for Berkley Pumps and designed & manufactured all of the high performance parts for the Berkeley jets.
The UFO II was one of the first boats to test the new state of the art performance race parts installed by Bruce Holloway of GTH Marine. At that time Rich also had GTH install a Balsa cored floor.

The race parts used in the pump was a Aq shaft, stainless A impeller with a fueler cut, custom shoe and loader, double drilled bowl, long droop and race nozzle with inserts. Clearly, these were the very best of the best for the late 70's and still good stuff today. Both Bruce Halloway, Dave Bostrom and GTH have alot of history themselves in the performance boat scene.

The motor was a supercharged 468 chevy with twin dominators running 22% over.
The boat also was equiped with a Lenco multi disc cluch with air shifter to activate it (remember, this was the late 70s. State of the art stuff at the time)

Mike Farley did the paint including the pinstriping, numbering and murals. I'll be honest that at the time the name didnt ring a bell but I've since learned that Mike has painted many boats, race cars and customs and is published in a number of books. I found that he's still in business and I hope to catcha up with him sometime.

The trailer was custom built by Chuck Larkin and is completely smoothed with braided wiring, pinstiping and many custom features. The attention to detail on this trailer is incredible.

All the custom machine work, rail kits, tiller for the Calgo steering as well as the aluminum seat frames were all build by Don La Franchi. Don's a master craftsman in the Bay area and his attention to detail has earned the name Sano Don.

The boat competed in the 1979/1980 season of the ISCA circuit ultimately winning the national championship both Custom Boat as well as Competition Boat. It also won Best Interior, Best Paint and Best Competition Engine, Best Custom Engine as well as Outstanding Display.
At the time, it was so dominate that the judges began to break out the categories as many protested it. Rich still has many of the plaques and trophies and it was fun listening to him read them off on the phone.
At the time it was the champion, it was the very first jet boat to have ever won the championship.

Finally, it was time to retire the UFO II and move on to a new project, the UFO the Third! This was a Fresno Mini Cruiser with a High Performance V-Drive. This boat was also powered by a big block Chevy with three Corvette 2 bbls and a Turbo 400 transmission. I have posted a picture of that boat elsewhere on the thread and at the time I thought it was the UFO 1 but in fact it is UFO III.   The Silver boat pictured below with the UFO II is the original UFO.

The boat was taken to Folsom Lake in Roseville, California and in front of a large group, the boat was christened with a bottle of champagne and launched into the water for the first time to show a) it would float, b) it would run and c)to formally retire it from competition.

He sparingly used it for a a year or two before selling the hull to a friend for $7,000 in around 1983.

The boat disappeared after that and it's location from 1983 to 1996 when Glenn found it was unknown. What actually happened likely happens more often that not. The boat was put in storage at Topside Marine in San Jose and it stayed semi abandoned tucked away from the weather until it was pushed outside in the early 90s. Soon TopSide Marine placed a lien on the boat for past due storage fees and eventually sold the boat to Glenn in 2008 through Pat's Lien service.

So that's it. The whole story of the UFO II. Through this silly boat, my son and I have made so many new friends like Don La Franchi, Chuck Larkin and Rich Laguilo and we both consider ourselves very fortunate.

Hope you enjoyed the story. I have more but will try to hold here.

And I HAVE to throw huge thanks to Glenn Thorne.   He hooked up Ian with the ORIGINAL pump from the UFO II.   The parts and detail are so cool and Ian owes Glenn huge.   Thanks so very much my friend!

From Ian.
After much anticipation.... the original GTH Racing pump out of the UFOII has made it home! Many huge thank yous go out the Glenn Thorne and his friend Gordy who graciously delivered it to me all the way up north in washington. Excited is an understatement!

After Ian got the pump from Glenn (thanks again), he spent alot of time touching up the black where it had gotten chipped.   Lightly scuffed the whole assembly and then buried it in some SPI Clear I had left over from the Brendella project to preserve the paint and most of all, the original pinstriping.

Turned out really good.....
