      Damn.... I didnt know she was for sale!?! LOL. Better re-name her "QUEEN OF THE PARADE". How much HP diff are you thinking with the dual carb set up? Hope you are as proud of that boat as I am for you! (For those that dont know, the Queens float is always in front!)

      Yea was for sale... now i just want to head down the red river and find a sand bar crank up the cajun music and throw back a few cold ones. as for as HP not a clue . i found out who built this motor from the previous owner. tells me a outlaw racer from baton rouge put this motor together and put the best of everything . when i opened it up it has all roller stuff cam lifters stud girdles . tells me he dumped over 12,500.00 just in the motor . maybe hit mardi gras next year . we use to ride in the open parade called crew du foo in french that means crazy.

      This is a great story Charles!!! Not only have you resurrected a great hull but you keep Jason supplied with Cajun goodies as well.
      Things like this make all the time I (we, Steve & Jason too) spend here so worth it!!!

      Charles, all we do, is try to share a common passion! Be it, Building, fixing, watching, enjoying, finding, anything that has to do with Vintage JetBoats! It does really make a difference, when we see all the boats that many of you have brought back from the condition the craft was in! Cheers on a "Job Well Done" I hope at some point in the future, We can all meet on the water somewhere, and share some stories over a beer, in person!

      And it always makes it that much more enjoyable when you have others to talk with and bounce things off of. It makes it that much better when you have some of those really cool people living nearby and at least banzai run close like I do!!!

      I agree Wolfie! I Had one of the greatest times in recent memory when Doug, David, & myself shot out to see you NUTTZ in Utah! Very Good for the Soul I Think!
