Long time no post! I have been out of the jet boat world for longer than id care to admit. Between selling our first house and buying the house and property of our dreams I have had very little extra income for fun and excitement… But perhaps that’s all about to change!! I wanted to get all ya’lls opinion on this boat. It’s a 1969 “Glass Ply” with a BBC motor Berkley pump with jetavator on a 1968 trailer titles for both. Apparently the motor was built a couple years ago (Pistons, rings, Knife blade crank, heads, valves” and says there is only 2 hours on it since rebuilt. Also said the pump was rebuilt at the same time by the same shop but again has no paperwork. Just says he can give me the phone number to the guy and talk to him which I plan on doing. Not sure if he would even remember a motor he did from a few years ago but you never know. Said it starts right up stored in a dry boat shed and no soft spots on floors.
He says there is no major damage but chips in paint and obviously the car seat has to go! with the info provided what would you guys feel comfortable paying? He is asking $2500 for it. Thanks in advance! Looking to get back in the jet boat world unfortunately even two years into our dream property I need to do it on a budget!! Haha
