    Don't worry dean, as soon as the trailer can travel I will box the frame in and make it Robo trailer. They call 7018 sticky rod for a reason, especially if you are a little rusty. Kregs float will be ready before the floods end 2017!

    Lucas makes good products but what motor are you running? I run 50w racing oil with zinc for my old ford.

    If motor and pump are as he says it'd be a good buy but $2500 might be a little steep, just going by the condition of the dash. All that really matters is that you dig it. :cheers:

    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

    I'd just rip it all out and buy one of these... I bought both the vessel side and the engine side from Harden Marine. Very easy and worth the price!!!

    AG6 replied to a thread For Sale Open Bow Tahiti Toad? in Boats for Sale
    Looks like someone hacked the crud out of this deck? I have never seen an open bow version? Anyone else? Its done with nice vinyl work, but doesn't that kind of this weaken the hull integrity unless its layer up with support stringers? What's you though Rigger?

    Its the old adage "start with the simple stuff". If you had gas than it must be electrical. Hopefully its just a fuse/relay/ground and your back on the way!

    Good Morning Matt, I was just thinking(usually dangerous for me, just ask Sleek!!) why don't you give us all that extra stuf here in thee commmunity, size dimensions of what your looking for, and we be able to come up with something. The gentleman next door to my shop is a Collage welding instructor. That being said we do on occasion trade favors(better than dollars for me) and he might be able to modify this or another one I have to fit your needs.. Have you considered a "belly tank" in the center foot well? They are terrific for CG of the boat and keeping the hull balanced? Just a thought. I've even thought about this as a emergency tank or for those that get stranded on the water.. Let me you thoughts on this pls. This tank really has no direct use for me, so I am just trying to help. Dean
