    Well, Duh!! I never thought of that...makes sense, my Tahiti was that big old tri-hull barge of a bow rider I posted pics of a few days ago. Hence, no V and lots of room for the hot foot on the right side. Actually kind of nice as the cable didn't go down the middle of the floor. It went down the side along with the shift cable.

    Thats the main part I was wondering about,I guess I could cut it out and mold it back right but honestly if I get it I will probably put a OB back on it just to run it and see how it handles.That and I already have two jets I need to still do some work on but i figure if I can get this for less than 200 it could go in the stable for a future build. Thanks guys!

    this was right hand becasue there was room for right hand. alot of the jet boats didnt have the room. thats why they were left hand.

    PM Kreg (H2OMOFO). He had a Daytona converted from a whacker to a jet. Tom at JBP did the conversion for him.
