    Default Panther Jet

    Does anyone know where you can take your Panther to have it Blueprinted and/or modified? A friend of mine told me there used to be someone in So Cal that did it.

    You can do much better than a blue print these days. There is a kit on the market, that changes out the guts completely, giving you a much more efficient pump. i't like getting a new pump with out any fiberglass work involved, just a bolt on and go deal.

    The cup thing is a killer, did Josh design that?? Hey Tom is that ride plate your latest as far as design goes? I couldn't help but notice the vertical part. Getting rid of my old panther was the best thing I ever did for my tahiti. With the panther I was spinning my 427 to 5900 r's and couldn't break 60mph.

    Hey!!!! I want that cup, clearly it was part of the "kit" and I feel shorted that it was not included when I picked it up.



    ARESEE, That there is an JetBoatPerformance Energized Panther in the back of the line. Don't hesitate to give Tommy a call. He's a good guy but don't let him know I said so.





    This ones for you Tommy.,

    Well, I know I will be joining the upgrade replacement brigade......I was happy with the Panther until I took a ride in the in-laws boat.......We share the same hull, mine is an Omega, his is a Carrera Eclipse, same molds, different manufacturer, bottoms are identical. He has a tired bone stock 25 y/o 454 with a Berk JG, I have a fresh 500 hp BBC with a rebuilt Panther.......How fricken depressing. The rpm differences alone was scary.

    Let me start by saying that I did make a change to the Panther, my grandfather and dad milled off some material on all of the teeth of the Panther intake to allow more water flow to compensate for what we thought would be more needed volume because of the added rpm. DO NOT EVER DO THIS!!!! I had the boat up to around 51-52 mph via GPS with the motor at 5600 rpm in very mild chop down by Blue Water at Parker, the boat was still pulling when I suffered what I am assuming was a case of severe bow steer. I was holding a perfectly straight wheel when the boat suddenly made a hard hard right, so much so, it started rolling to the left mid turn, almost flipping in the process. The boat had become a bit squirly just prior. I am assuming that opening the intake allowed the pump to take more water then designed to, which created a blow by condition which raised the back end enough to create the bow steer condition. The bottom was gone over with a fine toothed comb, as this was a stringer up resto, there was no hook of any kind in the hull bottom. I know the boat had more in her, but I will go on to continue the story.

    I jumped into the in-laws boat, a very clean 82 Carrera Eclipse. To make a long story short, I was WFO, at 4600 rpm with the boat doing 58 mph via GPS, very stable, very happy in mild chop.

    WHile I realize that messing with the Panther intake created the issues involving the bow steer condition, the rpm difference was remarkable.......He was staying on plane at 2800 rpm, I was needing 3600. My conclusion was that the Berk is a much more efficient pump, getting more speed for the rpm. Now I just need to decide what I want to do more.........Go the Panther Energizer route, or change out to a Berk all together.

    Even though my boat is finally done, This just goes to prove that they are never really done.
    I'd rather be boating
