    Default Move pump back

    First of all not all boats like to have the pump moved back.What kind of boat do you plan on doing this to? What does the strake design look like on the bottom.Some vee bottoms have the inside strakes in the middle of the boat stop way before the transom so by moving the pump back you leave the boat no place to ride on. The boat can get some real bad handling problems espically on the top end. I would research this throughly before making this kind of a change.

    Pretty sure the strake go all the way back.It has a round keel.


    Its a 1983 Haskell made by G&L marine.

    Thanks for all the help.

    Greg, i am not trying to thread jack but i have the same question (i have a 18' miller v) ideally , where should the strakes end in relation to the intake? if you move the intake back , could you just extend the strakes?

    Default Haskell

    Most all of the Haskell's had Panther pumps . Are you taking a Panther out and installing a Berkeley?

    do you mean 19 miller ? i would not move the pump back at all millers do not have a problem getting out of the water and you will load the pump to much have GS do the bottom and set up the intake thats my two cents

    Default Miller

    Just recently I have worked on a Miller that had the pump moved back and the boat had some handling and overcharging problems that I contibuted to moving the pump way back. Not knowing all about the Millers I contacted John Rennie who ran a boat back in the day that was called Low Rider this boat was a pain in our ass so I figured this was the person I wanted to talk to. After a lenghtly conversatition we decided that this was the wrong way to go on this boat.With the intake moved back about an inch from the transom was about as far back as you wanted to go.These boat had no problem getting loose on the water. Actually towards the end of there racing program the Miller team suffered a few blow overs because the boats could get so loose.

    Default Miller

    i guess it is considered a 19 ( the registration says 18 something), i have everything out right now so i figured it would be the time to do it if that would help. thanks for the info.

    My boat has a Berkeley pump now, im not sure about the boat the numbers are cut in with a marking tool, not the stamp like all others I have had or seen
    I have everything out of the boat but the intake,putting new stringers and more so thought if I was going to do it, do it now.
    The boat to me and some others with them think its the same as the Eliminator bubble deck? Here are a few pics to show as much as I can.
    Also can take more if needed just let me know.
    I just dont want to mess with it if its not going to help,I have no problems now just lookin gto go faster?
