    Default Eliminator sprint.

    I recently got what i think is a eliminator sprint. Apparently it sat outside for 10 years the 396 was full of water up to the spark plugs the headers were full of leaves and acorns from squirrels and what not. It was full of rat crap and every cable was seized up. I got a fresh 454 to go in it and all new cables. Pretty new to the jet boat thing i was hoping someone could verify which hull this actually is. It has a 12 JG polished split bowl with a ride plate. Other than that i know nothing about eliminator boats. Is this a decent hull?. This thing will be running the sac river by chico here in CA so any advice or mods required for running rivers would be awesome too thanks.

    Default welcome

    Welcome to the boards mark, nice lookin ride. On the transom at the right rear corner there is Hin # (hull id.) It should start with the letters elim###.......etc. It appears to be an elim. sprint to me but I'm not your best reference for that. More knowledgeable people will come along shortly and help dial you in. The eliminator sprints are great boats. Your in for some fun now. good luck.

    Mark, do a general search (search forum feature) in the jet section for "eliminator sprint". You will many threads to help you identify and learn of your potential future.

    Thanks for the reply. What would one in this condition go for?. I feel like i maybe spent a too much on it in this condition i spent 2,000$ as it sits. But again I know very little about it and just want to get it in the water at this point.

    Is the Sac deep enough between Scottys' and the Hamilton City Bridge?
    Looks like a good project. Good luck and have fun.

    if the hull is an eliminator or good splash, is sound, (no delamination at stringers, transom wood, bad cracks etc.) then you did just fine. The 396 can always be cleaned up and rebuilt for another day, project whatever and has some potential value. If your concerned about stringer delam. strip the floor down to the glass and look for white spots where the wood isn't clear thru the glass. Keep taking lots of detailed pics. very helpful for those trying to assist you in your new addiction to hot boats. Welcome to the sickness.

    Ok ill get some better pics. The stringers are 2x6's . The most rot ive found was in the seats. All the wood was totally rotten im trying to find a good local upholstery guy to redo them for me. The quotes ive gotten are between 1,400 and 1,800 that seems hugely excessive as i can do the wood work myself. Is there some jet/bow maintenance i should consider, keeping in mind it supposedly say for 10 years . This boat is a 1979.

    We ran from scotty's all the way past north of the diversion dam (red bluff) in my eliminator cruiser last weekend with no problems.

    Is your brother Matt? If u have any other questions Im hear in Chico with two eliminators, I have a 80 sprint all done up minus the motor u can check out. That one is for sale, $2500 if u hear anybody that's interested in a similar boat, has a droop, loader, diverter, stuffer plate, ceramic through transom headers, all cables replaced.

    Yes Matt is my brother. Small world haha. So you have a sprint as well?. I think this is a sprint from what I've seen online but don't know much about it at this point. It definitely is a eliminator.Does my brother have your contact info?. It would be cool to check yours out. Thanks.
