    Default Sanger mini day help

    I am looking for one of the rear night lights/ safety driving light for my boat. I really just need the cover for the light but will buy the whole assembly if someone has one. It has to be the telescoping one like the factory one

    Also has anyone put any decent HP in a jet sanger cruiser? Ive heard the v-drives act funny above 90 mph. (not that I am going for that speed) But i want to do better than the 63 mph it goes now. Thanks guys

    My cover broke a couple of years ago. I could not find one that fit. I then went looking for aftermarket light. All the ones in store were too big and would have to resize the hole. did not want to do that. so I am fabbing some type of cover that I can utilize the holes to bolt it down.

    The v-drives will get up and be safe when modified for a delta bottom. The jets however are delta bottoms, which typically from a jet boat perspective isn't the best for speed. The biggest issue you have is the insert pump as they just aren't what you want to go fast. My boat is a 76 mini jet and is one of only a handful I have seen that are not the insert pumps. I am still trying to get all my ducks in a row to get my procharged 502 in my mini. I don't know of anybody else that has tried to put anywhere near the power I am into a jet sanger mini. I'm kinda afraid to see how it'll react but I'm just going to take it real slow.

    Thanks Mouzer. That light is different. Im sorry, I just threw out some bait on the factory light to see if someone had removed one. I'm in no rush, but am a buyer if one comes along.

    As for the power plant question. I am not trying to make this tug boat a drag boat. But a little more power never hurts right! That 502 sounds perfect to me

    Well....it should be nice with the big pulley and 7-8 lbs of boost, probably around 800-900hp. The 16-18lbs setup is probably going to be too much at 1200+ HP. But we'll see!

    i have 2 mini days. one jet and one v drive. last time the v drive was in the water at about 73 it wanted to chine walk. the jet is about 52mph. i like the sangers but i dodnt think they are the fastest hulls for a 20 ft. i think the hp in your 76 is overkill. is the boat box stringer or full ? i believe after 81 all were full stinger but only ordered that way prior otherwise it was box. trust me i love my sangers but if i wanted to build a huge healthy 20ft hull it wouldnt be a sanger. id look into hallett or shiada

    I was thinking more in the range of 500-600. I dont want a belt for any kids to get there hair or fingers in. I do use my boat as a day cruiser. I have not gps my boat with the new intake and carbs but it feels good. sets @ 5100 rpm. Before @ 5000 rpm with torker intake and single 850 it went 63 mph. Which i feel good about, I am just hard headed and dont know when to leave a good thing alone i guess

    with modifications to the bottom they can be fast but still not as fast as other hulls. my v drive wanted to chine walk at the low 70 mph. i saw one at cfw several years back that a guy ran it hard but also seen it to some voo doo stuff. enjoy it as a cruiser. 5-6 hundred horse is quite a bit. call tom at jetboat performance great guy and knows his stuff. think you might have to reach deep into pocket to go to much faster

    My cruiser is a box stringer, but I heavily modified it a few years ago. Basically I pulled the floor and wet foam out. Added a massive center stringer and 2 mini support stringers, then added a new 1/2 inch floor and rail kit for the engine. The boat GPS'd at 62 MPH with a mild BBC and the AA aluminum impeller I had in it spinning about 4700 RPM. The new setup should be a pump gas 700-800 hp spinning a HH stainless 9.5. I have no clue how the boat will handle, but its easily the most solid boat I've ever owned. I'm not planning on breaking any speed records, I built it more for the wow factor. There is nobody I have every seen or heard of that has put any sort of big power into the jet, so it'll be trial and error I suppose! Who knows, maybe the engine will come back out to get put into something like a daytona and the sanger will go back to being mild, but I just LOVE the sanger cruiser! Easily my favorite boat ever built.
