    Default Who would want to see a 22 daytona jet?

    There is a thread in the shoemaker section regarding the 22 daytona being made as a jet. Greg mentioned the center pod is 2" to high for the intake. it could be done but with some re tooling he had mentioned.

    My question is how many people would like that option. i would think it would have a good market place as the placecraft 22s and shockwaves seem to be popular.

    I also wonder if a 22 deck could be made but that can be a later topic

    duane from htp has a 23 tunnel that weights in just under 800lbs i believe. Maybe he'll chime in about it. Kustomkraft i think. so it can be done if the market is there.

    I think 900 is light for a 21 tona(old style). Duane is a good guy. I like all tunnells

    With Ultra having the 21 deck and then the next size up I believe a 23 deck from ultra, the market place for a 22 daytona is small. It would be cool to see and done but I just don't think you going to see many people pony up for a 22 daytona with a jet.

    The 23 ultra, is a really nice boat. Have you looked at them? John D has one with a jet and it is really nice.

    It was tagged a 22' tunnel when it was built, but it measures a few inches more than that. It is an old Kustom Kraft Clegicell boat and weighs in at about 680 lbs. (bare hull, no tanks, no intake, gear or anything). I have seen 128 mph out of it a couple of years ago when I turned the blower up and spun the motor 7200 rpm with a smaller HH impeller. I normally don't spin it that hard because it is just my lake boat. Right now I'm running a blown gas 588 cid cast iron Chevy in it with our new two blade inducer and a 9 1/2" Hi-Helix Impeller with 10 lbs. boost. I can nail it to the floor from a dead stand still and it does NOT slip the pump. It planes out at 2000 rpm, (which relates to 29 MPH), and WOT is 5600 RPM, netting about 118 MPH. It has a new design Ervin Capps bottom on it. I think it will go a little better when we get the final hardware tweaked just right.

    Is there a market for them? I would think so from all of the people who have tried to buy my boat. This is the longest time I've ever kept a boat and I would buy another new one tomorrow if they still made them. Because there just hasn't been anything built out there since that will run with it, with such ease. Sure, there are always faster ones out there, but this is a fully equipped lake boat that runs on 91 oct preimum, (most of the time), seats five, carries 66 gallons of fuel and my wife can pull the Grandkids skiing with it.

    I feel sure that if someone would build them, I could certainly sell some more of them.

    Thanks, We have really enjoyed this boat over the years.
    We use it a lot for testing our new products because it is such a stable, safe and well handling boat. It's like setting in your living room at 120 mph. It they act like they are going to work in this boat at hi speeds, then we move on to the lighter race boats for final testing.

    Personally, I'd rather see them build a 23' or 24'er than a 22'. Lakes now a days are getting so busy and rough that you can't hardly use a run-about shorter than 20' any more. With today's technology and materials I think it could be done in a weight boat that would work well.

    Nice boat Duane. Do you have any pics of it floating. i am curious the freeboard it has. Looks like it may be a little more lo profile then a daytona 22 but its hard to tell. Is that mold still around?

    Also for the No votes i am curious the reasoning if you care to share.

    Thanks
