    Default Biesemeyer- question on pump set up

    I am doing a resto on a 75 Biesemeyer modified V hull. I am running a berkley pump set back with the hand hole cover just out side the boat. Using a manual place diverter need to know if this boat is droop snoop friendly or am i better off going with place diverter new hp nozzle housing. thanks hope to get a lot of good in put. It is hard too find anyone who knows how to set up this hull. Thanks Z racing

    Default Modified V

    Do you have a pic of your boats' transom? I'd be curious to see if the hull is similar to mine. I have never known what to call it- other than a shallow V. Mine has the handhole cover very close against the inside wall of the transom. It likes the droop- helps it get the nose up a bit. I'm not running as much HP as you though- and no shoe or ride plate- but I do have an 'SS' loader in the intake.

    Thanks for replying. My boat is a shallow V and it is 17 foot. The reason i am asking about the droop is because my diverter steering arm hits near the pin on this old style berkley snoop. So if i need to replace it any ways just seeing what would work best. Thanks Z Racing

    GOOD QUESTION!!!! It helps to know what you are trying to give advice to! I run a mod-v and have a short set back that works well! Now if I had a deep V I would go a different set up! Not to mention that an old bes will be a heavy boat and the more info you give the better idea you will get from the guys that know!!! I am sure that Tom at JBP has a pretty good clue!!! O.G.

    Default Biesmeyer

    The steering arm had to use an extension piece when I installed the droop. My hull identification number starts with ASK (according to coast guard: Arizona ski boats- Biesmeyer boats by Steele). My boat actually measures around 18'-6" overall. I guess you'd call it an 18'. I dunno if technically I can even call it a Biesmeyer. I always pay attention to Biesmeyer posts to try and learn all I can about these hulls. I have yet to see another exactly like mine. What does your HIN start with? please post a few pics.

    If you were addressing me I don' have an old biesmeyer but I do have an old(92) Cole with a mod-v design If you would like to see my set-up let me know! I would be willing to post pics but we are talking about 2 different hulls and (probably) weights and lengths. A picture is worth a thousand words in this scenario! O.G.

    Hi Guys thanks for all the help. Here is a picture of the boat. Working on more pics having issues downloading

    Yes it is a little over 18foot long. My streeing turns all the way one way and on the other my diverter streeing arm hits the droop. Does the old droop have a different pin location? What i am trying to say is i have a place ftn nozzle it does not seem to work on an old berkley snoop. I saw an add for a newer style snoop that fit my diverter just wondering if there is a different pin location as that would solve my problem.

    The hull number is SK180950275.

    Thanks Z Racing

    It would be good to see picture from the back. Just for what its worth---that intake is as far back as I would go with that hull. The weight is a hard call but kinda looks alittle heavy! Also a picture from the bottom would also help. As far forward towards the bow and as close to the keel and pointed to the transom as you can get. It looks like an old bies with the semi-v hull design built for turn and go. Great boat and could be a ton of fun! Good luck! O.G.

    Your Trim nozzle (Diverter) is an Aggressor trim and it or the droop can likley be modified easily to effect full range of steering motion , like said a couple more pics would help re the rest of it
