    Nice ones.

    Have anyone speed o meter in Miller boats and if you do has it been stock or put in after? Any ideas where to buy good speedmeter to mine?

    What kind of top speed these 19" Millers should run at stock 454 engine?

    How much this hull with 454 engine weight?

    No meter, no clue how fast it goes.

    Thanks already.

    Some boats tend to be regional, weve seen quite a few as Millers were made a few miles south of us .. Yeah the "burns" ... well it was the 70's ... heres our same boat all those years later after the restoration (son Josh is driving) pic #1 ... also heres a few more Millers that have passed thru our doors for restos and repair work the last is a resto we finished in August ..

    I've had 2 Millers.

    Both 79' 19' ski jets.

    The only Jet Boat I will ever own.
    I've had flatties, Hydros, even Glastrons, and am currently attempting to restore a 76' Sanger flat.
    I like my V-Drives, and the Hydros.

    But there is something about those 79' Millers that seem to exemplify what a jet boat should be.

    They are ROCK solid boats, easily modified, react well to HP and jet mods, handle like a Cadillac, and are the perfect classic hull, IMO.
    There are much faster jet boats, of course.
    The CP's and tunnels are the dominate hulls for jets...BUT, the way I see it is anything above the Miller might as well go prop.


    Here is our 79'. The "Family Truckster"
    454 Chev. 575 HP. Does 86 at 5500 RPM.

    There has been a lot of work along the way to get it where it is now.
    Tom and Josh have had it a couple times for resetting the intake, adding the plate and shoe, installing the rail kit.
    Been about 3 different pump configurations, and a few engine builds too in the last 5 years.
    Redid the seats last winter to the rear bench configuration.
