New guy here. I've been reading up on some posts and this looks like a great place to start my new adventure with my family, jet boats! We have already done the classic restoration thing (back in my 20's, won't do that again), desert motorsports, and now I'm ready to be that old, fat, tan guy with a bad ass boat the kids can brag about...the boat, brag about the boat, not fat tan dad, lol
It's great to see there is a healthy mix of extremes here, just like any other mechanical thing that spins & whirls...man will always be fascinated and have some better idea than the other guy (I tend to go with the longevity wins crowd).
I look forward to reading up on this new venture of mine and conquering another platform that holds an engine!
Oh yeah, so I have about $8k (and a nice 4 seat off-road car if someone is looking for a trade, $10k value)...I was thinking Eliminator for the platform, Berkley for the pump, and would like to stay with a Chevy power plant...I don't mind sweat equity, but I am 45, not 25 and my days on the water are more valuable than in the shop anymore.
See ya in the funny pages,
Chris, Oceanside, CA
