    Default centurion tunnel any good?

    This is close to me and in my price range. Are these hulls good for the go? It looks like a pump will go right in there no problem. Were the bottoms the same on the outboards? Any info would be great

    Good boats, but if you want a jet boat, buy a Jet Boat instead of trying to convert something to one. There are differences.

    i would be patient and look for a nice tunnel in the classifieds. The deals are getting better all the time. I own a centurion and it is alright but there are better tunnels out there. I saw a nice crusader with a trailer, unrigged, out in Havasau on e-bay. The boat wasn't rigged.

    Like this one that sold a few days ago. Real nice boat and looks like it needed nothing but a motor. Everything else looks to be in really nice shape. And........it's a Daytona.

    Daytona that sold recently

    I think you could find a nice boat set up for a jet already for the same price. I bought my 1990 cheyenne with a basic 454 ready to run for 9k, 2 years ago. Keep searching you will find one.
