There is a boat for sale on Craigslist near me with the following description:
"The boat is a 19 foot Marlin (built in California) equipped with a Berkley jet drive coupled to a Chevy 409 ci V-8 that has a 4-barrel double pumper carb reportedly generating a minimum of 415 hp."
Here's the link in case you want to see the pics:
Questions - my '75 Avenger has a decent ride in lake chop, any idea how the Marlin bottom would compare? Is a 409 a decent engine for a jet boat, and does the 415 HP sound right for a 409 with logs and snails? The ad doesn't mention the year - any guesses on what year this boat is?
Thanks for any comments.
