    Default Fresh Pictures of Rogers

    Here are some fresh pics of the 87 rogers TR19. Just picked it up at mpd last week, had Jack and Chris do a bunch of upgrades on pump, intake, setback, calgo steering, jetaway, and install motor rail kit. Here is a breif history of boat. I purchased this boat last summer from original owner who bought it in 87, he used it for 4 years and has been in storage since 92. He had it stored in a nice garage somwhere in northern California, so it was out of the elements. When he moved up here, he drug it along and it still sat unused. Had a boat freind tell me that this dude had a Rogers for sale, and I remember Jack (at mpd) told me that these were great boats to run, so me and a buddy drove the 50 miles to go look at it. When we got there we were both shocked, this boat looked brand new, interior was mint,no extra holes drilled, nobody monkeyed with anything,all original, gel was perfect, couple of little scatches, trailer had several road chips in paint, but that was about it. I tried to dicker him down on price but he wouldn't play. Gave him the dough he was asking, and took it home. I forgot to mention that he couldn't get it started, but gave me his word that there was nothing wrong with the motor (454 bbc). Got it home and decided to give it a tune up, change oil, fuel lines, general servicing. Only thing I found wrong was a couple of freeze plugs in the bilge, pressure check engine poped new freeze plugs in, she started right up, put about 80 hours on it last summer. Boat road like a cadillac, was dependable, got tons of looks, had an absolute ball in it.
    Needless to say, I want to go a little faster, so mpd did the set up, installing a 604 bbc pump gas motor. Will give out specs later, should be on the dyno hopefully in about six weeks. Only one last expensive thing to purchase, cmi stainless headers (ouch). Anyways I would like to thank Jack and Chris for doing a great job , Sal at Orange County Boat Repair for a couple of small gel coat fixes and Dan at competive trailer for making the trailer looking new again. Thanks for reading, happy boating, more later

    Very nice Rogers. You will love it once you put the big power between the stringers.

    With that kind of power it should be running much better than that.

    Needs to set the pump back. How much MPH did you gain when you had MPD set the pump back and detail the pump??

    Nice boat ! My old Miller picked up 11mph when I set the pump back and went ape $hit on the pump. Worth every penny ! Where do you plan on boating ? Hope to see this one on the water next season.

    I don't know how fast it will go, i'm hoping for around 830-850 horse power. The engine starts with a big m block, callies crank, oliver billet rods, afr 345's with more work, 55mm roller cam bearings, jesel .937 keyed lifters,4/7 swap, jesel belt drive and rockers, wilson prepped intake, gary williams dominator, block work by lsm, cutom stephs pan, msd ignition.
    Here in Idaho the elevation is about 3000 to 4000 feet at the lake we go to. Boating here is a little bit different becacuse your dealing with knuckleheads with wake board boats that create pretty rough water. Generally when we "race" it about a 10 mile sprint from one leg of the lake to the other, first guy there wins, so hp and driving ability is what makes it so fun. Sundays are generally this kind of boating, but on tuesday nights, (known as v drive night) there are more hot boats up, less people so you can do more traditional style racing. The best part is, as with all boating, most of the v drivers and jet boaters all know each other and there is always good banter with them, especially with rattle can lou, its pretty nice.
