    Default 19" Eliminator daytona feedback

    Hey, I am looking into a 87 19" Eliminator daytona tunnel,berkley JG,no engine but I would plant a 500hp BBF in it

    Coming from a 18" flat bottom jetboat will this be a good upgrade? Are they good durable boats? Do they handle like a flatbottom such as can you whip it around or will a tunnel grap and tip over? Any problems with frontend lift? Thanks

    Good build quality, much better ride than a flat. Tunnels dont like to turn though. Not much room inside.

    I have to ask... everybody says a tunnel cant turn.
    I have driven a 19 daytona and a 21 Daytona
    and either one will put your ass on the gunnel when you turn. So I have to ask how are you trying to turn them??

    trim down just a tad and it feels like your on rails

    Sorry for the jack back to your question
    I say you would be upgrading big time going to a tunnel

    Uh, sure they do and turn like they're on rails!

    To the orginal poster the 19' Daytona is a great little hull but may seem cramped for space in short time. Look into a 21' Daytona first.
    I have a 21' and wish it was a 30'

    I love my 19' Daytona. Have always wanted one. They handle the chop way better than a V hull jet boat. They are tight on space but if your looking for a Daytona I dont think your concerned with that. Seems like mine handles the best when your balls out on the throttle. I dont think ill ever change hulls until I upgrade to a bigger boat somewhere down the line. (if i ever do)

    If your looking for performance get a Cp or Daytona. I was just always sold on the Daytonas nothing looks cooler than a picklefork. post some pics.

    Daytonas handle great even with a whacker on the back. post some pics and some info on the hull and im sure you will get some feedback on the boat soon and a rough estimate on price range.

    if you want to hit the dark side mine is for sale but im sure your looking for the jet

    Daytona= great ride and hull
