    Default 2001 19' Eliminator Daytona Project, more pump pics added

    This thread will cover the mods and changes I make to my little Daytona. This isn't going to happen over night. It will be a lot of info in a short time, and then a lull, etc.
    I bought this boat in 2006 for $10K basically as it sits. I have been told that it was originally rigged by GS marine for a customer in Oklahoma. Original power i'm told was a 600" BBC on NOS. Sometime after it's birth, it was traded in at DCB. I believe it was repowered at DCB, and some other hardware was removed/replaced. I bought it from the 2nd owner, who bought it from DCB. The 2nd owner didn't know anything about it and used it very little.
    Here it is now........

    Check out the crack I discovered yesterday in the keel. It is right before the intake and can be seen in the pics above. Is this a major concern? Water worthy one more trip?

    Nice boat and a great project. I have seen cracks like that before around the intake, it's from when the bottom work was done and the speed coat, I'll bet that it has been there for a long time.

    Nothing to worry about, they all do it when you add a keel like the one pictured. I'm sure some of the other guys around will chime in. Typically they crack through the keel added portion not through the boat.

    Good to know. I'll definitely keep an eye on it.

    What is the deal with the stringers in my boat? As pictured, they get shorter in height between the back of the seats and the front of the engine. Are all 19' Daytonas like that?

    Also, I am wondering about engine placement. Is mine pretty far forward for a low HP motor? If I measure from the transom to the back of the block (haven't done it yet), are there some setups in other 19s I can compare it to?

    Right now this thing will only do 53mph. It breaks water right at the helm, so I know there is a lot of drag. I also know more power will help, get the boat out of the water more.

    What is your rpm at 53mph?

    The shorter stringers accomodate a rear seat.
