    Default No Dimarco's ?

    Must not have been many Dimarco Jets made. Other than my own, I don't think I've seen another. Post pictures if you have one or know of one and have pictures.

    SR, thanks. Half of them were mine in other posts. The rest were good looking boats. Was hoping for others with the same hull. Isn't looking good though.

    I bought mine new from Sportsmans Paradise in Monrovia in '73 w 455 Olds and Berkley. The Blueberry Duche, had it for 17 years. It was a 19' mini crusier. If I can figure out how to post pictures I will. Royal blue hull with White accents

    Bought the boat new in '73 for $5500 inc tax trailer out the door. A 454 Chevy was an additional $500 ( 10.5%) and hard to get. Got the Olds and spent 5X on making it work in a Jet boat. Action shot - River bend anow called Ahah Quin the moored is Waterwheel

    I sent a PM
    Flip it over and straighten the bottom
    I should have done it 50 years ago

    You need to flip the boat over and straighten the bottom. My boat had a “rocker” creating porpose at cruise speed. Based on the fact that you have the same “step / Trim” tabs adjusted down indicate your boat has the same issue.
    I installed a “jet O vator – Same as the Place Diverter. Had to run full down to avoid the porpuse. My boat was a hard ride in chop, I believe it was partly due to the bottom
    Search this site for how to straighten the bottom.
