This is an original 1981 eliminator open bow cruiser my dad bought new. I bought it back from the 3rd owner a few years back. Installed an aluminum headed 500 incher. Just went through the pump, installed a calgo steering set up & rigged it with the cav plates. They operate by an aircraft actuator. With a AAA agressor impellor this boat will cruise at 2700 rpm & go through rough water with the plates buried like a caddy... It will maintain a plane under 20 mph. It still turns 5100 pinned. Really a bitchen ski boat.
