    Default Hawaiians!!

    Just looking for any information or stories I can get about Hawaiian jet boats. No particular reason, just curious and want to know everything I can find out about my boat or similar boats. Thanks.

    This is also a thread for my Hawaiian jet boat project. I will be updating it as I get stuff finished.

    Here's mine when I first got it. It's a 19' 78 Hawaiian w/ full stringers and a tiny Chevy 427T that's been punched out 0.060" making it a 438T or 440T.









    Here it is as it sits right now. Still got a lot of work to do to restore the old girl.

    I wouldn't keep your buss bar mounted down there if you are running OT headers. Its lined up directly under the header weep holes.

    It might be! I was told that the previous owner got pissed off at another boater (crazy ass coke head) so they stole his trailer. Don't know if it's true or not, but it probably is since the boat doesn't fit onto the trailer right. That's getting fixed first time off the trailer. I think I just have to raise the boards up to make it clear the fenders.

    I was thinking that myself. But where would be another place to put it to keep the wiring layout real clean looking? Could I put some kind of deflector over it? Thanks.

    Put it back where it's supposed to go, at the top of the bellhousing.

    Better get rid of that lawn mower gas filter showing in your pictures. It will lean you out and cause troubles later on.

    Yeah, that's probably the best place for it. I'll move it there while it's going together. Be easier that way. Thanks.

    Thanks, I did not know that. It has had no gas run through it. We ran the motor before out of a paint mixing bucket with the fuel line stuck in it. What kind of filter should I run? I've seen all these fuel/water separators everywhere. Should I run one of those? Thanks again.

    Build a bracket and mount it off the 2 upper flex plate cover bolts. Its up and out of the way and easy access.....or you could do away with it altogether. Thats the cleanest look....none at all.

    When I build my Southwind, it was up above the flex plate cover and between the lower ski tow mounts (which used those upper 2 cover bolts).

    You can build a bracket and mount it on the ski tow bolts like this.

    Most of the Hawaiian's I have seen and I owned 1 were not full stringers so that's a plus
