After spending hours and hours on this awesome site, I finally pulled the trigger on my first jet boat that I have waited 20 years to get. It is a 1979 18' Sunkisst and absolutely love it and can not wait until I can get it in the water. It has a 468 BBC and what appears to be a JG Berkley with a "A" impeller since the previous owner said WOT was around 4900 RPM. The original gelcoat is in excellent condition and has been WELL taken care of as I am the 3rd owner. The original orange seats were sprayed black which I would love to find a way to get them back to orange as the black is going to get real hot in the sun. She even came with the original boat cover which is mint.
I am thinking that I may want to get a "B" impeller to get the RPM up alittle higher and also looking into a Jetavator or place diverter. Anyone have any advice as I am very new to the Jet Boats and have lots to still learn
Anyone else have a Sunkisst as I have not been able to find many and would like to learn more about the boat.
