    Default hi everyone!

    Hey everyone..
    Just wanted to introduce my self and ask a question in the right forum.. (hey im a newbie bare with me) Im here in az.. have fixed up one jet boat before, that never got to be finished. it was a 18' kona with a berkely and a bbf. anywho I am looking at a ranger short boat (about 15' or so) with a 327 and a panther.. i can do most of the work cheaply, will probably have to rebuild everything including some fiberglass work. which I am okay with.. however. if the pump is junk would I be better off running a berkely or something else? I am not looking for a high speed boat.. just something that will get me to the lake.. be loud and have fun with. so that being said would it be cheaper to rebuild the 327 and swap out the pump? keep in mind i do all my own fiberglass work so labor is not what I am concerned about. just the price of parts.

    There are some great deals out there on Jet boats. That combination is not real desirable. I think most on here will tell you a big block and berkekley pump are preferred. It's really going to depend on how much the boat is, how much work it needs and how long you plan to keep it. If it needs a ton of work I'd say keep looking. Pics would go a long way toward getting you some replies..

    I'd just scope out some other boats that don't have panthers.
