    Default First Jet Boat '78 Eliminator

    Picked up this jet boat late last year and had it out on the water a few times. It currently has a Ford 460 with a Holley 750 carb and a Berkely pump. I just rewired the whole boat and rebuilt the carb. I would be really interested if anybody could give me more info about the boat. The seller didn't know much about it and I can't seem to find much info online.

    That's a real head-turner.

    Sweet boat man.
    100 years from now, none of this will matter.

    Thanks guys. I gps at 64mph as she sits now but I know I can make more power with her. Just gotta learn the ropes of boating first and decide what kind of build I'm going to do and probably need to start reading up on pumps as my current knowledge is 0%. This shall be a fun ride.

    Nice boat and welcome to jet boating. There is a ton to find out as I have been doing it for a little while and feel like I dont know shit! LOL! Lots of tricks and adjustments coming your way if you wanna go fast. Good lucks and be safe.
