    Default some newb questions

    Were near wyoming (rock springs), can i find a shop to bring my pump to have it looked at.. i have what i belive are mixed parts from a berkly and american turbine pumps or maybe 2 different american turbine pumps.. but i need to get 1 working pump together that is worth putting behind my dads boat.. he has alot of time and money put into it and i dont want to ruin everything with a crappy pump or impeller..

    also i need to know were to get seats to match my dads boat..

    i will post pictures later to see if u guys can help me figure me out about the boat, i belive it is a 19" stealth if i remember correctly..

    No help here at all? am i a leper?

    So let me try to explain my situation.


    My dad has been a jet boater since i was a baby, once my parents divorced my dad stopped boating for a long time and had just started getting this boat together after it sitting for several years.. then last Tuesday march 8th 5 days before his 50th birthday my father passed away out of the blue from an unexplained heart attack..

    My father and i were very close and i learned alot about boating and jet boats from him, but now that i have inherited his boat i am feeling like i never learned enough or what i need to know to get it together without his help, but i know with my mechanical aptitude i will eventually figure it out.. just looking for connections and hint i guess

    No you are not a leper...... This weekend is the Puddingstone races so activity will be a little slow until later tomorrow night. As stated GS is an excelent place to call/start.or you can get ahold of Tom at Jet Boat Performance in Atascadero, Ca. or you can call Jim Brock at Cyclone Speed and Marine in Pacoima, Ca. I know these are out of your area but these guys all know their chit and will take care of you.
