I recently bought a project boat, an 89 Wellcraft 20' daycruiser. It had an outdrive and the guy I bought it from was in the process of converting it to a Berkeley jet and cut the hole for the jet already.
He's a pretty good fabricator so the work is clean, but I only got the jet with no transom cover which is no big deal since I can buy one used, but I had a few jet drive questions.
I don't know the model of my Berkely, but which is the best setup as far as impeller type and what not for performance? Also is there a peak efficiency as far as rpm for these impellers? If so I'd like to put as small a V8 as possible to save fuel while still being able to reach peak rpm for the pump.
Alot of these terms are new to me, I'm a novice boater but I have built engines for many years so bear with me while I learn from you guys.---Jim
