    Default 79 Sanger super jet overhaul

    I figure now that most peeps are done boating for the season I will start a build thread on my Sanger over haul.

    We all know how what appears to be a minor repair snowballs into a major undertaking.

    What started out as a sub floor delam issue evolved into a full and complete make over.
    Here is the before picture.

    Default maiden voyage

    Took her out after the repair for a trial run and then all hell broke loose.

    Went to the cove where everyone was hanging out on the lake. Made a few passes with the better half, then decided to make a solo pass.

    Made my pass and then headed back to the beach,then my feet was greeted with a wall of water. I thought what the hell, maybe the bilge stopped working so I turned around and all I saw in the bilge area was about 8” of water.. Said oh $hit I have a big problem…
    Boat was still running and I was about 300-400 yards off the beach, so I hit the gas and headed straight for the beach. Beached it and got it on the trailer.
    Here are the results of my trip.

    Default getting ready to take it to the glass shop

    So we get the boat home and ready to go to the glass shop for the crack repair.

    Left the boat at home and went to get it during lunch to run it to the glass shop after work. When I got home i saw this...

    The tanks where full as i only ran it for a short time before it cracked. It was 100+ outsde and my damn tanks boiled over and ate the paint off the side of the boat. Once this happened i figured i have been wanting to change the paint schme a bit.. hence snowball part three...

    Default Snowball part 4

    well since i had to rip out the sub floor to repair the crack in the hull, might as well change it from 1/4 stringer sled to a full stringer sled.
    So the old stringers and bulk head where removed and replaced with full stringers and new bulk head.
    We added a piece of quater round in the radius of each lifting strake to avoind this from happening again. We also added a complete layer of glass on the floor from the bilge area forward.

    This is where sge is at now, I need to save up some cash to buy the paint so we can reapaint the whole sled.

    Next I cut that ugly ring off the back. Made it way easier to set the pump back. Put full length stringers in it and new bulkheads and capped the deck back on so far.

    X2 on keep going with the progress of both hulls! I very interested in seeing the SuperJet's Bottom, and its shape. I'm getting ready to start on a Brendella Jet. The bottom is very, very similar to the Sanger Super Jet! Nice work by the way guys!

    I agree, both of you are doing a great job. Flattie, start a new thread for your build and remember to add lots of pics. I too have a SuperJet that I capped and regelled last winter. this winter mine gets a new motor/mounts and possibly a full stringer conversion.

    I hope you have plans to add a round keel from the delta pad they have now. Just my .02 if not you did a ton of work for no gain.
    I love My Sanger, but they have some issues with power and other mods.
    Boat is looking great!
