    Jacuzzi YJ with hydraulic trim. I'm interested in the trim if you want to sell it.

    They are probably the least desirable pump out there. No one with a performance boat wants them. Stock replacement parts are somewhat available but they are expensive. Most people convert them with an energizer kit. If you love the boat I would not pass on it just because of the YJ pump but be repaired to spend some money either converting with a kit or changing to a Berkeley if you want to go any faster than 60 MPH.

    The only reason I was interested in the trim is because I have a YJ in my 25' cruiser. It will never be fast so I am not converting the pump.

    That is a decision you will have to make. I can promise you that it is much less expensive to buy a complete lake ready boat than it is to restore one. Especially out there where you are judging from the (818) area code. My Rebel was free and had a YJ pump in it. I have way more inverted in it than I would have paid for a nice clean lake ready boat with a Berkeley pump. You can get a really nice lake ready boat for 4K-7K. You will have more than that invested in that boat by the time you do interior, motor and pump change. Then you have to consider the structural repairs you may need to make to the floor, transom and stringers.

    Things I would consider: Are you looking for a project? How fast do you want to go? Are you good with tools? Do you have a budget?

    Not trying to scare you off. I have seen people pay more for less. From what I can see the trailer is probably worth the $300. And you can make a little of that $300 back by selling the trim to me.

    Yes The parts are still being produced in small quantities as also "Mixed flow Upgrades/conversions " are available as well , these jets work well when thier intended design is kept in perspective they are a workhorse jet and , very durable, they do not respoond well to added horsepower (much beyond 350 to 400 range)

    Thanks for the help. Your right about project boat vs turn key. If it had a berkly I think I would have done it. If you want the number pm me I will send it to you.

    Good luck with your hunt. Sent you a PM for his number. I am not interested in the entire boat but I would like to have the trim system off of it.

    Buy it,, Part it out and make triple of what you paid for it, and then you have more money for a complete boat!!! Thats what I would do! The trailer is worth at least 800 to 1000...
