    Default 73 sanger super jet

    Here is a few pics of my new (to me) sanger. Just had a few questions from the folks in the know, the intake adapter that is in it is a h2768, do i still have to remove it to install a shoe or can i make one fit as is? Also is there any specifics i should know about this particular hull design?
    My old (current) boat is a 74 Kona with a BBC 505" that does a TRUE GPS 89MPH, whats the chances of getting the sanger to do the same or better?

    Im sure most will.agree ditch the shoe ridplate adapter and have ur intake machined for a real shoe rideplate setup. Especially for saftey at the speeds ur looking to run.

    My 75 bubble deck was very heavy. Don't know how it will compare to your Kona, light is fast.

    My 78 is very heavy also. And it did 67(gps) with the worn out stock motor this summer. The intake that is in your boat is the factory intake, and is actually specific to Sangers.(they came cast with the relief for the ride plate. and some dropped into the hull differently) I agree with the above statement, that if you want to shoe it you should buy a new/used intake and have it machined for a propper shoe/rideplate set up.

    The early Sangers up to 77 had a wider intake. The late 77 and up have a narrow width or standard intake. I would not be surprised if all the foam in tie bow and in the floor is soaking wet.

    I drilled the bulkhead that separates my motor box from under the floor. No running water but, the foam that came out on the drillbit was wet.

    All that foam needs to be removed as well as the foam in the Bow area ! I pull about 200lbs out of my Yellow Custom Sprint Sanger just in the bow !

    Do you have the transom ring/adapter for it?

    Hearsay is that the radiused strakes are not as fast as the steped strakes. Mine had soaked foam as mentioned and was removed. but more importantly check the floor directly under the front seats . You will notice the trailor bunks stop there and from the dash forward just cantilevers over and causes problems especially if the bow foam is saturated. yours also seems to be an earlier model with no transom bubble and a straight deck as well.

    thanks for the replies, very appreciated. As for the foam there is none in the bow at all, the floor is in awesome condition, but will be removed anyway to make room for full stringers. I so have the transom adapter for this boat, but am undecided on using it or doing a pump set-back or not, remounting the intake will be a pain. On my other boat i blueprinted the bottom and added a shoe/rideplate with a MPD loader, along with all the goodies in the pump. It is a really fun and fast lake boat for being on pump gas without nos or a supercharger, I just hope this hull will be alittle nicer (better built from the factory). here is a pick of the Kona i have now

    Heres a shot of my 72 kona I still have it but will be retiring it soon due to bottom issues. You know a lot of folks talk shit on Konas but I tell you this boat served me well . Run mid to high 70's all day long , with 450 hp and a tuned bottom and has what I consider to be decent looks.
