    Bought a new engine to put in this out of a 72 corvette.. 454 thats basically fully rebuilt and heard it run before buying it.. should run great.. also have it out getting detailed and cleaned up. so coming together.. AND No im not keeping it.. it will be for sale once its done.. now if it was a v-drive i'd prolly have to keep it lol

    Nice looking hull and congrats on the new project.

    What is the overall length of the boat?

    no it was stored under a boat cover the past 3 years.. the rust on engine is from moisture under the tarp.. the hull is pretty solid.. couple pieces of engine cover neeeds the wood replaced.. but all in all its a fairly solid boat.. with a lil work i think it will clean up nice..

    thanks for the welcome to the boards but i have been here for 5+ years lol.. just a die hard v-driver so new to this section.. i just picked up the Squirt boat cause it was too nice to let it go to waste any longer.. dont know what jet boats are worth and fiured once its cleaned up and running its gotta be worth something lol.. if it was a V-drive i'd pretty much know what its worth.. just dont know jets that well.. ok.. AT ALL lol 1st jet boat ..

    Good looking boat though. Welcome to the boards. It's a sickness that never pays off. Good luck with it, keep us posted as you bring her back to life.

    picked up a small project today..

    1986 Eagle mini day cruiser jetboat with 454 & Panther jet.. boat is all original Gel is in need of a buffing but it will clean up nice.. interior is still in decent shape.. No Rips and still soft .. engine is questionable.. either starter is rusted up or moisture got in motor .. The trailer is in super nice shape.. and says stamped in it Eagle Boats so all original boat/trailer.. now the fun begins.. will be for sale eventually.. any idea what it might be worth in cleaned up and running shape?
