  1. New to jets, not new to boats.

    New member Introductions
    Hi there, I'm looking at buying my first jet boat in a few weeks and figured I'd join this site to find some help and advice. I grew up around boats, but haven't been boating in probably 20 years. I've always wanted to play with a big American V8, and figured this would be a good way to get...

  3. Want to get into Jets. Never owned a boat and have questions!

    Jet Boats
    I've never owned a boat but can't think of anything I'd enjoy more than a boosted (screw/roots or turbo) big block Jet. I've built turbo and roots blown cars and want to have some fun on the colorado river since it snakes through our land. Occasional lake runs would be likely as well. I don't...

    Jet Boats
    Just thought I'd make sure that all classic jet boats (pre 1990) know they are welcome to participate at the 4th Annual Havasu Hot Boat Show & Shine on Saturday, November 19 at Lake Havasu State Park (on the grass). The Show & Shine is a part of the Sand-Water-RV Expo. There is no entry fee...

  9. Power Cat..... One or two jets

    Jet Boats
    Brand new to Performance Boats. Looking at building a power cat. Just gathering info. Maybe 7.5' beam and 22' loa. Give or take. Want it to bank somewhat in turns so thinking of asymmetrical hulls similar to a Skater design. Had two Honda jet skis and put a Subaru SVX motor and...

    1976 Spectra Daycruiser running a ZZ502 Chevy crate motor with a tunnel ram and 660 center squirter Holleys. Have the carbs jetted with 72s which was ideal at sea level in Virginia. I'm living in Colorado now and thinking about bringing the boat out here. Will I need to change jets in the carbs...
  15. Disparity between Jets and V-drives

    PB Open Water
    I've been around boats my whole life but still don't grasp why there is such a rivalry between jet boat guys and v-drive guys. And let's be honest, even the roll bar boats can be lumped in as v-drives since the majority of them are small v-drives these days. And this is for Nice Pair...it...
  16. Quick Jets running low MPH

    Jet Boats
    Gotta say Phoenix was great. But most of all , I really enjoyed seeing some real quick jets running low MPH. DeClark running 6.05 @ 114 mph & 6.07 @112mph Starkweather running 8.02 @ 122 mph And that's barely bumping the spray to run the number. There's no telling how quick these boats would run...
  17. Turbo Jets Good Showing This Year

    Jet Boats
    Not trying to get anything started. :)Unsure I know we finished 2nd in points SDBA and 3rd in Lucas Div 2 and Div 3. One race win and one runner up. Looks like Fry finished 2nd in Lucas Div 1. Not bad if you ask me. Only two of us running turbos.
  18. Smokn in the cove Race . V drives n Jets

    Races and Boating Events
    Just thinking about it , after 25 years of racing there in the 6 second class, there has only been only 1 (one) jet boat that has gone thru the rounds to win the 6s , Donny Little. Is it that the drivers of V drive boats are much better racers,drivers than the jet boat drivers ? :shock: 1 win...
