Hey guys im just bought a 78 Tahiti with an aluminum AA impeller and i have a have a motor from a v-drive that im throwing in it. Ive never restored a boat before so im sure ill have a ton of questions. Just wanted to say whats up and im looking forward to the project. Also does anyone have any ideas on building custom seats and upholstering them yourself?

Looks like a fun project. First step is to throw away the wallet cause now you wont have any money to put in it. lol, And start drinking:drinkin: heavily, :notsure: seams the boats from heavy drinkers are faster than they normaly would be.

second step is to kiss the wife /girlfriend good by:)sphss cause she will not take second seat :|err to a boat.
Everything else is just a chain reaction of the above.

Oh yes, before you just throw that V drive motor in the jet change the oil pan and pump pickup, its on the wrong end of the motor for a jet boat. Might consider a cam change as well.

Welcome aboard. :)hand
now start drinking
