So I picked up a 1979 witchcraft 19' phantom with trailer for 300 bucks I just couldn't pass it up! the boat needs a jet pump and motor I have done crazy research and decided to go wankle rotary. The original configuration was a 150hp johnson outboard that didn't come with the boat. I have a local fiberglass shop making the hull modifications necessary for jet pump conversion. I am still looking for more info on this setup i have seen write ups and youtube videos but there all lacking the basic information required. i'm not looking for a blown or turbo setup just a holly carbureted 12a. I Need to know how these guys connected the jet pump,.. gearing.. etc. Thoughts? Will be posting pics with progress!

welcome ,I'm just on the other side of the border from you. I think you should plan to go turbo. once you've got it in the water for a while ,you'll want to. those things make CRAZY power turboed.

I have been entertaining that thought. I just wanted to stay under 12k for the restore.... the new gel and hull mods are going to use a nasty chunk of that money. Do you know of a place to get one? I have tried foreign engines out of Seattle but.... out like always.. I bought a 84 rx7 to rob the first 12A block from but a spare 13B wouldn't be a bad idea!
