That brings back memories. My first jet was a 79 Nordic and I loved that boat. It handeled excellent at WOT (76 mph) and could have taken a whole lot more. That is a great hull IMO. Very nice!!!

what size carb are you running, be very careful running the single top tunnel its known to lean out the front cylinders "on oldsmobiles", if you are checking the plugs after idling they will fool ya, take a good hard pass then shut her down and check the plugs.

carb is a 750 pumped up to a 925. checked the plugs after a hard run looked awsome!!!! I built it to run 5200 with all the oil mods, of course I dont keep it there for more that 5 sec or so. But I am happy and its a great handling boat, good for the family too. also anyone know where I can get a tow bar for this with the tunnel ram?

The boat looks great. I love the decal in the back window of your tow rig. It is always nice whan a boat finally gets back on the water.
