19' gullwing. It's probably not as bad as what you remember if you had a semi-v. Definitely one of the best riding jets I've ever driven (or been in for that matter).. Just got one and am running it for the first season. It's pretty darned smooth.Wow thats a nice set.
I sure miss my jet boat, but dont miss the back pain

me too we went out sunday and i was hoping to get a nice air'd out upclose shot of me making a pass, but i got sidetracked(blew a inlet water line in 2) and by the time i got back from town with parts, i was ready to drinkhandI either forget the camera, or forget to get it out. Maybe this weekend.
Saw you taking him out last season? maybe the season before and making some passes. I had heard he was going to be running it, but hadn't seen it in a while.Old race boat converted to a river boat. In 1982 Norm Grimes and myself put a .030 over 454 together. Ran the boat for a long time with a small shot of nos. 2 years ago I built a 572 for it and ran a 300 shot of nos boat ran very good . During that time I really work on the set up and as you cam see it seems to have paid off. My son never really showed much intrest in the boat so I was surprised that he changed his mind this winter and showed a lot of intrest in running the boat by himself without dad in the boat. We pulled the 572 out , went thru the 460 and made it a 468 with compression and a small shot of nos once again Cub Scout is back on the water with a new driver. The 572 is probably going to end up in our newly aquired TPR 19.
my dad working on my motor wasnt the problem. a bad block is a bad block! nothing he could do about too thin of cyclinder walls. anyways, i have some extra help from gold cup leader himself....... mike miller! also im sure with shoe being the professional he is, he will hardware my boat to the best of his ability!!!!And for cale.... im glad him is getting some seat time, i wouldnt want him to be a push over.... lol, just playing cale! looking forward to the 4th.3d generation against 2nd generation should be a good race if 3d gen can get his old man away from the motor. I wonder if it will be like the old days ?
