6th Street guys should know this boat and owner ... spoke to him, sounds like a great deal, intake might need to be reset for 90+ mph, but other than that, it is an MPD pump that was freshened by Tom Papp before his passing ... sounds like a steal, DJD you got any information on this ride?

That boat belongs to my budy Matt who moved to Tenesee. We used to run around in that thing all the time. I built a 468 tunnel ram deal for it and it would run rite at 100 with no problem. It is a 19 footer i believe not an 18 but it used to be a sweet ride. It is like a dark purple with yellows orange and red. The pump has a stainles impeller detailed by MPD and a brand new jetaway. The intake was set but it was slightly off when he set it so he never ran it since then and thats been probably been almost ten years. Thats the long and the short of it.

That boat was on the water probably 6 years ago. I remember it out there. I thought it was your buddy Matts.

It needs some work, but has a lot of potential.
Good Luck Dan. Watch out for 5 oh on the way out to Kalifornia.

Three things really. Being an 18 it had less room in it. Norm Evans (Moose) was cool enough to run by and check the boat for me (sorry to have wasted your time Norm). He gave it a clean bill of health and the seller was someone he knew. Very nice guy and a straight shooter. The seller was very honest with me on the phone and told me straight up that the boat was too light for a family type ride and from Norm's description he was right. By the sounds of it it's more like a 400 lb layup possibly even less than that.

Once again Norm. I know I thanked you half a dozen times for doing that for me, but I'm really grateful. A true hotboat brother.

Combination of things then................too small, too light, too far away, and a little higher than my budget would allow.

It would make someone a nice boat, but more for racing or maybe two people. Definitely not a family of four (sometimes five).

He might hit rush hour traffic by the time he gets there
Oh I'll hit it alright. Plan on leaving here about 5:00 am which will put me there about 9:30 or so.

You're right, it's a 19.

That's cool..............history. It won't be running that fast with my 650 hp BBF, but it'll be faster than my Kachina. Squirtcha? was a great ride and sturdy as heck, but heavy. You could stand four people on that deck and it would barely flex. Lots of great memories will go with that one.

brian, is there a reason other than being crooked set, that the intake would need to be reset for 100mph? never herd that before and i'm trying to get my 430lb tx into the 110's this summer.mb1201 dominator intake, 12s pump.ran 101mph a couple times last summer with the blown 475, just didn't have enough hp to go any faster or quiker, it'd run 98 all day long.

From what I'm being told the intake was not set properly to begin with. It's not being reset to get to
100. It's being reset so it handles properly. Apparently it would get a little unruly after the 90's.

According to the seller they took the boat in to Tom Papp to see if it could be fixed thinking it might
have a hook or something. I guess Tom took some measurements and discovered that it had a very
small amount of hook (negligible), but that the intake wasn't set right (it's crooked). Here's where it
gets a little cloudy. I'm not sure if it's off left to right, up and down or what. Anyway that's where it
got left at. I guess they decided not to mess with it and so she sits.

I went and talked to Dan Nelson (Jett Performance Marine) here in Phoenix and I'm all set up to take
the boat in when I get it back here . He'll put it back right again. I like to do things myself, but I don't
want to mess with the intake.

Here's a couple more pictures. Like I said it needs some TLC but it has a lot of promise.

since youre resetting the intake anyways. you might as well set it back far enough to clear the handhole from the transom and get rid of that goofy transom cover. make sure to put a pump brace in too

you can build plates without setting back the pump, i'm doin it this summer if i keep mine. sure makes it easier to get the bowl off, don't know wtf i was thinking when i built the pump, should've done mine then:)st


thanx for clearing that up squirt, never had an ill handling issue with mine, its on rails above 90 , i've even had to make a slight turn doin 95+ and it did it with grace.

All part of the master plan. The goofy transom cover will be the first thing to get peeled off it
and the pump will be setback approximately 2" to clear the transom. A nice set of transom
plates and a pump support.
