    Josh, congrats on your "new" boat and welcome. I have a friend who had a charger and he said it was one of the fastest jetboats he'd ever been in!!! How is the motor stroked?? 454 or 427?
    What are you looking for in a boat??? You said it might not be the right one... Why??
    We gotta have pics!!

    Not sure about the 454 or 427 part how would i find that out? ive had it out a couple times now and im loving it.... The more i work on it the more i find that i find the guy i bought from wasnt about doing stuff right... I started to wire a bow and stern light up and ended up cutting all the wiring out and starting from scratch.... Any input on fuse blocks, gauges and switches? Thanks josh

    Looks like a lot of fun and could handle the waters in the Columbia... Why do you say it may not be the boat you want???? What are you looking for in a boat???

    Just never owned or driven a boat before this one... My wife loves it so i guess it was a good buy.... Any input on fly wheels? It makes a god awful noise lately so im pulling the motor tomorrow hopping something just got in it... But was thinking i might as well but a high quality one in while its out... Anything else i should check or replace while the morors out?

    Josh, You might want to start a thread on the jet forum. Maybe someone can steer you as to what to look for when you pull the motor.
