    Default TX-19 Jimmy Johnson build

    Drove 14 hrs straight to pick her up, after work and without sleep got home and already started making progress! It's got a bad drivers side stringer and various other things but nothing a willing and ready new owner can't handle! I have always loved these boats and cherished their design and functionality! I am retiring my v-bottom to a little stock lake boat and putting my monster motor in this one! Any suggestions on proper stringer replacement and do's and don'ts and what type of wood?

    Thank you. I'm trying to find out any info on this boat at all? Looking at the bottom it has a hook in it in the last two strakes towards the outside of the boat? I bought this thing to flat out haul ass, I have a v-bottom now that runs mid 90's and i am putting my motor out of it into this TX. This boat has been neglected!! I am having to gut the whole interior in terms of the stringers, bulk head, and transom. I think through the years it had lots of hp in and out of it! The driver side stringer is broken and delamed from the bottom! If anyone has any info on this boat please let me know? Thank you in advance!

    Yea I bought it sight unseen up close..just always saw it at the lake. I wasn't told the stringers were bad or that it needed anything but gas. Whoever did the rigging needed to be slapped. It ran good and sure turned heads. From what I know, it came from OKC bought by Chop, then as soon as he got it home Peanut holder bought it and had it painted in late '03-early '04. When he passed away Robbie Barret had it for a year with a 14 or 15:1 555 in it, then my wifes cousin Tim Scott bought from Robbie and went through a pieced together 427 then the 475 that was in it when I had it. Glad to see it'll be fixed right for once.

    Hey Cory, not meaning you. You were just the middle man I'm trying to find deep history interms of the hook and if it was a known problem in the boats over all performance? It's a fine boat and deserves the attention it's going to get! Cory, for the price you sold it to me for was more than fair even if the stringers are bad!!!!

    Yea I didn't take it that way, just letting ya know I wasn't too happy when I saw those things either. I knew you'd have to put a lot of work into it so I tried to give you a good deal. I sure hate not seeing it at the house but it just sat there. Chop might know abot the bottom, I know he did the pump work so he might know more abot the bottom. It wasn't a problem when the last owner had it, he was running probably a hair over 100 on the bottle and it went straight.

    With the type of motors it had in it, it should have ran near a 100 or a hair over on motor. That's whats making me believe either it's not rigged right or the hook is coming into play?

    It was a 13.5:1 475, 67x motor, 96x on the bottle on Gearheads dyno. It was running fairly wet, not airing out like it should. I was going to add a diverter but never got around to it.

    The hook will tend to make them run wet. A diverter may or may not help it? What did you say it was running off the bottle with 3 of you in the boat? Anyone want to chime in?

    I'd say Most of the boats I beat we're in the low to mid 80's. I forgot my gps so I don't have an exact mph. The last time it was raced it was dead even with a low 100's boat on the bottle.

    Where are you located? As Cory said, Chop had the boat early on and can offer some history as well as a great amount of TX-19 setup info. You can contact him at 903-733-1601.
    Two persons come to mind in our area that are well adept at gullwing stringer replacement, gullwing bottoms as well as Jimmy Johnson construction history. Boat have constructed many gullwings.
