    73 Spectra 20 Jet

    No thanks to trading for a Jeep. My plan is to sell this boat and my Samurai in order to get a deck boat. Here's a shot of the new deck and alum tank from one side. I also replaced the bulkhead under the deck. It has the access point and cut outs for 10" subwoofers that I have not put in.

    73 Spectra 20 Jet

    I have decided to sell my 73 Spectra 20 jet. It has a 468 Chevy and Berkeley jet. Both are rebuilt and in fact still breaking in. The motor has a Holley 850 carb, Edelbrock Torker manifold, Mallory ignition and runs very strong. The boat was painted when I bought it and the upholstery was 'new'...

    GOTTA GO FAST

    Thanks for the pix. Looks nice. I am wondering if the boat is still for sale as a previous post from last month looked like someone else was interested. I am interested if the boat may be sold as mentioned without the motor. I cant afford the motor. I have a decent motor in my Spectra 20...

    GOTTA GO FAST

    Did you ever sell this boat? If not, do you have some more pix of the interior and trailer?

    Bumper fender mount inserts?

    I was unable to get the pix to copy into here but it sounds like Perko fender locks. A search at westmarine.com will show the pix. I have them on my boat to secure the bimini top straps.

    Need Insurance

    Well I have this project to a point that I can put this thing in the water tomorrow. Now all I need is insurance. My company (Geico) doesn't insure older jet boats (Spectra 20) and searching on-line for marine insurance, it seems no one else does either. Any references out there? Especially a...

    Need an Approximate head count Spectra Get Together Aug 6th - 8th

    I might like to come out and meet some folks and see some Spectras on Sunday (I work Saturday nights). Would anyone be left there or does everyone head back early Sundays? I live out here and don't need the lodging.

    Steering fin

    What I referred to as hunting was the boat would want to go a little off course, both left and right, at near full throttle or about 50+, feeling a bit squirly. The water was smooth and there was nothing really in the boat as far as gear. It was only at or near top speed. I have the floor...

    Steering fin

    OK, I'm convinced to replace the fin - now if I could find a direct replacement! The fin I have is bolt thru, 9" long and 4" deep. The fin at Rex Marine is longer and deeper (6.5" deep I think). Do they even make bolt thru fins any more. The few that I have found say they are "drop thru"...

    What size plywood for floor?

    I bought 3M Bondo fiberglass resin at Home Depot. My neighbor is helping me out and suggested that was fine. I bought that before I posted for any input on this site.

    Steering fin

    I actually don't have a ride plate or any trim control. The bowl is also the older style one piece, not a split. That particular ride was on smooth water, only two of us in the boat and not a bunch of junk (ice chest, anchor, etc). There was no gas in the left tank and about 15 or so in the...

    Polypropylene Gas Tanks?

    They don't say anything about baffles. This manufacturer seems to be the largest as they are everywhere I search. They make both above deck (pontoons) and below deck applications. http://store.easternmarineoutlet.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=catalog.prodInfo&productID=8703&categoryID=483

    What size plywood for floor?

    I'll fix that bulkhead...don't want a dip in my deck. :eek:

    Polypropylene Gas Tanks?

    Anyone have opinions, pros or cons on polypropylene tanks? I would have to check the height after putting in the floor but these tanks might work. And a lot cheaper than aluminum. My neighbor races outboards and uses poly tanks - at over 100 mph.
