    Can't leave anything alone so I decided to install a 555 BBC out of my offshore boat into my jet boat. Should be around 650 to 700HP. I have a 1984 Hallett and am wondering how you access the back side of the stringers? I have not pulled the carpet back yet but I am hoping that part of the...

    What to look at Barn find

    I am going to look at a sanger hydro v-drive that has been sitting for 20 years under a tarp. I have never had a v-drive and hoping someone can tell me what to look for. The main reason I am interested is this boat seems to have some history and ran a quad turbo motor back in the mid to late...

    Great last day of Boating for the season

    Saw it was going to be nice one last weekend. Took the family out and enjoyed a pretty empty Lake Tahoe with some friends. Finally got to try out the new Lightning exhaust I put on and the boat ran great. We are ready for spring. Hopefully we will get plenty of snow. Was still a pretty...

    And back on the trailer

    Launched the boat, started it and went to go in revers and back on the trailer. Boating would of been awesome but we still had fun at the beach. Tahoe is absolutely empty this time of year.

    Winter project costs-bottom rash

    Finally got my first jet boat and love it. The boat is in super great shape but the bottom looks horrible. Any estimates on what something like this would cost to make looking like new? The boat is a 1984 Hallett. I plan on adding some big N/A power and some jet work as well over the...

    Got my new boat home from southern California knowing I had to get a new trailer and had no idea it was this hard to give someone money to build you something. I am in Sparks NV and the closest boat trailer builder I could find who would even talk to me was in Anderson CA called SB Trailer...

I also did some of my own polishing but had the exhaust professionally done and they turned out great. I used a harbor freight 7 in polisher 3m compound Chemical guys heavy boat...

    If you had to buy a new boat trailer who?

    I just bought my first jet boat and it is exactly what I was looking for but it desperately needs a new trailer. The boat is a Hallett 21 open bow if that makes any difference. I live in Reno and have no issue going back down to Southern California (just bought it from there) as I see a lot of...

    Why Dual-plane manifolds?

    I have been looking at a lot of jet boats as I am interested in buying something. I have seen a lot of boats with dual plane manifolds if not the classic dual carb tunnel ram setup. Is there a reason or just lower powered motors that wouldn't benefit from a single plane?

    My plans are to build a big power day cruiser (have not found a hull yet) and was planning on doing a twin turbo setup as I think it is such a cool combo but I came across a good deal on a 8.3L whipple with intercooler, dual dominators and intake.

    Cost or hassle to swap a BBF to a BBC

    I am looking at buying a jet boat and have not decided on anything yet but I have seen a lot of boats that I like but they come with a BBF. I have no experience with jet boats so I was wondering what would it cost to convert it to a BBC? Is it a pain in the butt? I know I will need new motor...
