    130 mph Placecraft jet boat video

    I made a change to the bottom of my jet boat and picked up 15 mph. This is 8 psi of boost and 7,000 rpm with the largest impeller I can fit into the jet drive. Now that the bottom of the boat works a lot better I'll start feeding the 711ci Hemi a bit more boost. I'm hoping to have her all...

    Toterhome vs Motorhome vs RV recomendations

    I have an old enclosed ramp truck that i use to haul my drag boat inside of. Recently, I considered converting the inside of it into living quarters and then towing a trailer behind it with the boat inside. Seemed like a solid idea until i hooked the trailer to it. It rode horribly and didn't...

    School me on generators and AC units for toy haulers

    Stand-up Jet Ski suggestions

    I live in Georgia and ride a 1994 Yamaha Superjet. It's basically stock with a ride plate and footholds in the tray. The single carb 601 motor has been super reliable. I'm gonna be taking a trip to Parker in July to a bit of boating on the lower river and wanted to buy another stand-up when I'm...

    Tested my Twin-Turbo Placecraft again. video...

    We are making strides. This was the first time I've driven it with boost. 8 psi of boost spun the engine 6,900 rpm with a 9.5" AAA-cut Dominator impeller. It's starting to feel fast now. lol -mike

    711ci Twin Turbo Placecraft lake test

    After chasing a few gremlins with the fuel and ignition systems I headed back to my local lake (Don't worry, I live at the lake and nobody is there right now so technically I'm avoiding humans. :) ) to see if I could go a little faster while tuning the efi system. Enjoy!

    My Placecraft Jet Boat build is finally on the water.

    Six or seven years after taking delivery of a bare Tom Peterson Placecraft jet boat hull and untold hours of wiring, plumbing and fabricating, I took my son out for its maiden voyage. Still needs tuning but it was super fun. There are a bunch of videos on my YouTube Channel, Finnegan's Garage...

    Is there a UTV that will launch a drag boat on a steep ramp?

    Right now I have a four seater Yamaha gas golf cart for getting around our neighborhood and down to the lake. it will barely tug my boat trailer out of the garage. It will never be able to launch my boat. Ive been kicking around the idea of buying some kind of 4wd UTV to replace the cart and use...

    Topkick/kodiak C4500 owners

    Right now I've got a 2010 Tundra DC 5.7 V8 4x4 that I doubt will safely pull a larger (28ft-plus) enclosed car trailer. I've got a friend who is selling an '03 Kodiak crew cab, 2wd, with about 250K miles on the chassis and 30K miles on a new duramax and injectors. It doesn't have air suspension...
