Not my boat. My buddy is having this thing built and it’s insane. Full carbon Kevlar layup all the way to the seats.

This thing is amazing and cant wait to see it all come together.

Stupid question from a guy who owned a jet boat many many moons ago- what is the housing on top of the Jet?

It relives the pressure from the bowl so when you let off the throttle at high speed you don’t turn your jet boat into a submarine

@Jgrabowski72 would you mind sharing who did the polishing, I am always looking for a good cylinder head and intake polisher. Bitchen build, thanks for sharing!

We have a good polisher that is reasonable and I am right down the street from you. He picks up and delivers.

So is eliminator laying these up and letting other people rig them?

The last couple of 21s all seem to be speciality built (non Merc racing power with a lot of custom one off hardware).

Turbos and pickleforks just seem like a marriage made in heaven, I was amazed when Hass Stepp put his together and how it ran.

That is going to be an amazing boat. 👍

im not ships personnel so I’m not entirely sure but I think it’s emissions regulations with jet boats.

I suspect they may be willing to do a complete outboard build?
I may be wrong there.
You should contract them to build you one so we can find out😎👍

Awesome build. So nice to see somebody build headers the way it should be with the room you have. Braces for the turbos?
