My Dad was friends with Bill (Gaylord Boats) as he used to build trailers for him. From conversations over the years I recall a Flat Bottom jet coming up in conversation and it didn't perform for shit as the pump is out of the water on plane. Bill was a regular at the enduros and tried a lot of stuff. I am not a jet guy and this is only from shop talk memories between my dad and Ken Meyers (B&K Boats) over the years.

Change the jet out for a split-bowl and put a droop snoot on it. Maybe Jetboatperformance will chime in.

We picked it up off the original owner built as a jet! The hull is in great shape!

Very cool! This boat was built as jet the hull is in great shape this could be that boat! I think your absolutely right about the pump being to far out of the water. The previous owner purchased a droop snoot it’s in the boat but never installed it. I’m a jet guy using the upper river most of the time.... I think it’s time to bring it back to life!
