Just made the deal on this original 1984 mini. I’ve been looking for my first boat for two years came across this and finally made the deal. From what I was told it was built the way it sits at the Sanger factory. ls 6 bored over to 468. 671 blower running 10 pounds of boost at WOT. 2 speed power glide. Let me know what you think I’m pumped up👍

V-bottom, v-drive with boost. What's not to like? That is a beautiful boat!

I’d say you scored man! That thing is super sweet and looks like it’s in great shape.

Where do you boat at? I’d love to see it in person sometime

I had the same boat (different color) with a Whipple charged 502. Great boat! Should have never sold it. Took a little time to get it propped correctly with the 29 gears. Enjoy it!

That looks like a beauty, I had a little bit of bad luck the first time out. We broke a lifter out on berryessa. I just tore the entire boat down for a full rebuild. The motor is at Rex Hutchison racing engines and we are doing some upgrades. Probably adding super chiller, roller cam, stainless through transom headers. All the rigging is getting gone through right now and i had the transmission rebuilt while it’s out. I’m most likely as doing a full new interior build with front buckets rear bench and full hatch. I will keep you posted as she comes together.

Just out of curiosity, what gears and prop are you running? I have a similar Sanger Blown Mini I’m re-rigging.

Actually I haven’t opened it up yet but when I do I will let you know. I may need to change gears and prop as I will be running a lot more power with my new motor. What are you running for power?
