Love it.....a little tail heavy......
You know, when it's sitting or we are floating, I need to be a little careful of water coming up (I also have 3 bilge pumps). Other than that, it rockets up on plane, and it's amazing how great it does in the slop, it's amazing. I have always heard that the 21's are some of the better handling hulls Eliminator produced. If you have ever ridden MX, it's like you can wheel tap over the whoops when it gets rough! =)

this is badass. What motors? How does she run?
Late 90’s 200’s, just had a full run through by Joe at hot laps. This was actually Joe’s boat years ago, and then ended up back in the Kalibat’s hands, which is who I picked it up from.

The wrap is off it now, and Detail Dan went to town. These are is it sits right now.

You need balls to run a number like this. Can't tell you the looks we used to get, people spray painting over the number, etc.

Old ski racing jet boat. Won a few championships with it in Jet Class in Circles and Marathons.

Gale Banks Twin Turbo setup with Holley Dominator carb, 560cu BBC, built by Bob Teague. Jack McClure race prepped Berkeley JG (stainless AA,. inducer, all the good stuff) and race Place Diverter. Compared to modern setups, this is pretty old school. Jet wasn't even set back like about every modern jet today.

Why is it boats are so BITCHEN!! What's the attraction? I look through this thread as well as others and just absolutely love looking at all the different boats. There are fast boats, slow boats, big boats small boat, open bows, closed bows and cuddys. Outboards, in boards, jets and props with a full spectrum of colors with every imaginable paint/gel design. Yes, I like the cars too, give me a convertible SS Chevelle any day but these damn boats, its just addicting. OK, i'm done, going to look at more boat pictures :D

Love to see another 82 Eliminator on here. Any plans on going to Eliminator regatta this year? I'd love to see a an old boat meetup for the regatta.
I'm hoping to make it this summer. I REALLY wanted to go last year but boat repairs kept us from going.
Beautiful bow rider you have there!! She looks pretty clean!
