I would like to run with you in the Lower River Run this year. Those 280's? Great boat.
They are 260's, I overheated 1 of my motors last year at the Lower River Run, hopefully have it back together for this years run.

That sucks. I assume sand plugged up your intakes?

I like your Eliminator. The back "deck" between the rear seat and transom, is this an aftermarket install or is it stock? Regardless, if you have a moment, can you take some pictures open and closed? I have a similar hull (Hallett Sport Skier) its posted in this thread, and I don't like the rear seat/battery/storage set up. Yours looks perfect....Thanks

Thanks man I appreciate the kind words. I had the interior redone about 9 years ago and just told them I wanted a 2 foot hatch on the rear for storage and to get people sitting in the back away from the motor. It has really worked out well. When I go to the river next I will snap some pics the boat is stored out there.

1987 Eliminator 23 Daytona restomod 400R
Fresh interior and hatch from the original Checkmate factory, 900W Polk Audio amp, Polk Audio 10” subs, a pair of Infinity 6.5” speakers up front and a pair of 6”x9” Infinity speakers in the rear. Good balance of budget, weight, and sound. The subs are in boxes in the gunnels firing into the cabin.

Just added spray rails and a center pod from a 30 Speedster, sprayed gel 2 nights ago and waiting to block sand it out, flip it over and run it to check out the changes.

Thanks! The holes under the bow are for docking lights. It's a polarizing subject. People either love them or hate them. I personally don't care for them but they were there from original and fit the vibe of the boat; plus I replaced the darn things with new ones and after spending the money, and there's a lasered name for the switch on the dash, I'm keeping them. If I did it all over again I would ditch them, but I originally was nervous about making that repair and matching gel. Obviously that doesn't phase me anymore, but what's done is done, so they're staying.

ok, i'll bite....why lights under the boat? maybe I could see on a dive/rescue boat but a pleasure boat ? looks like another access point for water to gain entrance adding one more trouble spot. I admit they look cool when on at night but other than that, is there an actual purpose?

The only time I’d ever turn them on is loading on the trailer in the dark, or on vacation navigating the skinny river in the pitch dark coming back from the water ski show.

Trust me, I’ve had those thoughts too. These things are sealed quite well.

As I had stated, I’m definitely not in love with them but have put a ridiculous amount of effort in keeping them for originality, so I’ve taken measures to ensure they are very well sealed. There was plenty of proof of that when I went to remove them for bottom mods.
