How fast are the really fast jet boats?

Tue, 10/28/2014 - 19:31
Hey guys...I just bought a 1982 Sunkisst tunnel. I was told the boat had been 100mph with the guys other motor but it went 84 on the gps with the current engine I got with the boat. The engine is gone now and I am in the process of building a turbo big block with the C&S blow thru carb setup. People are telling me around here that jet boats can't go 100 but I see some fast ones on this site. How fast are the ones that really kick butt? Here is a pic of mine.... Attached Thumbnails  

[For Sale] 1974 Pinto Wagon

Tue, 10/28/2014 - 19:18
Unfortunately time to sell my '74 Pinto wagon. My daily driver for 5 years, runs exceptionally well. Originally came with a 2.0l 4-speed, the original owner converted it to a 2.3l C3 auto. Odometer shows 156,490 miles, but it's not accurate as the big and littles make the speedo off by about 15%. Not a big deal though since this car has been maintained & modified better than far newer cars.
New: radiator, starter, distributor, Esslinger adjustable cam sprocket (currently 2* advanced), motor mounts
Very recently replaced: 2.3 shortblock bored 1mm over, rack, spring bushings, rear shocks, carpet, water pump, battery, Comp Cams (higher lift, tad more duration). Custom carb spacer to raise the intake plenum.
AM/FM/CD/USB/ stereo, 6" 2-way front speakers, 6x9 2-way rear speakers. Needs a few things, and has the normal dings (what 41 year old car doesn't?), but is a blast to drive. There's more I'm sure, but it's a car you have to see to appreciate.
Located in Anaheim, CA $3,500 obo Attached Thumbnails          

Sidewinder Splash Drama..

Tue, 10/28/2014 - 19:16
I was doing a bit of research on sidewinder today and stumbled across some legal documents... I've always been into Carlson's and haven't really paid much attention to sidewinders.. But after reading the court documents and thinking about (and trolling) some other boats it makes sense... There were A LOT of early 70's boats that looked EXACTLY like the sidewinder design - including the GT-150 from Glastron..

I'm not so much of a newb that I don't know about "splashes" but I had never realized that sidewinder got raped so hard ... I read they basically based their design on the dupont car from back then.. Was there anyone before them that was similar to their design or were they truly the first?

Smaller (16-23 or so..) Boats with Center Stick?

Tue, 10/28/2014 - 18:49
I like the idea of having a center throttle like the Baja Sidewinder or Scarab 23 SCS... Are there other "affordable" boats that have/had this setup? I believe some of the smaller CC Stinger's had this setup as well - although they did not have a true "pod" but just the throttle thrown in between the driver and the right hand passenger with center steering as well .. Not really what I'm looking for..

Engine BBC wanted

Tue, 10/28/2014 - 18:45
Looking for a complete or close to complete BBC set up for a circle boat. Not looking to spend a fortune since I just had my first kid but want something with decent power. Single carb deal would work for the time being. Have cash. Or if its out of my price range have a 64 Lincoln Continental (project) I could get rid of.

Is this oil pan acceptable?

Tue, 10/28/2014 - 18:40
Obviously was built. Pickup has been extended to opposite end of pan. Pretty rough on the inside but not terrible on the outside. It was on a motor but not sure if it was ever ran with it. If it's legit I'm going to re-chrome it and run it. Any idea on capacity?
