Under 23' 1969 Sanger 18' jet boat $5000 obo

Wed, 06/22/2016 - 17:57
I'm looking to sell my project jet boat. It's more of a project than I can handle. i had it on the water once shortly after I bought it, but the original fiberglass fuel tanks were leaking, along with the jet intake. It's currently taken apart, Berkely JG jet with bronze A impeller, Chevy 454 engine. I have the original intake, and a spare with a ride plate. The fiberglass fuel tanks have been removed and I have a pair of Speedway Motors spun aluminum tanks to go with it. Original brown and yellow gel coat still on the boat, it's a 1/4 stringer boat, full interior and rigging,two sets of over transom headers, the ones that came with it are pretty rotten, so I picked up a set of ceramic coated ones. Not looking to part it out, and it's located in northern Alberta, Canada.

If you want more pics or are interested in it shoot me a text. 1-780-812-seven four seven zero.

Rogers Bonneville value

Wed, 06/22/2016 - 11:45
Decided its time to part ways with one of my boats, currently moved on to a more family oriented boat for now.
1975 Rogers Bonneville 18' that was once a circle race boat from all accounts and still set up as such. I put quite a bit of work into it about 10 years ago restoring it but haven't run it in the last 6-7 years. I'll be selling it less engine, I'm keeping the original twin turbo BBC for now.
It has full cav plates with override pedal, Factory set back pump with delta-pad, stainless impeller, place diverter, HTP straight snoot and center turn fin. The interior is petty much shot however.
Its a pretty cool setup hence my original interest in it. The hull will need some work I'm sure as its been covered up outside stored here in Colorado for yeas now.
I thought it may be of some value with the renewed interest in the comp jet class as this is one of the more desirable hulls and has lots of good hardware on it.
A friend of mine is interested here locally but honestly have no idea what its worth... Any input would be great!!

I'll try to post some pics, it really needs cleaned up.. Attached Thumbnails

Driveline Spacer

Tue, 06/21/2016 - 20:16
So it looks like I had some old grease boogered up when I measured my engine placement and now I'm a little far forward I believe. I've got just over an inch of shaft engagement with +/- 1/4" of the driveline inside the bearing cap seal. Is this ok to run on a standard 400ish hp lake/river deal or is there a driveline spacer available that I can throw in between the two halves? Photo is referencing amount of shaft inside bearing cap seal. Attached Thumbnails

Remembrances Fox's Snug Harbor, 1970 or so.

Tue, 06/21/2016 - 15:30
You know when you get older, you spendmore time reminiscing. Just the other day I had an event pop into myhead I had not thought of for probably thirty-five years. Of course,I tried hard not to think of it at all. From the moment that ithappened, it was known to myself and two others, my friend, Pat, andmy youngest brother, Chuck, as the Jerry Schwartz skiing incident. This incident took place, for those of you who are from southernCalifornia, at a place in Carlsbad known as Fox's Snug Harbor. Thishappened around 1970 or so.

A family friend Jerry,who probably wasfifteen years older than us, wanted to go skiing so a group of usheaded down to Fox's. Jerry towed any of us who wanted to ski. Thenhe said he wanted to ski and would I tow him? Now his boat was oneof those older cabin cruiser out-board type boats. It was probablyabout sixteen feet long deep v and maybe about a sixty-five horsepower Johnson clamped on back. Now, I had no amount of greatexperience driving a boat, although I had driven my dads boatsbefore. A direct drive in-board and a v-drive flatbottom underdirect supervision. But still, I was the only one there that hadeven a little experience. This coupled with the fact that I wasalways up for a new challenge and the fact that the boat was nowherenear to what I had already drove. So I said, “sure! What couldpossibly go wrong?”

So as Jerry got in the water, Ifamiliarized myself with the controls. A steering wheel and athrottle, no worries. My younger brother in the back had a ski flagin hand. My buddy, Pat, stood alongside him to back him up and tobare witness and the brunt of the pandemonium about to ensue. At thesignal, I nailed the throttle all the way to the stop. I felt sogood and in control as the big Johnson surged forward. The firstthing I noticed is that we were not gaining that much speed and thewater seemed to be going over the top of Jerry. However, he was atrooper and had come to ski. Ever so slowly, just barelyperceivable, we started to gain speed. I could see Jerry's head andbody start to rise. The boat planed over! We had made it! Almostimmediately I noticed a wake running parallel to us. I thought Iwould get in the wake and it would be smoother there. This is wherethe lack of experience comes in. I didn't cross the wake at a goodenough angle. When we came to the first roller, the bow of the boattook us right when I was thinking we were going left into the wake.

Several things happened at thatmoment. It was surreal. I remember being spun around and beingthrown to the floor. Seeing my brother spinning around, lose hisfooting, and bringing the ski flag down on Pats head and breaking it. I looked up seeing the steering wheel going back and fourth, leftand right, the throttle still pinned wide open. Motivated by sheerpanic and with spider monkey like reflexes I leaped up and grabbedthe wheel. Remember, this was a long time ago. I turned the boat ina gentle arc away from the beach avoiding Certain destruction, andour own demise, acting as if nothing had happened, or at least actinglike what had happened was planned, as our heart rates came down tosomething like at least back in our chest. We made a long anduneventful lap around Fox's Snug Harbor and dropped Jerry off.

After pulling the rope in and talkingamong ourselves about what happened, we headed in. I felt like twocents waiting for change. The funny thing is, not one person saidanything about it. Jerry thanked me for the tow. He did ask whathappened to the ski flag and we told him that it broke and that wasthe last word spoke of it.

Most of my ski towing after that waswith a v drive or a jet boat and without incident. Of course, therewas Havasu jet-cat caper. But that's another story for anothertime.

If it comes out of this administration, you can bet it's going to be a disaster. Of course I'm sure our resident idiots will say that this is a right wing source.
