Hello Folks My name is Karl Kostman and I am new to you site. I am from Fargo ND and YES its cold and heck here, you could drive your tow vehicle with the trailer and boat behind it ON TOP OF the ice right now, Ice fishing season is starting very quickly!
I grew up in the Detroit Lakes MN area and we had half a dozen different types of boats at any given time, when i was in Jr High school I got hold of a GW Invader, it was a 12 ft and I was running a 115 short shaft evinrude on that boat, with me alone in the boat I could take just about anything on the lake, that is until the 200 hp Evinrude V-6 came out, oh well! Having grown up on the lakes in MN and almost every day during the season being in a boat of some type it was kind of my life. Well I got older and started a company and owned that for 30 years and sold it 3 years ago an this summer my wife and I bought a lake home on Star lake in Ottertail County MN. I have a nice fishing boat and a pontoon but all my life I have wanted a jet boat, please bare in mind I have a lot to learn on this subject, but the boat I am thinking about would be a Sanger or a Hondo, I would like a BBC around 500 ci, I would like to think I can start out with a N/A engine just running a Holley Dominator of appropriate CFM. The heads would have to a pretty decent set of either cast iron or aluminum, dont really care there would have to be a pretty decent roller bump stick in the motor and everything setup accordingly! My goal is to have a good reliable low maint. engine that will put out very close to 600 hp, I am looking at a Berkely pump of some form again appropriate to this setup.
Now my Questions?
1. I need to buy a boat remembering where I live are there trustworthy services who i can hire to look at and evaluate boats for me, and give me a report back on if its a good boat or not?
2. What am I looking at in a 19 to 21 ft jet boat for weight, would this boat weigh 3500 pounds water ready?
3. How does a person figure out what is the best starting point for the type of impeller you are going to want to run?
4. On the engine, I know how to make great power for a drag car in both BBC and SBC configs, do all the same formulas work in a marine jet boat type of application?
5. OK now I hope i have been able to fully illustrate my level of being informationally challenged on this subject, What are some good suggestions of things to read, look at, listen to or whatever it takes to start learning about this really cool new subject?

Thanks you all very much for listening to me and any and all suggestions are appreciated.

Sincerely
Karl Kostman

Selling a tall deck bow tie block that’s mostly filled with block filler. It’s also a oring block with brass lifter bushings, and a bore of 4.560. Comes with a manley 4340 crankshaft that’s been double keyed freshly magged and polished, the mains were ground down 10. Also comes with manley steel rods and je pistons. All components have about 5-8 hrs of run time on them since last rebuild. The motor overheated last outing which is why it’s now currently apart. The crank was serviced and repaired due to cooked main bearings. Rods and rod bearings were luckily all in god shape. The pistons still look good and are round with minor scuffs on them with the exception of one which may need to be replaced. Also I have a short deck mooneyham blower manifold with spacers to fit the tall deck application. $2400 for everything listed above. Give me a call or text at 559-827-3655

So according to Insane Asylum Jim, I am a racist/white supremacist for posting this and the like.

I guess the truth is racist for those that hate the truth. :no:

[Question] Casale questions

Wed, 11/08/2017 - 01:31
I️ picked up a project boat out of storage for the past 25 years and finally got to tearing down the vdrive. This is my first split case so I️ want to identify what I️ have. With a Casale bearing puller and a 6inch fork puller I️ was able to disassemble the entire unit minus the bearings staying on the shafts. I️ measured the mid plate which is .5 inches thick. My input shaft is 1 3/8 and my output shaft measures 1 1/4. I️ am not close to the boat to measure the prop shaft and I️ don’t remember seeing a step down in the shaft coupler. Did Casale make these large input/output shafts back in the late 70’s? And is a 1 1/4 output shaft and prop shaft common in a 1978 21 foot schiada? I️ am familiar with 1” and 1 1/8” prop shaft but not 1 1/4.

My first race!

Tue, 11/07/2017 - 19:47
for the past 3 seasons I've been crewing for my dads flat. He went back boat racing after about 25 years away from the rope. We have had the time of our lives racing, learning, wrenching, blowing up motors and meeting some of the best people in this world. At the Octoberfest Parker race my dad asked me if I was ready to shoe the 506 boat! My jaw dropped and of course I'm ready. Or am I? I've never been in a flat, never pedaled one. I know them up and down, inside and out. Can tell you what the boat is doing but never felt the rush. So here come the world finals. I have all my gear. I have a good running boat. My wife gives me the green light. I'm going drag boat racing! I've been waiting 34 years to finally drive a flat that I've been around my entire life!! We arrive at firebird (will always be firebird to me). Set up our pits. Go thru tech and get a failing grade. Bilge pump doesn't work. Figure out the issue and pass tech. Let's go racing!!!! Friday first round of qualifying starts! I'm going drag boat racing!! We entire the staging lanes. Go they the check list. Everything is set for me to make my first ever pass in a flat! I'm On the rope. I know the starting process. I've got this. We chipped the boat at 6400 rpm's just so I couldn't get in any real trouble. I'm making my way to the line. Inching down the rope. It's go time!!! Lucas starter says "506 thumbs up when your ready". My thumb is pointed as far up in the clouds as it can be. Flip the ignition switch, fire the motor. I've got this!! Lights go solid. I'm actually going to fufill my life long dream! Lights go solid. Count down begins. Plate the boat and smash the loud pedal! Actually cut a decent light for the first pass ever. Boat takes a set. And I'm off. Banging he rev limiter from the 720' mark to the finish line Best feeling in the world. I'm running the ME class 10.00 index. I ran a 10.80 @91 mph. Can't wait to make 2nd round!!! I've got this!

Mako rebuild

Tue, 11/07/2017 - 18:18
So here is my winter project. First the back story, I crewed for Jim Ermshars BGF in the late 80?s and eventually built my own Mako that I ran in the 8.0 class for a short time. Fast forward 25 years and I?m gonna build another boat. I really wanted a Mako so I found this boat knowing it had a few ?issues?. Fortunately I have the right people to repair the hull for me so I?m confident the boat will be right when it?s done. It?s a solid hull so that is a good base to start. My old Mako was a typical 80?s style boat. I intend to do the same with this boat. (I love that era). I am going to strip it down to a bare Hull and start over with the floors then the installation and finish with a bad ass paint job. I?m digging the PCF class so that is my goal. Wish me luck and I will post up when I can. Attached Thumbnails
