Re: Texas Jet Boat Fiberglass Repair

Yes, POC. And yes that place behind speedy stop is my dads. He has the other boat that they popped a mold off mine with. It is in bad shape so it will be trashed. Making mine the only one.

Re: Texas Jet Boat Fiberglass Repair (it runs) update

Holidays have been long. I finally got the boat on the water. I had issues at first. One was the fact that I didn't open the valve coming off the pump for my cooling water so it over heated and blew a hose. Once I got that fixed and water added to it it runs good and doesn't get hot. The water temp ...

Re: Texas Jet Boat Fiberglass Repair

Small update. I got the closed loop cooling system finished, I cleaned up and reused my uncles brass piping and clear coated it. Kinda looks patina, but not many will see it. Got it all plumbed up and the reservoir mounted with overflow tubing. Next I'll move on to fuel system. I have a mechanical f...

Re: Texas Jet Boat Fiberglass Repair

Been a bit again but I'm still at it. I did find a job, been hard at it for two months. Managed to get the exhaust on and front pulleys. It's slowly getting there. I have the heat exchanger in and will try to install it this weekend https://cimg2.ibsrv.net/gimg/www.thehulltruth.com-vbulletin/2000x15...

Re: Texas Jet Boat Fiberglass Repair

Just read it again from the beginning. Do not stop! Love this project. Is your uncle still around? Taking him for a spin would be sweet! Yes he is still around, I saw him at a recent family reunion last summer and we talked. He hit me up for a ride. I keep in touch with him when I go to Port O' Con...

I'm going to be adding pulleys and alternator, the. Start to run wiring so I can run just the engine t...
