Welcome to HDF aquaholic! :good

I went from the London Bridge to Davis Dam and back in my jet that has twin 11 gallon tanks.  I was paranoid about running out of gas, but I found several places to buy it along the way. :D I topped them off at Topock, the Avi, and in Bullhead right across from the Casinos. :)

That looks like DickDanger's old boat. :stupid  If it is, we have plenty of pics of it on this site. :good

Hey there, everyone!!! Great to see my boat being enjoyed by new owners.

I will give ya the short version of why I sold it...

When I moved to Idaho, I took it out after putting the manifold back on (it had been powdercoated), as well as my carb (TPC had rebuilt and powdercoated it for me, that was a prototype carb BTW) and the manifold hadnt been torqued to specs, so water got into the cylinders, and bent a rod.

After fixing that, one of the cam lobes had been rounded off, so my Dad and I decided to rebuild it from the bare block up, which was a shame, as the motor was tight (as the people on here that rode in it with me could tell..lol) but that was the plan.

Tore it down, had the heads checked, the block cleaned and inspected, new Comp Cam, new rockers, all new rings, brand new Bassett twist headers (I had decided to get rid of the old style headers I had, and get new ones...lol).

All in all, it took me about $1200 to do a full rebuild. We ran it for 30 minutes to break everything in, and then drained the oil to get all of the lubes, grease, etc. out of there.

I then took it to a lake here in Idaho, and once I started the new motor, I had no oil pressure. I figured that the sending unit had gone bad when it was being rebuilt, and didnt even think to look back at the engine well. By the time I did, and saw oil pouring out of the filter, it was too late. What had happened was when we changed the oil and filter, a piece of gasket had stuck up in there, and upon installing the new filter, it wasnt seated right. So now the engine was toast again.

I then purchased a brand new engine from Superior Engines in Oregon. I had to make a few modifications to get it operable (the flywheel didnt match, I now had to get an electric fuel pump, as the new block wasnt set up for a mechanical one, etc.)

Well, I could never get the new motor running right. I messed with the timing, the carb, upgraded the fuel pump twice, and it would always choke out around 3000 rpm. I was just totally frustrated and bummed that my pride and joy wasnt working worth a $hiat anymore. It seemed that if I fixed one thing, two things would go wrong. This went on for well over a year.

I now think that the problem was that the 2 fuel tanks were top draw, and mechanical fuel pumps can easily draw the gas out no problem. Electric fuel pumps are better at pushing fuel, and not pulling it, so what I should have done was yanked the tanks, had the fittings re-welded to the bottom of the tanks, and they probably would have worked fine.

In the end, if I had the chance to do it over again, I would have spent the money to have Nelson Racing build me a 600 hp single carb set-up with no NOS of supercharger (fuel tanks were just too small). While it was in Idaho, I had yanked all of the carpet out, inspected the stringers, and recarpeted it, as well as having the pump blueprinted to a Stage II.

It was really a sad day when I sold that boat to a couple in Bend, Oregon, but I was honest and told him the problems that I had been having. I got WAY more for the boat than I should have!!!

Anyhow, I sure do miss the good times we all had, and if anyone ever knows of a classic jet or v-drive for sale that is on par with my "Aquaholic" let me know!!!!

By the way, yes, the paint is all original and I washed and waxed it everytime it came out of the water. I think the people that know me on here know how anal I was with that boat....lmao.

Anyhow, take care everyone!!! -DD

Thanks for the info on the Aquaholic. Your care for this boat shows. Everyone I meet is surprised at how the original finish in such good condition. The engine troubles you experienced were real heartbreakers. I would have let her go at that point aswell. The guy you sold it to in Oregon took the Aquaholic to a high performance boat shop and they replaced the carb with an "Edlebroke" (which actually performs well) after hours and hours of dyno time. (Sorry Vic I am a Holley guy).
The boat works really well, I have GPS @ 70 with a FULL load.
I had to put a new "Blue (fuel) Pump",the jet is starting to take on water, and both fuel line pickup tubes shrunk and fell of inside the tank. But its all good!
There are few little things I have questions about I will email you for the answers.
Thank you again for you stories, the boat is a special one.

Glad to hear that you are enjoying it!!!

The original carb was a prototype Holley (I believe) that was never put into production.

The pump is probably leaking at the rear seal where the driveline goes into the pump. I had noticed that as well before I sold it in 2005.

D&S did all of the upholstery for me in 2003. They also do Ultra's, Chapparall's, etc. upholstery...or at least they did.

The holes on the right side of the boat, right by the seat, was when I accidentally drilled too deep trying to install that stupid cable for the amp. Putting a stereo in that boat was one of the worst mistakes I ever made. I never should have done it.

If you have looked behind the front cover (the one where the speakers are) you will find several floatation devices in there. Theoretically, they are supposed to keep the hull afloat in the event of the boat sinking.

Before I sold it, I was seriously considering getting the hull re-cleared, as it was getting a little thin on the sides.

The stringers were in excellent shape before I covered them. I inspected them, and there was absolutely NO sponginess anywhere.

If you are still running the velocity stack on the carb, I picked that up on EBay for like $5. It was rusted and bent, and I took it in to a chrome shop had them straighten it, and chrome it.

Do you know why the guy in Oregon sold it? Like I said earlier, I detailed the problems that I was having with it when I sold it to him.

Anyhow, take care.

Hey, that toilet looks familiar!!! LOL. I sure do miss the good times we had out on Perris, Havasu, the Colorado, etc. I cant believe that it has been that long since the party, but you are right, Dougie: it has been a long time.

I tell ya, it was a real heartbreaker when I sold it, but after a year and a half of nothing but engine troubles, I reached my breaking point. That's saying something, cos I dont give up on things easily!!!

All I can think of is if I had never taken the manifold off to spruce it up, none of that crap would have ever happened. It started a chain reaction that I could never overcome.  :banghead

Anyhow, hope you all of you are still doing well, still partying it up (remember: we won the "hardest partiers" award at OP6 III!!!!

Take care, Doug!!!

The stringers were in excellent shape before I covered them. I inspected them, and there was absolutely NO sponginess anywhere.

If you are still running the velocity stack on the carb, I picked that up on EBay for like $5. It was rusted and bent, and I took it in to a chrome shop had them straighten it, and chrome it.

Do you know why the guy in Oregon sold it? Like I said earlier, I detailed the problems that I was having with it when I sold it to him.

Anyhow, take care.

The guy you sold it to Was in love with the boat but after taking his family out on the water a few times his family decided HE needed a wakeboarding boat with a tower and all. He was pretty bummed that he couldnt keep it. The boat belonged back in so cal where it came from anyhow. I couldnt get the neon Oregon registration off of that hull quick enough. I called an old school sign painter and had the California reg brush painted on to match the boat.
I am running the velocity stack! I tried to run the old spark arresting air cleaner but the motor started loading up right away. I called the guy in Oregon and he said the carb was tuned with the velocity stack and that it was the way to go . I feel bad that you didnt get to enjoy the boat with that new motor in it. It sounds so tame at idle but that motor in conjunction with the bad ass GS marine pump that you put in the thing really surprises people.
