Came across this in the back of a hay barn about a year ago when i was looking at holden hz parts for Neal. Was smitten as shit with it as soon as i saw it. Didn't need another project but ended up getting this quite cheap Had to sell a few toys but not worried. Is 99% complete just a little run down in certain areas such as rust being that it's steel bottom alloy top. The jet units bearings were all stuffed as well so pulled unit off and threw some new bearings at it new seals. 

Currently have pulled motor out so I can flip hull and fix rust and fix all plumbing and wiring. I'm also going to build a heat exchanger at work out of an old diesel oil cooler since currently running raw through motor. 

Photos to come

I'd like a jet boat they look like fun

So it's not just me who thinks that three oh lates sound like that? 

And all the handles are different sizes and thicknesses too?

 

Lush boat though. I bet it will go hunnitz.
