    I had a Marlin jet boat for a few years. I'll see if I have pictures someplace. Gone through several computers since I sold it fall of 08. It was a great small lake, river boat. I did a mild cam, on a 350 Chevy motor. Figured a small block offered weight savings and was better on gas. Did a whopping 58mph with two 200lb adults and a half tank of fuel. It wasn't much slower then some of the big block people with the same hull. My dream boat, wanted since childhood was a Donzi Classic, so I upgraded. I'm now thinking of getting another jet. Thinking Bahner with a big block. So whatcha got?

    Will do. I'm thinking of buying a cottage on a local to me lake. Its a very small lake. A Donzi 22 Classic is too big for the lake. Since the lake is mostly calm, its perfect for a jet boat.

    Donzi jets are cool. But I really like the old school 70's and early 80's style.

    I have two jet boats. A 1999 19' CP with a blower motor and a 1979 19' Baja with a 496 CI motor.

    The CP is really cool. A guy up here near me has splashes of that hull for sale. Thought about getting one from him, but I think he went out of business.

    Thanks. The Baja is me, the CP is my darker side. :)

    Where do you store them all? We would be interested in following a project rebuild if you can shoot an IPhone or Galaxy?

    I've noticed a lot of the jet boat guys really go in for jets. Once a jet guy, always a jet guy.
