Any advice for the new guy

Tue, 06/28/2016 - 20:45
Hello all. I'm looking in to getting 23'-30'? boat. Looking for something maybe a fixer upper, bbc 1or 2?

Any pro or cons on length?
Pros or cons on 1vs 2 bbc?
What boats to stay away from? Brand? Out drive?
What to look for to have a smooth ride? What to look for in an older boat that it needs to have?

Obviously new to this deal but I'm all about performance, speed, and ride. Will be using mostly at lake eufaula in ok. Looking to spend less than $20,000 to purchase but Don't mind elbow grease and have lots of parts laying around.

Thanks for any pointers

Overheated engine

Tue, 06/28/2016 - 16:32
Finally got my Rogers on the water this past weekend. Everything was looking good at first, then she started overheating. Ended up pegging the temp gauge. Limped back to the dock & shut down the engine. Everything was hot including the logs & risers, & could hear the water boiling or creating steam in the block & exhaust.
Even though I have logs & risers, I thought I would be clever & install a pressure relief valve. During the run the valve was leaking & I am pretty sure I had it adjusted to too low of a pressure. After getting it back on the trailer & thinking about it I am pretty sure the pressure relief valve was bleeding off enough pressure that the engine wasn't getting enough water from the pump. Check the dipstick & didn't see any water in the oil.
The question I have is: Is it possible that I have fried or compromised the engine by running it that hot? Any suggestions on what to do next to determine if I caused any damage?

454 BBC, mild flat tappet cam, rectangular port heads, compression ratio unknown, probably around 10.5:1

Thanks in advance for any advice or suggestions.

2016 ARP Long Beach Sprint Nationals Presented by Nick Rose Insurance - Aug. 6 & 7

Tue, 06/28/2016 - 10:32
The Southern California Speedboat Club is proud to announce

The 2016 ARP Long Beach Sprint Nationals
Presented by
Nick Rose Insurance

Augsust 6 & 7, 2016 Long Beach Marine Stadium
Redondo Beach, California – June, 2016

Since the late ‘40’s, the Southern California Speedboat Club (SCSC) has been conducting races at the “birthplace” of powerboat racing on the West Coast, Long Beach Marine Stadium. Once a year, in August, the Southern California Speedboat Club stages the annual ARP Long Beach Sprint National Championships for sprint boat racing featuring 12 classes of the fastest Flatbottom, V-Bottom, Tunnel & Jet Boats from around the nation competing for bragging rights, titles and their share of prize money.

The ARP Long Beach Sprint Nationals is presented by Nick Rose Insurance & Ecology Auto Parts, Ahern Rentals, Sea-Tow, Amsoil, Hotboat.com, Hot Rods & Hobbies, & Rex Marine. The real beneficiaries however, are the thousands of spectators who turn out to experience the best high powered boat racing in the world.

There will be twelve separate classes of boats competing, from the nimble SST-45 Tunnel boats with their fully enclosed capsules and outboard motors led by defending Long Beach Sprint Nationals Champion Jason Williams, #10 from Alta Loma, CA to the 140+ mph water pounding K Racing Runabouts (K Boats) led by 2015 champion #24 “Back to the Future” Racing entry of Steve Sequieria Irvine, CA These blown alcohol flatbottoms are guaranteed to have the entire crowd at the waters edge to marvel at their awesome power and speed .
Just as old as the Southern California Speedboat Club, the Crackerbox class with their unique configuration of flatbottom boat with a driver and rider sitting behind the 314 cubic inch V8’s makes this class the perennial crowd favorite as they thrash their 15.5 foot length hulls around the course racing rail to rail with everyone holding on for dear life. The Unblown Flat class aka a combined Super Stock & Pro Stock Flatbottom class, capable of reaching speeds over 120 mph down the straights will see some tremendous competition with a group of seasoned veterans take on some great up and comers like Greg Duff, #1, driving for John Grijalva, San Clemente, CA and Tyler Roth #96 Dickinson, ND driving for Sid Rennel's.

This years National Championships titles will be in all classes. The always favorite Grand Nationals will see 2015 defending National Champion Andrew Barker #227 driving "Shakedown" will see if lightning can strike twice against a great field including owner/driver Heath Hiebert, Bellflower CA driving the #369 "Corn Fed" and “The Body Snatcher” #24 owned by Ted Kolby, Marina Del Rey, CA and driven by Joey Cucci, Lake Havasu City, AZ. From the first drop of the green flag to the checkered the GN’s are sure to keep the crowd on their feet. Comp Jets will be scheduled to race for their National Championships led by the "legend" Harold Bruce, Lake Havasu, AZ driving for Terry Valore & the Yunker Family in the CJ 169 as well as the the Sportsman Extreme (SE) Runabouts which showcases limited Cubic Inch (350) spec flatbottoms. Two time Sportsman Extreme Long Beach Sprint Nationals and National Champion Charlie Hamill, #81 Halladay, UT driving "Peep's Pride" will defend against the likes of two legends of the sport - Duff Daily and Gordon Jennings. The Classic Outboard Runabouts and limited stock hydroplanes will also be on hand to showcase their classes and race for a national championship.

Once again in 2016 the ARP Long Beach Sprint Nationals will have race teams from all over the country descending on Marine Stadium. The 100 plus boat team armada is set to wow the Long Beach crowds.

There will also be a vendor midway that will feature everything from souvenirs to food and beverage booths as well as a beer garden and don’t miss the classic V-drive display where meticulously restored V-drives from the yesteryear of racing will be parked for all to enjoy. Bring your family and friends and share the legacy that is Southern California Speedboat Club Sprint Boat racing at Marine Stadium.

Gates open at 8:00 a.m. racing starts at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday. Tickets are $20.00 per adult, $10/child (under 5 are free). Military with active I.D. are also free!

[Question] 17' 3" Hurricane steering pull

Tue, 06/28/2016 - 09:26
Hello; I just finished building a wood Bob Warren's Hurricane. When holding the steering wheel there is hardly any feel of a pull to the right, but when you let go of the wheel the boat wants to make a hard right. I have a large aluminum fin pointed straight ahead, left hand 3 blade prop, smaller sprocket on the steering shaft. Shall I put a dampener on the cable? Trim tab on the rudder? Velcro gloves?
Otherwise this boat handles like a dream and slips through the water with no effort.

Thanks Ray

Thank you - Performance Marine

Henry and Karen really helped me out. I am trying to finish up the restoration on my 1971 Arena Craft. My family and I have rented a home in Tahoe for two weeks in mid July and like all projects I was running behind. I needed the boat to be wired and started. I started calling local boats shops in May and they all laughed. I called Henry and he laughed but said he would try his best to work the boat into his already full schedule. Sure enough, he was able to wire and start the boat. The rest is on me to finish but I think we can make it. Henry went out of his way to help me. I can't thank him enough. They are located in Oakley right under the Antioch bridge. 925-757-8285 Attached Thumbnails

I have a Gen V/VI Hydraulic roller cam with the stepped front journal. Can this cam be used in a Gen IV block? Is there a retrofit gear and chain set or can I just use a Gen V/VI chain and sprockets?

Wow, is this thing working????
