This is a 70's Sangar that I did work on for a customer. It came just as a hull and trailer. We installed the motor (650hp) approx. Solid and reliable. We also did all the rigging, V-drive, manufacture parts and some custom painting with touch-ups. Pretty much built it from scratch. It has the original paint job from the 70's. Very cool! I have run this rocket and it is insane! It gets to around 100mph in like 5 seconds. WOW It's fun.

Some more pics of the Pickle fork! This thing looks awesome.
The shot of the Battery box was during fabrication, hence the shavings. Do you guys want to see some running shots?

Geo that is one wild ride. i have a friend that runs jet drag boats and we ran against one of those. we were doing 109 when he pulled buy us, radar on a friends boat showed him at 117 . it was a Hemi powered V-drive. i think he called it a sanger ski hydro and it looked exactly like that.

This one we found out was an old circle racer. It has racing history we believe. It has skeggs on the bottom for better turning. You can mash the throttle in a turn and it takes it! It is one hell of a ride! If you mash the foot throttle from a stop, it jumps out of the water. If you roll into the throttle you almost get thrown out. HANG ON! Here is another pic of me at the wheel and the owner ridding shot gun! I'm scratching my head because I couldn't believe what I just experienced! The other is around 85mph!

My clients has a shaft drive with a Casale, obviously. It's crazy fun! Do you have any running shots of the rooster tail from the Jet Drive?
