Yes, My first boat was a 18' jet boat with 460 ford and powershot nos. We had a great time in it! I still have 21 tunnel hull that is a lot better than the jet was as far as ride goes. Due to problems with my lower back it only used in inland waters. Offshore stuff requires the larger hole in the water!!! Bob

My first Hi-Powerboat was a Aqua-Craft flat bottom V-drive, it had a 389 Pontiac motor with 428 Super-Duty heads and 2 four barrell carbs, I traded a Harley Sportster for it when I was 19, I thought I was hot **** with that boat!.......Fred

My first boat was a cv19ss Glastron Carlson. with a 455 Olds and a Birkley jet. We had a lot of fun with that thing. We loved to play with the jetovator when we werepulling skiers or tubers.

Never had a Sanger, one of my friends did though. I had a Tahiti that I replaced the stock 455 olds with a 454 blower motor in......Also had a few Hydrostreams man that was eons ago it seems.

I startred with an18 foot wriedt stinger with a 455 olds. I drove that around for a couple of years and traded up to a brand new 1978 stinger with a 454. That boat went through constant upgrades utill I sold it 2 years ago. It is still here on the Kankakee River maintaining it`s spot on the sand bar and it`s place in Kankakee River Hot Boat History.

My first boat was a 15 foot hydrostream with a 1500xs Tower of Power I hope to maybe buy that boat back. The new owner blew up the engine and is to stupid to get the new one going again
