Some might remember a post I made awhile back Question for V-8 jet owners. Well, here are the results with the help of all your responses.
It's a 19' Luxor and I did go with the 350 Chev as most suggested (carbureted}, with an AT 309 pump and HTR II nozzle. As you can see I also went with the dual axle upgrade on the trailer and put a 8hp High Thrust Yamaha on a welded kicker bracket. I finally finished outfitting the boat for fishing Sunday night, so along with a couple of coworkers we initiated her in style. Monday morning we fished below the mouth of the Cowlitz and put 5 Chinooks in the cooler. Should have been 6 but the last one broke off. Thanks to all that helped me in the decision making process.

Swwwweeeeet! Boat! Ihave the 19" Luxor 240 Sportjet w/hardtop. Same color scheme, and pull it with a 2002 Dodge 4x4 Quad cab Turbo Diesel of the same color. So, far I've lived up to my name and haven't netted one salmon yet. Just haven't had the time to get out. Great job breaking that boat in right. Keep up the good work. Hope to get some blood in mine soon!

Nice boat.

The big question...do you have too much power with that 350?

Nice boat but you got a tandem trailer of the wrong brand. :depressed: Check your bearings often so you don't become part of the two year scored spindle club. :rolleyes:

I will not comment on the tow vehicle. :wink:

WD, also driving an F-350 PSD

Where's the I-fish stickers?
