    For the record - a superjet in an ambulance cant be good, haha.
    That was a unique pickup.

    Never argue with an idiot, they will drag you down to their level then beat you with experience.

    Re: Project Outcast

    This is going to be a sweet build for sure. Ambulance pick up is pretty funny.

    I still am pretty surprised how different the SN and RN feel. The 96 RN in our group is stable and steers flat, and is very very nimble. Tight turning radius with an aftermarket steering plate. The SN takes work keeping flat. Moving the steering pivot out on the oem plate does tighten the turn radius well, but the ski is still pretty easy to lean. I wonder if the top deck being heavier on the SN than RN is what contributes to this, as others have said.

    I'll be watching this one Mike! This is a cool conversion.

    Hey Vetteman-The donor hull came with a turn plate. And eventually the hull will be shortened and rocketed, but I want to ride it in its stock form first. Then do the mod

    Re: Project Outcast

    Spent 4 hours today sanding and precutting the bottom tunnel. had a bright sunny day outside to make sure the lines where right. Also drilled some holes in the SMC of the tunnel so I can use compressed air to help separate the SMC from the fiberglass. The engine compartment is now ready for paint (appliance epoxy). And glassing continues on the tunnel.

    Re: Project Outcast

    Thanks Riverrat, lots of work to do yet. Sorting out where and hows of driveline install and noted that the seadoo, through hull attaches to the seadoo hull via a 40mm tube. which coincidentally is the same OD as a schedule 40 1 1/4 pvc. So I may have the option of just getting a longer driveshaft. But I will search for a totally OTS parts combo that will work. Painting engine compartment today and as always more glass.

    Well, was supposed to go jet ski today but someone took my hitch adapter/reducer. None of the stores had any, so started sanding the topside down. Three hours later topside ready for paint, but didn't stop. Just finished painting the top, one small run. Damn didn't plan that.

    That motors works really good in those SJ hulls. A buddy of mine in NC dropped one in an 08 SJ hull and it was a blast to ride. One of the best handling SJs I have ever ridden with really good power on pump gas.

    Sweet project!

    That's good to hear. Initially I will be running pump gas if I can use the stock pipe. If I use the Coffman I will have to watch for deto and will probably just switch the domes and run 100 octane. What was your buddy using for his pipe. Also did he do a build thread. I know that several superjets are running 951's but there is very little info out there on those builds.
