    Pump is in, OP nozzle is installed, and steering is aligned (water test will confirm when it's not 20 degrees out ).

    The OP nozzle that was donated was used and had the typical pivot hole egging they are known for - especially bad on the bottom. I didn't take pictures of all the details, but I basically installed (epoxied in) new stainless sleeves into the pivot holes of the nozzle and then carefully made fitted bushings top and bottom. No more stainless bushing against the bare cast aluminum nozzle. I've repaired several like this, and they have all held up well.

    Oh yeah, the stainless swirl prop was in this SJ when I bought it. Condition and clearance is all very good, so I didn't mess with it. Not sure what the pitch is, but if spring test rides reveal the pitch isn't appropriate, I will deal with it then.

    Now I just need to decide what I'm doing ride plate and intake grate wise.

    Re: BJP Prize Ski Build - Holy Grail Squarenose - Jet Blast 2020 Wisconsin Dells Free

    Little more progress. This SN still had the original plastic OEM intake grate when I bought it. I normally prefer the R&D pro-series intake grate (after trying at least one of everything since the 90s), but I'm not a fan of attaching any kind of really aggressive scoop grate to an old original plastic pump shoe, because you're basically creating a ticking time bomb = that shoe is gonna snap, and you might lose an expensive grate.

    So instead I like to take these old cast aluminum grates from VXR650s and cut out the 2 center bars and blend everything nicely. Then I also make a 2mm thick shim for the rear mounting point. It's a good balance of improved hook up without stressing the pump shoe too much.

    Thanks for the offer & baseless implication , but now that I've already taken the time to mod and make a shim for this one, I'm just going to leave it on the ski.

    Ride plate installed. This SN came to me with an OEM plate, but I really wanted at least something a bit longer. Fellow BJP Keith S donated this Tucker Rocky plate at the jet ski rummage sale we held back in October. It's got the rear screw adjusters just like a stock plate. One was stuck, but I freed it with heat and persuasion, then removed and greased both of them in case the new owner wants to drop the rear of the plate. Also note that the mounting holes for the early version offline bilge have been nicely filled in. Don't need them when running the later version reduction nozzle with incorporated bilge.

    If anyone is looking for a stock SN ride plate, hit me up, as I will probably sell the stocker from this ski. It was damn near perfect. Great candidate to d-cut.

    Is this Jet Blast or the Wisconsin Dells Freeride?

    Is the Freeride a different weekend than Jet Blast?
