What a top thread.... It's soo cool to see that you don't need to spend big $$$$ to get a good looking boat that performs. Keep the pics coming :lol:

What would be useful is for everyone to take a few pics of their wake to see which old schoolers pump a reasonable wake.

So next time you are out in your clinker etc, snap a pic off and let us know how it performs.

just a 202 mate. goes really well with the twin carbs. obviously not the fastest boat on the river but I enjoy the fuel economy it gets better. especially when it's over a dollar a litre. Do you have a V8 in your DEVIANT

also what cooling systems are people running, iam assuming most are Raw water cooled, but is any one running thermostats etc,

mine will always run between 120 - 140 F which i thought is a bit cold!
but can it be raised with only Raw water cooling?

Cheers

nevergrew, cheers mate, ive got almost the same 6, 173ci cammed single cam,

yeah fuel is great in mine too, we board for 4 hours on 15 litres!

if you got any pics of your engine id appreciate seeing them, ive changed the routing for the cooling water since i bought mine, and would be interested in where your hoses come and go?

Thanks Paul

Lloydy, My engine is set up like this

My raw water hose comes in from the hull through a garden strainer, through to the jabsco pump, into the inlet / exhaust manifold bottom side (typical 6 cylinder one) and out the topside, then into the block and head through a t - peice, then out of the head and into the exhaust pipe.

My boat runs a little cold sometimes but I have a selection of pump pulleys to choose from if it gets too bad. Changover takes 5 minutes.

fairly standard stuff. I don't run a heat exchanger as I have a few 6 cylinder's ready to go when this one dies. Plus they are very expensive I think for these old boats. Maybe a 20 - 60k boat yeh but not this one. I run the boat in salt water also.

Hope this helps. I'm at work now so I'll send some pics when I get home.

Thanks heaps for that :D

Thats exactly how ive got it now, previous owner had water coming into the block than going through the head, but it was than going into the exaust manifold than into the exaust pipe,

my way of think was it would be better to get preheated by the manifold than go into the block!

looks like ive got it pretty right,

Cheers thanks again

Great thread. The older boats are like old cars - I've got so much respect for them. All the boats posted so far look great. I'm trying to post pics of our boat but its not working so will try tomorrow.
