The ballast has its own through hull with a shut off in front of the back seat.For now it just has three switches in the dash.

Have you thought of a name for the boat yet?
Maybe "Blue by you"

I'm going to plumb mine in next year. You did a single thru-hull? What are you doing for pumps?

Chris,The staples where steel and the skins where covered in rust.

Andy,I used a single one inch through hull ans six simmer pumps.I prefer them because you can't run them dry and they look cool shooting out the side of the boat

Ryan,I have kept boa constrictors for over a decade and still havn't named a single one.I just never really named things.
My freinds call the correct craft pretty girl so I guess thats her name.

No seriously the first of three upholsters cut them apart for templates and they had massive rust stains that had eaten the staple surfaces.I still have some of the rear peices and the engine cover but thats about it.

Andy,theres three pumps to fill and three to evacuate out the side.There not loud at all and easy to service.

You're using Simer's right? Why not just reverse them?

Simers are not rated for engine compartments so be careful where you mount them. I used Jabsco Ballast Puppies but Johnsons will do the job safely as well at a lower price.

Well I happen to be working in Oklahoma for the last few weeks on a well just outside Altus, Oklahoma. Ran into town to p/u a few things and just about wrecked out starring at a baby blue 2001 passing in the other direction. After a very ilegal whip around, my suspicions were confirmed! It was Ryan and his 2001 V-Drive conversion! If any of you had any doubts on how it turned out, let me tell you it looked BAD A$$! He did a great job, although he is not yet happy with the interior.

I don't think I've seen any pics of the interior yet, I've been wondering about that. Any chance of posting some Ryan? I'd also like to see what you did with the rear deck.

Im sorry guys,it was rude of me to start this thread and not post some finished pic's.Ill get some good one's this week.
As for the boat we love it very much and enjoy it several times a week.The interior turn into a nightmare and it took a few weeks to dial in the wake but she is everything you would expect from a nautique.
At about 28mph and up she has a little porpose but the payoff is a much better ruff water ride and it doesn't take water over the nose anymore.It also planes like a v-drive which doesn't bother me.
The wake is crisp and clean with a nice lip almost identical to my buddies 03 super air.
To me the high point of the conversion is all the weight in the very bottom of the hull.It literally is a different boat,much more stable and less prone to taking on water and doesn't rock side to side half as much.
So to conclude this post it is a very good conversion that I would recommend to anyone with the motivation and there is tons of room for improvement with weight placement and space conservation.

WoW!!!!!!!!!! What a beautiful boat. Not only is it one of a kind, it's a BAD ASS one of a kind! Beautiful pictures and a great close to one of the coolest transfomations I have seen on CCF. It may have been a struggle but the interior is beautiful. The bad part about doing things yourself is that you see all the flaws. Nobody else will notice but you. Hats off to you sir!

This is, in my opinion, the most radical and awesome thread I've seen. I'm in awe and wouldn't hesitate to do the same if I had the skills/cash.

And WOW, no 79? could have been back when he was on restriction...

As others have said, awesome job.

What would you do to remedy the porpoise at 28mph and up? Trim tab?
How does it surf?
What would you change if you did it again?
Would you raise the platform?
Maybe there's a market for a vdrive conversion kit? Anytakers?
What don't you like about the interior?

Well,the thing I don't like about the interior is the quality of the work.The actual layout is very roomy and to me offers better space than a wraparound.As it is six people can comfortably sit in the boat and a wraparound won't increase that number.Only benifit I see would be more under seat storage.
As for there being a market for this conversion I guess that comes down to what you call a market.The world is flooded with 24 foot monster wakeboats reaching close to a hundred grand.This style of party boat is not realistic for your average weekday rider like me and serves no real duty other than making a wake.I have owned a few and am not impressed in the least.Modern boats have bolted into the realm of popularity and lost touch with the original goal(wakeboarding).Take standard for example,that right there shows me theres a market for a boat like this and aside from the dd configuration was a great idea.In fact if he ever figures out his boats should be v drives I would assume his sales would rise considerably.So yes it is a valid idea and with a little mechanical ability plus the ccf forum I am sure it can be done again and again but theres to much fabrication with the layout to make it a sellable product.
