I own a 1995 Sea Doo Speedster jet boat, With two rotax 657cc engines, I thought I had enough power to do anything I wanted. But when I attempted to pull a good slalom skier out of the water, we came up short. My jet boat will do 57mph. But it it seems to be a little slow coming out of the hole. What can I do to boost the power on the bottom end and still keep what I have on top? Keep in mind I have two engines to deal with for twice the cost.
You can boost the performance of your speedster jet boat with a few basic modifications that won't break the bank. Have the heads milled .030". Replace your stock flame arrestors with aftermarket air filters and the chokes with primer kits. These mods will help give your jet boat the acceleration you are looking for without sacrificing top-end performance.
If you want to go one step further, install aftermarket impellers.

HomeStreet Bank San Diego Bayfair on Mission Bay, September 13-15, Features Family Fun with Hydro-Flight Games, BBQ Championship and World’s Fastest Boats
HomeStreet Bank San Diego Bayfair presented by Davies Electric has something for the whole family when the event takes over Mission Bay, September 13-15. Whether the kids want to see the extreme Hydro-Flight Games or the parents are interested in barbecue and fast boats, Bayfair has you covered.
Over 70,000 spectators and RVers are expected to be part of the end-of-summer tradition as the family-friendly festival takes over East Vacation Island, Crown Point and Fiesta Island. Celebrating its 55th year, HomeStreet Bank San Diego Bayfair is one of California’s largest on-water events.
“HomeStreet Bank San Diego Bayfair continues to grow by offering more activities on land and on Mission Bay,” said Bob Davies, race director for HomeStreet Bank San Diego Bayfair. “From the new Hydro-Flight games and America’s Finest BBQ competition to the fastest boats on the water, we’ve got a memorable weekend ahead of us.”
The newest addition to Bayfair is the Hydro-Flight Games, set for Friday-Sunday on Crown Point. More than 45 competitors from around the world will participate in the exhibition. It features Jetboard competitions, JetBike, JetPacks and a junior competition doing incredible tricks. Hydroflight competitions are popular overseas but there are few events in North America.
“This is a unique opportunity to see these world-class competitors right in your backyard,” Davies said. “They are incredible athletes who will put on a great show for the fans.”
Returning for the second year is the popular America’s Finest BBQ State Championship on Saturday, September 14. The competition will feature more than 50 teams firing up barbecues for the best pork, beef brisket, chicken and pulled pork. The championship event is sanctioned by the Kansas City BBQ Society.
Attendees can purchase food tokens to sample the food and learn from the best in the business on how to barbecue. Tickets to America’s Finest BBQ State Championship are $10; free for Bayfair fans with a 3-day Super Pass. The barbecue competition will have a beer garden and music with proceeds benefitting the San Diego Police Historical Association.
On-water activities are led by the H1 Unlimited hydroplanes, which is wrapping up its 2019 season in Mission Bay. Driver Andrew Tate is defending back-to-back Bill Muncey Cup victories in San Diego but expect Miss HomeStreet Bank driver Jimmy Shane to have a say before the weekend is over. Shane of Maple Valley, Washington, is expected to lock up the individual driver and team points championship in San Diego.
Fans who love big piston-power will want to catch the Grand Prix World Supercharged Hydroplanes as they’ll race throughout the weekend. This year the eight teams will be racing for the Secretary of the Navy Cup. The cup, which is on loan from the American Power Boat Association, was last contested in 1931.
“San Diego has such a proud military tradition, we wanted to honor the servicemen and servicewomen,” said Sam Cole, chairman of the Grand Prix World Supercharged Hydroplanes. “The fact the Secretary of the Navy Cup hasn’t been contested for nearly 90 years should be exciting for fans and the racers.”
Bayfair supports the military too by providing free admission to active military and reservists with current identification. Dependents receive 50 percent off their ticket and children under 12 are free.
Rounding out the on-water entertainment are several classes of amateur racing from the American Power Boat Association. The classes expected to participate include 1 Liters, Crackerbox, Stock Hydros, SST and Seabreachers.
Other activities at Bayfair include beer gardens, a large vendor area open to the public on East Vacation Island and activities for the kids. San Diego Bayfair also offers RV spaces to rent on Mission Bay, one of the few opportunities to stay overnight in Mission Bay Park. RV Packages include four nights and five days, plus tickets to the event.
Testing and qualifying with limited racing is on Friday, September 13. Heat races and championship races are on Saturday and Sunday. The Bill Muncey Cup for H1 Unlimited is Sunday afternoon, September 15.
“San Diego is one of the favorite destinations for boat-racing fans across the country,” Davies said. “We see families that attended as a child and are now bring their children and grandchildren to Bayfair. It speaks to how family oriented Bayfair is.”
Single-day tickets start at $25 and a three-day Super Pass is available for $45. Children under age 12 are free. For more information or to purchase advance tickets online, visit www.sandiegobayfair.org.

“They'll have to go some to beat last year,” remarked Lake Havasu Boat Show organizer, Bob Brown. “Our 2018 Lake Havasu Boat Show was a record setter, largest in our history with over 140 exhibitors and more than 9,000 attending visitors. We’ve set the bar really high, but we’re looking forward to an even better show this year, April 5-7, 2019 at Lake Havasu State Park, Windsor 4.
Unlike conventional boat shows which occupy indoor land-locked venues, the Lake Havasu Boat Show, co-sponsored by Jet Renu and Mohave State Bank, is all outdoors and on-the-water. The Windsor 4 area borders the famous London Bridge Channel and the northern basin of Lake Havasu, and that immediate water access will again be put to good use.
“Windsor 4 has a first-class seven-lane launch ramp, courtesy docks and two large white-sand beaches,” said Brown. “There will be a variety of demo boat models at the courtesy docks including pontoons, wakesport boats, JetBoats and family sportboats. For those interested in checking out and test riding on some the newest jet boats, personal watercraft, kayaks and stand-up paddleboards, that activity will be happening from the main beach. There’s no boat show in the country that offers more boater interaction with product for consumers.”
Something else Jet boaters will find appealing is the ability to ‘boat-to-the-boat-show’ with their own boat. There’s a finely manicured 600-foot long white-sand beach directly adjacent to the boat show London Bridge Channel’s northern shore. Boaters can pull their boats up on the beach for no charge and walk directly into the boat show. Normal Jet Boat boat show admission prices do prevail.
“We expect between 250 to 300 new boats to be on display at the boat show,” commented Brown, “including a lot of the latest 2019 models. And if you’re into high performance and exotic marine equipment, no place in the western United States will have as many custom boat manufacturers present plus Mercury Racing with their full complement of engine and propulsion models.”
The 28th Annual Lake Havasu Boat Show, presented in conjunction with the Lake Havasu Marine Association, opens to the public on Friday, April 5 at noon. Saturday and Sunday, gates open at 9am. Admission is $8.00 for adults and kids six and under are free, and parking is also free. The Lake Havasu State Park, Windsor 4 is located at 171 London Bridge Road, next to the Hampton Inn. Exhibitors interested in participating at the boat show should call 951-501-0210 or email email@example.com. More information is available on the website at www.lakehavasuboatshow.com
