My Custom 76 Orrion Jet Boat




I recently came across your Web Site while reading a copy of Jet Boat Performance online magazine. I was happy to see that I was not alone when it came to the love and restoration of older Jet Boats. After reading through some captions and seeing pictures of other reader’s projects I was inspired to send of few Pics of my own. I recently restored a 76 Orrion that I purchased about 3 years ago. It has been converted from an Olds 455 to a Chevy 454. Other additions/changes include new paint to match my 92 Wrangler, custom interior w/buckets, new Hardin Marine gauges, new fuel cells, new steering wheel.....well, you get the picture. Anyhow I was hoping that others could enjoy seeing what I have done to my boat and be inspired the way that I was while looking over you online magazine. Thanks for your time and I look forward to seeing more restored jet boats on the water.
