5/27/08 Tom,
It worked out great. No porposing what so ever, and I get a much higher 
roost!:D I couldn't be happier. I am definately going to keep you in mind 
when i tear apart the pump. Thanks again for the great service.


4/09 Tom, thank you so much. The cable is on the boat with 48 hrs to spare and the shipping was cheaper than you thought. This is my 2nd purchase with you. You will be my first call on my next need, and Im going this weekend, so you should hear from me Monday! (I hope not, but if so..........) Anyway, Thank you. Terry

Thanks tom! Thanks to all that responded to this thred as well.Any time I need help or have a question you guys pull throug. Thats what makes PB what it is. (Great boaters)"Junkyard"



Tom     I want to thank you and Josh again for all your help.And taking time out to try and find those motor mounts.I know in business you always hear of the problems but very rarely do you hear job well done.As I was saying this weekend I met up with some other jet boat guys and mentioned I had placed an order with you.They  have all delt with you and speak highly of your business.From now on I will consider you my only source for parts in the future.Also I will spred the word.Keep up the great work.Thanks     John Marshall

Thank You for the comfort of knowing that my naivety is in good hands and that learning more about my Jet Boat will be a great experience. We spoke about my steering cable for a 1973 Kona with a 455 Olds. You knew exactly what I needed. Cant wait to put it all together. Please send me any information that may be helpful in the future. Thank You, Michael  2/09 
 12/17/08 RE the Bowl: thanks for your rapid response, i will get back with you after the holidays, i watch these boards and am amazed by your timely service and responses, almost forgot ,to you and yours a very merry christmas. Johnny 

I wish you guys were in CO . I would take it to you.

I want this to be ready to go this summer. by the way the carb works great for the first time fire up.

 If you guys are really serious, I spent several weeks calling around and found the best deal, and by far the best service from Tom at Jet Boat Performance

Again, not only did he have the best price (delivered to me in Louisiana at my doorstep), he helped when I ran into snags.
Anyone can sell a damn part, but will they help when run into a problem - not very often.

My two cents worth.

Just a note of thanks to you and your family for all of the help with the installation of the impeller in my Dominator jet pump. It is refreshing to do business with someone that cares, and truly knows the meaning of customer service. You were able to exceed any my expectations
Just to to let you know that my boat performed as you indicated it would. The installation of the new "AA" impeller was easily completed at my home just as you said it would. Our daily phone question and answere sessions were truly professional, your patience with all of my questions was greatly appreciated.
I now know where I can get straight answeres and the best prices around.

Thanks for all the ideas and I'll be giving you guys a ring when it comes
time for the pump. Thanks for helping keep vintage jetboats in the public

-Mike Lannan

Sorry, you probably don't even remember me from 3 months ago. I actually found out that my boat is a 1976 Hawaiian! I used the MIC (Manufacturer Identification Code) database on the Coast Guard Website, using the first three letters of my HIN (Hull Identification Number). Thanks for being willing to help!

Thank you Nathan Longhurst

 Hello I have a 19' jet boat with a chev. 502 and I keep seeing these ski cleat setups that bolt to the engines. Where do I buy one of these things? Thank you. PS. thanks for your help rebuilding my pump this summer. Andrew Bailey

I just wanted to take a moment & thank you. For the parts & especially the help over the phone. This was my first pump rebuild. It turned out pretty darn good. I freshened up the 455 as well. The performance is unbelievable. I will GPS it next weekend & let you know.
We were sitting in a cove yesterday & heard someone blast by out in the main part of the lake, we cruised out just to see what it was.
There was a real nice place craft with a tunnel ram OTC headers etc. running around. We got up next to him to see how long we could hang with him. Every time he pushed harder we matched him. Ran out of lake, stopped to chat with him, he was amazed that we hung with him . His speedo was reading 70 ish just before we stopped. That is pretty screaming performance for my Taylor SS. I don't know how accurate his speedo was but will find out this weekend. Thanks for all your help!!

I have an older 1976 Challenger jet boat (see pic.) and may need to replace both of the installed 10 gallon gas tanks on each side. Do sell these either new or used? Thanks for your help.

PS – I bought a manifold ski harness from you last month and it looks great and came extremely fast.

Tom -

I am impressed with your dedication to your customers and your
willingness to always help. Not many people conduct business like you
now a days and a lot of businesses lose out because of it. You just
earned a customer for life.

Thanks Pete Schuweiler


I just received the parts you sent. I wanted to thank you for your fast and second to none customer service.
Thanks again.....


Hello Tom;

Just something funny and to show how tight nit the Jet Boat community is. The gentleman I am buying the Rewarders from knows you, and has spoken to you about doing a Panther to AT conversion, or energizer kit. He too is another satisfied customer of yours. Just thought I would let you know. Have a good day, and I hope enjoy the weekend.
