Any Jet boat owners around Vero, Ft. Pierce, Port St. Lucie?
I bought an 07 C180 about 10 days ago. It meant my "first boat" criteria:
1) I can tow it with my Honda Odyssey.
2) I can park it in my garage
3) No propellers (3 and 5 year old kids)
4) I really wanted the speedster 215, but the c180 will enable me to comfortably enjoy the water with my wife, two small kids and the grandparents, cousins, or other couples.
5) Even new, it is really inexpensive.
Only problem - no dealer anywhere close. No dealer that I know I can trust (suggestions please). I have a garage full of tools and I have little fear of using them, but I have never made a habit of DIY projects on warranty-covered vehicles. Considering that I don't really want to be without the boat for any length of time (should the ceramics fail) for a $90 set of washers, I am looking for either a suggestion from a local on a reputable dealer, or guidance from someone that has done the swap themselves (successfully ).
I read the PDF from Riva. I personally need more detailed pictures before I would be confident in breaking that baby open.
Anyway, I would appreciate any feedback you guys can offer.

only 3 bolts holding it in (check the instructions for locations) and you have to push the waterbox back some which the instructions detail, luckily for you the whole operations is much easier on the boat, especially if your not a big guy and can get into the engine bay like me.
