    i am picking up a new boat next week that has a vicalen jet with 2 barrel 350 chev. just wondering if any one has info on them. i know the manufacturers son has some old posts on here , so hopefully he will read this. i tested the boat yesterday and was very impressed with it , planing at 2200 rpm and absolutely flying at 3500 rpm, i hadn't been in a jet boat for 25 years and i had forgotten how good they handle. reading all the complaints about jets on this site i think there must be a lot of poorly set up boats out there. this vicalen jet does seem to perform a lot better than the 3 stage colorado we had when i was a kid. anyway some info on vicalen jets would be great.
