    Yes, it would probably be easier to find in the future if it were posted there.

    Will be following with interest, Haje. I would expect this build to be in the Jet Drive forum, though. I have also been watching the modeljetboats (snikwah) site too. Sdg

    Yeah, winters are getting crazier and crazier. I have a Pursuit I put a jet drive in and am antsy to take movies of it too. It will thaw (someday) hopefully!

    Me too. I should have kept one of them, I had less problems & more fun with this boat than all of the others.

    Yes, it is a safety feature. The props won't spin unless the boat is in the water. Or you lick your fingers and touch both prop shafts!

    Yes, that would be an interesting build. I see so many small replicas with prop drive it isn't funny. Great idea!

    You may be right about 'hot thing'. Jet drive boats aren't as fast, but they can be run in shallow rivers, creeks and rapids that would ruin a prop drive right away. Much more exhilarating than just...

    I would have thought there would be more interest in such a conversion. Or any conversion for that matter. But then, the Powerjet is no longer available so I suppose that may be a factor. Sdg

    Pursuit conversion

    The Powerjet was made to straddle a much thinner transom, the stator housing and pump body fitting into each other 'tongue and groove' style. But this transom is a wee bit too thick for that, so I...

    This may be some help. When making the delta that will lead the water into the hull, remove a sliver from the center so when you 'fold' them in they will make a flat section. I hope my crude pics...

    A three bladed replacement impeller would be great if you could do it with blade overlap like the one in your pump. That might reduce the tendency to aerate (some call it 'cavitation') and...

    Yes, you may need to remove or modify the strakes. On a Jet Sprint they are primarily used to reduce side-slipping (drifting) anyways, and your keel will do that. That may be the problem.

    Yes it still hops a bit, even with just a little throttle applied. It's as if it has some rocker in the hull. With the length of that pump & nozzle it should have plenty of leverage to settle it...
