    Anyone ever see this for the 40-60inch boats? Here are a couple of photos of a new jet system for the vee hulls

    Any links to websites that sell these in the USA???

    RE: Jet drive for Gas boats

    you mean these http://www.swashdrive.com.au/

    The series II Hydrojet mouldings are made using the Highest engineered glass filled Composite (Zytel ) for rigidity and stability. The mouldings are then finished machined on our in-house CNC machining centre. All castings are investment cast 316 Stainless steel and finished machined in-house. All bearings, shaft & seal are also Stainless Steel. This jet has the ability to run in heavy salt and muddy waters without any corrosion.

    Final assembly of the series II Hydrojet is done by hand and tested in our in-house Tub-tester to ensure the end user is receiving the highest possible quality product.

    SUPPLY
    The Series II Hydrojet comes fully assembled with an impeller of your choice !

    Export $500.00 + Freight

    Australia $550.00 incl GST + Freight

    I'm getting ready to get a nice jet system thats bigger from Germany for $300 plus ship

    RE: Jet drive for Gas boats

    I have had an MHZ jet for a few years. Works well though not as solid as the Swashdrive unit. I just carried back two Swashdrive boats from Australia for a few buddies in Mass. http://p086.ezboard.com/fjimsrcboatdockfrm2.showMessage?topicID=5271.topic Craig (Swashdrive) did an exceptional job building them and I cant imagine a better guy to deal with.

    Problem with the jet drive is that you cant just throw one in any old Vee hull. They really prefer shallow vees and a shorter hull. You also loose some top end performance. The Swashdrive hull was custom made for the pump and having seen them in action I think the work was well worth it !!

    Not sure about that. It is a pic of my buddy Corbins Jet. I copied it over from his post on JRCBD for those interested.

    Worth noting (from the pics in the originating post). The Swashdrive jet has a trimable nozzle from the third channel. I cant say there are many jet boats running with TRIM TABS !!

    Sorry but maybe my website was a little confussin on the prices, they are in $AUDollars
    When you convert it $365.00 USD Which isn't a bad price cosidering what you get.
    I'm not going to openly bag the MHZ jet nor boast how good our one is, just simply want to clarify the price, the decission is up to you !
    But you should have a look at thrust & flow ratings a bit closer

    The performance of your jetsprint speaks for itself Craig. I have had the "other" pump for a while and am stopped in my tracks every time I see yours in action. In my experienced opinion the swashdrive is a work of art in both form and function !!!
