    RE: Gas Jet Boaters

    My mistake, the Swashdrive must be 32".

    RE: Gas Jet Boaters

    So if i do end up getting a hull (or two) this week i will be looking at builing me another one up very soon.
    What do you guys recommend for an engine. I went from a weedeater (years ago) to a stock Zenoah 260 to the stock RCMK S254 seen above. the two options im thinking of at the moment are a RCMK K30 or the Zenoah 290 for the extra midrange torque, which would be the better motor to go for?

    cheers

    RE: Gas Jet Boaters

    Tried this in the main Gas Boat Forum but no response, so I will try it here.

    I have an idea that I have drawn up with Solidworks and would like you guys opinion.

    I have a plan for a 50cc Twin driving 2 Jet Pumps piped into 1 outlet and nozzle.

    Do any of you have any ideas about what I have planned or do you see problems with my design?

    RE: Gas Jet Boaters

    Going from a singe engine, through a gearbox to twin pumps and back to a single outlet has four main issues I can see.

    1 - loss of energy through gearbox and twin pumps
    2 - flow problems where 2 pumps join into one nozzle (complicated stator required)
    3 - you want the uptake as far back on the hull as possible, so you will have lots hanging out the rear
    4 - when the hull leans over in turns you will likely suck air in one of the uptakes & cavitate/airate the system

    Cheers

    Thank you for your response. Those are the things I was looking at but I don't have alot of experience with a squirt boat.

    RE: Gas Jet Boaters

    With jets you want torque more than rpm from your power source. I'd stick with a single engine to a single pump. When you design your impeller make sure the blades overlap so you get the best prime possible. The Jettec pump (re named swashdrive) is the only model jetpump currently on the market with overlapping blades. Not one of the Graupner, MH$ and Hobbyking pumps have overlapping blades and all, from my experience, suffer badly with cavitation and pump priming.

    RE: Gas Jet Boaters

    Hi All,
    Picked up a couple of new huls on Saterday, Started on one, will keep the other for a while before I start on it.
    My latest boat, will be powered with a RCMK K30S, Jettec jet unit. Got the paint and carry handle/roll cage done. Should be finished in a couple of weeks.

    Cheers

    RE: Gas Jet Boaters

    well got my sprint boat wet last night.
    running 1/2 to 3/4 throttle most of the time though. I need to make my roll cage to add weight forward a bit and a spoiler to reduce swamping it when it spins out.
    i am reasonably happy with it so far,nothing a bit of tweeking and tuning wont fix

    heres a couple of vids

    Steve,
    looks great on the water, a bit tail heavy, may be able to move the fuel bladder foward.

    RE: Gas Jet Boaters

    it is a swashdrive jet sprint hull.
    the gasket is made with a piece of rubber bike tube. it has a smaller hole cut in the middle to create a compression fit around the jet unit and the a flange fits over and bolts to the transom.

    No it's not a Davette, it is made by a bloke out here, the seal is from a truck inertube, thicker than a bike tube. Will take photos of the next one that is on the go now.
