    RE: Gas Jet Boaters

    Dana .. contact Peter Hawkins about which hull from your own stable to use , add a delta on the keel ,

    re-build one of your deck-molds to a more jet-boat-style .. and you'll have a winner.

    Only rival on the USA market is the MHZ-jetsprint .. I'm sure you can beat their pricing ,

    and i can vouch your laminating skills.

    I recomment using this deck ... making the opening more to front , and a nice wide rim for attaching a windowscreen.

    Dana W : "I was thinking 34'' in length"
    As long as you make it 13,5" (min) wide ... it should be OK for a jetboat.

    RE: Gas Jet Boaters

    excellent work on BOTH boats. I grew up having jet boats and it is something you'll always have a craving for once you own one!! what kind of speeds are these puppies gettin with a stock 26? You loose a lot of speed with a real jet pump over a prop...less efficiant. just wondering...

    what about a catamaran with a center pod for the pump?? I used to own one that was 19' with a BBC. I'd like to find something like that
    anyone make a hull like that?


    here's a pic of DOCKMAN's boat!!

    RE: Gas Jet Boaters

    Dana,

    Looks as if that is a Plug for building a mold ?

    If you produce them, would be VERY interested in one for my Swashdrive pump

    RE: Gas Jet Boaters

    Hi guys

    I am also building a plug for molding a sprint hull. just wish i could work as fast as what Dana is.

    just noticed the shot of the rear of the hull still has a v keel. you prob know this but the pump will require a flat delta keel.

    cheers

    RE: Gas Jet Boaters

    Thanks for sharing . Nice job . Yes I realize the pump requires a delta keel for the intake but I thought I'd make the V hull first then shave the back for the delta keel . Then add the strakes . Thanks for your input though .

    Yes Scott this is only the plug . Hope to be molding very soon .
