Default Rc jet boat

I have a 55 in v hull and want to make it a jet propelled boat. I was wondering how can I get started and where can I find parts?

Do you mean a jet boat as in jet turbine, or as in water jet?

If it's water jet, have a look on the gas section in this forum and you will find a whole thread on jet boats.

Heres a few pics of some of my jets that might give you some ideas. I am not sure Swashdrive are making the pumps presently but I think MHZ are again producing a similar unit.

Craig at Swashdrive will not be making any more Swashdrive jet pumps. Last time I spoke to him he was in the process of selling all his gear to a European outfit. I've no idea how that is progressing.

The MHZ jet pump isn't currently in production but last I heard they were going to do another run this year. That leaves the Graupner or KMB pumps unless you can find one secondhand or wait for MHZ to do another run.
