My next Project ......... a Mini Jet Boat
      #322711 - 23/12/18 11:24 AM

G'Day Fella's,

As shown else where on this forum, I'm shopping around on which Mini Jet Boat to build (from a Kit)?
I'm just about to place an order for one of the following Kits (3.3 Meter / 3300mm long) but not sure which brand yet;
Maybe this brand <a href="http://www.wattscraft.com" target="_blank">www.wattscraft.com</a>
But probably this (for Face Bookers) with the rear step https://www.facebook.com/liquidviolationboats/?epa=SEARCH_BOX
Here is a You Tube video of the same size LVB boat I'm looking at (3300mm long), I'm still considering which engine and jet pump to use......

Merry Christmas you mob and a BIG Thank You for all your Help, Advice, Knowledge, Experience and Humor and Best Wishes to you all, for 2019!

Finally took the plunge, Eh.
Nice little toy!
Maybe not so hot for fishing. Jon-boats or inflatables are much superior as f jet-boat fishing platforms.
I can see this as a fun little craft though. Lining the centre keel with UHMW is a good idea.

Just watched the second video and had flashbacks to some very close calls in my crotch-rocket days. Some closer than close.
400hp - YIKES

G'Day Fella's,

Yes Ripp, I agree but when you live there, the Kiwi's seem to get a bit Ho Hum, with their scenery.
Luckily, this NZ scenery (and Huntin and Fishin to go with it), is only a 3 hour international flight away.

Still not exchanged $ Daryl but with the Christmas break now over, I hope to get this done and get things underway shortly.
My Doctors told me, No more Motor Cycles, decades ago ........... they made no mention of Jet Boats!

Have a Bonza 2019 Folks.
Homer
