Okay guys I've seen these boats on youtube after doing a little reasearch because I have the perfect little hull for this. It weighs less than 200lbs. and made from alum. and is almost 8 foot in length. I was wondering if anyone on here has built one and if so i have many questions before I start my build.
1- I found a yamaha 650 engine(used). I think it will be fast nough? im thinking total weight: motor fuel boat me and helmet will be around 450-500lbs finnished.
2-I was thinking stick steer for response but there is a steering wheel option too.
3-tempting to roll cage on but that might depend on how wicked she is.
4- how did you plumb the engine through the transom to the jet pump....ive seen it done a few ways on youtube. All where very different and few looked propper and not sketchy.
if you have pics id like to see please
