Thread: Anybody know anything about this Wooldridge Boat?

    Default Anybody know anything about this Wooldridge Boat?

    I am trying to get some info on this 12' Wooldridge boat, I think it might make a good hull for a jet ski inboard conversion. Has anyone seen one of these before? Thoughts or ideas on converting to an inboard jet sled? Any info would be nice.

    Thanks

    No, but that looks like it'd be a kick if you did it!

    It's called a Dual Hull. (same idea as a livingston) Very stable. It would be hard to put a jet in as you would need a center pod. Glen

    Thanks Glen, that's what I needed to know. Hard to tell from the picture.

    That'd be a good little skiff. Throw an OB on there and there's a dipnetting platform. An old Livingston was one of my favorite dipping boats. Is that for sale somewhere?

    I think that's from Seattle craiglist, $2K

    Edit: I'm hunting for a little bigger Wooldridge.

    I have one of these! This is the only thread on the Internet that talked about these 12 Wooldridge DH boats.

    ill get a picture up, tried to do it with my phone and it didnt like it obviously. I need to get ahold of the company to figure out how to maintain or deal with the air chambers(?) it has. I have had 5 smaller boats and this is by far the best (valco, gregor, klamathx3). Wide, stable, open floor plan, the railing on the sides is awesome with a 1 year old. The only thing I want to change is to make it a 20" transom as the short shaft gets water up in the power head from between the two hulls when going a little fast (with an 8hp). I know this tread is almost 2 years old, just awesome to see another. I highly recommend these mini Wooldridge's!

    I have the Wooldridge DH, 12'. Fun boat. But I'm in the process of using it on the river with a 25hp outboard jet. This You Tube video shows the longer 18' DH. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a9Te9LT7ifc
