Thread: Thinking About Converting to a Jet

    Default Thinking About Converting to a Jet

    I'm wondering ballpark how much this would cost. I have a 50 hp Evinrude Etec. Can a guy get the parts and do it himself, or is it pretty technical?
    Also, any ideas on a ballpark for remote steering for the same rig? It's on a 17' Achilles raft.

    I bought my jet unit for my 50 yamie from Gary at Greatland welding, i think it was around 1500 bucks and i installed it myself, pretty easy job. I'd think the steering could be done for 5-700 its also a easy install. I have some connections for boat parts let me know if your interested i can most likely save you some money on the steering.

    Stop and chat with Jay Kimberly on Arctic. Best John/Evin guy around. It's not tech, but things need to be right. He will not steer you wrong.
