Thread: New Russian-made jet raft

  1. #1

    Default New Russian-made jet raft

    Does anyone have pictures they'd post from this year's Great Alaska Sports Show...of that bad A russian-made jet ranger style boat that was displayed in Ben Boeke?

    I have a Fbks friend who is describing this concept for a mod he's wanting to try...and I dont want him to reinvent the wheel...

    Thanks in advance.

    If he's looking to add a tunnel to a current inflatable I'd look at what some guys have done on the kaboats

    The russian inflatables are very different in design than the jet rangers

    Go to their web site and see that sucker in action. They run some skinny whitewater and provide a cool map (Topo) of where they went. Bad Arssss.

    Very pricy item though!

    Tough raft and an amazing trip they took also.
    Looks like one heck of a package and very capable with a relatively small jet unit.

    Sounds like Jim has negotiated the first shipment to get into Anchorage mid may. Not sure what he has left I think a few 420's, a couple 470's, and a 380.

    Thanks KK that's a pretty good demonstration of how these things run! Jim said he had a rock in the grate so he was cavitating a bit when he made that run as well!!
