    Default Outboard jet tunnel design

    Hi,

    I would like to build and install a tunnel in my boat. I have been trying to find some dimensions as to what works the best. Some jet tunnels have sides that are vertical from the bottom of the boat to the top of the tunnel and others seem to be angled about 45 degrees. Is there a advantage of that angle? I live in Minnesota and outboard jet and tunnel boats are rare to see. If I could get some pictures and measurements of tunnels that work great I would really appreciate it.
    Thanks
    Tim

    Unless you can cut and weld aluminum... an option would be to buy a new boat with a tunnel already in it. I've seen a few tunnel designs the one on my SeaArk is about 25% wider than the foot and about 3' long with 45 degree angles to it ending at 90 degree.

    But what I was getting at delivered here to Juneau it was about $3,500 for a new SeaArk 1652MVJT so for you in MINN just get one ordered from the local dealer and have it for about $3,000 whole new boat. Around here it would cost about $1500 to get one put into a non-tunnel boat.

    Rice MN Aye? Hello from Clearwater...Well, kinda. I'm in MO, but have a summer place on the Upper 'Sippi.

    Anywayz...Jet tunnels can be a bit tricky. I'd suggest speaking with Tom Snyder (717-692-4294). He's built and installed dozens of OB Jet tunnels. If I'm not mistaken, he'll fab the tunnel and ship it to you.

    Attached are a few pics I pulled of the net some time back. But they don't show much detail.

    Hows your project going. I'm thinking about adding a tunnel to my 16ft sprint.
