If Wooldridge was to build a Sport Jet powered hull maybe the new Alaskan XL what would you guys think of this setup? Would you look at them more closely with the SJ power compared to an outboard jet?
They have never tried the SJ power plant, the OB jet has worked well for them for many years. They have done many load tests with them lately to show the boats ability to haul a large load with modest power and get fuel consumption reports on each engine they have tried. I did hear one of the guys at the boat shop had 13 people in a 20 XL with a 175 Etec on step headed up river the other day.
If they build one they would get a good load hauling test/fuel consumption report to get some comparisons for each powerplant on the same hull. I just thought I would ask for some input from other boaters or SJ owners out there.
