Buck Master

I am not actually building it myself. Having it built by Firefish in Alberta.
Talk to Jamie at High Caliber or Keith a Primus Metal works for local aluminum work.
A basic hull with no paint, windows, floor, etc. is about $14g's.

Yup. Its a 17 footer with a sportjet. My other boat is just to big to take in some of the smaller creeks.

Buck Master
08-06-2014, 04:28 PM
Sold the boat that your saw last and have the green one now pictured earlier on in this thread. Going to keep it for now but will be building a bigger 22-24 footer soon.

Honky
08-06-2014, 04:30 PM
You are a jetboat addict. lol

I think if I was only going to get one jetboat it would be a larger one. That way it could do everything except the skinny rivers

barracuda

shallow water boating is like off roading

that'll be a fun ride are they bolting or using weld on washers to do the uhmw?

Buck Master
11-26-2014, 12:17 PM
Bolting. The weld on would not hold up on this particular application.

how are those merc sport jets? I dont have any personal experience with them and ive heard mixed reviews. some from the mechanics that work on em...

and since you seem to know alot more about jets then I do, any thoughts on a 4.3 in front of a jet? or is that just a waste of time?

Buck Master
06-11-2015, 10:39 PM
Waste of time. Put a V8 in if you are going 4.3.
The sportjets are great if they make it past 150ish hours. Usually blow up before that.

Honky
06-11-2015, 11:01 PM
