The reason I ask is the terminal failures I have seen are due to piston siezure, not parts wearing out, pistons sieze from overheat, detonation, carboned up rings or particle ingestion. Please consider so that you can enjoy all the features and offers on the forum. Kit 1 was built 100% stock and is the kit I used to take most of the pictures for the build. Forgive me if I get the exact numbers wrong but I think I will get his point across. I just wish The Glastron was built like a Whaler. This condition was resolved by a starter containing stronger magnets.
A small parts count and lots of things done at the factory for you make for an extremely fast build, an evening or three of work. It is also my opinion that the motor boat pilots in Grand Canyon are the best in the world. In deeper waters, you are in deeper trouble. I had a hydraulically operated 'stomp-grate' which worked well when underway with speed on but was useless if weeds drifted under the boat at start-up. I would really love to get one of the V8 powered 18' Rage jet boats that were made several years ago. Both places are rather remote in themselves. The only real drawback to owning a jet is clogging the intake with weeds.
This made for an very simple, strong and easy to use tow hook. It is a small boat. It is a 1995 model. There should be no air in the line. Is it smaller that the 175? His 5 kids and now many??? Can I remove the trigger magnet the same way, by heating the center of the flywheel? Visit our facebook page for more information One name , 3 us patents with a fourth and possibly 5th and 6th patents pending.
I needed more of a bow rider sport boat for the family. I am using the Midi 90mm fan and chose to keep my tabs so the fan could possibly be used in a later build. Mine has 700+ hours on it and still runs strong. Advance throttle lever in Neutral until it stops. If a five cell is required, I guess I could get a two cell and three cell and hook them in series to achieve proper voltage. I hope someone out there can provide all the information I need to put one of these together. Having personally been through three of the Sport Jet 70s I couldn't wait to get my hands on the Sport Jet 90.

He said they usually sell and upgrade to something else before the motor goes belly up. The worst failures I have seen on sportjets have been piston siezures were the writpin pulls out of the piston and the rod windows the block, these failures are usually due to overheat, detonation or lean mixture. This particular boat is now at the point where it is no longer serviceable because of the many patches and repairs due to collisions with underwater obstacles most likely has already been discarded since I was in the keys a year ago. Looks a little harder at the impellers and drive components and see what you can change out and what you cant. I have flown 6, 7 and 8 cell setups on the 90 and have attempted to install all my components in a manner that allows me to rearrange components minimally with the different batteries. And of course a fifteen footer is going to act like a small boat. I have been in 90 and wasn't impressed.
The Sport Jet also behaves very well inverted and only requires the slightest bit of forward stick to remain on altitude. I recently purchased a prop guard for one of my outboards as I do a lot of boating on the Delaware River, which is very rocky. Hy guys, I know where there is a custom aluminum jet boat that has a 120 in it Question, what do I have to do to install a 175 I would guess pump tunnel, and complete 175 and pump I don't know what the 120 pump and tunnel look like? Boats are always a tradeoff if you want a lite boat with a pump and motor under 350 lbs then the sportjet is great. I think they are 16' hulls with merc 6 cyl jet power. On bigger boats where one cannot reach the intake grill with a hand rake, only a true reverse gearbox a la Hinckley really works.
My question is do I need to replace them or are they still good for a while? Once the formers were notched, the Midi slid right in. I don't have the link but it's not hard to find. The Honda 40 horse outboard with a propeller is by far the most common motor in Grand Canyon. An oar powered Grand Canyon expedition requires almost a month away from the office making it impractical for most but the idle rich, the committed white water enthusiast, or the unemployed. Warranty Submit warranty claim s as required per normal warranty procedures and guidelines.
Advance throttle lever in Neutral until it stops. Severe vibration, at all speeds, was found to be the result of the reverse gate interfering with the rudder water flow. I don't know what happened to all the sport jet experts on here. I'm transferring over to the build thread now. There are several different versions on the market.
I owned that same thirteen footer and of course overpowered it with a 55. Wow no prop to chop your friend up when you knock him off your boat. These engines certainly have had their issues. Check that all oil line connections are secured with sta-straps or clamps. I have had good luck with these reeds.
Some like Boysens and the perform well but I have heard reports of shorter service life, the inner petals curl. A co-worker of mine has a Seedoo jet boat. Once the pedal has been depressed, the Sport Jet immediately flies. They are spectacular, with the plume of water going out the back and the bellowing exhaust echoing off the mountains of Tennessee and Alabama. I installed the ducts, and once I was happy with the fit, I traced the outline onto the fuse with a Sharpie marker, removed the intakes and then used the tip of my soldering iron to trace along the lines to facilitate removal of the covering. Any and all information will be greatly apreciated. It should be emphasized to the customer that the choke system is actuated only when the ignition key is depressed.
