    Default Mini Jet boat build

    Ok so i have done my research and a lot of shopping. but now i have a game plan.
    I got the hull its a 19?? 9ft sea jet.
    got the pump. building up a berekley J6 pump
    Got the motor. The berk will only hold 70hp max. the pump is small about the same size as an old kawi 440 stand up jet ski so the motor i am using is a twin cylinder 700 from a wave runner III. it puts out about 75 hp.

    ordered a stanless 20degree impeller for it today form skat trak the only company that still makes an impeller for these things.
    The pump is in good hands at JBP and i cant wait to see what he can do with it.

    I have the boat split in half right now to address issues with the bottom of the boat and the floor and stringers.

    anyway i will be posting pics soon. i just wanted to give you guys a heads up on the project. Im thinking of calling it Project "Small Package"

    I know i would get better performance out of a jet ski pump but the little berk is the coolest thing i have seen in a while.

    Awesome project! I have wanted to do this same thing for a while! It looks like that nozzle will accept a place diverter or jet-o-vater, that would be so fun "frog hoppin" that lil dude. Keep the pics comin!
