that is the coolest thing ive seen all day. maybe all year. I want one...
From a material stand point, he can't have more the $500.00 in aluminum and what would a 750 standup that is in bad shape run? If you have a good break, sheer, and a mig welder set up to weld aluminum,(which I happen to have all the above ) it would be a fun project. You could do a real cool flat bottom as well. Im sure he has a ton of time in it but if I had one, I would run that thing up the santa ana river bottom from prado to where ever it would end every weekend just to get on the water. Think of the power to weight ratio.
Ohhh how the rusty gears in my head are turning.

Thats cool, moves pretty good also!
If the BS in the Middle East keeps up and the price of gas keeps going up, this could well be the future of jet boating!
Great, a new breed of lake lice..... I have a couple of old 440's that never get used, could be fun to build a twin engine mini jet.
I think twin 440's would make one fly
I'm pretty damn good at welding aluminum... Hmmmmm
Cool as shit and stupid safe! 440 stand ups are (almost) a dime a dozen around here. Like the twin idea. I don't have any sheet metal equipment but i have friends that do...Hell, that might be the only jet i would ever own. lol

how do you think a flat bottom would sit compared to the V bottom? If the sides of the hull were about 12" do you think that would be safe or to high? I am thinking about starting with a 5'X12' sheet and going from there. Any and all info would be great.
is this something that would be better if the jet was set back in the boat or would HP help more?
I think this one might be better.
I am thinking more along the lines of a hyabusa
