    Question difference between V-drive and jetboat?

    Hi,

    I'm new to this forum, I am looking for information about a certain type of jetboat, but that's not my question

    On the forum page I saw the V-drive or jetboats page,

    What's the difference between them, can u have both a jet drive or a v-drive?

    If anybody can explain it to me clear, I'm happy

    google it up. a boats are pushed/pulled by different types of propulsion, a jet drive is basically a water pump that propels the boat, a v-drive is a direct propeller shaft connected to the engine (basically) that moves the boat. out-drives and whackers are other propulsion systems.

    do some homework, ask ur questions.

    Vdrive has a prop under the boat.the engines generally sit backwards and have a driveshaft coming off flywheel to a vdrive gearbox, from it the shaft leaves the box down to the prop.the way the input driveshaft and output driveshaft look as they leave the gearbox looks like a vee shape.theyre known to be allergic to water of any type and youll see them alot in parking lots. jets have a direct drive to jetpump and are allergic to their trailers unlike a vdrive.

    Dare to be different, if it turns out great you can claim you planned it that way.

    Can u check if a boat has a jet drive or v-drive by watching it go on water?

    All right I've been looking for this jet boat sinds I was a kid, never be able to find it tough,

    it's from a dutch movie... I think it's a jetdrive (if u look at the stern) maybe you know which type/model it is?

    Here is a part of the movie with the boat:

    (it's the black one)

    if u could help it would be great

    Default here you go.....

    Here is one that looks a lot like the one you are looking for....

    Jet Boat

    The boat in that video is a jet boat and it could have been made by anybody......Tahiti, Pioneer, etc. etc.

    There are tons of jet boats that look very similar to the boat in the video. Good luck...

    I actually want to build or buy a similar boat as one in a movie I've seen, and that one has a Jet drive, but why would you go for a V-drive?
