    Default Hi from Lake Huron Canada: Scorpion 230 jet drive mod!

    Hi, Just signed up becuase i got some good info off here.

    I'm presently (Highly) modifying a Chris Craft Scorpion 230 to a jet drive.

    The boat has been lightened to around 1100 lbs hull weight with cabin.
    Expected AUW Around 2200-2300 lbs or less.

    gone is the outdrive and 350 merc. all wood except some unrotted sections in the cuddy all gone and replaced with nida core.


    planning on 425-500 hp, jet drive. to use on the North Channel and occasional 24 mile run across the lake from South Baymouth Ont. to Tobermory Ont..

    I prefer the jet over the outdrive for safety, quick hole shot, and far less worries about shoals and rocks which are a minefield of unmarked hazards near shore.

    I will update periodically.

    That should be fun, was thinking of doing the same thing, for shallow water, more of a cat fishing boat.
