Hey, when the hull is being pulled together theres that big red clamp thing he is using. What is that called? and those tabs that it is attached to are those there when you got the kit or did you weld them on then cut them off later? thanks

The tabs are part of the bottom and cut off later. I also cut holes in them to attach straps.

Engine is in. Need to build some thicker shims and then slide it back and weld the motor-mount mounts into place.


When you are installing the engine do you need to have a engine allignment tool or can you eye ball it? also should the umhw be installed before or after the engine?

I just eye-balled it, we'll see how long the coupler lasts. I think the sea-doos require a tool.

Yes, the UHMW should go on before the engine and fuel tank and such, but I was in a hurry to get on the water. Should only take an hour or so to gut it.

Finally getting around to the plastic install. Got a pre-bent, pre-cut 1/2” sheet from Jetstream. Cutting the hole for the intake was quite scary. I used a circular saw set at 45 degrees. I clamped a 2x6 to the plastic to guide the saw. Using 5/16”x1 1/4” SS flat socket cap screws with 3m 5200 sealant, rubber backed SS washers, and SS nylocks.

It was quite the process to measure and plan out every bolt hole. Then drill the plastic with 5/16” bit, countersink plastic, then drill and tap the aluminum with a drill/tap bit. Broke my first drill/tap bit on the first hole. I’ve got a long ways to go, but things should go well from here out.

Plastic install is pretty well done. Just waiting on sealing washers and nylocks. Windshield is scabbed on. I welded the window frame to 1 1/4” angle. Then welded 1 1/4” square to the boat. The angle bolts to the square making the windshield quickly removable.

Hopefully get everything finished tomorrow and ready for the weekend.

Viking, how is your engine swap coming?

Got out for a little rip today. Smacked one rock in Woodville Rapids and hit a bunch of icebergs. Tried to make it to the Shelley diversion dam but the pump kept plugging up with ice. Stomp grate came in handy.

Looks effing cold (Vikings invented saunas). Did the window solve the spray in face problem?

Mini engine not swapped yet. But soon... sooooon...

It wasn’t cold at all. Windshield made a huge difference.

Great day on the south fork! Lots of mulies, white tails, elk and moose. 900cfs is a blast.

Where’d you run from? I’ve ran from Menan and Lorenzo at 900. It’s way fun! I really should get the boat out so I can play.
I'm brand new to jet boats so don't listen to anything I say.

Awesome! What was the diversion like?

I see that the river is at 700cfs in Lorenzo. Would be fun to run from Menan. I bet the confluence is super skinny right now.

The diversion is kinda messy and requires some zig zagging.
