Location: South Australia Home Built Jet Dinghy's from New Zealand Just thought some of you might like to see these little home built aluminium jet boats from New Zealand. There are quite a few on youtube, some with Jetski engines, others running 600 to 1000cc motorcycle engines directly coupled to PWC jet pumps.
I just came across these on youtube etc and thought members here may be interested in seeing them, or even be inspired to build one them self. I was merely searching the web for small 8-10' speedboats as I am wanting to build one suitable for a 25hp short-shaft Merc outboard I have.
Location: South Australia Here is a link to the page showing the plastic sheet being made and fitted, with his explanation. We have a great jet-sprint series here in Australia, back 15 or so years ago we even had a course here in South Australia at Currency Creek built on the side of our lower Murray River system near Goolwa. It was a perfect location where the course sat in the bottom of a natural amphitheatre and the crowd watched on from the high land around it, and the sound of those big V8 engines at full power echoed off the hills.


When making potentially dangerous or financial decisions, always employ and consult appropriate professionals.
Instead of asking people to message you with all of the info you're probably better off to have a read thru the many pages of available info on here and decide for yourself what you want to use from that. Have decided to just run with the 750sxi pump and uprated impellor.Progress on intake so far.
Pretty happy with how this gear is turning out.Modded the stator housing and did away with the single 6mm cold water feed to the engine in exchange for 12 x 4mm holes.
This was an alright boat for my 1st but after watching a few videos on youtube from some S.I.
25 x 10mm flat bar cut at a nice angle to aid intake flow to go in between the bars for spacing. So after getting in touch with Leighton I soon had a set of plans in my hands.Wanting to keep things easy-ish I kept an eye out for a Kawasaki 750 to use as a donor for the project.


Just needs some mounting holes drilled then countersunk then the intake is ready to go into the hull.Once intake is in then engine mounts etc are next. Managed to find an aftermarket flame arrestor on trademe for a good price also.Found a driveshaft from a 900zxi which is 100mm shorter than the 750sxi one so will give me more legroom. Pretty tight fitment and Im not the wide-est of lads so that will keep larger ladies from being co-pilot  Anyone got any ideas for rubber mounting seats to absorb bumps etc ??Plans were given to a good mate of mine to see what he could do. Intake being sorted this week all going well.Still have a few things to finish on the hull itself, screen etc then sum stuff inside.
