I know the mold comes from the plug and the mold will not actually be a part of the boat right? Can some or all off the products i need bo gotten at a big hardware store (lowes-home depot) or will i have to order them?
Location: Carlisle,AR Im making it from my own design from what ive seen on the river boats on the rivers in north Arkansas trout waters.
Location: Monroe WA I live on a river in WA and have several jet bots at my house (not all mine), I also lived in Arkansas for a short period of time and no one was ever able to answer my question as to why they use such narrow hulls.
The cost and effort involved in making a one off hull is pretty high, so if you're trying to save money it's not the rout to go. Originally Posted by ondarvr I live on a river in WA and have several jet bots at my house (not all mine), I also lived in Arkansas for a short period of time and no one was ever able to answer my question as to why they use such narrow hulls. Location: Monroe WA It sounds correct, but the rivers we run are shallower, rockier, tighter and nastier, with a large number of boat builders to help perfect the design. Here 99.9% of them are made from aluminum to take the abuse they get and there's no way you can get by with a prop, even a short-shaft outboard would be a no-shaft outboard in about 100 feet. They use narrow hulls to cut back on gas usage the 9.9 's they run will push them narrow hulls pretty darn fast without burning much gas. Oh and one reason they dont run alot of jet pumps is when the river is low you have to run the shallow gravel bars and the risk of sucking up some gravel runs pretty high. I've been on those rivers and that's what confuses me, from 40 years of boating my local waters here and doing a little (and I admit very little) boating on the ones in AR, I don't see why a wider jet boat wouldn't be a better option for getting around in difficult areas.
Fuel consumption is a big issue with a pump, so I can see why someone would go with a prop if possible, I would too if it was possible to navigate our rivers with one. I don't want this to be an argument, I'm looking for the actual reasons each area use such a different style of boat to do the same thing.
Like I said before, this has confused me since I lived there for a short time about 12 years ago.
One thing I was told when I asked about it when I lived there, was the first guys to fish that method had a narrow boat and when the method caught on, others thought it was what you needed to use, so it stuck.
Boats here have gotten wider over the years and it helps a great deal, so don't be afraid of going wider.
Its not that hard to build the type of boat i want so ive been told by my uncle who built one many years ago from another boat they used for a mold.
It would be very costly and time consuming to make a mold for just one or two boats, it would make the $9,000 figure look very reasonable. For more info on jet boats, or river boats go to some of the salmon and steelhead fishing sites in the NW.


You'll have to post some side view pictures of the hull shape you want before I start working on this, because I cannot tell much from that picture in your first post, and if I'm going to make this effort I want the results to look good to you. If you want a design that will give you a shallower draft than a typical flat bottom boat I can put a bottom on it that looks somewhat like the attached image. By the way, the boat you asked for (flat bottom with a 5 foot wide beam at the waterline and 20 feet long) will not plane with a 9.9 HP engine so if you want it to plane you'll have to use your 25 HP engine.
Location: Coastal Georgia I built a fiberglass flat bottom jonboat years ago using the foam log beam method that at the time was under patent by Carolina Skiff.
When making potentially dangerous or financial decisions, always employ and consult appropriate professionals. Hey guys I am new to the forum here and new to the whole jet boat seen and need your advice. Some get UHMW installed on the bottom because it slides over rocks better, but, it adds weight and because it is usually bolted on it adds leak potential.
I would advise adding strakes to the bottom, otherwise it will be like driving a car with bald tires on ice. Fiberglass ect will be applied to the inside of the mold and will come off the mold eventually? Think about it if you had a guide service with 20 or 30 boats wouldnt you want to cut you gas usage by half or more and on most days the boats on the river 50 to 75% of the boats are guide boats so thats why there are so many narrow hulls.
These are sometimes mounted a little higher than normal so you can get into shallower water. I found one company that makes the 60" wide but to pricey for me $9000 just for the boat no trailer and no motor! It's not that difficult to cut a 54" hull down the center and make it wider, so that may be an option. Since the shape of the boat was developable from flat sheets (like plywood) with no compound curves, I skipped the process of plug making and made a mold directly of (1) A 4 x 16' wood base of 2-2x8's with 2x6 crosspieces every 24" that was set on short blocks at a good working height.

I run shallow water bowfishing and I am tired of tearing up props and having to stay in the main channels while running to my fishing locations so I am embarking on the new task of building a bowfishing jet boat.
Probly will just make 1 boat but keep the mold in case i want to build another one mabey for a family memeber. One more reason is the locals that own there own boats may go on buffalo river and when she gets low some places may only be 10' -15' wide with a tree also intruding out from the bank in the way a wide hull would be hard to get down. Is there a HP limit on the rivers there, some lakes here have them, but rivers don't, so a common motor for a 20' jet boat here would be a 200hp tiller Merc or Yamaha.


There are also some skiffs made in the South East that may have a hull in the size you're looking for. That was coated with polyester resin, sanded smooth and then waxed with the rest of the mold. Boats we had some former rowing boat but visioned my car eer units in a large opulent only banks all Group A year ago ago single single was looking on the Internet for a put on Dory Flat Bottom Boat Plans-5. This boat would be 8' feet wide and very open so you can move around easily while fishing, some guide boats even go to 300hp on slightly longer hull.
The large motor with a pump is used to get up river, or at least to other locations, through shallow water, their may be up to 6 people in the boat so more hp is needed.

Berkley style pumps give more speed, ones like Hamilton 212 work better in aerated white water and are supposed to haul more load.
I am a do it yourself guy too, but, think it would be hard to built a boat for less than you could get a good used boat for right now, considering the cost of aluminum, a pump, marinizing a motor. It's not the pebbly surfaced fiberglass stuff for commercial bathroom and kitchen walls, but the hard, dark brown masonite with a smooth white coating. Get some ideas about what you like and how they work, then decide what to do and if you still want to built you would have a lot more knowledge to decide how and what you want. It is my understanding that a true flat bottom doesn't handle well and corners like a bitch. Something like a 10 degree rise isn't going to sacrifice shallow water running and with a 6' bottom and an inboard it it not going to be a tippy platform when setting still.
The Bondo was mixed, spooned into a plastic sandwich bag, the top twisted shut, a corner snipped off the bottom of the bag and the Bondo squeezed into the corners like a pastry icing decorator thing for writing on cakes. Both the clay and the Bondo were pressed into the corners and finished by sliding a tool socket of the correct size along the corner.
