    Hello everyone and thank you for welcoming me to the forum.
    My name is Gian and I'm from North Italy.
    I'm owner of a little company (13 workers) specialized in manufacturing stainless steel and aluminum.
    Our skills are TIG welding, CNC bending, drawing in 3D and waterjet cutting; but we don't know how to make the keel of a shallow boat for river!

    For a long time I want a boat like the SJX, but in Italy and Europe are not imported or produced; I'm sure you know this USA baots:

    We want install this jet (One or two):

    http://www.castoldijet.com.au/waterj/jet03.html with a Mercedes diesel about 80 cv power.

    Boat has to be able to navigate in rivers similar to :

    Can you help me for design or give me an email adress of a professional designer specialised in shallow water with pump drive?


    Sorry for precarious English and thanks to all!

    Gian

    Welcome Gian

    Before getting into too much detail, may I suggest you contact Daiquiri, as he is local to you. What you're propsing requires more thought and planning, being local he can advise better than endless slow reply emails.
