    I've been surfing the web looking for companies that make a 12-14 ft aluminum jet boat. So far the only one I've found is a company called Motion Marine. Are there any other companies in the States that makes small inboard jet boats?

    I looked him up, looks like he hasn't been on here in awhile. His aluminum rib does sound like an interesting concept.

    Jet Boat Companies

    Hello Muskymania

    TANSL has designed a RBB (Rigid Buoyancy Boat) to our requirements, that is currently being prototyped for production. Aluminum hull construction, LOA 18.4' , max beam 8.5', mid-engined SBC Chevy V-8, with jet drive. The ride won't be quite as dry as a close-coupled engine/jet unit, but the handling and maneuvering will be exceptional.

    The rigid buoyancy system is rather unique, so we'll have to keep that one under wraps for a short while, at least until the prototype is complete.
