    Hi guys. With all these smaller jet boats being built (14' and under), a cheaper jet drive system would be a nice option. These factory RXP pumps and parts can be bought very cheap on craigslist and ebay. That being said, the problem is that the intake for the pump is molded into the hull, and the shoe that the pump bolts to is plastic garbage.

    The plan:

    Design a new intake tunnel and pump mount to be cut and welded from sheet plate aluminum that could be bolted/mounted into any aluminum boat. CNC cutting files would be a must.

    The problem:

    Finding someone who could design the intake tunnel to work like the factory one and not suck air or overstuff at high speed.

    The goal:

    A jet drive system using the factory RXP pump that could be put into any smaller boat for under 1000$ in parts.


    Would like to hear some thoughts on this.

    Thanks

    ~Johnny
