View Full Version : Outboard Jet Drive?

I was driving to work this morning and was passing a fishing boat and noticed his outboard engine was missing the prop. When I looked a little closer I noticed it was a jet drive!!!
Anyone else seen one of these?

There's a number of those out there. Specially up on the rivers. Mostly on duck boats and Jon boats.
I've seen a few for sale here in Utah on KSL.

Many outboard jets to be seen up here on the rivers... the inboards work great but take fishing platform room, so many guys opt for outboard jets. And like the inboard jets they only draw about 4-6 inches of water on the plane. Its wierd to see a boat that size go up a riffle that you could wade on foot. But you'll see it all the time on some of the Big rivers...
