Some more background: Sorry that I'm jumping all over the place, just trying to get this posted so you guys can see it. In bowfishing, all we chase here in nor cal is carp. Carp like to hang out in shallow areas, such as sloughs, swampy rivers etc. These places are really hard to get to, and we were not able to make it to a lot of them with our 25 horse outboard. The 25 horse outboard would plane out my brother and i with all of our gear at about 25mph. That felt really fast in a little boat, kind of scared of what might happen now!!! haha.
So I decided to use this method: cutting a hole in the boat, dropping in the existing jetski hull, sealing up with 3m 5200 and 1/4" ss bolts.
Of course after reading a lot of threads of jet ski jons such as psg's and ranchero's.
The most helpful thread I found was Ride_Klein's as it was the most similar application to my method of installation. Thanks man your thread helped so much!
Onto the build: Placed the cutout for the jet pump housing / motor mounts in the boat about where it would sit.
Cut the hole in the boat, started smaller than I needed then worked my way out. Measure 3 times, cut twice. haha. Scarrry
Transom from the inside. Had to hack up the bracing, for those of you considering doing this on a tracker grizzly, prepare for a PITA with the transom, those things are STRONG
