Help Tip: If you have a question that has not been answered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new thread of your own. By starting your own thread, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum members.

Below are some additional forum policies in hopes of all iboats members will follow, Thank you.

1. Please do not reply to old topics or hijack existing topics. Old topics of a technical nature are like a library book, Please do not write in them.

2. Old topics should be considered archives and used for reference only. Please do not reply to them.

3. Do not take over someone elseís topic (aka hijack) with your own question, even if it is similar. If you have a question that has not been covered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new topic of your own.

4. If you have a question for the original poster (OP) and the topic is over 30 days old, send the OP a PM, he may not even visit the forums any longer, or may not notice your question in the old topic.

5. By starting your own topic, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum helpers that may not even notice your question when itís posted at the end of someone elseís topic. And those answers will be specific to your particular issue.

6. Please do not post to topics that have been inactive for more than 3 months unless you are the original poster. We have very active forums and any topic that remains inactive for that long should be considered "dead". It is especially confusing when there is an entirely new question posted to an old topic.

7. Posting at the end of any topic is considered to be hijacking the original posters topic which in turn subjects the topic to be closed if it continues to happen thus not making it fair to the original poster in the future had for some reason he/she needed to return for additional information or provide an update of the problem solved which is always welcomed within a reasonable amount of time frame.

8. Please note that you should see a red banner pop up near the bottom of each inactive topic asking you not to reply to old topics. The Red banner will read: Please note this topic has been inactive for 90 days. For the best results, please start a new topic.

Thank you all in advance for doing your part in helping iboats run a smooth ship.

    Re: How much to change from prop to jet drive ???

    Hello:As far as I know it is easy to convert the motor to a jet drive. The boat is another thing. For the morot take the lower unit off and install the jet foot. The transon maight have to be modified though. I think it is like this. a jet outboard has to be higher on the transom than a prop with the same shaft length. Should confirm that with someone that has a jet outboard though.I hope this helps some.Craig

      Don't know what the cost of the jet drive will be, but it will decrease your horsepower by about 25%. You will need to think about why you want to go with the jet outdrive also. You will probably not be able to carry the load your boat is capable of carrying, especially in the front, because the jet will "blow out."They are fun for rivers with boats with shallow drafts, but make sure you research the jet drive advantages and disadvantages closely before jumping in. If a jet suits your needs, it will be a blast!BTW, jet kits are easily accessable for almost any engine.
      Rules of Repair:
      1. If it ain't broke, give me a hammer, it will be!
      2. You only need 2 tools in life - WD-40 and Duct Tape. If it doesn't move, and it should, use WD-40. If it moves, and it shouldn't, use Duct Tape!
      3. If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.
