Lowe 1448T with a 25hp 4stroke Merc Jet

Hey guys. I am looking to put together a small lightweight Jet boat this summer. I have a 2072 SeaArk that is awesome, but just to big for some of these little creeks I want to run. I want to keep it as small and lightweight as possible so I can unload it from the side of the road into a flooded cor...

Post a pic of your Boat!

I annoyed a lot of folks on here about 2 years ago asking a million questions about Jet boats.... Well, I finally got one, have had it for a little over a year now and have since moved from Fl to Ohio. It is a 2017 SeaArk 2072 FX Jet Tunnel with fwd console and 115/80 Yamaha. 36 Gallon Fuel tank up ...

2018 Mercury Jet?

60/40 Merc will be fine on that Grizzly. And carry a decent load. Plenty of guys running 60/40's on much bigger and heavier hulls. Plus depending on laws in Ky you will be illegal with the 90/65, and the extra weight of the 90/65 will make you squat a little more in the back especially since you are...

New Outboard jet rig

Curious as to how much room you have behind the rear bench for fuel tanks, batteries, bilge pump, etc. Is there room for a 12 gallon tank and 3 batteries plus 2 bilge pumps? Im considering this boat or a seaark 1872 but with fwd storage area and a fwd console and jet tunnel. Similar to h20hawgs seaa...

What's a good setup of an 18 foot jon boat

At some pt the extra weight hanging off the back has got to cause an issue. Im all for big HP but a 500lb 200+ hp motor on a 1860.. So much for all the advice about "keep it light". Alot of guys running 1852 with a 60/40 just fine. As an example... Lowe, G3, and Xpress all have a Max HP rating of 11...

Tracker Grizzly 1754 MVX SC

The new MVX hulls have more deadrise than the old tracker jons. I believe they are 8° now. The pics look like it may cause issues with a jet foot.
Something to look into.

I talked to a dealer in Ocala,FL about one set up with fwd console, pods, fwd storage and fuel tank just two weeks ago and it the bil...

Any center forward console owners?

Awesome. Thank you Heathyoung. Been going back and forth with the G3 or a SeaArk 2072. You may have just made up my mind for me. Hard to find any decent reviews on the G3's or any videos about them. Let alone since they upped HP rating to 115/80.

Any center forward console owners?

Heathyoung....
What speed are you getting with the 115/80. How shallow will she run, and have you had any cavitation issues, and do you have any dislikes about ur G3?

New motor: merc 60/40 or yamaha 40/30

Look at Tohatsu. They make a 25 and a 35 jet. 2 strokes! 35 is a 50 powerhead and the 25 is a 40 powerhead. Either one is lighter than any 4 stroke out there. I kno ur not concerned.... but with a 25hp that has a 40 powerhead ur still legal and with the lighter weight prob much better performance th...
