Jet Comparison

Post by Blue Dawg » 22 Mar 2019, 02:44

Got an 18’ Lund Jon. Tiller control. Gonna power it with a jet. How does Evinrude, Tahatsu, Mercury, Johnson and Yamaha 40 to 60 jets compare?
Thanks in advance for your input.

Merc comes standard with the larger pump than the others, and a ss impeller, not sure how wide your hull is or what load you carry, or if you have hp restrictions where you run...but IMO you’ll be wishing for more power

Does the boat have a tiller prop motor on it now? What size engine is on it? Usually you see 115/80 or 90/65 jets on 18ft boats but the 60/40 may "work" if you don't have a tunnel.
