HOMEMADE MINI SPEED BOAT!! Part 1: Build and Tes
Check out the MINI BOAT I designed and built this summer 2010. This video
shows fabrication thru the initial test run. Test run is short and low
speed because it's cold and I dont have a safety boat
Homemade Minimost Hydroplane Boat
This is a video about the Minimost boat that I built in 2007. This sort of
boat is the predecessor of the jet ski. Many such boats were built by
youngsters in the 1950's and 1960's from plans in Science and Mechanics and
other do-it-yourself magazines. In this video the boat is being powered by
a 1958 18hp Evinrude outboard with a 12 pitch prop that pushes it at about
High speed interceptor - Super fast motor boat for special operations
High speed Patrol Boat - Super fast motor boat for special operations.
Equipped with 2 x Seatek 850-PLUS Diesel
2-Speed ZF Marine transmission, specially designed for defence craft and
Arneson Surface Drive with 6 Blade Inox propellers
Speed over 70 knot.
Custom-f-line was established in 2007, following the idea of Ciro Foggia to
finding the perfect harmony between esthetics, comfort, speed and safety,
thus giving birth to a range of unique and innovative Rigid inflatable
Redneck Jet Ski (Lawnmower drives on water)
We built this from an old lawn mower using 55 gallon drums for the wheels.
it worked pretty well until the welds broke on the barrels and the rear
axle housing broke in half.
My homemade plastic boat/water craft/ raft
This was the first test, including a mini stability test , but being
carefull as this is a city lake...aint that clean, and smells bad, didnt
want to risk falling in at all. But the boat/watercraft works well, cant
wait to go fishing. Made of...Five , 5 gallon bottle (5th is hidden in
middle back completely submerged) , pvc pipe, cement mixing tub, storage
bin , 2 bowls (on front) and milk crates. Oh, and my awesome paddle made
from a dust pan and big end of an old ocean rod.
Extreme 4000hp TURBINE ENGINES pure sweet sound
This Platinum turbine race boat shreds the competitors in it's first race.
Off the line she dusts them literally in salt spray. No music here... just
raw sound as it's captured by the camera. Check out bucket loads of killer
turbine videos on my channel... subscribe, comment, let me know what you'd
like to see.
Glen-L Pee Wee homemade runabout boat
This is the Glen-L designed Pee Wee that my daughter and I built in the
spring of '09. With my 8 year old daughter the boat planes out quickly and
rides great. She really has alot of fun and is becoming very confident and
a highly skilled skipper. Yes, she passed the boaters safety course. I have
less than $600. in wood, bronze fasteners and west system epoxy in building
this. It took us about 3 months working in the evenings. I tried a 5 1/2 hp
engine at first but the boat had troulble getting on plane. I then found
this 1955 Johnson 10 hp at a garage sale. With the 10hp it will even haul
me and my 8 year old around at 20 mph, we have a combined weight of 225
lbs. With just my daughter in it the Airguide speedometer reads 25 mph.
This is much more fun and safer than a jet ski or pwc.
6.2L LSA Engine Install & Lake Test
6.2L LSA Marine Power engine w/ Bravo III XR outdrive lake test. Engine was
installed at Michigan Motorz. Exhaust
was run THRU-PROP, not thru-hull to reduce Exhaust noise. Many components that were
installed are special/custom to make the 6.2L LSA work in a stern-drive
