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
My briggs & stratton powered boat running at sea
Finally got the boat on the water and running great! Used it all last
summer, but i did some mods to it this summer, like the stearing system
that comes from a old Ariens lawn tractor. The engine is a Briggs &
Stratton 8hp from a 1977 Gilson snow blower, and it runs perfect!
Crazy Capizzi on his home made jet boat "Jet Jon"
Hey, my friends call me Crazy Capizzi. This is what you get when you cross
a john boat with a jet ski! Too Fast! This is a $300 97 tighr shark jet ski
motor and a $25 12' aluminum boat. it probably did about 40mph in about 2
seconds. I built it in one weekend. Unfortunately once it got up to top
speed it would make a hard turn. I think it needed the jet to face up more.

How to dock a single-engine inboard/outdrive boat stern-first
Single-engined, inboard/outdrive boats are acknowledged to be the most
difficult type of boat to dock in reverse, stern-first, in a marina berth.
Here are a few ideas which might make it less of a challenge. We use the
low-speed "steer - then gear" method, plus a piece of ribbon, a
non-electronic Rulan helm indicator and a simple length of rope.
..........Oh yes, and we take our time.
No boat was harmed in the making of this video.
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.
