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!

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
Home made chain-drive outboard
I made this out of a used 5-horse Briggs motor, a go-kart clutch, a golf
cart wheel hub, and some scrap metal. Basically I needed an outboard for my
little aluminum boat, so I used what I could find around the barn. The
only thing I had to buy was the used propeller ($7 at a garage sale).
According to GPS it pushed my 14 ft. boat and two passengers 6.4 MPH going
upstream in the Black River (near Lake Erie).

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.

Redneck Jet Ski (Lawnmower drives on water)
We built this from an old lawn mower using 55 gallon drums for the wheels.

axle housing broke in half.
