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
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.

Exo Concept EXO - the new age jet ski
the EXO bends two traditional rules of jet ski: prone to ride, instead of
seated or standing, and it is earth-friendly electric powered. lets just
say that on the aesthetic perspective it definitely scores for its
aerodynamic low profile design...

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!
"Bitsa" the lawnmower boat is a testament to the ingenuity of old guys who
love boats! "Bitsa" lives in Olga, Washington on Orcas Island.
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.
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).
Jet Ski Jon Boat
Our latest creation! 14ft aluminum flat bottom with a 700cc 80hp Yamaha jet
ski engine. Runs about 35mph sorry about the bad video, our worthless
friend (Stoffer) forgot his good camera. More to come!!!
