Thanks for the link Jim. I have been looking into it for a couple of years, and have seen that site. I believe that they are one of the only manufacturers of jets for outboards. I have a Johnson 115 HP, which is the max HP for the boat I have. Even with the loss in HP it will be be adequately powered.
The outboard jet website says on their website that the conversion takes about an hour. I was wondering if that is realistic, as I will be using the prop as well. Any comments on transom jacks as well would be appreciated (manual vs hydrolic).
I have watched a shop do it and would say that the 1 hour thing is for someone that has done it alot, it would take a 1.5-2 hours, if you have all your ducks in a row. onething you should think about doing, I'd suggest and additional water pump so you don't have to swap that over each time. The outboard jets site is a great tool and the people there are very helpful.
Right on JBJ!! :thumbup: we have the jack system from outboard jet in house....they work slick if you have a 20" transom. They even have the deflector so that the pump shoe fits nice and tight with no spray in the corners. Do you have a delta pad or flat spot on the hull for a jet or is the hull, vee'd right to the transome?
