Hello, do you have the Hull without the jet? I want to scale the hull up. thx

Man I can't wait to see some running video. I've started printing the drive n it's massive I just hope it doesn't end up cavitating at speed.

Yeah going to be a bit of trial and error with the water jet I think until its right. Already because I have scaled down the water cooling part snapped off easily so going to have to add a larger one once i've tested it. Also I've got a fairly high speed motor soldered up ready which i'm hoping isn't too powerful. Working on the motor mount at the moment.

Is there a top cover that works seal the boat and other than the inlet on the jet drive is the output still tree same. Love the design n can't wait print one

Yeah there is a cockpit cover. I need to figure the scale out and resize it to fit but haven't had chance as yet. Will upload it soon as i've been able to print and test it fits ok.

May I suggest you add something to the aft end of the cover to hold it on, hitting waves is likely to bounce it overboard as it is now.
Perhaps a screw and a twisting part underneath to catch the lip inside? Or just duct tape it...

Yeah that's the plan eventually, probably duct tape it for the trial and then come up with some sort of twisting clip to keep it in place as you say.
