Sorry, I only got mobile pics. I'll take a camera with me from now on.
Bought a console to fit over the engine and use it as hatch too. Arrange the parts to rebuilt engine to jackshaft... First we used 12mm ply to create the deck and made it ready for fitting. Used almost the same amount of screws as before in the deck. Then used 3 layers of GRP, and include the side wood where the tube is fitted. Anti slip deck by topcoat and mandurax sand. Made an engine bin from foam and glasfibred it.Transom raised with wood/GRP. And openings in the deck to install jack shaft etc, which will be covered by aluminium....

Artic 28 conversion

Hi am thinking of converting an Artic 28 to in board diesel with jet drive so was wondering are you happy with the end result of your project. Looks great but how does it perform.

Hi,

Sorry for the late reply. We have a D6 330hp Volvo installed on a jack shaft with sterndrive. Top speed around 36 knots. Very good seakeeping and incredible boat in heavy seas. I prefer the sterndrive above the jet, because of the loss of power and slow pick up when jumping a wave due to lack of water.


Have you got any pics of yours?

Best regards
