86 Howard

Wed, 09/02/2015 - 21:03
Hey all, not new to the site or boats. But I recently picked up a new to me Howard. Coming form a 77 Southwind jet, I'm in love with this boat! Took it to Havasu two weeks ago and there were 2-3 white caps everywhere. Something in the Southwind I would have ran in fear from and found and cove in hopes it would calm down. The Howard, out pulling a four person tube like it was flat! It's totally different to drive, so I'll have to get used to that.

It needs a couple minor repairs, but it sat for almost two years. And even before that was lucky to see two weekends in the water.

It's set up with a Merc 350 and alpha 1 drive. Outdrives are like Chinese to me, so that is where I will have most of my questions. Like what prop to run and what not.

local high school drag boat demo

Wed, 09/02/2015 - 19:15
Spent a couple of hours with the kids from the local high school shop class today. The instructor had asked if I would bring my boat in and talk to the kids about it. Most of them seemed really interested in the whole thing. There were lots of questions that showed they were truly engaged. The boat was apparently all over "Snap chat" (whatever that is) and the instructor was turning kids away that weren't even in shop class. It was a lot of fun. Attached Thumbnails

Steering Feedback -- How much is there?

Wed, 09/02/2015 - 12:36
I'm looking for some guidance from there group here. Building my first jet boat and I've never driven one. I'm trying to decide on a steering setup and there are some new systems that feature No Feedback in which they are designed to eliminate any torque transferred back from an outboard or stern drive.

How much feedback or torque steer is there in a jet boat and is a system like this work considering?

Thanks!
