An 11' deep vee jet runabout
The Dyno Jet utilizes the popular jet pump powering system. There are plenty of "jet skis" that have suffered hull damage but the propulsion system is still in good shape. Most can be obtained very reasonably and are readily available.
The hull features a generous 12 degree vee bottom with built in chine flats, a.k.a. spray rails, deflectors, and lift strakes. Interior longitudinal reinforcement is added after the hull is formed and consist of wide plywood laminations topped with vertical members. They're easy to spring in place, no shaping required and it's a proven strong system that reinforces the monocoque hull structure. And standard 4' x 8' plywood panels are used throughout; only three panels of 1/4" x 4' x 8' plywood will plank the entire boat.
Dyno Jet is easy to build, thanks to the simplified Stitch and Glue building method. Full size patterns are furnished for virtually every contoured part in the boat including the bottom and side planking. The patterned parts are duplicated to the plywood panels, cut to shape, bent around a single form, stitched together, and joints bonded with fillets and fiberglass laminations. The pre-cut plywood planking forms the hull shape automatically without fairing or shaping. You'll be surprised how quickly the hull takes shape. The construction is not complex and this is an excellent first time boatbuilding project.
The detailed plans include complete progressive instructions with Bill of Materials, what fasteners to use at each junction and the proper seam bonding laminates. In addition, GLEN-L has a Stitch and Glue Kit available that contains everything needed to assemble the cut out wooden parts, and Fiberglass Covering Kits to properly encase the hull with this durable sheathing.
Great First Build The plans and patterns were very easy to read and the construction was a great first project for myself. Would recommend this to anyone wanting a quick boat that's easy to build. - Joe Shaw, MO
