: I am considering building the V-Dory to be used as
: an outboard jet in Interior Alaska rivers as well as
: a salt water boat for Prince William Sound. The boat
: would be equipped with a hydraulic transom jack and
: the standard prop lower unit would be used in the Sound.

: Does anyone see any problems with this plan.

Just a question, what is a outboard jet unit.
I think this is the design I will build and am not sure what will be the best power unit. I have seen a Subaru flat four used in a conversion and with a jet drive should work OK.
Have you started construction. I live in Las Vegas. Jon 1-888-667-1812
