Has anyone heard of DuraJet

6 posts in this topic

I am just wondering if any one has heard of Dura Jet motors. I happend to come across them at "smalloutboards.com". They seem fairly inexpensive compared to the other options out there but I am just wondering if anyone has used one before I just go and buy one. Thanks.

It still puts your lower unit below the boat to take in water, might be good in a tunnel hull thats meant for normal outboards. I would look at outboard jets... its the same website as the name just take out the space and add a (Contact Us Please) com wink.gif If ya really want to run the river look up RiverPro jet boats, by far the best boats in the country for these rivers around here!

Yes a River Pro would be nice but I just can't fit that in the budget at this time. After a little more research I am not sure if the Durajet is what I am looking for either. But I thought they looked like something worth checking out. Notice my original post was in 2004.

I had a Mercury 20 jet (actually a 25, but they call it a 20 because of the loss of efficiency of the jet lower unit) that I really liked until the water got low and the grass got high! If you're going fast, it's ok but when you are slow trying to get thru low, rock-filled water it sucks up the grass and you stop. By the time you pull it off the current has you back to where you started and you go thru it again. Sold it to my brother-in-law who runs it in the Muskeegan River in Michigan and he loves it.
