Has anyone heard of DuraJet

Recommended Posts

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.

      Have not been here in sometime. Thought this would be a good opportunity to get back on here. Got out for the C season, arriving just before sunrise  and the birds were already on the ground. Started with an aggressive calling sequence "Purr into a loud Yelp" there were birds North and West of my location responding. This guy decided to take a look about 30 minutes later. He got within 5 feet of my blind full strut. Something I have never heard before he started to hiss at the decoy.  Not a great shot at that range but sealed the deal.

      Very nice! I was kicking myself real hard this weekend for forgetting my fish finder at home. I did manage to bring this smallie in, but they were tough to pattern for me and this was the only noteworthy fish of the weekend. Hope the water temps come up and I can get back next weekend!

      Nice boat Raven! I think I saw you out buzzing around in Wakemup this weekend!

      I got out on the Cass Lake chain this weekend with a group of 10.  We found walleyes still hanging out shallow and scattered.   Jigging with shiners or gulp in 4-10 fow got several walleyes in the livewell.  With the heavy wind we also had a good daytime crank bite.  In the evening trolling cranks was productive as well.  Saturday morning I stuck a 43" musky trolling for eyes. Not a great photo but I was fishing by myself and wanted to get it released quickly. Panfish were hard to pin down with them bouncing shallow and then disappearing with each weather change.  With wind gusting to 25+ miles per hour finesse presentations were difficult. Water temps ranged from 53-60 degrees.

      Spent a couple hours on German. Slow fishing, just a couple small sunnies, the boy and I where happy to be out though.  Water temperature ranged from mid 60s to mid 70s. No fresh vegetation and dirty water. Must still be running a bit behind despite the warm weather.
