I’ve just received 2 brand new jets… So… It is time to start building version 2 of my jet board.
This time instead of converting an original surfboard into a jet board I am going to build a board around the needed parts.
My 1st idea was to build a board from wood, but this is on hold for now… I’m going to use foam.
For the blank I will be using EPS blocks in combination of Styrodur and fiberglass. (The styrodur will be used to make a sandwich construction). The plan is to keep the blank below the 3 kg!
The board will be 160 cm long, wide 60 cm and thick 16 cm.
As this is a jet board, it needs 2 watertight compartments.
1 for the battery’s, and 1 for the motors/jets/ESC’s
The battery’s and ESC’s will be in a water tight box, but the motors/jets not
I might consider making 1 big hatch covering both battery and motor compartment. (any thought on this from you guys?)
I’ve seen many differente ways on the forum of watertight hatches, but unfortunately no how to’s…
Anyone here who might know of a how to on hatches / compartments?
Also… Any input is welcome!
