Title: Transom wash over guard
Post by: BlackSheep on December 20, 2018, 07:21:20 PM
I have a recently purchased 1976 Rogers Jet boat with a 460 Ford.  I have owned boats since the 70's including a Schiada V-drive, but never a pump boat. Apparently "wash over" the back is an issue. Other than making my own does anyone know a shop who fabricates those units for specific hull designs?

Is Rodgers Custom boats still in business, I see a posting on facebook but there was no contact number.

Does anyone know who originally restored my boat. I wouldn't mind contacting them with some questions. One thing for sure whoever painted her did and above average job!!!

I've owned at least a dozen jet boats. Never had a wash over issue on any of them.

To answer your question, most acrylic and plastic shops can help you with this. It's quite a simple process. I've made several windshields.

Thank you guys for the welcome and information. I have gone the full circle from a 16 ft. Jetster with a 115 outboard through the flat bottom v-drive to family boats. No more kids, just myself and my lady; (well the dogs) they scattered to the four corners of the USA, so when this boat came up for sale I purchased her. I have had many custom machines with 4 wheels 2 wheels and no wheels. This paint and the detail that went into restoring this boat is a "Cut" above. From the awesome layout of the paint to no runs/evenly laid down metal flake. (That's difficult, I love metal flake) Anyway, hope you all have a Happy and Safe Holidays...
