Diesel Jet Boat Build – Part 13 – Buoyancy Test

DougSteel Boat












Bart and I took to boat to Skiatook lake and enjoyed the morning rowing it about and sinking it. She’s tippy when lean, holds just enough freeboard when completely flooded, and solid as a rock when weighted on the bow. Basically everything we expected and hoped for. Except the leak in the coolant reservoir that we decided to blame on Lars. 🙂 Oh! And the oars float, even with the oarlocks attached. That slapping noise is me patting myself on the back. –Doug
