New river boat (Bratt Trapper)

Post by Novicaine »

I was planning building a new boat using my old Sportjet 120 this winter, but saw this one for sale, and decided to go for it instead.

It's a 15' Bratt Trapper kit with a Kawasaki 15F (4 stroke fuel injected)... with UHMW bottom. I can't wait for spring to try it out on the water, it looks plenty beefy! I need to add some lights & a bilge pump.

I'm a little concerned about how far the jet unit protrudes out the back, but it has a pretty beefy steel plate under it.

What do you think?

Very cool boat!

I'm with you, pump looks vulnerable.

A few more support struts would be a good investment, IMO.
