TOPIC: Nice 14 ft. Jet Streak Hull for sale

Nice 14 ft. Jet Streak Hull for sale 18 Feb 2020 15:24 #102177

The transverse supports are called ribs (I guess that makes sense) and the longitudinal supports are stringers.
I don't know what the angled bottom supports are called :doh:
The ribbed hulls do often feel more rigid for some reason but the hulls with stringers are usually a bit faster, when all other things considered are as near the same as possable.
When the bottom sheet flexes the ribbed bottom creates hooks and rockers, the bottom with stringers creates tunnels when it flexes so it's not as detrimental to water flow.

I guess Feather Craft was looking for the best of each with the angled ribs plus stringers.

Marc, No longitudinal stringers like your Hawk, but 'hat section' stiffeners running side to side, with a couple heavier 'I' beam ones interspersed aft...



Also a couple of strakes outboard of the keel that add some stiffness...


Hull material is probably the same gauge as my Vagabond, but the boat feels more solid overall.

David, Any more thoughts about swapping that motor over to the Vagabond?

The stringers on the JS go straight across. They don't have the V configuration like your boat does.

I'm thrilled to own these boats. I love just looking at them from my deck. It required a lot of driving, but they were worth buying.

Defently cool looking boats. Does the JS have stringers like the hawks do?

I feel the same way about my 12 foot Jet Streak as you do about your DR, Larry. It is zippy and fun but you need to throttle it down when the seas get "wild." It doesn't take a lot of wave action to make the Jet Streak uncomfortable. It isn't a very practical boat but I just love the way it looks

. I think a DR and a 12' ft. JS are great boat to have if you have two boats. Buying a Deluxe Clipper for family outings makes a lot of sense.I bought a beautifully restored StarCraft that is comfortable with four people in it and much more tolerant of less than ideal conditions.

I actually really like my DR, its zippy and when the seas get "wild" I just throttle down. Not having padded seat upholstery yet probably does not help. I have been leaning towards a Deluxe Clipper for family outings but the Jet Streak's have such a following I wanted to get the real skinny on them. They are quite a bit of eye candy.

Yes, definitely best in calmer water. I was surprised when I first saw mine. In person they're small boats, but as JR mentions, solidly built.

FWIW... I think that thing in IN is a travesty. :sick: :( Someone needs to rescue it from that fool and restore it.

I would buy that boat if it were closer and I hadn't just secured a 12 ft. At some point you have to say, "no mas". I'm at that point.

Add the Hawk to the list of wave pounders. It too is a real butt and back beater in a chop. Just slow down and enjoy the ride.....

The Jetstreak is built like a tank. The Crestliners seem to be really solid boats all around. The 14 ft. Jetsreak I had was very fast and very responsive. I didn't spend enough time in it to really compare it to a Vagabond. The 14 version beam seems really skinny when you are in it. It is for sure tougher than a 12 ft. DR. I'm restoring the 15' version now. It has a much wider beam than the 14 so it should be much better ride. We'll see.
PS. The DRs and Vagabonds are a terrible ride on rough water! Jetstreak would be as well.
