16′ Wye River Garvey

Jason Thompson is testing his 16′ Wye River Garvey with a jet drive. More info on the Wye River: spirainternational.com/hp_wyer.php

 Here’s Jason’s email:

Good morning Jeff,

First water test results are fantastic. With 4 people in the boat handling was excellent, and top speed was 34mph. With 2 people in the boat top speed was 37mph, and handing was very good.

Those tests were on a lake, so I took it to the Chemung river, where I intend to run the boat most. Beautiful. At speed, 4 inches of water is no problem. I definitely need to be moving forward at good speed for that depth, if I’m not, the jet pump sucks the rocks up from the bottom of the river. At speed, this is not a problem.

I’m moving forward with the glassing, and the interior of the boat now that I know the concept is working.

Thanks again for the plans.
Jason Thompson
