Upson Jet
by: Anonymous

Did you ever get your Upson Jet Mariner running? I have a mostly complete boat and not sure IF I can complete or not. The main thing I need is an impeller. I found a company that will Blueprint an impeller then manufacture me one but I need an impeller that they can blueprint.

Upson Marine Jet
by: Dennis H.

I worked for Upson in the early '60s and made the drawings for the Upson Marine Jet that appear in the Popular Science Article. I remember many aspects of manufacture and assembly of the boat project. It was fun to put it together.

Thank You All
by: Frank Curtin

A True Gentlemen , Mr Nathan Pyle. In one short phone call this man was able to answer the bulk of my questions into the origins of my boat, The Now Rare 1962 Upson Jet.But that was just the start. He told me to come on over and see the Gages & stuff that he had gotten at the closing of the company. WOW, Not only did he have this stuff , HE GAVE IT TO ME, FREE for the promise of a ride once she is ready. When was the last time you heard of such a person.I am glad to report that they still exist and will be riding in my boat soon. For those who are interested I will get around to posting some photos soon. But for now I just have to say Thank you Mr. Pyle
