    Gold Hog conversion on Jobe 45 Yellow Jacket.

    So I am going through the process of converting my Jobe 45 Yellow Jacket to all Gold Hog matting and adding a 2" Jobe Crash Box header for dredging. I have previously used UR mat under the existing expanded metal and riffles, but was never quite satisfied with all the extra components/parts cleaning during clean up. (As a sluice box only.) Keep in mind that when I lose the flare my box will be 36" long. (10" wide) I'm looking to make a light/portable dredge for playing in the creek prior to coming to work. (I work 2nd shift) The pump is the same on Doc recommends for the Mini. (52 Gpm/3000 Gph)

    So the question is I know I'm going to use a piece of UR under the crash box, but was considering one of 3 options.

    1. UR, SC, RB, SC, RB, RB. (Most likely setup.)
    2. UR, RB, RB, RH, RH, RH.
    3. UR, SC, RB, SC, RB, SC.

    Looking for input? Suggetions, complaints, etc... Keep in mind I am limited by size. (length here/ 36" = 6 pieces)
    This could be helpful to others considering the same conversion.

    Just remember the GH mats needs lots of water flow and run the sluice from 8 to 10 degrees. You should have about 1" deep of water running over the mats.
