I can pick up a pretty nice one for around 33k. The River here is very rocky and shallow in parts. I'm up for other boat suggestions as well. I wish i lived out west where the real rivers are. lol.

Hackem wrote:Thanks MtnRiverRunner. those Alaskans do look sweet , i think they might be quite a bit more expensive. i will give them a call. I'm going to order whichever boat i choose in January to have it ready for next spring. Right now i have a beater jet but want something nice & new. Interesting what you said with the outboard. But don't you lose a little responsiveness? The rockproof has a tunnel jet, it sits up a ways. I'm pretty new to all the bad ass jet boats but I'm learning....lol. i think the sport jet is the way to go. heard pretty good things so far. what do you think? When you say the Rockproof don't appear to be as tough what do you mean? They have .190 bottom with 1/2" uhmw glued and screwed. Just asking and gaining some insight. Thanks
