    Default Crazy!

    I dont know much about snowmobiles, but how do they keep from cracking a head or ingesting water into the air intake? Reguardles, that is some insane stuff.
    Boating is nothing like cocaine, boating is much more addictive and results in bigger parties!

    Well oldsquirt beat me to that vid post lol

    Ive seen a few like you mention so you arent dreaming anyway haha

    I'll have a look thru my collection of stuff, I think I have the one you mean buried somewhere.
    I have the full copy of RMT adventures, its a pretty damn good dvd. Cool sledding stuff etc

    Its hard to resist takin the boat out over winter if you can find open water. Snow/ice isnt much harder on the boat than rocks The day we filmed mine it was pretty warm actually, like 16c (60F) You just REALLY dont wanna get wet. Some of those rugged boats with full UHMW bottoms will slide forever on ice....
    If you ain't hittin bottom...you ain't jetboatin!

    Clint is a great guy ! had the pleasure of servicing his sportjet a couple of times and a run up the Nechako afterwards don't know how well the extreme redneck vid's do for him but ironicly he told me that ecotour's with forgiener's into the backcountry were the biggest part of Rocky Mountain Trench Adventures

    sleds come stock with there air intakes up high behind the windshield , and if you got a longtrack sled with some beans in it, some wide skiis and can ride they go for miles up river but your right if you go down in deep water your gonna quench things and probably stuff the engine

    It sucks when your sled loses rpm and sinks though

    Around by me they are used mostly to go from bar to bar

    or Canada

    lol

    totally real, I'd bet they usually just recover the sled. As long as it isnt running when it goes under its usually not too bad to get em running again, especially a 2stroke. I'd be a lil more worried on open water of dying, you dont have long in those weater temps.....

    Note the smooth almost glass water and that there's very little turning going on?

    Here by us it rarely gets to 23 degrees Fahrenheit in winter. I have seen snow once in my life. I tell people here I have a jet boat and the first thing they ask me is where did I get the Aero engine and does it have wings.
