I bought this boat at the end of last summer knowing nothing about Jet Boats with spun rod bearings for plans to make a lake boat. Since then, I've replaced SO much more than the bearings, the list is huge. I've heard horror stories about 16' thin layed up boats that made me think about selling it, etc.
This past Sunday was my 1st time on the water in it (this is my 1st boat) and it was really windy and really choppy, overall a great day though. The boat is a lot more stable than I thought it would be, even when we purposely ran it hard up to about 70ish and let off the gas to test it and see how she would do under a shut down, she went nice and straight.
The only thing I don't like about it, I think a jetavator will fix, I don't know though. When you're cruising about 40-45 and the nose is down, it want to wander and you constantly have to slightly correct it. Not too big a deal though.
Let me know what you guys think!
