    Default Help from MHB

    I've been thinking about a new boat for awhile. I've been going back and forth between Jet and V-drive. I have my Dimarco project and my little Tahiti 16', which are forsale, (word of mouth). I've seen a ton of boats in the last month. Twin turbo'd Southwind Dragster jet to Hondo/Sanger/Dimarco V-drives. Then a bunch of normally aspirated boats that aren't so radicle. What are the pro's and con's between the different hull types? I'll probably only do this one last time, so I want to make the right or somewhat educated decision. Most everything is out west, which is additional $1500 for shipping. Educate me, pro's & con's of jet and v-drives, what do I need to know?

    I would say a jet is an all around friendlier boat. That being said, it would be much harder to match the performance of a v-drive. With all of the crap in our local rivers, I would be terrified to run a v-drive. A tunnelhull jetboat is hard to beat for fun and decent ride quality.
