  1. V-drive compared to a jet drive

    Looking for input on the differences in the driving feel between a v-drive and a jet drive in the same hull. I currently have a jet Sanger mini cruiser. This boat looks good, is fun to drive, reasonable fast (mid 60's) and runs loose on the water, but it is not the best boat for skiing...
