Sad to get rid of the boat. But invested in a bigger one and this one needs a good home.

Gorgeous boat. I am def. in the market for a new one. Ive only owned a jet. Everyone tells me that a v-drive is a whole different story. I understand the obvious differences but is there anything different about driving styles? Thank you

Fun

Besides obvious speed and fun factor. There is no reverse, no neutral on the fly, need to know what your doing when around docks and 5mph zones. Oars come in handy and are used everytime I take my boat out. Need to be more careful, the boat is so light it hardly gets out of a plane. Way too much fun to drive, you will get a ton more looks, and still beat almost any jet boat with blowers. still some awesome jet boats out there, but they cant jump out of the water.

There is a neutral, to warm it up and make sure everything is running, oil pressure and temps and such... then you shut it off, put it in gear, and start it back up and it takes off. and to put it back in neutral, you shut it off again, shift it, and start it.

Usually you just shut it off after doing some circles to slow it down, grab the oar and sit on the bow and row in. takes a little longer, but get way more looks. wheelie1.JPG Also there is no way a jet will jump out of the water as seen

I do not know what, if any work has been done to the bottom. Doesn't look like it has had any damage. It has been out of the water for 10 years before I picked it up last year. Whip strut? Stuffing Box?

Maybe trade a newer model Harley

$8300 for the boat. I'm taking it to puddingstone saturday and Elsinore Sunday, weather pending. If anyone is interested. Won't be in the water as I just had knee surgery and can't work the pedals
