I'm new to jet boats. Always had tournament wake boards boats. I notice people on this forum use the term "its a good river boat" a lot to describe a boat. What exactly makes a boat a good river boat? Is it the motor, the lay up (heavy, medium or light), etc? I realize they are referring to the Colorado River.
a good river boat in my opinion
25 and under
not that bigger cant be good on the river
Jets are good on the river cause there is no prop to hit if the water level is low
shallower type v hulls
smaller boats dont always handle the bigger open bodies of water when its chopped out
Welcome to the world of not screwing up the water for everyone else, lol
Well, I did ask for a "river boat" LOL! Yeah its going to be interesting being on the other side of the fence. The goal on a wakeboard boat is to make the wake as big as possible. I hate those guys now!
In all seriousness, within the context of this forum, pretty much anything that runs on pump gas could/would be considered a lake/river boat. Some guys claim they have a lake boat, because they don't race, but they can't fill up at the local station... I suppose... if it's not a race boat, what else would it be??? Just boils down to your definition.
