I have been fishing some far north "artic" waters the last month or so. Have family there and was able to stay with them and fish. WHAT A BLAST! Caught lots of 3 different salmon species, char, and rainbows. Anyway, it has raised an issue I really don't know very much about. Although we got around fairly well in a prop driven skiff there were times due to tidal fluctuations or lack of familiarity with a shallow run of river that we crunched a prop on the rocks. I am wanting to check into taking up a jet boat as the draft on them is only a few inches. Does anyone have some experience with them that could at least point me to manufacturers websites, dealers, your personal reviews or just your two cents worth? All insight is appreciated!
Suzuki, Yamaha, Mercury, Evenrude, Johnson all make jet engines for boats. Lots of other custom companies too. It all depends on what you are looking for and how much you are willing to spend. A lot of the companies specialize in racing boats. Below are more for fishing type stuff. Hope this helps!
I had the pleasure of riding in a River Pro and I'll tell you they are amazing they say 8 inches of water but we went over dry land twice these boats can get into places nobody has dreamed of getting to to.
