Don't know much about jet-drives. Do you think they'd make a good platform for fishing?. Can you troll with them? I've read that they handle poorly at slow speeds.

as long as the hull is designed to take the beating it's going to get, the jets are nice... a jetdrive mounted to a regular hull is a recipe for disaster.. cuz you know damn well your gonna be bouncing off the bottom trying to get to those real skinny waters.. I'd also check to see if the stern of the hull flattens vs the V hull all the way to the stern.. I'd much rather see it run flat towards the stern..

then can the windshield, mount a side or center console, fore and aft decks for casting, baitwells fore and aft and she'd be a river monster with a 20-30lb anchor setup
