    Default Jet Boat purchase

    looking at getting a not so new jet boat? I have been looking at 16 - 18 foot with a outboard jet, i would like to be able to use it on the fraser as well as the lakes and we take a salmon trip each year out to the broken group islands (like fishing a lake). Any one have any suggestions of what to get or what not to get with regard to this purchase. Definetely not in a big hurry to get one and will wait till i get a good deal.

    Not sure i should be using a outboard jet in the ocean, so if anyone has any ideas on that feel free to send them my way as well.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hey Fyr,
    Big thing to watch out for if you are planning on some bigger water is the degree of bottom you get...mine is only a 10 degree in an 18ft Alumaweld Intruder. Love the boat, but in the bigger waves it can be a little teeth wrenching. With an outboard jet you could always run a motor jack plate to lower the motor and convert back to a regular outboard if you so wish. That way you don't need to run the jet in the ocean and could run it as a conventional outboard. Guess you just need to really decide how much of the ocean you'll really run and how high a prioity it is for you.
    Don't rule out buying across the line...easy to bring a boat back across.

    'jet outboard -directory site:craigslist.org'

    paste that in your Google search box minus the quotes and it will search all the regional CLs for you. Adjust for whatever you like, ie: jet boat, inboard jet, Yamaha G3, lesbian donkey porn, etc etc.....
