Hello Everyone
We are looking to see what kind of interest there is in a Jet boat association for the Fraser Valley and southwestern BC, as Jet boaters grow significantly each year, there seems to be guidance needed for newcomers and people who have been boating for years.
Jet boating is becoming more and more popular each year, we have noticed that a lot of people not only using their boats for fishing but for a little of everything…
We will have an open house at my shop TNT MARINE on January 19th 2008 at 3:00 PM

We do not care what kind of Jet boat you have, big or small, we do need people who have been jet boating for a few years for guidance …and want to invite everyone we can find…
This will be a trial to see how many people are interested in forming an association
you can PM me or email me if you are going to attend, or just show up....

Why just jet boats?? There are lots of people on the river with all kinds of boats. Wouldn't it be better for you to offer this to all boaters. Maybe you would be able to get some of these prop guys into one of your new jet boats. Everyone on the river out there could benifit form an association such as you are proposing. :2cents:

How did the meeting go?

I am interested. I am pretty sure my sled would be one of the originals and has more experience than most (maybe not so much its captain, but certainly the sled) :confused:

I had intentions of going, but too many things came up to do. Are you able to give us a couple of details as to the general purpose and thought behind starting an association? Thanks.
