I'm looking to learn how many people use jet boats and what kind. I have a 1997 Lowe 160SPL 16.5' mod-v w/ a 5' beam and a Johnson 50/35 outboard jet. She's a great river rat, but I'm thinking of upgrading at the end of this season or sometime next season. I'd like to get something a couple feet longer and a foot wider. I'm also thinking of moving to an inboard versus an outboard. I hear the inboards are more efficient, faster, and quieter than a comparable outboard. I used to have an old 14' fiberglass tri-hull w/ a 15hp Merc. I loved the motor, but I kept tearing up the prop. After having the jet for 2 years, I can't see ever getting a prop boat again. The jet is so much more fun, she can go just about anywhere, and it's a blast to see my friends all white knuckled and pastey faced as I rip across 8" of water at 20mph. The jet has opened up a lot more water for me, I would just really like to get something a little bit bigger. I'd like to hear about other jet rigs and what ppl like/don't like about their setup.
