    I was down at the river yesterday and ran into these guys. This is what you get when you cross a jet ski with a jon boat. The boat is a 10 footer witha 750 polaris jet ski motor. There was a lot of debris and ice floating down the river but it didn't stop them.

    I would like to have seen a video of that contraption. It looks dangerous as a cocked gun.

    Kinda looks like a death trap to me too! :cool2: I'll stick with my boat and feel safer on the water. Enough stinking Jet Skis on the water I fish. Wish they would outlaw them or make a certain area for them and keep them away from the fisherman!

    I looked at this boat very close, it really wasn't a bad fab job. They did a decent job on it. It would be cramped to fish 2 out of,but it will get thru some shallow water. The one thing that disturbed me was they had no life vest in or on the boat. They offered me a ride and I gladly REFUSED I did take a bunch of pictures though. I would guess this would run around 35 mph in 3 inches of water. Luckily where I fish I only see the same 6 8 boats all year only because of needing a jet to travel the water. Looks like there is another one.

    With the fins on the rear and the funky green paint, I thought that it was a 50's Cadillac at first glance! LOL. Where there's a will, there's a way.
