    How much do you know about a 15 foot Boston Whaler jet drive boat?

    It seems like a good fishable boat for shallow water, but what is the top speed on the boat, are they a maintainence problem, and are they a fuel guzzler?

    The boat has a 115hp Johnson inboard.

    Thanks for any input. I am totally clueless about this boat!!!!!!

    Boston whaler makes one of the best boats made. I saw one cut in half and still would not sink But with a jet drive don't expect high performance and good fuel mileage. You only get to use about 50% of the actual h/p with a jet drive.
