I know, it sounds like a stupid question. The reason why I'm asking is that I'm in the boat market and I was recently talking with a boat dealer that sells both outboard jets and standard prop setups. I explained to him that I like to fish in a shallow river full of logs and would like something that handles well in that situation. He explained to me that while outboard jets are neat, they handle horribly when you hit a log. They don't "give" like alot of tiller rigs do. In fact, he said that there would be the distinct possibility of shearing off the lower unit or ripping the entire motor off the back of the boat, whereas a prop rig would probably bounce off the log with perhaps some prop damage. If the guy sold only prop rigs and was competing against outboard jet boats, I would take what he was saying with a big fat grain of salt. The problem is that he probably makes a bigger commission by selling an outboard jet, because they are more expensive...so that got me thinking.... Any thoughts on this?
