Sonny,

In general I believe boat salesmen like I believe used-car salesmen!

But Craig Compeau is a good man and really knows his stuff. One of the things he knows is how to maximize performance in an SJX.

Sea Ark with a jet unit will get you to the same place and cost you a lot less money.


Water is good for two things, Floating Ships and making Beer.

Have probly 500 hrs in them. Sold my last one with 340 hr on it. It will take you places you should not go but that is only if your willing to scratch it. Get the one with the black ice bottom if you going to do it and get a top with it and a window cover a boot and a couple gun case to. Do the maintenance and burn Mercury or yamalube oil and will last a long time burn bad gas and cheap oil will cost you.

The seamark predator is also a nice boat have at least a 100 hours in them to. I build all the tops and accessories for them

Sonny don't get sucked into the latest overpriced fad. Get a regular ole john boat with an outboard jet.


Who is John Galt?

Speaking of an outboard Jet. Anyone know how to get a hold of a new or used one for a Yamha 4 stroke 90. Apparently hard to buy new even.

FT, Check explorer industries out of Edmonton. They regularly sell the 90/65 Yamaha Jet with their boat packages. I have one, love it.

Yeah, but Dirt there's no way a johnboat with an OB jet can do this! (although I'm not sure why you'd ever need to. Looks cool though!)

If that is what you want to do, build an air boat.


Made it almost 3 years without censor!
