I am looking for the best all around hunting type Alaska shallow river running jet boat and options. I have done a lot of searching but would like some real world experience with any Riddle Cargo Jet owners. I am looking at getting a custom 20-22' Cargo Jet with a 6.2 V8. Is this boat going to be to heavy (2700#) to run shallow water? Does anyone know what the actual dry weight of the SJX 21' and Phantom SJ with the 200HP Merc engine? Is the added weight of V8 bad idea for running up 4-6" deep creeks? What options should a boat like this have? I would rather have it built right the first time, thanks for any ideas. The other options are the SJX, Phanton SJ, or a TJ Denali.
