    It is a Kawasaki 640 engine. Full UHMW bottom 3/8" thick. Super fun boat!

    Looks like a lot of fun. I drove past when you guys were dealing with the ice by the bridge. Good to see you punched through it and had a good time.

    Yeah we spent awhile trying to get past the bridge and finally just dragged them along the bank. Plan on going out this weekend hopefully the warm weather during the days will have helped the ice along!

    I'd love to see some video of the boats and how they are layed out too. Great videos. I'd love to have one someday.

    Riley,

    Nicely done! I might have to put a mini jet boat on my long project list.
    Those that are successful in Alaska are those who are flexible, and allow the reality of life in Alaska to shape their dreams, vs. trying to force their dreams on the reality of Alaska.

    If you have a tenuous grasp of reality, Alaska is not for you.

    Great video. I agree with Paul. I believe one of these is on my list too. I'm thinking it would be really fun on the Ivashak caribou hunting.
