    the things people will buy to get to 80 lb of meat. It looks like it would be great for PWS!

    Ha ha ha, yeah I'm with you, out of my league!

    Still cheaper than the 30' motor home with a pair of brand new 700cc ATVs on a dual axel enclosed trailer that I see around ever other corner o the Denali though!

    Well I don't think they buy it to get 80lbs of meat. I think it's HOW you get the 80lbs of meat....kinda like a 150,000 super cub to catch some salmon across the inlet.

    To get into sheep country, I'd need UHMW on the bottom of that sled and a jet-sled of fuel to haul behind that rascal. Looks like a fun toy...errrr...I mean tool to harvest meat.

    I"ll take my 40 jet and 18 foot lowe over that for hunting. But would be a fun toy.

    For that price it should be able to sprout wings once you got up to the headwaters......

    Sheep hunting...... the pain goes away, but the stupidity remains...!!!

    Too expensive for a jet ski. I'd rather have a Riddle Marine Motojet that can haul 2 people and more gear. And it's $5,000 less. Still outrageous but more useful.

    Who in there right mind pays 30k for a jet ski! I would sure like to know how many this company has sold. I'm not thinking they will be around to long unless building these is more hobby than business.

    Ya, hit a rock in the river on that thing and the next thing hitting a rock will be your head....Rather have a small 16-20'er with a jet for river. I did however see a guy in 4-5'ers casing for walleye on Lake Erie on day back in the 90's, about 7 miles off shore on a ski.
    Life's to short for an ugly boat

    Mackinnon Marine just posted 22 pictures of the ride they did over the weekend on 20 Mile if anyone is interested.

    While these might not be great for getting into sheep country, I can see where they would be very good for some of the rivers and getting to good fishing spots. As far as the cost, people in Alaska spend a lot for their 'toys' and I see no difference here. It will be interesting to see how they are excepted though!

    These machines will allow people to get into some really narrow and shallow rivers for fishing or hunting. It will easily run on plane in 2" of water and is a lot more maneuverable on tight rivers than a normal jet boat. I titled the thread "perfect ride into Sheep country" because the last three we sold have been to Sheep hunters.

    I've never ran a jet or jet ski. But what happens when you stop in 2"
    Of water?

    Is the hatch in back a dry locker for gear and meat, or does your gear get strapped to the topside?
