I've been wanting to get my first jet boat all winter. I'm going to go look at a 2005 19' alumaweld stryker w/ a 200 optimax. I was hoping you guys could give me pros and cons about what you've heard about the boat. If you could suggest any questions I should ask the guy when I look at it tomorrow. I'm wondering how the v-hull would do in shallow water. Just wondering if I should wait around for a used sport jon to come up since I hear so many good things about them. Just trying to get as much info as possible before making such a big decision. Thanks for all your advice.
