I'm wondering if any of you have any experience with inflatable jet boats? I like the concept - portability, packability, lightweight, seemingly can get to spots where no other boat can go - but am not sure of all the pros and cons. I've owned various prop and jet boats in the past, but am looking for something to access smaller and more remote rivers. I'd like to find a good approach for getting dropped off in the headwaters of remote rivers, moose hunting, and floating out. Non-motorized rafts and inflatable canoes are slow when one gets to the flats, especially in a head wind. A small jet would at least putt its way out.
I've checked into the Alaska Series inflatable jets (13'2" and 14'2") and they seem like a potentially good option. Is this a crazy idea, and are there better options out there?
Any thoughts and advice will be greatly appreciated.
