    Default crazy airborne Alaskan jetboat

    This is pretty cool. Not many boats able to do this without doing a faceplant!

    Default sport joe

    Ask Karold (of Karold's welding in Fbks) how many entire bottoms he's replaced on sport jons, XS's and soon SJX's. $37,000 is a lotta coin for a 1/8th inch bottom and some UHMW.

    Do this with a sport jon....and watch all your sheet metal screws pop out!

    yup...a lot of guys think you can drive like Compeaus advertisements and not trash your boat....it says very little about the capabilities of the boat though...

    I feel the message from the advertizment was not suggesting that everyone should jump their boat, but to display how hard the manufacutre is testing the new hull design and it is a pretty neat / impressive short film. The SJ-X does have several ribs and gussets welded under the skin as presented on the web site.

    I do own a SJ-X and love it, although I do not have the coin to be out jumping it or the guts even for that matter. Skinny water is more than enough excitment for me.

    After bottom replacement...I don't see any bragging about the 3/16th bottom in their specs?? I could be mistaken though....

    I still think it's a lotta money for what you get!

    TJM- My comparison was probably not the most appropriate, but got my point across! Or did it?
