I've seen other posts regarding thismatter but I thought I'd start a new one. I have a 2008 21' Customweld Storm Inboard jet boat with the 5.7 V8 Kodiak engine and American Turbine 312 jet pump. I live in Vancouver, WA and fish and boat the Columbia river alot. My wife and I were vacationing Alaska a couple months and just feel in love with the state and want to move up there,( upon me getting a job). My concern is, is it worth me keeping this boat for up there? Are there several rivers and bodies of water that I will be able to take this kind of boat out on and fish from? Or sgould I sell this boat down here before I move and buy a more suitable boat for up there? I know jet boat aren't as suitable for bay and ocean fishing as an outboard prop is, and I've that the Kenai River for instance only allows boats 35hp and under.
Thanks for help!!!!!!
