Looks like my present boat will be sold soon so first choice is to order a 25 foot inboard Wooldridge Sport Drifter jet. Pretty much narrowed the motor choice down to the 6.0 380 hp VVT engine with the following options:
Heater/ Defroster - how good are these heaters for late Sept use?
Stomp grate - is it needed?
Twin battery switch
Full width swim step
Hard top with canvas back and sides
Trailer guide on's
Looking for advice of people who know more than myself because I never owned an inboard jet before and have learned it is much easier to order it than adding it on later. What about a sand trap? Would appreciate hearing from you guys who run the Yukon and Koyukuk as I want to order this boat with no regrets on how it was built.
Or would you old timers skip the inboard and put a 250 outboard on the back and call it a day? Any other boats to consider in the same price range?
Thanks in advance.
