    Mini Jet Boat Passing Fad?

    I've noticed what seems to be less discussion about the Mini Jet boats. I've always wanted one, are they as fun and capable as they look? They were a hot subject a couple years ago now they seem less popular. Is there still a local dealer.

    Deshka, Big Su, Yentna 9/2/2015

    I went up the Yentna today from Deshka landing and the water was low but still passable, the confluence of the Su and the Deshka was really low. Seal island at the mouth of the Yentna is about double the size that it was earlier this summer. The Yentna itself wasn't bad but I had to stay left...

    I'm looking at a couple Extreme Shallows and I'm I want to know from those in the know which one is the best for exploring and over all performance/shallow water ability. I'm not overly concerned about utility. This is gonna be more of a toy than a tool. Is the 18' footer a better performer...

    River Speed

    I was just wondering what speed you guys see going down the Big Su and up the Yentna. The two boats I run do about the same speeds. I run anywhere from 28-32 mph down river and around 24-27 up river depending on load. These are my crusing speeds. I'm running outboard jets and I was wondering if...

    Best Size Jet Motor for a 2072 MVJT

    I'm purchasing a 2072 SeaArk with a jet tunnel. I plan to use it to freight materials for a cabin project. What's the best size outboard jet for this application? Can I get away with a 90 HP or 115 HP? Or do I need to go bigger like 150 HP or more? Thanks for the help.

    Local boat dealer

    Is Marita Sea & Ski getting out of boats? Will there be another Wooldridge dealer in the Anchorage or Valley area? I was really surprised to see that they only have one Wooldridge and basically just a couple other small old stock boats. Anyone know what the story is?
