Need to know what types of water you fish and what you are looking for out of a jetboat.  Riversmallies.com or tinboats.net has a lot of info on jetboats.

I would also look at Snyder boats and James River jets. Two more very nice river boats.

And if you have an unlimited budget - River Pro boats.  I might argue with Ed that the Riverpro may be the best boat!!!

I'm sure Snyder's are good, but they may not be on full piece aluminum bottoms. Rockproof are.

Dang lots of options . I run smaller rivers with rock bottom shoals that I need to get through . 10"-24" deep , will a good outboard Jet get me through this water ?

I jet will easily get you through that water.  If it is a smaller river and you don't have long runs, you could probably get by with a small 14x48 jon boat with a 25/20 jet.  It won't be realy fast, but will get you anywhere you want to go and it is pretty inexpensive and used ones are usually readily available.  At those depths a small prop with a rock guard would almost work too.

I ended up buying a G3 1860 CCJ boat with a 90/65 yamamha jet . I have had it about a year and very satisified with this set up . It is not the boat a riverpro or rockproof boat is but does very well . With 2 large men and all the musky gear needed for a day trip it will plane in 4-6" of water . I have been in water than has not seen many fisherman , I love jet boats .

Good for you!!!  That's a fine boat!!  Yes, having a jet and getting to the places it takes you is awesome.

Here's wishing you luck and success with it!!
