I know this is the wrong board, but I need some advice!

I've been looking for something small for the kids to use (and ME while the INSTIGATOR is at the PLASTIC SURGEON's).

I ran across a '94 Regal Rush w/a single 90hp Merc jet. It's in EXCELLENT CONDITION & I know I can get it pretty cheap.

Should I get this one, or would I be sorry I just didn't finance a new twin engine???

Are there any good deals out there?

I'm no help. I think they're great for a lake like ours though. Safer than a jetski, goes more places than a conventional boat. But not everywhere! I know a guy that grounded his jet boat at a very high speed. They're not hovercrafts.

With jet boats you have the legal right to dash infront of people (especially one that say Hammertime IV) and in and out of fishing boats, and flip sailboaters off as you zoom by.

I'd not thunk of all these wonderful bonus uses!


Actually, I came across a beautiful Baja Blast today. Looks like it may be the one!

Hey Steve, Jenns dad just sold his Searaider for under $2500. He bought a twin engine seadoo boat. MUCH nicer but less than the yahama twin. How about a 10 foot cat with a 25hp mariner? two seater does 35mph. $1500.

It was the cheap used sea rayders that initially got my attention, but I heard nothing but horror stories.

Thanks for the offer on the cat, but the kids couldn't ski or board behind it.

YEPPERS! And here is what it says:

"Steve.....the last time you mentioned this, I offered to let you use my Achilles...if we can keep it at your house and I can "borrow" it when I want, we may have a deal....it's like Hammer's....seats six. "

Yep!
He offered to check any out that I was interested in. Offered me some good advice, but got out of the "brokerage" business a few years ago.

I'm now looking into a davit to haul these wonderful toys out of the water!
