My 18ft Kurtis, only had it 3 years. Required a lot of attention. I really like my old dependable Sleekcraft.

I will be looking for one at the start of 2014! Like jet boats in all but I am an old 4-speed/posi-trac muscle car guy that misses getting outta shape...I look forward to having pedals and sticks again! Jet Boats=kinda like driving an automatic.

I've had several flattys and still have a 20ft Schiada.  I love my Liberty, but that Schiada is a savior in the chop.

I'm new to boats,2seasons now, and when everyone told me I had to have a jet, I bought a flatty! I love to hate it, it sucks in chop I'm usually sore for a day or 2 after an Elsinore trip, but I love it, my buddy's jets will run me down in chop, but not when it's smooth.. And my boats a turd for now, makin sum changes this winter.. Not sure I'll ever own a jet, unless it's a baddass jet boat! And I'm not sure I can afford that! I know they're out there tho!  :beer:

There's just something about stabbing the throttle,climbing into the override pedal, grabbing the lockout handle putting a shit load of rudder to it , to keep it goin straight, all while the casales singin right next to you!! love it! Probably the same reason I was out in the rain today driving very irresponsibly in my big block 4 speed posi street car!! Till my drivers side windshield wiper fell off! Lmfao

I'm new around here, but not new to V-drives, jets or any powerboats ..

I've driven a few, repaired a few, built a few, raced a few, and even owned a few .

I was surprised/happy to see any "V-drive content" around here .

Let me see if I can throw a photo up here .

THANK YOU !

Such a fun lesson to learn!!!  NOT!!  they don't do that as bad with a prop shaft release,  but holy shit having to prepare for that every time you get off the throttle sucks!!  Good way to get tossed out!!  Lmfao..  God I love flatties!!  😅😅😅😅 but really I do!!
