My wife and kids are pushing the Yamaha SR230 jet boat. I dont fish much, so I am too, debating this. I can tell you this, if you do get a jet boat the best one seems to be the Yamaha SR230. For 27k you get a 23 foot boat, trailable, with trailer, with twin engines, both yamaha 4 stroke, and transom lounge seating. Check them out at www.yamaha-motor.com
. This jet boat seems different than all the others. This one has 20 degree deadrise, and a more substantive hull. There have been numerous reviews of late. For example check out the review in the August 2003 Trailer boat magazine. Please let me know if you rule this out or in and why. It could help me decide as well. Crazy, but if i dont get the SR230 I am gonna get a Dusky 233 or a SeaSwirl 2301, which I know are so very different. Go figure.
