I would love to do a river race, I wonder how these guys feel after one of these races?

I would absolutely love to but I'd fear I wouldn't be able to walk when we got back to the dock!!!

Yup, I’d love to ride along.

I’ve hunted some areas above the Snake in ID. It’s a beautiful river. Hopefully some day I’ll run some parts of it with my jet boat.

I'll meet ya! I think I would rather be the navigator -vs- the driver.

That looks like a whole lot of fun. Not sure if the dog likes it or not, looks like he is really happy to get out of the boat.

I would be all in. Not sure my back would hold up. From the races I have watched they flip and roll, cage required!

are the wings on the front to keep the nose from diving under water?
or to help keep it (the bow)down?

No. Boat racing has some of the highest incident of death of any sport. At a certain point I made a decision to ask myself "Do I want to take that risk?"

I was one of them. Had a 9 foot with a 65 on the back. Went from that to a 15 foot panther with stick steer. I have a 16 foot stick stear now with a 50 on the back. You slide around curves . LOL

I wondered that too but aren't they tilted down in the front? That would be bad if they stuffed the bow so it must be to help keep the bow down.
