    Can jetskis run where jetboats run?

    Can a jetski explore these kinds of rivers? I assume the they are both jet drives but do they have the same shallow water ability? Do they have jetski races like this?

    there was a thread similar to this a while ago....These boats have a reinforced aluminum hull that can take a hit from a giant rock or jumps in the middle of the river. I dont think that you would want to do this on a fiberglass boat. to answer your other question. yes you can run a ski in 6" of water WOT. but if you let off you need a few feet when the ski falls back in the water. as for a jet boat....im not certain.

    I don't recommend it, it will ruined your ware ring if you have the stock one.

    Yeah, it makes sense that the weaker fiberglass hulls would be a problem. Hell on delaminating tunnels, haha. I didn't realise the jetboats were reinforced. Thanks.

    6" of water??? Man when we idle out in 3' of water their turning up the sand, and sucking it in, I sucked a rock at aout 2' once, got luck all it did was get stuck in the grate, but I had to buy a new grate.
