Ahhh Seven Ocean, one can dream . Not too bad here, anchored off Freeport Bahamas. The water is 28m deep and I can see the bottom!

Been driving jeb boats for 15yrs and still have to think about it. Driving a prop boat is instinctive, the jet needs a little thought, not only because you have a great big jet sticking out the back that if wacked on the hull can bend the bucket................not good!

Once had a 1000hp twin jet cabin rib on an ice breaker I was working on, I'll try to find pics. I once dumped both buckets at 25knts, the result was pretty spectacular, not something I'll forget or repeat in a hurry. Imagine being hit by a Tsunami from astern . One of the managers was outside the cabin at the time, I still don't think he's forgiven me !
