But it looks like great fun and certainly demonstrates these boats don't lack for quality in construction or components. I cringed at the lack of lifejackets, kill cords or padding on that Hummer windshield but it made me laugh in places and you gotta love the casual running over a floating log.
However, from experience of landing even deep V hulls off waves just slightly rolled off horizontal I'd expect these near flat bottomed brutes to spit bodies a long way if they landed any way from flat off even moderate chop!
But then that could be part of the fun

Been jetboating in NZ up rivers and it's a lot of fun!
About as soft as any dory
but the big sccop bow would shorten the pain. I'd a mate worked for Shotover Jet in NZ - nice work if you can get it
. Looks properly scary in their videos. See one of their boats on test here and listen to the sound-
! Even the guys at SJX would be impressed (except there's no where for the dead moose).
