    Well I could not pass up this little piece of Jet boat history when I saw it for sale in Sac last month. Was pretty rough but I'm a sucker for a challenge , so step one clean up and remediation of the basic hull

    Where are you supposed to find 150lb people? I haven't been in the 150's since before I graduated High School
