    Joe, do you run the Yamaha in salt water ? I've heard the salt
    environment really chews up the jet propulsion.

    Inflatable kayak with paddle for $50 delivered off craigslist. The guy even brought it to my office inflated lol. My boss now knows I'm nuts. Wish I could go jetski but I don't think my hyundai could tow much. The inflatable is great I can put it in the trunk, blow it up in 10-15 min carry it up to a half mile on my head and shallow draft.

    After seeing AquaChigger use his jet-powered Mokai up & down rivers in VA, I sold up my hand-paddled kayak and got a Mokai for myself. This thing goes just about anywhere, travels in 6" of water, approx. 16 MPH. Large enough cockpit for all my gear, and especially useful after the swimming season closes, many facilities close off their road access to the beach. The Mokai takes me their just fine.

    Use both the Suzuki 70 and the Yamaha Ski in salt water. I do flush both as soon as I get home since I don't keep them in the water. I would imagine those who never pull them out and have Piers would have issues for sure. I do know the Suzuki has sacrificial anodes that need be check every couple of years. Not sure on the ski, but I think it will out last me...Seems like every time out is a adventure...The boat does gets the most use this time of year...

    My cousin built a flat bottom jet boat out of an old 2-3 person jet ski. You guys would love it, goes fast enough that you need people and your cooler of beer in the front or it will without a doubt flip backwards. goes anywhere with like 6 inches of water, he even has a hydrofoil built into the bottom to prevent sucking air in the jet. It's only nemesis is really choppy water that gets air into the jets, though the hydrofoil solves most issues with that.

    Been thinking of getting a Kayak...but once I got to where I want to go (about 2-3 miles open Gulf), I'd probably be too tired to metal detect!

    Ctdd, will it tow a kayak? I'm not getting one, so if you use it next time we go out, either I'm climbing in or you're towing me.
    For $6000, I'll put a new outboard on my bass boat and tow you.
