Advance to 3:15. Now I see why so many on here are blasting Jet Boats. I didn't realize this was even possible. Bad News.

Some high tensile wire across the river should fix that problem

Funny you should mention that Andy, I caught a landowner on Stouts Creek who had done just what you are saying.....I guess to discourage floating and wading???

It wasn't a fence for livestock I'm not that stupid.....just one single very stout wire right at the waters level across the creek in a very bad posistion for paddlers thats for sure.

It is only a matter of time before we start to see those kind of boats on the lower meramec and gasconade, why can't the MDC put out some common sense regulations for jet boats?

It's too late they are already here. The only difference between these follows and some I’ve run across in the Ozarks is these guys don’t mind putting 10 years of wear and tear on their boat in 5 minutes. There’s plenty of stupid to go around.

Daryk- it's really not possible if you have a brain. Strictly momentum. I can't even imagine what the bottom of the boat looks like. One false move and they punch a hole in the bottom and they will have a hell of a problem.

Andy, I think your right. The rivers may look like this someday.

Crazy, they must have an inboard 250hp

Wow, don't think I've ever seen anything like that. That boat must be made of titanium. Crazy is all I can say, and dangerous! Hope I never run into those guys out on the river!

There's no such thing, as a bad day fishing!
