This is an idea I have been looking in to. Some of the best fishing in AB is on the rivers. Just need a way to get out on them. I remember reading an article by the Jensen's a while back on their drift/jet boat setup. Here is the commercial but I cant find the article yet.

Looks like a Crestliner Jon with a Evinrude Jet.

There is a decent tunnel hull jet on kijiji right now too:

What do you experienced drift jet owners think? Is this Alumacraft a good boat for maybe 3 people? I'd like to fish the NSR all the time and a couple trips to the Bow per year. Also would add oars to row.
