I keep forgetting that our little minn. wis. boat club isnít so little anymore.    :)    Most of the extras I have I would give away to anyone in need but the shipping would cost just about as much as you could find a new one close to you. Sorry.

Did the river go down enough to remove the no wake on the St. Croix yet ?

I would have to agree with Shawn and the others the 23ís are fantastic boats but I too think they were made for going fast on smooth water. Your going to want something that has a deeper v in it than most of the cvx boats. The only ones I think might work for you if you want something classic with sparkle paint in the 18-20í range I would look for a cvc-18 like this one. It has a deeper v in it and I think it could handle the 2-3í chop. And a small cuddy for all the extras.   Or the 27 would be a good one also.

I have experience with the Ford 460, and the Berkeley jet is a toy I want to dabble with.

Is you comment about the jet because if you have a jet boat you'll run it fast -- and in the chop that is a rough ride (agree).

or

is there something about the jet in slow speed conditions (to avoid a rough ride) where the jet doesn't perform vs. prop ?  Thanks -

I ran a 23 with the 460 and a Berkley jet for almost 4 years. There is a night and day difference between the ride on my now 23 with an I/O. The jets have nothing to "hold" them in the water and you bounce a lot. Waves big or small you are always on top of them and not really cutting threw them. Maybe a diverter would have helped so you could have some trim to help with the ride.

Just my thoughts I ran 90% of the time on the Mississippi and St Croix rivers by Minneapolis. There are always boats with 2-4 ft wakes behind them.

Most of the classic Glastrons are made for a different use other than 3' chop.  Low sides are the indicator.  That being said, if that were the primary conditions I'd face, maybe a 27?  A 23 at the minimum.

There are certainly worse ways to spend your time, like say, being at work..

I had never lost my links for some reason. I had not logged into PhotoBucket in a quite some time and I was always receiving rate deal advertisements through my email but ignored all of them.
