Thanks for the response. I only have limited experience on a jet-powered flat bottomed skiff. These boats are common in the Core Sound area of NC. They have many advantages in this skinny water area, but they're not so fun at slow speeds.

This is a modified Hunt deep-V, 45 degrees deadrise forward tapering to 17 degrees deadrise at stern. So not a “flat bottom”. And mine is 17k lbs, so there’s that. Hamilton water jets are used on MANY commercial boats to great success, so it’s probably safe to say they are a different breed than the small skiffs. So far I love mine - we’re taking our first trip this weekend and I have to say that 30 knots opens up quite a few more options than we’re used to.

Wife is very happy - at 26 knots southbound Puget Sound.

My image is deceiving - looks like we’re becalmed, but we’re flying (her pic from co-pilot seat)
