    Anyone run one of these? I just saw one advertised w/ a 240 hp engine. I was just wondering what they were like pulling a skier? I'm kinda old school and just think you need a propellor under the water, but hey I'm willing to modernize. :D

    I don't know a lot about jet boats but I do know that the engine horespower required to put the same power down is much higher than a propped engine. That being said, they are nice boats and are built well and should tow a skier fine. Just beware shallow water, especially with sandy or grassy bottom.
