That looks like a prop tunnel hull with a jet outboard on it. My jet tunnel is wider, not as tall and tapers out on the sides.

Going to take a look at this boat, seems like a decent deal. I've communicated via text and the guy has been up front so far, as his ad says the boat was involved in an accident and had a patch welded in which has a lifetime warranty.

Wait another day and someone else will be fishing/hunting from it. I have a somewhat new 1648 with a 50/35 jet and wouldn't take 10k for it.

Looking at getting a used jon boat with a jet outboard. Live in California and would use it in the sloughs for ducks and on the lower klamath/rogue river for fishing. Local forums aren't much help as most people run prop motors in the bay area likely because they don't fish in the lower rivers up no...
