View Full Version : No Midwest squirt boats out there????

Where are all the midwest boaters out there? I know there are a few out there... What kinda float you got and where you running at? Mine's a '74 challenger. Most of my short season is spent at Minatare or Hawk Springs. Saw a few of you guys out at Minatare last season. Would love to get a group together for an annual event or something along those lines.

here in Nebraska boatin' the Missourri river i know there is a bunch up by desmoines and ames thats where i look for parts in fact theres a 69 kona hull with drive on CL up there be a sweet project, around here vintage boats are rare and jet boats are even rarer, when i'm on the lake i've got the only one even close to it only ever seen one vintage and i think it was a stern drive

I am from Powell, I have a 78 Eliminator with a 402. Its a fun little boat but needs to be freshened up, hopefully this winter. I know there are a couple jet boats around but never see any. We go to Bighorn Lake (Horseshoe bend) every weekend and have only seen 3 other jets in the last 3 years. We are there in our 94 Fourwinns or the 78 Eliminator. It would be cool to meet up with some other jets.

Well, pray for spring and come on down to Salt Lake or invite us up there. Kreg usually goes to Flaming Gorge a couple of times a year. Welcome to the site! Oh yeah, and an early June VJB trip to Lake Powell is being planned as we speak.

We'll we'd have more fun going we're u guys go. The family and I go to bear lake once or twice a year but it's getting crowded and the lake close to home is more of a fishing lake but it's fun and I found out you can catch fish in a jet boat.

Cold I've never had a boat out on it just ice fishing on it. The lake I use is Lake Viva Naughtion
