    I am looking to buy a SeaDoo Jet Boat and was wondering if anyone owns one that can give me their likes and dislikes about owning one. Thanks!

    I don't own one, but we rented one a while back. They are pretty peppy and lots of fun on smoother water (lakes that don't have many 30'+ boats on them). They will beat you pretty good across larger waves or rough water. Sorry that I can't be of more help. From my experience, it just depends on where you will use it.

    In theory they look very tempting. But you will have a lot more fun with a regular boat. When I used to own two Seadoo jetskis I followed the Seadoo boards quite regularly. Most people buy them and sell them the same year. You can probably get a used one almost anywhere. Yes, they use a lot of gas compared to even a boat with a 350 V-8! My Seadoo GSX used 13.5 gal/hr at full throttle, usually about 25 gallons a day. My brothers 25' V8 powered boat uses much less, typically 10 to 15 gallons a day.

    I can burn much less then them and I'm running a mild 540 in a boat that'll weigh close to 6000# on the water. My comfortable cruise will beatthe crap out of them and they not being able to keep up but will burn 2x the fuel.

    You're right, not many people keep jet's very long. The marketing get's them every time though. ;)
