Boat Reviews By Owners

1978 -- 17' 0" J-CRAFT

Model: Ski boat

Cockpit: Seats 4 people back to back. Visibility is excellent. Has a large tri pod for skiing.

Cabin: No Cabin

Construction: Flat bottom. Very well built. Problem complaints are small stress cracks in bow deck gelcoat. Try not to walk on the deck!

Handling: Handling is excellent, can do full speed turns. Very stable at high speed due to a stabilizer fin mounted to the keel at midships. NOT a rough water boat! Suited best to running on calm waters. Very little pull at the stern when you have a heavy skiier yanking on the rope.

Engine Room: 150 HP Mercury Outboard. Very adequate for this application. Runs about 48 MPH with stock prop. Fantastic for getting skiers out of the hole in an instant. Extremely fast to get up on plane.

General Comments: Used for skiing and tubing. The hull design gives off very little wake. The wake that is produced is very rounded and not sharp. One of the best ski boats I have skied behind. Owned this boat since 1987.
