    I was down in Tennessee off the Clinch just a day or two after you guys. Woulda been fun to break out the Supercharged waverunner and meet up, but it was so cold and rainy; I'm surprised y'all didn't freeze your asses off, lol.

    Man that looks like the perfect little jet dingy for the Yellow River and Black River Swamp here in FL panhandle.. Put some GI Military Fuel Can brackets on the engine deck and a Yeti cooler on the swim platform.

    Looks like fun,I think I'll live vicariously through your boating hijinks

    Most boats has a eye hook underneath the front center about 6 to 12 in down , for when they trailer the boat . Its where the safety chain goes. If you tie on to that when towing it won't hold the front of the boat down near as much!!! Drowning the guy in the toe boat Lol. I know it seemed like a bad time but that's going to be a good memory once you guys get in and get dried off and get done paying for it . Most good memories are kind of expensive.LOL

    I'll be in touch with you guys soon. We've got delicate waterways we need preserved to in the Hiwassee Scenic River.

    Add dry storage for warm clothes and some basic overnight gear to those trouble makers.

    Please stay in Florida. You are not welcome here. These rivers are not meant for speed boats. There are plenty of other places for you to show off.

    You’ll have to mount parts on the side like a Jeep. 😂 I would definitely check over all of your welds underneath that you can see. Those skid plates are awesome, it heavy impacts could potentially bust a weld loose. Sick freakin boats though. That looks so fun!

  • mustangwerdo

    Get a trim mod so you can trim the jet stream

    Need to add some windshield wipers to the mtn dew can. Also some light bars or light pods (probably in yellow for better fog/rain optics) as you never know if the adventure is gonna leave you out in the dark.

    Look at it this way, back in the day if you weren't on a bayou, in a pierrot. You were in some party barge like my Granddaddy with fiber hull, hitting a stump in the lake, drunk as hell, tearing a hole thru it and keeping it wide open until you hit the shoreline near the ramp hoping you didn't sink. Aircraft grade aluminum is a helluva thing 🤣

    All the Kiwis line the bottom of their boats with Kevlar mat. Might be worth looking into.

  • DynaDivine

    Tennessee weather is rough and so are the rivers lol. Still looked like loads of fun though wish I would have hit up the river and could have watched yall. I am surprised there wasn't anyone on the river usually they are already loaded with people.

    You HAVE to take the boats on the current river in Van Buren Missouri. Some of the most beautiful water ever

    Watching james get blasted in the face with water while being towed, just made me think of quads towing quads at the dunes. Just getting blasted the entire time. Not a fun situation to be in. Lol

    That was one hell of a adventure.. Something I thought you was in a sxs the way you was bouncing around.. If you are upgrading jack stands boat to fix it you should do the same to your boat and and use the stock one for a spare..

    Guys, I was an outdoor guide for years. About a decade. Please hear me. You need to think about what you’re getting yourself into. I’m very familiar with this part of Tennessee and NC. I used to guide there. This is WILDERNESS. You need to be prepared to be self sufficient. Y’all should have had dry bags with cold weather gear, maybe a tent, a sleeping bag, etc. Probably even some food and water. You survived, but being wet for hours can lead to hypothermia. Had both boats broken, you could have been in real trouble. I know y’all get to have lots of fun, but realize that there are inherent dangers to this stuff. I want to see y’all keep making awesome content for years to come. People die of hypothermia in 70 degree all the time, because they are wet and have no shelter. As I hear of you talking about going to Idaho or ALASKA, get your stuff together. I now live in Washington (used to be in the southeast). The weather up here will kill you, any month of the year, especially in the mountains. You play these games in Alaska, you will watch your new love die in your arms. I hate to be so morbid, but you guys need a reality check. If this happens in Idaho or Alaska, there will be no friendly Tennessee man with a tarp and fire to help. You will be utterly alone. Be prepared. If you need help with gear selections, I’ll be glad to give you some recommendations.

  • dentasla

    Mount small steel or magnesium style safe spots on the bottom of the boat....small skid helpers to keep the sheet off the rocks...... A few strategically placed would maybe help...🙏☝💚
