    Wow, I was unaware Rinker ever made a jet boat. I would like to see a jet powered express cruiser in the 25-30 foot range for use on lakes and rivers. No prop to damage in shallow water, but still have the ability for overnight stays.

    Take a look at the Talaria line. Love the way they look and jet powered options but big $$

    I've heard of them but don't think I've seen one in person.  I think it was around the same time SeaRay had their F-16 jet boat.

    That Rinker Rocket looks like a lot of fun!  It'd be a great starter boat for my son! :)

    The Hinckley boats are all over around here.  They are crazy expensive, but beautiful boats.

    There was one at my old marina, which was the Rinker dealer in Pittsburgh, that too forever to sell. The couple that bought it was taking it to Ocean City, MD to use it on the bay behind the town. That way they could go into much shallower water and not have to worry about the tide changes.

    Rinker even made a sailboat. The owner of the marina had one.

    There was a period in the 90's that almost every manufacturer made a jet boat like this... Four Winns Fling, SeaRayder, Bayliner Jazz, Regal Rush,  etc.
