> I fish Lee's ferry with a 21' flatbottom with twin 85 hp evinrudes with jets. The jets will cost you about $1400 more, and you will loose about 1/3 of your H.P.. (with an outboard, an inboard will not result in any loss of h.p. due to the in line system) The jet intake is virtually even with the bottom hull of your boat, so you can navigate the shallows effectively and boldly go where others do not dare. I guess you have to weight out the trade off's and decide what is important to you.
