Goat and his Jetboat

No one does jetboats like Kiwis…we invented them after all.

The world’s biggest jetboat is the South African Valour Class frigates.

    I’m trying to pick where it is, but it can’t be a part of the country I’ve been often enough to peg it – can anyone else?

      Be the west coast of the south Is but also did look like the Dart river with the bridge, but sure is the SI. I had the pleasure of a friend Ralph Brown and we had one similar boat about the same size, just took 2 people and we could go anywhere back in 1990, the good thing you could push it if you got stuck. Ralph was a great driver and competed in many World Jet Boat Marathons, past away after winning the WJB marathon 1995.

    It’s a mash up of different rivers – I can see the Cascade, Lake Ellery and parts of the Dart or Kawarau in there.

    And Goat’s old boat is for sale here:http://www.trademe.co.nz/667982923

    He’s a bloody legend
