I'm with you on that I never ran through rivers with many obsticles, but I do remember not liking a stern seat either. I went to Mercs site and saw that jet drive it sounds like its pretty sweet. I wouldn't likely fish tide water more than a couple times a year and never unless it was expected to be pretty flat.
