Over the years Iíve seen a few 2 seater or single seat mini boats with outboards or jet drive- does anyone here own one? What brands are out there etc if a guy wanted to start looking around?

Sea-Doo Sportster 4-TEC I think they called a jet drive version.

I live on the lower San Jacinto River in Houston and those low-profile speedboats are everywhere, but I have been seeing the same ones and no new ones my whole life so I imagine that most were built in the 70s-80s. Couldn't tell you a brand because most have been re-painted/gelled. I would bet there is a club in Houston that you could find that would tell you.

Pretty sure he means these!

They are all over Instagram and quite popular around where I live in BC. There's a couple local companies here making them. Jetstream boats being one of them.

Check out pnwjetboats on IG.

i actually was referring to the old school ones built in the 70's and 80's i've seen a few for sale over the years and they look like fun was hoping to get some names to research more... those new ones are next level though!

Sounds like you're talking about a Fliver/Flying Fliver. Most were tiller drives, but they did make some with steering wheel/controls too.
