River Road Jet Boats partnered with Creature Craft Inflatables to make a white water running jet boat. These are pictures of the First Descent of the Upper Gully by a Jet boat this past weekend at Gully fest. That is a Mercury 4 stroke 60/40 on the back

There is a plan to do a full ascent of the Gully in fall of 2018.

Having to see around that big center tube can get you killed.

There are lots of Youtube videos of them being used for their intended purpose.

Stood on those house size boulders lining the Gauley River without the turbines on, and it is still scary water at low cfs. Don't know how or why the motor would be of help going down river. But, if they are used as rescue platforms, suppose they would require power.
