I have always considered a sled to be a Jet boat with a semiflat bottom with or without a windshield. Though after reading other post's some people say a sled cannot have a windshield. What are your opinions?

Jet sleds scoff at the very idea of a windshield. Phuff! Only wooses use windshields.

Fishing is a manly sport for a manly man. No others need apply.

Though it is nice to have Fin's covered boat sometimes. :rolleyes:

I guess I've been calling my boat the wrong thing all these years. :wink: And I sure do like that windshield and top when the rain comes through.

This is just an opinion thread. :cheers: I don't know what the true definition of a sled is...I just voiced my personal impression from living in the great Pacific Northwest all my life! :dance: :cheers:

Thumper,
While you being the tough guy you are :cool: Are out in your boat with your cold weather gear on, with frozen snaught on your upper lip. I will be cuddled up under my top with a mere 75 degree temp. catchin just as many fish as a boat with out a windshield and top. The difference is comfortability in cold weather. Am I stupid and a wuusy????? Or just smart????? Tough ta answer HUH? NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :cheers:

<font size="2" face="verdana,arial,helvetica">"Snaught" is not a word. We do not do "snaught". :hoboy:

There may be a tiny looseness of the nose. But definitely not "snaught".

In Alaska snowmobiles and jet boats are called sleds and they don't have to have any certain helm or hull configiration to be considered a sled.

Hence Jet Sled = boat with Jet Pump!

Thumper I'am with you. All those girlie boats make me wonder just how many of those skippers use midal instead of aspirin. :grin:
A sled would be an over priced shallow draft jet power replacement for a normal life and or female companionship....
