river Sturgeon adventures
Good evening Bruce,
I just got home from giving
"Miss Intimidator" a good cleaning.
The boat has performed awesome, each day it is becoming more and more familiar.
It was a great experience working with yourself and all the staff involved at Rogue Jet
You and your company are top notch and we couldn't have made a better decision then going with your company.
We look forward to a long lasting relationship with you and Rogue
Jet. We will definitely do dinner when you guys are in town.
We appreciate the hospitality, profesionalism and quality product that was not only shown to us but water tested as well. Please thank your staff for walking us through the factory and familiarizing us with the boat. Special thanks to Joel for driving us to the California Coast; he was great company. Mahalo to you for skimming us across the shallows of an Oregon river, keeping us in the boat and returning us safely to our loved ones..... It was quite the experience. We'll be sure to send you pictures of our patrols in Hawaii and any press releases that support the project.
Thanks Again - Take Care
It was a great learning experience and tremendously enjoyed the time we spent with you and your staff. Touring your factory and learning what was involved in the manufacturing process was very enlightening. Your expertise combined with the implemented quality controls, attention to detail and highly knowledgeable staff really reinforced the fact that we made an excellent decision in choosing to go with your product for our project. I am glad that we were able to resolve the saltwater flushing issue. It has been our experience that it is something we absolutely must do after every patrol.
A big mahalo (thank you) for taking us on the river in your personal boat. It was definitely one of the most exciting things I have ever experienced thus far and can't wait for an opportunity to do it again. That experience also demonstrated the performance capabilities and durability of your boats. If I am ever tasked at recommending a vendor for purchasing a boat you can rest assured that you and your company will the one that I would be recommending. I will send you what ever article's come out that involves the boat and also some great pictures once we put it in the water. In speaking with some of our staff they too are excited in anticipation of the boats arrival.
Thanks again for your hospitality and we will be in touch. Take care, be safe and happy hunting.
The boats turned out Awesome. I am so impressed with all the work your team did to get these built. It was great seeing Joel and he did great with the orientation. Again SWEET boat, It will be perfect for what we need, and that rarely occurs.
I had high expectations for the Rogue Jet Coastal 20 boat because of the quality of construction I had seen at the boat show, but I had not taken a test ride until the day I picked up the boat. On that test ride, I was amazed at how well the boat turned at high speeds and negotiated choppy water. The boat exceeded my already high expectations!!
My two friends who came with me to pick up the boat where also very impressed. One of the friends, who had bought a 19� Duckworth five years ago asked �if I was as jealous of him when he purchased his boat as he was of me�. We have been in some pretty rough water in his boat, which handled adequately, but both of us appreciate the greater freeboard, and handling that the Coastal 20 offers. My other friend, who is a machinist, was very impressed with your attention to detail, and of the sturdiness of the Coastal 20 construction.
The other things that I really like are the amount of storage in the boat, the smooth ride and handling of your Guardian Trailer, and the friendliness of you and your staff. Thanks for making such a good boat and trailer.
Hey Bruce. Finally got a break in the weather to put the boat in the water and see how it fishes. I am ecstatic. I love this boat. The ride is super smooth, it trolls and tracks perfect, fit and finish is next to none. Here's a few pictures of today's catch.
"I first met Bruce in 1996 and since have had the opportunity to spend time not only in his shop but in running his boats. Rogue Jet Boatworks is a lot like Bruce, "first-class". As a guide I have the opportunity to share my boats with many people. I have had nothing but outstanding comments about them with high marks for the way they ride and their overall construction. I spend a lot of time on high elevation lakes that Mother Nature can deliver in very windy, cold and adverse conditions. Never once have I felt my Rogue Jet boat couldn't handle those conditions. In fact several clients have bought Rogue Jets after taking a trip with me. So if you are looking for the best, give Bruce Wassom a call and hell him I sent you."
"I've known Bruce Wassom, the founder and president of Rogue Jet Boatworks, for well over twenty years. We originally met when Bruce was associated with Alumaweld Boats. When Bruce started Jetcraft Boats of Oregon, I ordered one of the first custom designed Jetcraft Whitewater jet boats. Currently, I'm running my third Whitewater. It's a beautiful 23 footer with a forward helm, Chevy big block, Hamilton 212 pump and all the bells and whistles I could want. This boat, just like my two previous Whitewaters, was custom designed and built to my personal needs and specifications. As a long time Charter captain and fishing guide, I feel that it is of the utmost importance that all of my equipment provide me and my clients with quality, functionality, appearance and dependability. My Whitewater meets and exceeds my expectations.
Bruce Wassom is not only a good friend, he is a true professional in the aluminum boat manufacturing industry. He has always displayed the highest standards of product knowledge, integrity, honesty and customer concern. Further, these qualities, as well as Bruce's accessibility, are always just as available to the boat owner long after the boat is delivered as they were prior to the sale.
Before making a purchase, I encourage any prospective buyer to take a ride in a Rogue Jet boat and discuss your needs with Bruce Wassom. It will definitely be worth your time!"
The boat is working great and the weather is improving. I have been hearing great comments by everyone that has seen the boat and there is a long line of folks waiting for a ride. We plan on putting the boat in the parade in a few weeks so the entire community will get a chance to see it. The marine Board is waiting for me to tell them when we can put a media event together and snap a few photos for our paper and the OSMB newsletter. Bruce you were a pleasure to meet and work with on this new boat project. I know you worked hard at getting the boat done with our tight deadline and we appreciate your efforts and professionalism. I was sold on your product and your attention to detail from the time I met you at the boat show in Portland. Please thank your staff for all their hard work and let them know we are very pleased with our new work platform.
Here are the photographs of our beautiful boat you built for us and the salmon we've been able to catch. Everywhere we go at least one person or a couple will tell me what a beautiful boat I have. I kind of smile and thank them for the compliment knowing I did nothing to warrant the return on the compliment but that it was you and your staff that created such a beautiful boat. I was just telling Rebecca yesterday how happy I am with this boat.
"My son Kevin & I spend a lot of time fishing the Yuba, the Feather and the Sacramento Rivers. We get to places you would not believe in our jet boat, that we bought from Bruce Wassom. Rogue Jet builds the best performing and best handling jet boats available today. My wife loves knowing we are using the strongest and safest jet boat on the market, bar-none. I would recommend a Rogue Jet to anyone looking for the best. And we have great fishing stories to tell too".
"We love the versatility of our Rogue Jet. It does everything we ask of it. Lake, river or ocean fishing, exploring where other boats can't go or climbing Class IV rapids, our Rogue Jet always performs and we have never had a single problem. Our Rogue Jet performs! If you are thinking about buying a jet boat, you would be crazy not to consider Rogue Jet".
"I did a lot of looking at boats before I bought my jet boat, and boy am I glad I did. Rogue Jet Boatworks may not be a big company and not as well known as a few others. But Bruce Wassom is committed to building only the best no-compromise jet boats available. Plus their customer service and training is great. Any other boat is just a compromise. I recommend you head for Medford, OR and go for a ride in a Rogue Jet before you decide. You'll be glad you did".
"Our Rogue Jet is our 8th boat, but our first jet boat. We thoroughly researched the jet boat marketplace. And I mean thoroughly! There are 44 jet boat manufacturers in the USA but only Rogue Jet boat's have a 4th generation tampered-radius hull that includes a �" surf board bottom, the Hamilton 212 Turbo Jet and 51 other standard features that make them the best built, no-compromise jet boat on the market. After riding in and driving several other boats, my wife & I were sold within 10 minutes about the obvious handling and performing advantages of a Rogue Jet. When I make an investment, I want to know I have made the best decision. If you feel that way too, then you are going to love the "no-compromise" Rogue Jet boats. Give them a call; they are also great people to work with."
Dear Bruce, Marilyn, Joel, Jerome and the Rogue Jet Crew,
Since picking up our boat on July 19th, we have had the pleasure of staying on the Klamath River for the last month fishing and playing on vacation. The boat now has 40 hours on the main engine and another 40 or so on the kicker. So to say we have ran it through the ringer this month would be an understatement.
Now that we have had some time in the boat to really sit and look at the build quality, rigging and design, all we can say is WOW! This boat has met and exceeded ALL of our expectations. The performance in all categories is phenomenal. Whether your side drifting, Boon dogging, trolling or just running up the river, this boat does it all, flawlessly. We still can�t get over the power and performance of the supercharged engine. Getting on plane with full fuel, 6 people, 2 dogs and a full fish box in less than a couple of boat lengths has come in very handy numerous times this month. Getting through the skinny water was just an instant acceleration away and very comforting to know there was more there when needed. The fuel consumption was also a pleasant surprise. With all of the extra torque this motor has, all that is needed to get on plane and cruise, is to tach it up to 3000 rpm and leave it there. No need to really lean on it. Loafing along at 3000 rpm yields an easy 30 mph cruise and surprisingly good fuel consumption as compared to our other boat.
Prior to ordering our Rogue Jet, we have owned another brand of heavy gage aluminum jet boat for over 10 years, so we had a lot of expectations and ideas of how we wanted our boat built. Because of that, we would like to thank you ALL again for your patients and willingness to build us OUR boat the way we wanted it. You all made the new boat process so much fun, interesting, and A LOT less painful than anticipated.
Please feel free to give our phone number to any potential boat customer as we would be more than happy to talk to them about our experience.
Thank you again,
