Might be interesting getting a fire hose/nozzle fitting which could hook into the jet output port, for a little more camp protection during dry season...

Anyway, how about making your own aluminum jet boat from plans? Build exactly the length and hybrid multi-chine hull type you need, stronger, better-built with better fittings and maybe cheaper than commercial. Most metal ocean cruisers have gone over to aluminum as the welding is well-known now, 30% stronger than steel by weight, and much more impact resistant than foam-core fiberglass composite. I'd guess 50K would get you one helluva nice new 20-foot v8 jet boat.
