    Default Adults $31; under 12 $18, Seniors $25

    "Come enjoy a thrilling ride on a 12 passenger jet boat. A skilled coast guard approved Captain will show you the beauty of the area as you cruize and SPIN around the spectacular French Broad River! "

    Exact words from the Jetboat Rides promo card being placed everywhere in Sevier county.

    They call it "Rafting on Nitrous" To make a reservation (or bitch) call: 865- 453-7301

    I whole-heartedly hope you all make lotsa reservations for large groups!

    BTW... Many cables have now been stretched across the river to the zip-line landing building so expect to see pigs fly any time now.

    Corbo, I talked to my friend that is on a utility type service and he said the same thing. Those things are everywhere. He was also told to clear trees from the river that were hanging out over the water. He then says won't that cause some problems with erosion. He was then told that that was not a concern. I found this very much the attitude of sevierville about the just to make more tax dollars. Make money on the resource but put nothing back.

    Seriously; the river bank needs to be documented before the erosion... I could launch if someone wants to take pictures.

    After looking at the prices for a boat ride, P. T. Barnum was right- there is a sucker born every minute. I have too many other things where I can waste my money.
    Bank erosion would be something to document to see the long term effects.

    Not to mention the petroleum compounds in the water once the engines start to get some age on them...
