Think all it really needs is a stainless steal wear ring.

They can go pretty shallow until you suck up a rock.
I was thinking the same when I went with Chrisco, the water looks great till you see a widowmaker rock 1” below the surface. Would take out a glass boat in a hurry. But these aluminum seadoos would be a riot on the river.

The seadoo spark has a plastic hull not fiberglass. They can take a bit of a hit and arent to hard to replace if it did crack.

I’d be more worried about going over the bars after hitting a rock and getting Phu*ed up by the river bed
