Wayne Holmes of Jama Boats INC. has eagerly and graciously teamed up with Warfighter Outfitters to get us set up with a custom sled for 2017.

To explain Wayne’s enthusiasm and personal sacrifices for this project is simply an understatement. When word got out on the Facebook group Aluminum boats NW  that we were looking for a used jet sled to fit our growth and budget he hit us up and expressed his interest from the start. Wayne wasn’t able to build a boat from scratch on our budget but he didn’t let that stop him. He told us to hang tight while he made some calls and after a couple days he hit us back with an option that was too good to turn down.

He bartered with a previous customer of his who had a barely used boat commissioned from the year before and offered to make it work for us at the price we could afford. Most would think the attention to detail would stop here and simply would be happy ending to the story, well not even close.

Wayne then has taken the boat in his shop and completely cut out the transom, floor, and bottom then welded in a tunnel and new transom and is fitting the outboard with a jet, all on his own dime and time so we can run purpose built sled to run Disabled Veterans on the rivers. He is also adding in a davit for crab pots and lifting power chairs over the side for our Warfighters on wheels. This boat will have 6 very nice suspension seats on boxes and will last us for years to come. Not to mention he called all over the country to find the only outboard jet AR pump available that will fit our outboard.

We cant thank Wayne enough for stepping up to support us and the Warfighters we serve. Thank you Wayne! We are looking forward to getting this sled on the water and getting some great video of this beauty in action.
