First shallow water test of my custom “River Prospector” jet-boat by RockProofBoats.com This boat was designed for the purpose of gold prospecting on white water rivers, in particular the Klamath River in northern California. This video was shot on the White River near Buffalo City, Arkansas on Buffalo Shoals at the lowest water level. This is the closest conditions that I could find that are similar to the Klamath River near Happy Camp, California, home of The New 49’ers Gold Prospecting Club.

Patrol Boat, River PBR in Vietnam | Military Special Forces
Patrol Boat, River or PBR, is the United States Navy designation for a small rigid-hulled patrol boat used in the Vietnam War from March 1966 until the end of 1971. They were deployed in a force that grew to 250 boats, the most common craft in the River Patrol Force, Task Force 116, and were used to stop and search river traffic in areas such as the Mekong Delta, the Rung Sat Special Zone, the Saigon River and in I Corps, in the area assigned to Task Force Clearwater, in an attempt to disrupt weapons shipments. In this role they frequently became involved in firefights with enemy soldiers on boats and on the shore, were used to insert and extract Navy SEAL teams, and were employed by the United States Army’s 458th Transportation Company, known as the 458th Seatigers.
