    Court Boice has extensive experience and knowledge as a river jet boat pilot.  Court has operated over 8,000 tour trips on the Rogue River since 1972.  In 1973 he ran the first aluminum passenger boat ever used in Oregon and in 1976 he piloted the first inboard river jet to navigate the entire 120 miles between Gold Beach and Grant's Pass, Oregon.  In 1985 Court designed and operated the first three-engine white water passenger boat ever used in the world.  Using river jets, Court has transported pickup trucks, large John Deere tractors and other unique and valuable cargo into wilderness property.  Click here to see an album that contains some of these photos.
