I've started doing this as well. Except "19ft Fiberglass Bowrider". That gives them enough information to know what it is.I don't think I've every heard a negative comment about it being a Jet Boat. Like others above, most comments are along the lines of, "nice boat."
When people ask me what type of boat I have, my first response is, "a 24-foot bowrider." Then if they're curious, I fish out my phone and show a couple pictures of it. I don't highlight the difference between propulsion types as for most people it's irrelevant. If someone asks, I go into the details but generally after they've seen that 'it's a real boat.'
