I like it! If I had deep pockets... I'd buy at least one. And I generally hate other PWC.

Re: Nautical Oddities

So we used to do this every year for the 4th.
We would have cardboard boat races. No limit on the CB or Duct tape.

It's always allot of fun. Usually only 2- or 3 boats are actually built well enough to hold up, but that's part of the fun ....... watching people slowly sink away trying to keep their beers above water.

Done here on Greenlake every year. Always reminds me of the glory of Sikaflex Challenge.

Re: Nautical Oddities

With their recent tsunami history (and a bombing), building one there is probably not a bad idea!

Re: Nautical Oddities

I think that photo has been enhanced. That outboard looks like it will barely fit in the bed of that yota.
