These guys are running flat out....not sure about the no lifelines or helmets at times.....but some seriously fast ski's. Actually I thought the new 300hp+ ski's are super fast .....Humble a lot of boats!

Looks like fun...never claimed I was bright, but I'd love to build something that stupid.

I always wanted to build an alcohol gp1200 just for speed runs.
But these new boosted ski's took all the fun outta that

1200 hp? Id like to see a Dino sheet on that. Just not buying it.
First thing I thought as well. There are some n/a Hyabusa powered jet skis out there that are probably just as fast. It would be a fun ride tho

Did not realize how much potential my ski has. I thought it was fast as is. Need to drop it off at a shop over winter and bump up the HP. It already smokes 97% of the boats on the strip.

Sick!! Reminds me of when I took an R6 to 135mph. Shoot took my 2013 Harley Sportster 72 with a 1200 V Twin to 105. That was super sketchy!! Still have it. Man did that thing wobble.

Alcohol in a ski would be all fine and dandy till it leaned out and ran away.. kill switch does no good at that point..

LoL I've been playing around with my 2019 GP 1800R. I have to admit it's been fun, Ski runs mid 80's for now 😇 ...... and pulling HP out of the 1.8ltr supercharged motor is rather easy. Thinking I am going to do a turbo FX build next:cool:

One thing they didnt discuss or i stopped watching is the pump.
That cant be stock.
Plus custom prop, drive shaft and grate.
That fails at 135 and that guy is dead

Fixed it for you. 😁
I’ve been riding around an old Kawasaki TS I bought from Jason Rouse about 9 years ago for $300. It’s slow, but solid as a rock. Tube the kids behind it, taught kids to ski behind it. Put newbs on it...it’s had more fuel through it in 9 years than my boat has...runs 28mh downriver with a 200lb rider. I acquired a Honda Aquatrax turbo not long ago...had some issues but I fixed ‘em... (was free...with 121 hours on it). It should run 70. I don’t think it’ll spend much time WOT.

Given that they are in south Florida, it’s 100% possible they got that GPS reading towing the jet ski down the freeway.
