Wow :confused: I didn't know MC made personal watercraft at one time. :D I had seen wet jets on the water but didn't know they were MC.

Tex, not to get too picky, but I think the correct plural version of that anacronym would be "p'sos"

That appears to be the runnerbottom Wet Jet prior to the Coleman/MC's 1992 acquiring the assets of WetJet International, Ltd., plus additional assets of Koronis Parts, Inc. MC Engineering redesigned the bottom to a deep V for a better ride and maneuverability, but they never were able to perfect the WetJet, 3cyl. 650cc Brut engine design and went to Yamahas in the last part of it's existance.

What year did Coleman buy Mastercraft and were they the owners up until a few months ago?

Wet Jet----Pffffft!!!

Now the wetbike, that was a real man's PWC (is that an oxymoron?).

Had a roommate who had one in college----I think it actually only started and ran one time, but I remember it being pretty fun.

I thought of about 5 different ways to spell it but hey...give me a break...the skin on the wall says journalism...I get a little journalistic latitude!

MC wishes the wet jet was an Aprils Fools joke. My dealer carried the wet jets and as others have mentioned they were junk.
