I had to read the entire article to see if this was joke or not. Just another $17K toy.8p

the use of an engine instead of propellers makes for a safer tow boat with superior acceleration and quicker planing
Umm... Since when are engines and propellers mutually exclusive? Ha!

I remember seeing a video of a guy that created something similar out of a wave runner or jet ski. Looked like an accident waiting to happen.

Those have been around for a long time. I knew a guy that had one 30 or so years ago. I remember the one glitch was that it could turn around on you if your pulling too hard. Also, it didn't really track that well. I was only about 7-8, but I do remember thinking it was pretty cool.

Have a friend in IN that used one and it got away from from him, needless to say the results.
I may still have the video .. this video is from a SeaDoo.

Video from Lake Freeman Indiana.
Had to push the sea-doo across about 50 ft of ice to open water.
