Solo ski boat

Anyone ever see or use one of these? Can't have a problem with the driver anymore

Looks like it would be good for recreational skiing.

Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pristine, well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming "-- WOW--What a Ride!"

That is one of the coolest things I have seen in a while. How much $$$? Looks like you control it from the handle.

The spot I saw in Wired magazine was list just over 10K new. The pix on the web site looked fun, but I would want a really open lake or spotter around me to try this.

Someday when girls quit wanting to hang out on my boat and I have no friends, I am going to go get one of those things (and one of those two wheeled people mover things too!)

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

I saw one at Moose Country Waterski Camp when I was there. Never saw any one use it. Every one wanted to ski behind the MasterCrafts. I bought my MC four days after being there. Biggest impulse buy I ever made and one of the best as well.
