65 mph on a Sea Doo?

215 hp ... it must feel like you're going 200mph..

might be fun for an hour or so

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!"

less than one hour

Might be fun for an hour or so? Too bad it won't run an hour on a full tank. It burns 17.4 gallons per hour and has a 15.9 gallon tank!!

Considering the cost of these things, I'd rather have a nice used boat. Personally I get bored after about 10 minutes on a PWC. Jet skiis are sort of fun though

I'm with Mag on this one. Why buy a PWC when you can get a boat for the same price??? The most fun I have ever had on a jet was sitting behind the hot neighbor girl when I was 15...whew, now THAT was fun...

I used to call them 'training boats' until a friend rented a couple when we were at the lake and it was too windy to take out the M/C. Heck of a lot more fun than I'd had guessed they'd be.
