Wake jumping in the Squirt behind a 30ft SeaRay. What a solid little boat.

This just highlights to me (once again) how ridiculous a most of the "Personal Watercraft" have gotten these days when you can have that much fun with 25hp.

I agree Matt, personal water are redicuosly overpowered. A new top of the line SeaDoo weighs 800 lbs with a 230 hp engine and you don’t even need a license to drive one. Not advocating regulation, but I keep a safe distance. I miss the old original Kawasaki standup jet skis with 2 stroke smoke in your face before you got up.

My back hurts to just look at that airborne photo!

It's a great shot. I can only imagine the landing, though :lol:

I'm surprised to see that you was riding solo. I'm sure there were loads people wanting to ride with you. :?

That looks like a lot of fun! I'm building a squirt with a yamaha f20. Looks like you have the same motor. I'm trying to figure out what size gas tank I should get. I'm curious as to what size gas tank you use and how long you can stay out having fun.
