Re: MI Malahini Build, Post Flip.

I got my Squirt in the water last Sunday, just in time for freezing rain and snow this weekend! :(

Re: Ottawa Squirt Build

Hi Anthony,

Looking good. I think you'll find the chine block really helps during assembly and will give you confidence that it is not going to come apart down the road.

Re: Working on starting a jet driven Squirt

Hi Wingridr, I wish you luck with your Jet Squirt. I looked at that option for a long time, but I saw nothing but problems with jetski engines. They are getting a lot of HP out of a very small package, and things are on the edge engineering wise. If you are doing a full rebuild on the engine, you sh...

Re: The Not Cruise

The Michigan governor has banned motor boating. Canoes and kayaks are ok, but not motor boats. :(
