    I was given a 1990 Yamaha waverunner from a friend of mine that runs a small engine repair shop, it was a complete waverunner but the engine was locked up, I got it home and tore apart the engine and discovered it threw a rod and trashed the block,,,,WAY too much $ to repair it ,,, so I thought about somehow turning it into a LIL boat of somekind,,
    Heres what I ended up with after only 7 days

    Good luck with your lil project. You could always put a hitch on the back of a motor cycle and hall it, now that would be an attention getter to add to it.

    Looks like somebody came up w/a high tech bait boat instead of using them remote control ones...i know some people that would love to have some thing like that at the coast to drop their shark baits, helluva lot cheaper than a zodiac...

    I believe I'd stay in the creek or bass ponds with that one. Where's the rod holders? Where ya gonna put the tackle bag and ice chest? When can we take it for a spin? I have to say I would have never thought of that when looking at a jet ski.

    Chris, maybe it's just me, but i can't see backing a boat in the water with a motorcycle as being a good idea:smile2:
