    My limit would prolly only be around 2000$. But I think if I ever have more time I might just attempt the project myself. I think the product would be cool for sure. Kinda like a rib ski

    What rivers are you guys running?

    IMO with the price of old skis in the sub 1k range just let it rip then buy another one.

    Nice idea/model. I was always wondering when someone would come up with one. I have been riding skis on rivers for over 20 years. Of course, standups seem to always be a better vehicle for it. Other than lack of range. Now, if you could get a couple designs for those hulls. . .
    Nice vids folks. Happy to see others out there that appreciate the skill required for tight operating areas.
    One more note - I think you may want to keep the numbers down due to the conflict with fishermen on said jetboats. IMO

    No disrespect, but you may be asking for info that is better kept secret until he is really ready to launch the product.

    Or a better way to look at is a very knowledgeable person would like to give his input on design before he moves forward. I don't think any tunnel design is going to be revolutionary here to where it is top secret...

    I tried to ride in a river once before my first hull was done. It worked fine going up the river. I was coming back and i slowed down for some bank fishermen, then i hit a unseen gravel bar. Broke the stock grate and destroyed the impeller. Im sure they got a good laugh. It reinforced that there is a better way. Maybe not super cheap, but i like the idea i can make it back to the boat launch. I do try to avoid fishermen, some of them are seriously crazy.

    Skinny, tight, submerged objects water is where it at. I would be a little nervous on a stand-up in a river i didnt know. But more power to you, we need to grow the ranks.

I can make hulls for other PWCs. I use a wetsuit, so riding in cold weather is no problem. Just not freezing temperatures. Some of the best riding is after big rains. I posted a video in the video section. There is a learning curve going from lakes or saltwater to rivers. You really need to be a good rider. I will warn you that once you get a taste for rivers, lakes will never be the same. Who has what it takes?
    Hey do you still make these hulls? Verry intrested!
