    Iíve thought about it . Looked into a few different options . A big problem with a ski or boat will be that is is almost always at full load or at least very high load . Itís hard to say what range would be . The weight would be an issue also . Itís not impossible but I came to the conclusion that the technology isnít here yet for a ski . I was looking at something to match the HP output of a 155-185hp ski. Then there is the whole water and jog voltage issue . It would be cool to make one for yourself but there would be a huge liability if you tried to make one for someone else . Iím sure it will happen eventually .

    I think a company fabricated one already , i also think the technology is here just not economical for mass production vs what we already have and what would be the benefits besides being ďgreenĒ.

    I was thinking something more powerful . Like the Tesla of pwc. You would need a massive battery for any kind of speed and range .

    Problem is you pay a huge penalty for speed, cars don't have to deal with water drag and don't need 300hp to maintain 70-75mph.

    Here is some good math on cars....after you read it, I suspect you'll give up on the electric ski.
