    Hot Rod V8 Wavecrusher PWC

    I thought you all might enjoy my new PWC. Iíve been hot rodding and boating all mylife, several PWCs going back to the first family JS440 in 1978.Lots of my hot rods feature big and uniqueengines.I thought a PWC with a giantcar engine would be about as far as you could go on that theme, so I built it.Here are the basics; Wave Venture hull, reinforced w/ full length engine mountstringers, Ford DOHC aluminum V8 (330 hp), Custom 1.7 OD gearbox, fabricatedcarbon engine cover/ upper deck,etc, etc.It runs 80 mph.Different thanmost PWCs in that itís pretty heavy so body English isnít terribly effective,but it sure is fun riding around on a big loud powerful engine

    I agree with everyone's comment, but how do you not burn your legs?

    Welcome. I have seen this other places on the Internet and it always peaked my interest. Would love to see a video of it running in and out of the water. It looks as though the quality of fabrication is second to none and it looks really really cool too. Please post some video if you can. Thanks.
