Default Surfjet

O.K. I know it's not a winder and may not be considered a boat but has anyone seen another one of these recently? This one is a buddies someone gave it to him and with a little tlc he got it running last summer (briefly). I want one but I don't think they come up very often. Been watching ebay.

I've only seen one, it was on Seattle Craigslist, a couple of years ago. A waveless surfboard, lol. Tell your bud to Hang Ten !
Like the tires on the cart...

I don't know if Hangin Ten is possible pn one, we only had it out briefly & thought the impeller went south, but we'll try this summer.
Thats his cart we go on a couple trails at the campground those work nice in the mudholes along the way. Mine has low pro tires and wheels, and I have to run the holes fast.

Why not get a new one Although, I bet they're pretty pricey.

I still think in the weird boat catagory the Kawasaki jet mate takes the cake but see one those surf jets before they looked cool but really don't see any practicality in it

I think the older ones are way slower 10 -15 mph maybe. It sure seemed slow on the water that day. But he hadn't messed with it much. He's a mech at a powersports shop.
