    Shweeet

    A couple pics of the toy, a Seadoo Challenger 1800 jet boat.
    2 x 110hp with 40mm jets, she did 55 knots, but i'm hoping for 60kn.
    I've just put recon engines, new jets and carbies in, running them in and working on the tune.
    I,ve had it for about 3 years and have had quite a lot of fun. funniest thing i've seen was the legs of a passenger up in the air as they rolled over the side they did not hold on good enough during a 360. I gave them another pair of sunnies
    I haven't got the guts to do it at full speed but, have been close
    It also jumps waves like a jet ski, landing softly most of the time. The ribs are strong and close together and the weight is at the back so it lands arse first.
    Seats 7 and has 150 liters of fuel, a built in esky and storage aplenty. The stereo is a work in progress with Alpine head unit and speakers. 4x100 , 1x1000 Amps, 2 x 12" subs and a second AGM battery to go in, should be plenty loud
    Sorry i don't tow it with the GTS, got a 4x4 for that and i don't want the HSV that close to salt water!!!


    Will post some more later.

    I've had a couple of turns, where it lifts off a ripple as your turning and when it lands Donna has made me wear the lanyard when playing up now!!!
    The best fun is in the wake of a large vessel doing speed, we see plenty of air then.
