    "personal watercraft" That is a bit general; you might add some more detail. Power, sail, paddle, or peddle? Flat water, blue water, or white water? Displacement, construction type, and budget?

    So you have the nards to go up against Bombardier,Honda,Yamaha,Kawasaki -co.s with market caps of trillion$ ??
    As well as a dozen Chinese co's trying to get into the market and sell them for half price?

    Here's just one: Shengqi Motion's manufacturing plant covers an area of 1.51 million square feet and employs 800 workers. Representatives said development of the Jet Motor included testing at a company-owned lake located near the factory.

    Good luck

    Well, there is a big hole in pwc industry. Honda is already out of pwc business. Kawasaki and Yamaha are very overpriced so we do not even see them us our competitors. The last company left standing against us is Bombardier which have a lot of there own flaws which I will not talk about in the public forum since it would not be nice of me. Everybody have their ups and downs. You have to realize that everyone starts small. Also we have some huge companies covering our back. So if you are asking me if we are planning on taking on the PWC market and go up against Bombardier, Yamaha and Kawasaki... you are damn right we are !

    Geez, talk about a buzzkill.

    I owned one of the first Honda automobiles imported into the US. I still remember laughing at the first Datsuns. Rock on, dude!

    Alik, I don't really know where you are going with this but I do know that there is nothing free in this world.

    Nostalgic but Nautical.

    Make it trailer-less, so I'll have a vehicle that I can drive to work too. Design a smaller 2 person vehicle, similar to "The Sealegs" design below. Standard PWC propulsion becomes generator assist for battery land use. Change the PWC class to Personal Water "Car". :)
