    90 MPH jet ski?

    Can 1 or all of us make our stuff go like that?


    like this video?


    Not sure on accuracy myself. In the comments they say it's super accurate and averages timing. I use to sell GPS's and they are not that accurate from my experience. Don't get me wrong, they do work excellent in the woods and on a foggy lake--they will get ya home perfectly.
    But. It use to be like 30-300 ft.. then with the addition of a DGPS-you could get within 3-30 ft. Now days not sure on the accuracy. Is it the same ol thing as usual or have they upgraded even better than 3-15ft?
    If thats the case, guess he was doing 90 mph on that beautiful glass run.! Sounded pretty real. Whatcha think? Busted?.Plausible? or Confirmed?



    Or just forget about that lead sled n check this out. Hold on!




    Now thats what I.m talking about!!!!! YeeeeHaw!!

    Member YudLuz2 Confirmed. On a single pipe. There are some trips in the mid 90's and conversions in the 100 range..

    Yep, that ski is Ben Herman. There are a few 90mph skis on this forum.

    I wouldn't want to fall off at that speed. Helmut or no helmut! Pretty soon you will be able to buy a f-16 canapy pressurized in a jetski hull of some sort doing like 200 probably. A V-12 and a surface drive would sound neat going down the river.

    EXCELLENT answer. Ben Herman is correct! I left out his name to see who knew. I didn't myself. Is he a motor builder?

    Yes, Ben is a builder.One of the tops around. This site has the best and smartest ski guys in the world on it. But it's just one of the things that make it great. It's really all the ski guys and gals that makes it one of a kind.

    It would take a lot of money to get a Polaris watercraft to go that fast...by the way, that's hardly the "Worlds Fastest" 2-stroke GPR, but it's not bad at all.

    that first video , really dosn't look like he is going all that fast , sounds like machine is revving , but if you look at that shore , and shadows on river , they just never seem to go by faster !!

    not saying he isn't moving at what gps says , but it dosn't look like it !!
