Saw an interesting video today. Gibbs Technologies is expected to release a Quad/PWC in the summer of 2012. It will do 45 MPH on land and water. When the wheels are retracted they are on a 45 degree an
gle inwards at the top. Takes about five seconds to change from mode to mode. Looks just a tad bigger than a 3 seater PWC. No pricing or other info given.

Sounds like a great idea they cane up with. Think about it, you won't have to trailer your ski any longer to your nearest lake, just ride there. The main two problems would be the speed it can acheive(45 mph blows, I'd fall asleep on that thing) and the biggest problem would be affordability.

Two things. At some point, you need to make the choice either for a boat or a pwc as they are nearly 12' with the 3 seater models.
Another thing is I had the idea for a chainsaw/toothbrush. Doesn't mean I should market it and make it.

Most quads run faster than that.
All new pwc run faster than that.
In either world you're back of the pack...
