Video: Alumaskiís Aluminum-Hulled Jet Ski Fears Nothing
There are a few sacred rules to riding a personal watercraft that seem pretty easy to follow: don’t run your ski up a beach, don’t run into underwater obstacles, and don’t suck up anything into the jet pump (to name a few). These seem pretty easy right? Well, for the folks at AlumaSki, those are just too hard to follow. So, they discovered a solution: make an armored PWC.
The brainchild of Mackinnon Marine Technologies, the AlumaSki aims to eliminate all previous fears of puncturing or cracking your ski’s hull on rocks, tree branches or other unforeseen oddities. Pulling most of its running gear and propulsion components from a Yamaha VX, the AlumaSki replaces the traditional fiberglass hull with a durable, hand-formed quarter-inch thick aluminum deck. Surprisingly, it weighs in at 950 pounds (dry weight), which is only about 100 pounds heavier than the fiberglass PWC.
