i actually had one over the summer that i sold to my friend in New Jersey that lives on a private lake.... he was in despate search for a wet bike and i knew where i could get one and he was excited as hell about it.
i may even be able to get my hands on one more wetbike... i just don't know if the other is in running condition or not... they look like a handful to learn how to ride

They made something called the JETBIKE in the late 90's. It did 60 and had the same feel.

The Jetbike was a miserable failure - with lots of shady financials surrounding it - please see their website (www.aquajet.com) - and handles NOTHING like a wetbike however. Jetbikes use a rear-steer nozzle like on a standup or sitdown pwc. So, you end up with a bike that'll turn from both ends like a skateboard (difficult to go in a straight line). If you watch any of their videos you'll see what I mean. Wetbikes have a fin on the ski that keeps the rear going straight - and will only slide during an extreme manuver (a fun one I might add).
Riding a wetbike is like riding a streetbike on the water. They're not the fastest, but you can lean them over far enough to drag you off of the side - while you're pulling several g's.
There are quite a few bikes ready-to-ride that are for sale down here (Texas). I've got a couple, and another friend of mine has a few over in Houston. Prices range from around 800 to well over 10,000 for a pair. If there's any interest, drop me a PM.
