    i doubt it, stand up skis are pretty small. a Sea Doo 3D had a light 951cc 2 stroke engine. I think the 215 HP 4 stroke engine will be too heavy.

    Thank you for your help....we are not the first to do this....two major PWC manufactures that we know of have already done this project (same hull same motor) with great success.....this was the standard in the R&D department....Dad

    Unless I am missing something, there are no pics of the engine actually in the hull.

    Yeah, it might float, if the hood seals well. But how much fuel can it carry with the monster motor in there? 15 min @ 1/4 throttle?

    Why wouldn't it float? Maybe a tad lower in the water at idle, but it should float. If the rider is not over 150lbs, it won't be a big deal. The fitment should be interesting. Sounds like they are going to clamshell the top and bottom deck for access.

    thats what I was thinking.

    Hydro do you have any thoughts on this?

    Plus I mean how fast is this supposed to go if it works out. 215 HP seadoo RXP engine in a 3 ft wide hull or however wide/long they are


    also what class is this in ?

    Go read the link yourself. It's an exhibition ski. It's just for show. The IJSBA has no class...for this ski, or anything other than what is offered by the manufacturers.
