    Question American made PWC'S Are there any? Would anyone buy one?

    Hey all,
    I was just wondering.. with all this talk about buying american, I was curious if there was an american manufacturer of PWC'S(there might be) would any one here buy one?
    I'll save the Mod's the trouble by saying that i dont want this to become a pi$$ing match over what is better foreign or Domestic, keep it on track Etc etc.
    This is just nice friendly question.

    Polaris stopped making skis in 04.

    Tigershark also also was US based. They had major reliability issues. No comment.

    Polaris made a good ski, just not enough market share and or costs were too high. They spent a lot of money developing a 750cc turbo motor when everyone wanted big motors.

    Tigershark had a good run. their company was known as artic cat and was more notable for its snowmobiles. for the first few years they called their jet skis artic cats until someone in the marketing dept realized that was a terrible name. they then called their skis tigersharks. They were average skis. They made one called the daytona that I think was pretty quick. It was 1000ccs but it only did about 58mph or so.. and it was around the time that everyone else was pushing mid 60s.
    They had serious reliability issues and stopped making skis around 2001

    Yeah.. and Hondas are assembled in Ohio but all of the designing and the manufacturing of parts is done overseas.
