i had a jetski in college and a friend had a pontoon boat. Believe me, we had WAY more fun on that old pontoon boat.
I hear yeah, but I would just about shoot myself if i couldnt go fast. small, cheap,fast is the magic combo here.

Really? What the name of the company. I alway wanted a place to look around when im home. No one in this part of jersey likes fast boats.

No company just a big detached garage that over the years of buying, selling and redoing. Somehow you always wind up with piles of parts.

you got an address, i would love to stop by and look around. Is this a private garage or do you run a business out of it?

It is private. If you pic something up pm me and I will see what I have good luck to you but again I would really think this before buying. I have to get back so to work talk to you later.

Coming from a Mini-Hawk owner...

For what YOU are looking to do, and have fun with... get a PWC instead.

A MH is a toy. It's not a primary boat. We have a LOT of fun with mine, but we just use it as a toy.
