A team of students from Calvin College in Michiganhas developed a prototype jet ski on three skis. The JetBlade's skis go completely underwater when landing, but at full speed the unusual jet ski glides on its surface. The angle of inclination of the front skis can be adjusted, the front suspension provides a relatively smooth ride - though, this applies only for travel on small inland lakes with wave amplitude not exceeding 60 cm. Under the rear wheel-ski is hidden a 650-ccm motor with power of 50 hp. The boat already passed preliminary tests. But it looks a bit funny looking on photos. Let's hope the painting will add style to it.
