Check out this (Thing) Pickle fork do hicky. It look's like 2 jet Ski's ran in to the back of a Wake Craft

If you cant tell from the pic Its a boat that has 2 Jet Ski's docked into the boat. It looks like the Jet Skis Push or Power the Boat.

No idea what that is but it could make for a very cool tender.

2004 XLE WindJet Boat with 2 Docked 2004 SeaDoo XP Fuel Injected Jet Skis

I've seen one that's a deck boat powered by one jet ski. The idea is that you power around in a boat and then float while you swim and enjoy the SeaDoo.
Problem is that it was slow as a boat and did not have the room of a good boat. Well, that and it ate a lot of fuel because the jet ski was not running at an optimum load.

I'm almost positive I saw something like that on Baywatch. I would bet $5 on it. I just can't find a pic to post.

Bill K,
One of my friends owned an older shuttlecraft up until this year (he might still be trying to sell it and his ski). Interesting concept, but the positioning of the jetski in the boat made the seating pretty cramped. The OP is just bizzare. I wonder how often something goes wrong with all of the different control linkages on one of those?

Diggs and Chris, the $5 reference is specific to my earlier comment.

Agreed. Docking, undocking, throttle & steering linkages, hows the thing float with no skis in it, etc. etc. One jetskier on their own is too much. 2 or more, plus all their passengers... thats a disaster.
Just a strange concept altogether. Doesn't surprise me that neither were very successful.
