Jet Ski motor and jon boat
Uncle Frank had a Kawasaki 650sx Jet Ski engine sitting in his shop and a
14' aluminum jon boat stored out back so I decided to put the two together.
Maybe someday I'll do a jet ski powered jon boat project.
Jet Ski engine is currently seized though but Frank told me it wasn't
seized when he put it in storage a few years ago so I'll see if I can free

New Electric Boat - A 32 Foot Torqeedo Powered Catamaran: The Blue Planet 32E
http://www.blueplanetcats.com - The video features the outstanding test
results of twin Torqeedo Cruise 2.0R outboard motors powered by super safe
"lithium-imanganese" battery technology on the new Blue Planet 32E
catamaran. Watch the video and see how well a 32 foot electric powered
catamaran designed for family fun and destination cruising can move so
efficiently through the water without burning any fossil fuel.
The video highlights the Torqeedo electric engine testing and demonstrates
the easily driven, ecological and ultra-efficient nature of the Blue Planet
32E catamaran. The video also showcases the innovative design and stunning
style that makes this recreational multihull vessel so unique. It is not
like any other catamaran.
"The boat looks beautiful and the video looks great," said Steve Trkla,
President of the North American division of Torqeedo. "We are excited to
partner with Blue Planet who has built a family cruising catamaran that is
first to market for larger boats running Torqeedo electric outboards."
Blue Planet Catamarans and Torqeedo are setting the environmental standard
for family cruising whether it be in open ocean or inland waterways. Both
companies are dedicated to respecting the environment and being leaders in
marine environmental technology that lowers boat emissions, increases
energy efficiency, and reduces waste to preserve our fragile ecosystem.
"The Blue Planet 32E is designed as an emissions free, "home away from
home" for weekend getaways on the water and longer journeys to destinations
100 miles away," says Blue Planet owner and designer, Gene Carletta. "It
features custom engineered, 32 foot semi-displacement hull forms, built
with lightweight composite foam throughout the boat. The semi-enclosed
spacious bridge deck creates a super stable sixteen foot beam. It is a very
versatile platform that is completely blue water capable. In addition to a
port side solar-powered Galley with sink, there is 6'1" of headroom inside
the hulls that can sleep a family of six with a shower/head/sink
conveniently located in each hull. This boat guarantees a quiet, graceful
and smooth riding journey by lake, river, or sea."
The Blue Planet 32E will be available for order in December 2010. For
