My job requres I test PWC's and Jet Boats. The PWC's are a lot like a dirt bike, at least at speed in a chop like we ususlly have in Tampa Bay. I enjoy them but they wear me out faster than my dirt bike! The stand-up's are the most fun but I can only ride one of 'em for about 10 minutes before I'm done. The Jet Boats can be a blast, they handle like a sports car and they look really sexy.

But every time I would get out on the water I'd start thinking about sailing and how much I enjoyed maxing out at 6 kts, beer in one hand and tiller in the other. So, I passed on quite a few good deals on Jet Boats we sell and got back into sailing.

So far, no regrets.
