    I'm not a big jetski fan (although if everything goes right we should have a couple
    here this week), but that's a pretty cool looking machine.

    I always liked this James Bond looking thing too.

    If im not mistaken this is a FazeII, the fazer (FazeI) was out in i think 85' but never released to the public and then in 87' from what i know...the FazeII was introduced and flopped! we had a family friend that bought a new one and ran it around Havasu, it had a problem taking on water, but was fun as hell when it ran right, owning a tunnel now and understanding the feeling of a tunnel, this Faze II was a blast as a kid!

    Whats going on with this boat???

    Back in a old 90's HB ad they had one those picklefork jetski's. I think it had a 4 banger with fuel injct, shot of nos.It was 11 or 12' long. They did a few passes hit 90mph. I'm sure someone here has that issue.

    yep that phase 3 is just like mine i think your right it is a faze 2 , i think the main problem with the beast was it cavitated the pump alot i had to do alot of mods to it to ever get it to run correctly, just like a big picklefork if you tip the nose at 40 you were going to get thrown but they ran on the water great if there was smooth water it was smooth if it was rough you were dead , i think ill get on the paint this weekend have all the parts rounded up now so ill post a few pics as i go
