Miss the boating season yet? Well it is springtime in New Zealand and the rivers are flowing. Let's ride along on the South Island...

Must have some tough hulls!
Beauty is as beauty does.
If it works good, it's beautiful.
Yeah, there are some good how-to videos on how to weld up a sturdy aluminum hull and make your own. Some of these homebuilts are barely 2 meters long, smaller than modern jet skis.
Just had to turn down that yap a crap music and the video was way better.
Damn I'm getting old.
That was intense. Of course "Boating Fails 2016" is one of the next video's up at the end. Had to watch that as well. Ouch.
When any video's native soundtrack bugs me I turn it down like Smitty, then open another window and select a good song another source and resume watching the video only with a dub-over playing in the background.
I've heard replacing my ride video music with bagpipes is gaining favor.
These Wee Jet Boats with screaming motorcycle engines aren't nearly as melodious as the big block V-8s one sees here in the states, like competing the Salmon River around Riggens,ID. Know some of you have raced, wrenched, built or crewed on those beasts. Think our IdahoLarry used to build and race these guys.
Hear is some sweet V8 noise, turn up volume.

I wouldn't trust my welds that much... (though to be fair I can't weld anyway )
Those little boats look like a real whoop.
I'm impressed by wee boats on steep creeks.
