After talking to the jet skiers we went down to the harbor to look at their rigs.
|Here's the jet skis and Mike Livingston for scale.|
|Due to the general unavailability of gasoline en route, each ski had six extra 5 gallon tanks.|
So OK, it's a stunt of sorts to travel from Seattle to Nome by jet ski. For one thing, there aren't enough places to get gas. At one point, these guys had to get gas flown in to them, but other than that, doing the trip by jet ski isn't much different than traveling somewhere by motorcycle.
So does this mean that we will now start seeing jet skis being used for long trips along our coasts, or to cross to Hawaii from LA? Who knows. It is possible no doubt long as you can get someone to bring them gas.
