Many bowriders feature a small, round metal attachment on the back on the boat, also called a transom tow eye. Another option is an elevated watersports tower positioning the towrope higher off the water and providing additional rack space for skis and boards.
Since our boats have essentially jet-ski engines, how hard would it be to put one inside each pontoon? Each pontoon would have an intake grate on the bottom and a jet nozzle out the back. If I were more of a welder/fabricator (I'm not) I would sure be tempted to try it.
Not anymore! The answer lies in the Sealver jet ski boats which are being brought into Australia by the aptly named Jet Ski Boats Australia. Sealver is a French company based near Bordeaux that, in conjunction with Yamaha Motor Europe, conceived the concept of a boat hull that can accommodate a PWCs. The idea is relatively simple.
The Quadski is the world's first sports amphibian. The Quadski reaches speeds of 45mph on both water and land and transitions between them in seconds. At the press of a button the Quadski's wheels deploy when approaching land and retract after entering the water.
Monohull — Most boats have a single hull with a pointed bow and a flat transom stern. The bottom of a monohull may be flat, round, or V-shaped. Multihull — These boats have two or more hulls joined by a bridge deck or other structure. Twin-hulled boats are called catamarans, while those with three hulls are trimarans.

Keel: The centerline, or spine, of a boat. The sharper the keel’s angle (deadrise), the softer the ride — though sometimes at a cost in speed. This is precisely why the Kawasaki Ultra doesn’t wield the highest top speed but fares so well in rough conditions, and why Yamaha’s FX (over the FZ models) have been registering such high top speeds.
Mast Configuration and Sails Catboat (one mast, one sail) Cat A cat rig has only one sail, and the mast is located well forward. This is a popular rig on smaller boats, which are known as "catboats."

Sea-Doo Spark. Pro: Low top speed Con: Tight, responsive handling. Packed with Pep: When the economy tanked, jet skis were one of the first things to fall by the wayside since they are pure luxury devices. Rather than allow this downturn to injure them, Sea-Doo constructed the Spark.
Yamaha Waverunner SuperJet. Pro: Comfortable, ergonomic handlebars Con: Stand-up model. Standing O: The stand-up jet ski is a dying breed. They’re too hard to ride, too difficult to control, and have an annoying learning curve that keeps the average rider from getting the most out of them.
