If You're Thinking 'That's Crazy...An Inflatable Boat That Attaches To The Nose Of A Jet Ski!?' You Would Be Right! However, Upon Greater Thought And Inspection, The Brilliance And Utility Of This JetXtender Becomes Apparent. We Tested The JetXtender For Performance, Quality, Utility, Portability And Fun, And We Can Say That It Passed Those Tests With Flying Colors.
As Far As Speeds and Maneuvering Are Concerned, The JetXtender Is Highly Maneuverable At Low, And Its Max Tested Speeds Of Around 30 kts. Ride Was Very Predictable, And We Can Confirm The Design Is Solid.
The Construction And Quality Are Top Notch. These Are Manufactured In Europe To Very High Quality Standards, And It Definitely Reflects - Welded Seam Construction, Multiple Chambers, High Quality Components All Cleanly And Properly Secured In Place, And Exactly Where They Should Be. The Connecting Hardware is Stainless With Nylon Straps, And After Initial Dry Fitting, Hook-Up And Disconnect Was A Breeze.
The Portability Was Beyond Our Expectation. The JetXtender Comes In A Canvas Gear Bag Which Was Easy To Handle, and Weighs Only 77 lbs. We Used A Typical High Volume 120 Volt Inflator, And Inflation Of All Four Chambers Took Less Than 7 Minutes. It Fits Easily In Your Trunk, Lazarette, Gear Locker, Tender Garage, Or Can Be Secured To The Seat Of A Jet Ski In Water, Or Stowed With Your Jet Ski While Secured On Deck On Chocks.
Utility Of The JetXtender Was Impressive, It Functions Wonderfully As A Tender For Cruisers Who Have Jet Skis Only Aboard, It Safely And Comfortably Shuttles People And Gear Back And Forth From Any Landing Site e.g. Beach, Boat, Dock etc., And Allows Shallow Water Exploring Without Worrying About Prop Damage. It Was Tested For Up To Eight People To Prove Capability, However, With Four People Aboard, And One Or Two People On The Jet Ski Proved To Be A Superior Mode Of Transportation, And Also Felt Comfortable And Safe. If You Just Need A Tender, Or Want To Cruise Rivers, Canals, Lakes, The JetXtender Delivers.
Considering How Well The JetXtender Performs, We Absolutely Love And Recommend It As A Meaningful And Very Cool Accessory For Your Jet Ski.
