College watercraft project Jet Blade has three-ski design

The Jet Blade is a new and unique personal watercraft. The goal of Team 6 is to design a personal watercraft (PWC) that will provide the user with an unparalleled experience in water sports activities.

The Jet Blade is a single rider personal watercraft that is stable yet agile. The Jet Blade will incorporate a three-ski design that utilizes two skis in the front of the craft and one ski in the rear.

These skis are located in spaced relation below an aluminum hull and operate to hydro-dynamically lift the Jet Blade to a cruise position by relative water flow upon the undersides of the skis.
