Buying a Jet Ski

There are many great books on jet skis available. Paul R. Josephson’s Motorized Obsessions, published by JHU Press, is an excellent source for information. Vasilis Moraitis’s The Jet Ski: A History (JHU Press) offers a detailed look at the history of the sport, including the development of the modern jet-ski. A well-written book on the history of the jet-ski is a must-read for any enthusiast of the sport.

For example, a jet ski made for freshwater will corrode more quickly than a jet-ski made for saltwater. Choose one with closed loop cooling systems, which use water to cool the engine, rather than one that allows water to run through the engine. Metal corrodes rapidly if exposed to salt or water. read more
