The new Jetbike captured a lot of attention. It won the BWI Innovation Award in the boat category. Aquajet eliminates the saftey problem of steering loss when backing off the throttle. The patented dual steering system links a jet nozzle with a front ski. They promoted it as a motorcycle on water.

Genmar recieved one of the coveted BWI Innovation Awards (Manufacturing Process category) for their new VEC hull forming process. A VEC formed hull was prominently vertically displayed in their booth and their press kit had some nice CD images of the process.


Zach McClendon, founder and owner of Sea Ark, stayed in my hotel and we shared a couple breakfasts together. His press kit had this nice photo of their Extreme 186 Bass Boat incorporating a patented aluminum hull design with unique strakes and a high-tech pad design to provide "a fast, smooth ride while burning less fuel."

Most of their press kit images show several people in the boat and activity on the water or in the boat. This makes the photos a lot more interesting. This model has an overhead rack storage for kneeboards.
