Hope the jet skier is wearing a wet suit - it looks like its still cold. Love the hare, they are so cute! Do they keep the white points on the ears all summer, or is that one still in the process of changing coat color?

He's running a snowmobile..designed for the snow... in the water, rather than a jet ski designed for water....hence the name...Actic jet Ski...eh Ira....LOL.

I understand that this can be done if you build up a big head of steam....but if you're not going fast enough...down into the drink you go...with attendant danger to both man and machine.

Great pictures.

I hope that water isn't very deep.

Here in northern New England we had a tragic death this past spring with someone using a snowmobile as a jet ski. A guy was skimming across some open water on a nearby river when he lost momentum and sank. The river's current pulled him under the ice, and his body was found several days later, quite a distance downstream from where he had gone in the water.
