    Propane powered ski ?

    Does anybody know if a Propane powered ski has ever been built ? Or modified to run on propane ?

    Propane runs much cleaner than gasoline and the engine would last much longer.

    The refueling would be a little more tricky though.

    It takes a big man to admit when he's wrong. I am not a big man.

    Re: Propane powered ski ?

    Actually I was driving a fork lift earlier today when I thought about whether or not anybody has ever tried it.

    I did the same thing a year or so ago when asked if Harley Davidson had ever made a jetski.
    I came across these pictures of a guy that took a Yamaha vx hull and popped a 1200 V twin mounted sideways in the frame with above water exhaust . With custom made water cooled heads on it. I didn't think I'd ever see that one coming. But somebody tried it.

    Actually if you put side burners on your ski you could grill a burger while riding .

    Just make a really strong hook for that spatula...
