    And it looks like a freestyle based hull with a short pole. I wouldnt be able to ride the thing for more than 5 min at a time with my back. No thanks!

    that is a good chunk of its battery life, so you could spread your 5 minute rides out over the afternoon and the battery would last!

    I applaud the concept and the use of advanced technologies. It's not for me right now but I'm glad somebody is working on a machine for the future.

    i think you have to understand new technology to know that battery's and electronics are more resilient to water intrusion than they have been in the past , a good example is remote control cars ,planes ,boats , etc you can pretty much run them under water and not have to stress about water affecting the circuitry , i would guess the designers of the electric ski would have gone to a lot of effort to ensure that every thing is 100% water tight like a fishes arshole or if not watertight water wont affect its reliability !

    Yes, I wrote that hyperbolic comment to find out more (elicit a response) about the built-in safeguards against electric shock and water intrusion that this new electric ski has.

    I have great respect and admiration for the incredible effort, time and money (sweat, blood and tears) it took to produce this nice work of engineering.

    Since I'm not an Electrician nor an Electrical Engineer, I was curious about the possible stray current in case of flooding.

    I suppose that the Motor Bay is hermetic since no fresh air is needed? Motor is Liquid cooled: Closed or Open Loop?

    Assume it has Fuses; what about Motor and/or Battery overheat detection? Lithium-based Battery?

    More details on their web page would be nice.
