I'm sorry, but if it really costs $250 it won't "Fly" in Manteo. Very special, it's not a family activity! A very limited few can afford it. I really believe the bigger buck vacationers are up in Corolla. Although centrally located in Manteo, I would think a Duck location would get more business. However in my opinion Duck would not favor it. Don't know. Just my opinion.

This is wonderful news for Nags Head, WHAT fun! I can just see my nephews making reservations. I will make sure that at 52 I will also be in line! The cost is reasonable if you check it out in the Keys! This is what a vacation is all about...what a Memory to say that "Yes" I did this and it was worth every penny! My only worry is that they will be booked up for the summer season...so I'm making mine ASAP! Thanks OBX Jetpak, another plus to our Outer banks vacation!

A: The jetpack itself has no engine and no moving parts other than the articulated thrust assembly. There is a small nozzle hiss, and the water jets do make splashing sounds when they enter the water. The boat unit has better sound insulation than a standard personal watercraft, and uses a four stroke engine with noise abatement systems. The Jetpak is generally quieter than a comparable personal watercraft.
A: Even if you fall from the maximum height of 30 feet , you will be entering the water at less than 30 mph, and all body parts will be slowing down together gradually by drag from the water. You will be
protected by the saddle,helmet, back rest, body harness, PFD, and other protective equipment. Water skiing is more dangerous Hundreds of times each year, thousands of platform divers jump from 10 m, or 33 feet, with no protective equipment, and few
serious injuries occur.

A. I have a 32ft pontoon boat called Launch Pad we take you out to a safe location
IN Manteo the town has sky diving and five Para-sailers that take you up to 1200 feet in the air -i would think OBXjetpak is much safer then this...its a RUSH and so far very safe !!!!

You can Read more about the OBXjetpak on my web site thank you

ITS COMING TO MANTEO!!!!!!
Will be here in April !!!

OBXjetpak



Can't wait to be out on the jet ski and see that thing out there, it has the same size motor my jet ski has too - 225 hp. Banana



Probably gonna attract the same kind of shoreline erosion attention from enviromentalist that wave runners do. You know the drill: Idle speed within 100 yards of shoreline, blah, blah, blah.




I have heard many negative comments about jet skis, but shoreline erosion was never one of them I've ever heard mentioned before. The restrictions here on being near the shore are for safety and noise abatement reasons, not erosion. Jet skis produce very little waves or wakes behind them compared to anything else. They displace a small amount of water.

I'm all for new things and I hope it succeeds, although $250 is more than I would be willing to pay for the experience.

I just have to add that registering and posting as someone else to show fake support for your business is lame in my opinion. *waves* at 'janet' & 'sport'

Good luck with your endeavor.

WHAT DOES THE JERRSEY SHORE HAVE TO DO WITH JET LEV?



The jersey shore is filled with tons of hokie activities. IMO it's just another activity to clog up the sound with.

AGREED! AND MORE NOISE!

I go sailing on the sound right in front of Manteo and I think there is plenty room for everyone

I believe I said it was lame to make up fake personalities to promote your business. Apparently some of you can't read? I agree that it is ridiculous that I have to reincarnate to ask about things I am interested in because my other names are censored simply because I disagree with the majority of posters on this board about some things...but that's on Will, not me. smiley Also, Shooter if you are uninterested in what I have to say I'd thank you to stay off of my Facebook.

I think this thing sounds neat! Good Luck with your new biz! I don't understand the negative attitudes towards a new business. Everybody deserves a chance and there's plenty of room for all of us.

Personally I think it is neat I have no stick in the issue either way just pointed out that the environmentalist aspect would be the easyest way to shoot it down if someone so wanted to raise the issue. I wish him well in his buisness endeavour.

There is an unfriend button available for all users...I am curious as to why you haven't used it? Also please don't act as if my comments about showering fake praise on your own business is in any way equal to my having to register a new name to post here because a lot of you can't deal with my opinions. I have no problem with being disliked...I don't suffer bs well and since a lot of people are full of a lot of bs I have a tendency to ruffle some feathers, but I do have a problem with people saying false things about me.

I think this thread has run its course and I am going to lock it up. I haven't had to ban anyone in a long time and I hope we can keep that streak intact.

Cheers,
Will
