  • A Strange Water Bug – Middle River, Fort Lauderdale – Florida

    A boring March day at the Middle River anchorage, Ft Lauderdale; nothing going on. Oh, wait! There was this guy came by hovered and waved… Hummm, looks like fun.

    In answer to a query to the cruising community about just what are seeing here, we received multiple responses:

    It’s Zainojet! They are a rental company in Miami, Ft. Lauderdale and soon Orlando that rent these pretty amazing devices. They had a pontoon support boat and a jetski chase boat and were providing instruction to new flyers when they came by our anchorage. In the photo you can see the red pump that is free floating, the “flyer” drags the unit behind. They spent four or five hours in the middle river the day we saw them.
    Their website has more information, including pricing (ouch!) http://www.zainojet.com

    By now you must have dozens of responses about how the strange “Bug” operates. It was widely publicized in the boating press and on TV about a year ago. A powerful pump either on a float or onshore supplies water at high pressure through a long hose, visible in the picture, to a pair of nozzles attached to a harness strapped to the operator. The operator manipulates the intensity and direction of the jets to control his flight. Sort of like the James Bond “flying belt” of 30 years ago except that the water jet has a flight duration much
    longer than the 15 seconds of the “flying belt.” Obviously the flight path is limited by the length of the hose. It’s just for fun. Not commuting.

    There is a pump that remains in the water – you can see it at the bottom of the picture to the left of the vertical hose.
    The pumps continuously supplies high pressure water up the flexible hose to provide the “lift”.
    Just saw one in Harbour Island, Bahamas a week ago.

    It will give you pause for sure!
    I came up on deck there one December morning in 2007 to get underway and came face to face with your a similar sight.
    We went back below and had another cup of coffee!

  • Twin Dolphins in the Wake

    We were coming back from Egmont Key last Summer and these two (mother and sibling) came up at just the moment that I was pointing my camera, as we knew they were playing in our wake. I have sent this photo to many friends and fellow boaters and they love it..
    Enjoy.
