Hardcore Performance Junkies — Meet Green Hulk

I’ll be the first to admit, I’m not much of a wrench. Sure, I can handle the basics on my own boats, but my skills will only take me so far, and I’m okay with that.

I’ll be the first to admit, I’m not much of a wrench. Sure, I can handle the basics on my own boats, but my skills will only take me so far, and I’m okay with that.

The same could be said for this blog. While I fully intend to cover some of the more popular performance packages out there, I’m not going to try to be the go-to spot for the hardcore performance enthusiast. Yes, I’d be faking it. But perhaps more to the point, someone is already doing it better.

Who, your inquiring mind may want to know? Jerry Gaddis at GreenHulk.net. What started as a hobby as Gaddis built up a bright-green Sea-Doo RXP 215 (his kids nicknamed it the “Green Hulk”) has now grown into the internet’s PWC performance behemoth, with forums on high-performance mods for every brand of PWC. Members help members, tech gurus weigh in, and in the end everybody goes faster. If you’re into speed, I highly recommend checking out the site.

Other must-see sites? Try PWCToday.com, a great all-around resource for personal watercraft enthusiasts, and Sea-Doo.net, a required site for Sea-Doo fans.
