Bombardier Seadoo

Bombardier Seadoo

I was looking for some information about PwC Seadoo cover and I found some very interesting facts about the history of Seadoo personal watercraft and in general. I'm a bit of a history buff so postpone seeking Seadoo cover and swallowed a little history lesson.

I always thought Seadoo were invented by late 1980 or early 1990. In a sense it is correct. The most modern and important developments in the area of personal watercraft happened after 1988. However, to limit their sense of history of that time does not give a proper perspective on the evolution of Seadoo.

In the mid-1960s, Canada's Bombardier family was busy doing the ever popular snowmobile Ski-Doo. The family began to revolve around the idea of a snowmobile who traveled in the water. He quickly became serious about this project and started doing some preliminary designs of various types of prototypes. After beating some drawbacks learned design an American banker turned inventor named Jacobsen who was playing with a similar design project.

Jacobsen was interested in motorcycles and his dream was to create a machine similar to a motorcycle traveling in the water. Bombardier Jacobsen joined forces. In short, Jacobsen had designed the first Seadoo. Bombardier bought the rights to Jacobsen, and added the signature yellow and black coloring of snowmobiles Ski-Doo famous. Bombardier also designed Seadoo and manufacture of yellow and black covers. Seadoo Bombardier produced these and offered to the market in 1968 and 1969.

The Seadoo Bombardier is limited by technology market time. The 1968 engine was air cooled. This posed a big problem as the town was not big enough to allow adequate air circulation. In 1969, the design was changed to allow a liquid cooled engine. This helped a bit there were other problems that separate. Most of these were sold Seadoo on the east coast and used in salt water. The salt corrodes everything. Jacobsen apparently had some ideas for improving the engine and reduce corrosion, but these ideas were not adopted by Bombardier family.

After a few false starts of the Bombardier family moth balled the idea Seadoo Modern day for the next 20 years. Jacobsen bought the rights to their ideas and joined Kawasaki. While Kawasaki, Jacobsen developed the first Jet-Ski. The history personal watercraft is colorful and interesting.

After Pearl Harbor America prepared to fight for its life. In mere weeks millions of civilians from farmers to bellhops were turned into battle-ready gunners commandos Seabees pilots and bombardiers. A cast of man's men including Pat O'Brien Randolph Scott and Robert Ryan headline this prime example of World War II filmmaking that works on many levels: as a flag waver an action picture and most memorably a taut procedural (featuring actual training camp filming) that follows would-be bombardiers through the perils camaraderie and conflict of training. Equipment fails controls jam men plunge to their deaths… and the bombardiers soar on to face explosive soul-testing action in the Pacific.A major moneymaker for RKO Radio Bombardier stars Pat O'Brien and Randolph Scott as trainers at a school for bomber pilots. O'Brien and Scott argue over teaching methods while their students vie for the affections of Anne Shirley. O'Brien's methods prove sound during a bombing raid over Tokyo. Scott and his crew are captured and tortured by the Japanese but the mortally wounded Scott manages to set fire to a gas truck providing a perfect target for his fellow bombardiers. Stylistically Bombardier is one of the most schizophrenic of war films with moments of subtle poignancy (the death of trainee Eddie Albert) alternating with scenes of ludicrous "Yellow Peril" melodrama (the Japanese literally hiss through their teeth as they torture the helpless Americans). Though it can't help but seem dated today Bombardier remains an entertaining propaganda effort (the film is sometimes erroneously listed as the debut of Robert Ryan who'd actually been appearing before the cameras since 1940). - Hal Erickson Rovi.Genre: Miscellaneous.Release Date: 28 June 2011.
