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.
