US Navy SEALs' modified jetski revealed
A photo published by the US Navy shows the heavily modified YAMAHA 2016 FX CRUISER SHO jetski. A regular commercially acquired jetski has been modified with an inflatable collar similar to Rigid Inflatable Boats (RIBs), and it is towing a platform with grab-handles for gear, divers and casualties.


The photo was taken by Staff Sgt. Henry Gundacker on 20th October 2017 during a training exercise in Crete, Greece. HERE
