14 minutes into a 3 hour ride I was adjusting my seat post and the clamp exploded.

I was able to take someone’s truck back to my car and then I backed over my wheel.

The seat post clamp may be covered under warranty but I’m going to have to buy a new front wheel and brake rotor. My guess is it will be close to $300-350 for the wheel.

Since the ride was cut short we took the work boat out on the lake for about an hour to make sure it’s running well. We are taking it to lake pond d’ore next week to do some hazmat spill response training. The 150 jet seems to do about 30 mph and gets up on plane pretty quick.
