LOL They're about a year late, par for the course. I'm sure they've got one crated up ready to ship somewhere.  :D

I didnít even bother to reply to Marie to see if I still wanted to confirm my reservation.
I doesnít matter anyway, the weight limit is crazy low! 200 lbs I think.

First pics have started coming in.... Each new model has had design changes that blocked my products in some way shape or form, or with that intent. So here's the back end of the 2.0 in all it's glory.... Won't be putting a pump guard on this one, and it needs one even more than before. Pump is now even with the bottom of the hull and even more likely to hit, especially with the low riding stern due to the increase in weight the pump is now the lowest part in the water and the first thing that will hit... The new two piece pump housing further blocks the addition of a pump guard. And they STILL are using a platic steering nozzle??? Just wow.... I can only imagine how screwed up the rest of this boat is going to be. Not going to give any details about who's 2.0 this is, but just to sum up the report the owner is not a happy camper with what he got.

Yikes! Can you imagine if I waited for the new one, and never bought the one I have?
I bounced over a couple rocks Saturday that would have DESTROYED that pump!

Yup.. This is what happens when a company refuses to stay in touch with reality and insists on what they say will work on paper is the way to go. I literally do not understand why they would do this other than either targeting a customer base that would use this in deep debris free water only, blocking my guard from fitting, or simply refusing to believe the pump is at risk. They like showing advertising video of their boats going up rapids, and with the wide open engine hood with air intake and muffler right out in the open spells major issues in my experience... This boat is going to sit deeper in the water now, and the previous model already had issues with water crashing over the hood during turns etc... This is going to be even worse. What a mess. I can't help but feel sorry for anyone who bought one of these. I see major issues that Mokai was dilligent in ensuring nothing could be done to overcome them. At least they finally got smart and admitted my clutch was good by stealing the idea.  :))

more pictures please and excited to hear the speed.. Is it really fast?
I don't go to places with rocks or water lower than 2 ft so i'm fine with that pump's new location.. I know that will not work for others. Will be waiting for videos...Yes, I'll be opening this forum everyday again..

Maybe they kept the plastic nozzle so it breaks when you hit a rock. If its metal then it wont break and put all the stress in the entire housing up to where it bolted..Its a sacrificial component.

I would prefer a smarter design that would eliminate anything breaking as an acceptable scenario. Jet ski's use ride plates, the pump is protected. The Mokai isn't a deep water speedboat, it's capable of running in much shallower conditions and going to encounter obstacles. If I'm out playing hard I want to know the boat was built to last, not designed to break.  :D

More pics today. Drive belt looks mighty anemic, weak link for sure. Wonder how well that steering actuator will handle the heat in the long run, would be curious what it's operating specs are. Looks like the flotation area that used to be behind the seat is now the fuel tank. I bet that motor and gear box weigh in close to 100 lbs!  :-O

looks like we can now break open the pump for maintenance. So now it will be ok to use this in saltwater as we can now clean the inside of the pump anytime we feel doing it. And i hope we can easily replace the motor and transfer all mokai added parts to it so if corrosion started to show up , go buy and swap a new motor.

There isn't any routine maintenance you could do with the two piece pump that you couldn't do with the one piece pump. The two piece version just makes it easier to assemble, rebuild, or repair damaged cone screw threads should the need arise. Should the tail section get damaged by a rock strike, there would be the advantage of only needing to swap in a new one. Still think it would have made more sense to prevent damage with more protection instead of making it easier to replace parts after getting damaged. But why would Mokai want to build something that's tough enough to take some abuse, better for their pocket if you keep buying replacement parts..  :-X

Thanks Tom

For this so many changes and many unanswered questions, a non mechanic customer like me can only take the risks if there's a long warranty period or if i have a bad memory that i can quickly forget the 6k  :-X
