The Bridge to Nowhere jetboat at speed on the Whanganui River near Pipiriki. At New Zealand invention dating from the mid-1950s, the Hamilton jet engine is the propulsion unit used in jetboats around the world enabling them, in the absence of an external propellor, to operate in very shallow waters at speed. This jetboat operates from the small settlement of Pipiriki up the Whanganui River to the Mangapurua Landing which gives access to the unusual 'Bridge to Nowhere'.

Really funny to look at the faces, another way to have a shower. Crisp picture with a lot of dynamism!

I remember putting a Hamilton jet unit into a RIB we were building back in the 70s! This is a great action shot, really capturing the moment. And as CLODO has said, good fun looking at the expressions on their faces.
