Sea-Doo goes Hollywood with its Web site
Borrowing a page from BMW, the automaker that virtually created the idea of an online motion picture, Sea-Doo recently announced the launch of Sea-Doo Films, a Web site featuring a number of live-action features that, amidst the normal movie plot, highlight the thrills of, what else, Sea-Doo watercraft.
The first of the three films to be available on the site is Salty Dogs, billed as the tale of ex-Navy Seals thwarting an international crime ring.
And while we didn’t expect much from our first visit, the actual product turned out to be a pleasant surprise. Featuring movie-like production values, high-level stunts and yes, even a starring role by Hollywood heavyweight Eric Roberts (did they pay him in Doos?), Salty Dogs was downright entertaining, not to mention a great showcase for Sea-Doo product. It left us wondering just what — not to mention who — we can expect from incoming features, including Harbour Towne, “a day in the life of two families” and Hijacked, the “classic adventure pitting a regular guy against pirates.”
Somebody call Cannes.
Macsboost Adds Intercooler
Building upon the success of its electronic boost controller for Honda-turbocharged watercraft, Macsboost recently added an intercooler to the company product mix.
Macsboost recommends the Macsboost module as the first stage in a performance setup. The module is designed to work in conjunction with the intercooler.
