"The only thing new in the world is the history you haven't read."

by American Watercraft Association

We love history at the AWA, and more often than not we find ourselves reminded of President Truman's saying. In the past, we've re-published early articles from magazines highlighting the first of their kind mass produced personal watercraft - many still evolving today. 

But like all riders, we can't help looking back at the very early craft and be amazed at the innovative and dynamic thought going into our particular boating community early on. Our friends at K-38 retain some of the best collections of data and information on personal watercraft we've ever seen. We hope you enjoy these pages as much as we do.
