Mike Pagliccia says he rode for 624 miles about a Sea-Doo GTI 130 from 7 a.m. on Friday, Nov. 7 to 7 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 8. The trip saw Pagliccia travel up and down Florida’s Gulf Coast, as far north as the Caladesi Island State Park and as far south as Naples.
If Pagliccia’s record run is verified, it would eclipse Croatian Davor Hundic’s mark of 604.6 miles. Pagliccia will be sending a videotape and notarized GPS coordinates to the Guinness Book of World Records in order to have the record certified.
According to Pagliccia he could have gone as far as 800 miles were it not for some mechanical problems. It seems a water bottle got sucked into his craft’s intake when he stopped to get fuel and it took almost two hours to remove.
