There are a couple of boats around here with those motors...I hate how they sound almost as much as cigarette boats.

Why the hell is that even a thing? I guess the only answer is because it can be done. How often would you ever get to open that thing up?!

That thing must really fly. It was kept in a hanger, after all.

They still produce this boat with the rubber flaps on the sides to drain the cockpit. W/triples and no one standing in the back the flaps are below the water line taking on water, a good way to sink the boat when the batteries go dead. A poor choice w/trips don't care how fast it can go then again it's a way to let the water back out. lol

Nice, yes. But way overprices for a 14 year old hull that clearly could use some freshening up.


I don't know the market on these but um guessing its about 20K over ..
