Wow its looks really great ! but then the motor feels bigger to the boat, not that proportionate, or is it because I am used to seeing small honda engines. How much power have you got in the tap ?

Thanks everyone, I've been into fast boats for as long as I can remember. The engine is a 2.5 liter V6, fuel injected, 325+ hp. The boat is an X-Stream V-King, 18 feet, very lightweight. I have taken it up to about 95 mph, but it should top out at 115 mph or so. Here's one more pic.

Good eye there. I have this posted in another section here, but I don't mind posting it again. The Mustang is my daily driver, along with the truck.

Wow bro now if only you had a plane, it would complete the garage
Love the variety in the garage of yours. Something for every mood and occasion.
What truck is that? Could you please post some pics ?

How do you measure the speed? GPS?

What is the fuel?

At higher speeds, with more than 4/5th of the hull above water, stability is affected with even minor waves/ripples in water, right? How do you manage avoiding waves?

The wake generated would travel to the shore of the lake / water body, right? Anybody complains about the waves?
