You can't beat the sound of a V8 though. Some of those mini's look like fun as well.

The weather was nice enough yesterday to finally get the boat out for a run. I changed the rear impeller over the winter and now I'm running a 22 pitch and 24 pitch and the boat really likes that combination. The water temp was probably in the upper 30's so it was a little painful get the boat off and on the trailer since I had to wade in knee deep. And it was a little brisk on the water doing 60-70 mph. :shock: :mrgreen:

What a cool boat!

How shallow can you run it?

If you keep moving at speed, I've run through 3" of water and clipped a small rock with no damage. When you come off plane, it drops down and needs a good 15-18" of water.
