Purchased a 18 foot (?????) speed boat a few weeks ago.....but I don't know why? It's yellow, seats 5, has no screw just a jet, engine is a 460 Ford......and it sits VERY LOW in the water. The wife and I made a run in it and if you can stand the noise, the rough ride, your teeth falling out, and a hard seat, it was a great time Wink Undecided Tongue Shocked🤑🤙🍋🏎📷🎎

Sounds like a flat bottom lake boat with a jet drive! They can be fun but please remember everyone else on the lake must listen to it also!

Be aware of folks maybe not appreciating the ride!!

I forget the terms but back in the day there was a way to run wet exhaust.
No clue as to performance impact but having lived on a lake for a good part of my life the wet exhaust was quieter and appreciated by everyone not in the boat!

Not trying to be “that guy” especially with a Harley and side pipes on Sharky.
I’ve ridden many a time in that style of boat. Even up to 75 mph wow what a thrill!

Just remember sound travels extremely well on water!

Ok, off my soapbox and immediately apologetic for bringing it up!


Let’s see some photos!
