    not bad for a chainsaw

    I agree 90km/h is pretty achievable

    Mine LS powered boat ended up at teh bottom of a lake few motnhs ago now, but have put some hours on since so no what a good boat is capable of,

    Did you buy it sunk, or did you sink it?

    YouTube video of our old steel hull getting sunk in the Motu before we bought it. Orange thing with a confederate flag on the nose.

    Very rarely does speed solve your problems in a Jetboat, generally makes them worse
