they are about 5ft by 15ft, and do about 70 MPH with a stock Cevy 350,,

although the boats riding 8 inches out of the water have about 600 HP engines their top speed is not much more than 100 MPH, their biggest factor to winning races is acceleration, and the ability for the driver to drive the boat well or to hold on

Intake aimed backwards -- headers aimed forward -- engine amidships . . .

Very interesting! V-drive or direct?

hoot,, no, it says it's a hydro, but it looks to me like a Flat Bottom,,

some call a Steped Flat Bottom a Hydro, but to me that boat looks like a Flat Bottom,,

true Stepped Flat Bottoms are not so popular any more..

Gimbal,, they are Direct Drive,,

you can buy a wood frame in the link,, look for a V-Drive called Hot Rod, I had a Hot Rod with a Chevy 396, it was a 90 MPH boat when I bought it..
