More Power! A Time and A Place For Everything...

When Too Much Power really is too much!

This speedboat has a supercharged, open exhaust big block fed by two four barrel carbs ..... which probably has more than 500hp to offerand could be over 1000 ........ the only problem ......... a little breeze and some surface chop means you can't even begin to use it.

Not to say that going 100 knots or better would not be fun to do ..... but .... this thing would barely turn around and got passed easily by my friend's ski boat .

The guys who were running it were giving rides to people from the campground for about 45 minutes....... this thing is louder than a freight train though and that had a few cottagers reaching for their phones to get the parks people to shut it down.
I suspect a couple were reaching for their firearms ...........

Sunday evening after supper on the Big Whiteshell! Wrong time Wrong place!

By the way - My friend's son was driving his ski and boat DID pass this thing doing about 50knots then drove circles around it ... with a 15 yr old girl riding a tube behind!

God I love that sound! I used to have a small block Dart with straight pipes. Cops loved me.

Yeah, time and a place for that, unfortunately those a few and far between.
