My dad had a 16' fiberglass boat with a big Merc outboard on one of the larger WI lakes. 45mph was plenty fast enough for me on the water. The brakes on a boat suck and steering response isn't any better! LOL!

I'll just stick to cars. Gene

Those fast boats can mess you up. Last summer my neighbor broke his back going for a ride in a off shore boat on Tahoe. He is a fit 50 year old surfer. Tahoe has no speed limit so it is a popular place for fast boats.

Those BIGGIE ROLLERS can be hazardous.... but in calmer seas like Tahoe and Havasu can be a pucker factor toooo eek

I saw a cat out on Havasu almost BLOW OVER at way WAY over a 100mph !!

I bought it when my kids were younger so they couldn't fall over the sides when moving in the water, taught them to water ski and sold it when they grew up and moved out. up My wife and I both took a U.S. Coast Guard boat safety course for small boat owners before using it up scope

Or as a former boat owner told me, "A boat is a hole in the water you just keep throwing $100 bills into".

Just about anything goes. No old 2 strokes, and every boat/watercraft requires an inspection for invasive species.
There is a movement for noise restrictions. The lake front billionaires can be pretty persuasive.

Grand Prix Hydroplane excitement.

Jack Lupton and his team come from New Zealand to Canada with 3 GP boats to race Valleyfield which is the Indy 500 of Hydroplane racing.

My machinist buddy built him 2 engines out of the wreckage of 5 that they blew up that season so they could make the race at Valleyfield.

It was hauling the mail for sure!

If you read up on Haulover, you will learn that there are certain times of day when the tide and winds really make that inlet a wild ride. There are some videos where its smooth as glass too. I guess its all on timing. Still, there are certain boats I wouldn't be comfortable taking out there.
