    Sounds like you have some PLANS man.

    What power source are you looking to?

    Might I suggest a HONDA engine? :)

    There's some badass boat here at the local car shop...

    It's got a B&M blown Chevy big block in it. I'll bet that thing tears ass around the pond...

    dude, honda makes some damn sexy o/b engines. get a little 170 ( :) ) outboard and it will go, then do a O/B Vtec conversion :p so it has a 8000 RPM redline, get a loud exhaust, and a wing for downforce. Possible some stickers so people know its fast ( plus the added HP), and of course, get some shinny 17" heavy ass wheels for the trailer.

    And listen to techno. Techno increases HP. It's scientifically proven. :ph34r:

    Sweet, good deal I hope to finish my boat if this 10 days of forecasted rain every breaks.
    Honda does make o/b engines but they are expensive. They are very smooth and quiet.
