and as i stated,no offense to you,but,you obviously have never had any dealings with jeti motors. they are not very high rpm(max is 15,000) and they turn a large prop,with out insane amp load. the boat is not the most fun thing in the world to drive,it is extremely overpowered for the drag coefficie...
