    Yes, My first boat was a 18' jet boat with 460 ford and powershot nos. We had a great time in it! I still have 21 tunnel hull that is a lot better than the jet was as far as ride goes. Due to problems with my lower back it only used in inland waters. Offshore stuff requires the larger hole in the water!!! Bob

    My first Hi-Powerboat was a Aqua-Craft flat bottom V-drive, it had a 389 Pontiac motor with 428 Super-Duty heads and 2 four barrell carbs, I traded a Harley Sportster for it when I was 19, I thought I was hot **** with that boat!.......Fred

    I startred with an18 foot wriedt stinger with a 455 olds. I drove that around for a couple of years and traded up to a brand new 1978 stinger with a 454. That boat went through constant upgrades utill I sold it 2 years ago. It is still here on the Kankakee River maintaining it`s spot on the sand bar and it`s place in Kankakee River Hot Boat History.

    My first boat was a 15 foot hydrostream with a 1500xs Tower of Power I hope to maybe buy that boat back. The new owner blew up the engine and is to stupid to get the new one going again

    Put your best foot forward!
