NY reporters are saying the boat was doing 150mph

Anyone know a boat in LI that can carry 7 people and capable of doing 150 mph?

No the video said the boat was going so fast that it went 150 feet into the marsh, not that it was doing 150 MPH...big difference.
Going 150 feet into the marsh is very believable, probably a little under estimated.
