I'd bet that was at least 110, vdrives with decent power have no trouble getting to 120+. The driver was doing a good job of keeping the boat level.

Being a passenger in a fast vdrive or jet is a hair raising experience. If you are lucky you have one handle and the side/bottom of the seat to hang on. I have always driven and the driver has the steering wheel and foot braces a lot to keep your mind busy. A ride in the passenger seat a couple of weeks ago really opened my eyes to the sheer speed and terror that the exposed passenger seating delivers

I must say though, shame on them for not wearing ballistic jackets or at least poker run jackets.

Great video otherwise.

WOW!!

I get a big enough rush going 100 out in the ocean in a 39' boat... Now going 100+ in a 21' boat in some semi boat chop I would probably have a heart attack!!

low hundies w/1300 hp in a boat that weighs maybe 4k and sitting a foot and half off the water? That's a ride!! You can almost feel the pull on that thing in that video.

Looked like the passenger said "I shiit my shorts", and the drive said "I knew you would"

I half expected to see the passenger go flying up in the air like an ejection seat.

Can't say I'd feel much at ease if I were the driver of the last 2-3 boats he passed But great driving

Tank, I don't care that you borrowed the video for here.. We make them for everyone to enjoy (offshore guys / river guys etc..) . Feel free to post up any other videos if you feel they are worthy.

I watch a lot of offshore vids, even though I don't do a lot of offshore boating is what i'm saying..

Nice site.
