Pirate Com was working on some last year. I would also check out David and Clark. I have a wired system in mine and it works good to about 80mph then the headsets want to come off. Also get some wind noise in the system.
No protection like the canopy boats.

I don't know anything about them but I do not like push to talk systems. Voice activated or open mike work best when you have to have one hand on the stick and one on the wheel. In an open boat, using a noise cancel mike and a mike wind cover made for open cockpit planes work well or go with throat mikes.

If you have to have PTT then make sure you wire a button to the throttles or wheel so you don't have to take your hand off to operate the system.
