Thinking of getting one of these for the tinny...

You read that right. 475HP supercharged.

It's an aftermarket upgrade from a stock 300HP from what I could gather. Even the steering rams had to be modified to control it (the stainless things you see attached to the motor)

Some of The bass boats in the comps I've done have the similar but less hp 250 Yamaha on them.
On full pelt the boat is hardly touching the water. Almost like a hovercraft....
