100mph Pontoon boat
Written by Dave Mercer on September 24, 2010
What we here at the Facts of Fishing Headquarters want to know is how does it perform in rough water and does it have a livewell? Considering a quick bass boat is 75-80mph, this pontoon boat is floating! Always remember your kill switch, life jacket and HELMET!
from Bass Parade.com:
Recently Ken Gouty of Antioch, IL set the world record speed in a pontoon boat: 100 mph, at a recent Lake of the Ozarks (party barge) Shootout last week.
His boat: a 27-foot PlayCraft powered by a 1,200 hp supercharged engine built by Skunkworks Performance Marine. Gouty described the engine as being 540 cubic inches with a quad rotor, or “two blowers on it,” which forces air into the engine like a drag racer.
