This Drag Boat Packing a Beastly V8 Engine Sounds Incredible



It's hard to get much more American than stuffing a massive V8 into a lightweight boat for some fun on the water. This boat in the above video is one of the most insane creations I've seen in a while. Just listen to this engine as the owner turns the ignition. There's not a doubt in my mind that he just woke up people from every single house in that subdivision.

He titles this video "4th of July" noise maker. I can't think of a more suitable name for this beast because it's probably the best toy you can have for the holiday. This boat has got to be capable of triple digit speeds out on the water! With it's open headers, he surely lets freedom ring with this one. And by ring, I mean your eardrums will likely be ringing for a week straight after the day is done.

The camshaft alone makes this boat sound exactly like a decked-out drag car. The way the idle lopes is music to V8 fans ears across the globe. After a little bit of adjustment, the real action starts when he hits the throttle and revs the engine up. Good lord does this thing absolutely scream! He holds nothing back and lets the engine hit some seriously high RPM. It literally looks like it wants to jump off that trailer.


Towards the very end of the video, you can hear a faint cheer the second the boat engine shuts off. It's very likely to have drawn a huge crowd on the street. I'd imagine it's kind of hard to just keep walking past this madness. When a boat appears intimidating without even being in the water, that's when you know you've created a true monster.

This guy is bound to be the life of the party at any 4th of July celebration he attends. I know for a fact I'd love to chat him up to get more information on his setup. Not only just talk, but I'd love to actually see this thing rip across the water in person! It's probably the most fun you could ever have on the water, so I applaud this guy for making it a reality and showing it to the world.
