Boat has a 6.2 liter injected Chevy Vortex MerCruiser power package and outdrive with those two counter rotating props. I believe it's the MerCruiser Bravo 3 drive.

I had a boat. I found it easier and much less frustrating to just open a window and toss my money out.

I would like to get a small motor boat to fish on though sometimes. Then I remember...That fateful day of the FTF boat trip..The hoooror...oooooh the horror!!!

That was my thinking if I ever get a boat again.

I'be got a wave runner as well. I pull it behind our travel trailer when we take it. I love being out on the lake.

Is there a difference between a wave runner and a jet ski? Are they just brands for the same device or are they actually different "toys?"
