Gotta be the first one to the party cove.

That is crazy HP for a pontoon and not sure of the point of a 600 HP pontoon. But I am also the last person that would say that you don't need a point for more HP. More power is always better.

I've also seen pontoons with Merc Racing 525's and 600's in them. You wouldn't catch me trying to drive a pontoon 85+mph though.

Who had that video of the over powered pontoon catching too much air under the deck and going airborne! Somethings just don't make sense.

Years ago a friend of mine had a toon custom built with two 2.5 litre 265hp mercs it did almost eighty but kept tearing the pontoons loose from the deck. Hell of a sight though seeing a boat like that blowing a monster rooster tail

there is a boat show in Austin this coming weekend ... I got a card in the mail that if I brought it in, I would get a "free" Nautique T-shirt (at least for the first 100 cards presented). I immediately thought of ya'll here on TT and the MCOCD came out in me ... will be interesting to see if I can get one and what I can do to it to amuse ya'll

I asked my wife if she would like to go to the boat show and handed her the card. She said yeah, that would be fun & stuck it on a fridge magnet!!! The next day she said hey, I just noticed the card wasn't for a MC t-shirt??? ... I said "hey, I can always use a "free" t-shirt to do yard work in" ... she laughed
