Lucky Kid Has His Very Own Gas-Powered Mini Ski Boat

This is one lucky kid. He not only has a pool to swim around in, but also has a mini Lewis ski boat his dad built for him. The boat is equipped with a petrol engine and gets around pretty well, as you are about to see. It would be interesting to see what kind of speeds this kid could get his awesome boat up to on a pond or lake. Until then, he’ll have to motor around in the safety of the pool.

A Mini Mini Ski Boat

There are actually a lot of mini ski boats out there, but they are much bigger than this one and have a more practical use. Technically we should probably call this a scale model boat because mini boats can be anywhere from about 8 to 15 feet long. There are small bullet boats that are very similar in design to this kid’s boat. One such bullet ski boat design is about 12 feet long and is powerful enough to tow a skier. You can build this boat on your own with plywood and put in a 35 or 40 horsepower engine and it will get the job done. Of course, you can also buy high-performance mini boats pre-made. A couple of the mini boat brands out there are Exhilarator and Twisted Liquid Marine.
