I imagine it would. I know it's a lot of fun on our little 18' bow-rider when we can get her out on the lake on calm water and go WOT. Going 40 kts is fun

I wouldn't be interested in more than about one ride, just to experience it, in the boat under discussion, tho. They're too damn noisy. Out on Lake St. Clair you can hear them half way across the damn lake when they're running full out. Even just idling down the canals, creeks and rivers they're annoyingly loud.
