You can bet it will get significantly louder when you add some juice. The prop cutting the air will be far louder than the engine

Now you got me to thinkin.....

My son raced an alcohol cart, with a 5 HP based block, Blue Wazoom motor that made 13 HP stock...but it wasn't stock. I wonder if the lighter motor, turning higher RPM would push that boat any differently than your heavier 22 HP motor?

It looks like it might be a little shaky with that motor up that high ... this definitely screams Dale Moser!

On air boats you want low end torque at least on a real size air boat.

It's been too dang hot. I work outside all day and the last thing I want to do is go work in a 110* shop. We'll get back after it shortly. Ronnie had to take some time off to build a storage shed also. But the tuna steaks are good.
