You can here the stereo on a speed boat, but you have no wind noise to contend with. You could always fit some speakers to the 'A'-frame (Wakeboard tower ones) and fit a sub in the console. You should here it then . Fusion do a range of marine subs and amps fusion

You might be able to hear it now, but, by the time you're 50, you'll be able to hear feck all.

Please bear in mind that I have a shitty old RIB and this is just to amuse myself whilst bombing around the Solent..

Was thinking of Ride (Cry??) of the Valkyries - Apocalypse now styleeeee...

I love the smell of 2 stroke in the morning!!!

Thats exactly what my friend and I were saying today while sitting in my (unfinished) RIB! Ride of the Valkyries - Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra.

Pookay, where are you from on the island and where abouts do you launch? I may have asked you this before

Live St Helens - but no swing moorings (despite calling in several favours) and could not afford the 140 per ft for a pontoon.

So ended up in Cowes on a walk on pontoon for less money... :-)

My boat lives outside (sometimes inside) Kevin Moles place..

Will have to fit one of those PA type speakers to the bow.... Scare the floating bridge bloke witless... LOL
