What do they make them out of, breeze blocks?

A mate of Dad's, many years ago, was on about building a concrete boat. I think it was about 5 years before people stopped taking the p*** out of him, but maybe they do exist

I see why they all have 200+ HP on though....

Ah, so that's why my 8.5 Scorpion is so slow (42kts with a dodgy Evinrude Renegade prop)!

I'm trying a 21" pitch Revolution 4 prop tomorrow, so this comment might be a little premature.
