    Default Jet Boats in Movies

    Howdy,

    I think I have seen such a thread in the HotBoat forum years ago, but cannot remember any movies listed.

    Please list any mainstream or B movies featuring jet boats. Kind of movies like Vanishing Point, Gone in 60 Seconds, Bullitt, etc but highlighting a bad ass jet boat or even v-drive?

    Or maybe even just a quick scene of a HotBoat?

    So Far...

    I'll start.

    1. Great outdoors with John Candy and Dan Akroyd. Scene where Akroyd's character rents a "jetboat" which is really a v-drive.

    Southwind has a 20' cruiser in an episode of the six millon dollar man. He put A pipe through the bottom out near the queen mary in the episode. And, they really did...lol no smoke and mirrors back then in the 70's

    It looks like the blower pulley is not turning either while the water is coming out. I hope they didn't fill the engine with water.
