This Manitou is equipped with a brand new, state of the art, Evinrude Etec G2. Making this pontoon a performance powerhouse, delivering maximum acceleration, speed, and unmatched maneuverability.

This pontoon accelerates, planes, and turns more like a performance ski boat, rather than a luxury Pontoon.

The size of the lake poses one of the greatest challenges in this unofficial record-breaking attempt. In just under a 750 feet. Cory needs to pull the skiers up to approximately 45 miles per hour for the skiers to even attempt to get on their bare feet.
