This thing is rad, but any captain that stuffs the nose like that better show me dual functioning 2000GPH+ bilge pumps before I go on that ride.

Unless it's a self-bailing deck, like Yamahas!

(notwithstanding, many of us here run secondary bilge pumps, too)

They have one of those down at Panama City in Florida. I passed it down there 2 years ago on a trip to the gulf. I heard on the radio there are only a handful of them in the country.

Around the 3 minute mark...

Cheese and rice theres some water in that boat. The mechanic in me HATES water in bilges. Are the Yamahas deck sealed from the bilge??

Yes, for the most part. As long as power is on, bow is up, and scupper is working, swamping the cockpit is not an issue.
These boats can take a wave over the bow and the water should drain away quickly leaving the bilge dry.

There is another one of those giant jet boats in the San Francisco Bay. Debated on taking a ride last time I was out there. Ended up skipping since I didn't have a spare set of dry clothes handy and didn't want to be soaked for the rest of the day.

U’ll Be pleasantly surprised how much water u can take over the bow and our boats keep going. Just keep moving forward and everything will be just fine.🤙🏽
