Outboard Engine misidentification[edit]

I'm a newb and don't want to risk screwing anything with an edit, yet, so I'll just comment for now. The "1958 18 horsepower Johnson engine" on the Penn Yan 14 foot is pretty clearly not the stated engine. It is a 25 horsepower Johnson outboard, 1972 model year. 2ef2 —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 00:32, 24 March 2009 (UTC)

Sexual meaning[edit]

No mention of the sexual "Motorboat" —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 09:46, 3 April 2009 (UTC)

This article is about the water vessel. Not the sexual term. hawkfrost18 (talk) 22:44, 16 May 2009 (UTC)

Should have disambig page then, seeing as there is a Motorboat (this article), Motorboating (with RF choppiness) and the sexual meaning Dtheweather9 (talk) 12:03, 21 December 2009 (UTC)


No external links are present; perhaps include: —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:28, 30 July 2009 (UTC)

File:Speed boat and water skiier.jpg to appear as POTD[edit]

Hello! This is a note to let the editors of this article know that File:Speed boat and water skiier.jpg will be appearing as picture of the day on May 1, 2015. You can view and edit the POTD blurb at Template:POTD/2015-05-01. If this article needs any attention or maintenance, it would be preferable if that could be done before its appearance on the Main Page. Thanks! — Crisco 1492 (talk) 00:01, 10 April 2015 (UTC)

Picture of the day

A motorboat pulling a water skier in Victoria, Australia. For such activities, boats often have a high power-to-weight ratio and a hull design which allows for easy planing.
