Jersey Speed Skiff

Jersey Speed Skiff

Jersey Speed Skiff is an exciting and dynamic class of Inboard Runabout. In competition, the boat must carry a crew of two (driver and riding mechanic) seated side by side, strapped inside a steel tubing roll cage. The 300-plus horsepower Skiffs are a wild ride; they spend a lot of time airborne, bouncing around, rolling sideways to seemingly impossible angles, at 80 MPH. The riding mechanic holds on tight, while the driver stays on course.
