Our 12 days of boating comes to a close tomorrow, and we'll have a special quiz to see if you've been paying close attention. (To see what we've already covered to date, read our previous days of boating.). For day 11, we've got something that goes in a boat—and only a special type of boat at that. Ready? Our song is almost complete:

On the eleventh day of Christmas, my true love gave to me

11 go fast engines

go fast engine

This is a 725 hp engine from Ilmor with an Ilmor Indy drive.



10 jet skis leaping
9 ladies racing
8 cruisers cruising
7 fishheads fishing
6 Center Consoles

5 Mega Yachts

4 cuddy cabins
3 jet boats
2 motor yachts


...and a Pontoon in a Pear Tree.

I don't know much about high performance powerboats or their go fast engines, but what little I do know comes from reading Matt Trulio's columns. Since this photo was sent in with one of his stories almost five years ago, there's definitely a newer, cooler engine than this one available now. And the odds are good that Matt has written about it already on boats.com. What can I say... I like silver and red.

We'll be back tomorrow with our very last day of boating, and a quiz.

Editor's Note: Most of the holiday countdowns ended on December 25, but we chose to begin ours on that date in keeping with tradition. Stay tuned for more new and used boats to gawk at, ogle over, dream about—and maybe even buy. Because what better gifts could the wise men bring you than a platform for your next boating adventure?
