Ever since Blake Wilkey debuted the Death Boat, his Jetstream Adventure Boat, everyone has wanted one. Showing off in the first episode of Mini Boat Mafia, Wilkey and his buddies David Hartman and Nick Nelson show what these boats can really do.
“The idea behind this episode was to take a boat and treat it with somewhat of an off-road influence,” Wilkey said. “I wanted to jump, turn, and slide across surfaces most boats couldn’t normally handle.”
These boats have supercharged jet ski engines and reinforced aluminum hulls, but when you add skinny slot canyons, that’s when the fun really starts. These boats are going to need some rock sliders for the next trip.
“The series will consist of different extreme locations throughout the US, Canada, and even possibly Mexico,” Wilkey continued. “We want to find obstacles that are harsh and questionable for these Jet Stream Adventure boats to challenge both man and machine.”
“My favorite part about the Lake Powell edit was the huge beach jump,” Wilkey said. “I think it could possibly be a world record beach jump in a mini boat. When I hit it at 52 miles per hour it was the biggest adrenaline rush I’ve had yet in this boat.”
