Its called the Scream Machine, and no it wasn't a carnival ride at the seafood festival. It may look like the outside of a fighter jet and she goes almost that fast, but Sunday WITN was allowed to ride this monster of a Fountain Power boat with an engine to match. After putting on a safety helmet, the Scream Machine hit speeds close to 115 miles per hour with our cameras in a front row seat. But boat owner Jeffrey McCann says he also educates the kids who want to learn about this wake maker.
This boat has been 5 years in the making, but has already found victory lane. Last Sunday Scream Machine was first in its class at a race in Elizabeth City. Jeff accredits his success to his engine guy, Joey Griffin and the support of his wife Keri.
