YouTubers Build World's Fastest Twin Jet-Powered Canoe

Generating a total thrust of 143 lbs, the two jet engines sound like a fighter is passing overhead.

Ever since jet engines have become available for the larger masses, people have been sticking them on pretty much everything they could think of. But most of the jet-engined contraptions we’ve seen in recent times are land-based.

The Hacksmith, a YouTube channel that never runs out of great ideas, has built the world's fastest canoe powered by a couple of jet engines and it just oh-so loud.

Jet engines have become available to larger masses in recent years and people have been having a go at putting them everywhere and anywhere recently, with one notable example being the Bone Shaker, a monster jet truck that comes equipped with a J79 turbojet that generates 18,000 horsepower.

While it is relatively easy to imagine a truck at that speed, a canoe is a stranger to such speeds with its calm nature. After the build is done, the canoe becomes a monster that can generate a total thrust of 143 lbs with the two jet engines producing that a noise that will make you feel like a fighter jet is passing overhead which makes it definitely worth a watch.
