Hi Jonny

When you go above planing speed the front of the boat will lift higher out of the water and the boat skims across.  The water is pushed out of the way of the hull and you can generally see right down to the bottom edge of the hull at the back of the boat.
The actual outboard well may have some water in it but only a small amount.  If you look closely at the control cables you can see they have waterproof fittings on them.
It is possible to swamp some small boats with your own wake if you come off the plane too fast!!

Not sure of the outboard size but judging from the numbers on the back I would guess at 80hp or maybe 130hp.  I believe the biggest are now hitting 300hp!!
