Always seems amazing what big horsepower and torque can do to props and shafts. I think that this was about the same horsepower level in the engines that Reggie used back a few years ago for his then v-bottom record runs. I know these are different engine animals but the horsepower is about the same. Should be interesting to see how fast that Skater will run, my guess ,185-190.
Hopefully all will go well from here on, as it seems like Sterling and others have put a lot of investment and work into this project. Best of Luck to them and "Keep it on the Rails!"
