Love that kind of footage. It's too bad that you could'nt hear more of the engines from the BT.

What is the power he's running?

Hey, I was getting to it Thanks Sean.

The boat is setup for acceleration and not top speed. We saw 0-60mph in 9.8secs and 60-100 in 10.6 secs and the stop watch was on the slow side if anything. We've seen 118 and it wasn't done. There is still a lot left in it with some more setup.

Here are some pics from the shoot.
