Powerboat, (Eric Colby before he left) did an article about these guys, and actually eric spent a day as test driver. I think the article said that they get paid something like only $10-12 hour! So it's one of those jobs that you do because you love it, not because of the $$. But in the article, Eric said he was going to be stiff the next day because they really do pound those test boats! Great job if you win the LOTTO.

That Velocity looked like it was doing prop stands! Either way over trim or just a bad riding boat in small water.
