Default Unlimited Hydro plane boats ?

I'm watching shockwave on the History chan. and they showed a computer mock up of the boat, do they have one prop or two, they showed 2.

No the drag boats that run the big nitro burning V8's.

I still think only one prop but never pay much attention to this kind of boat.

Well there you go, you do learn something new everyday. I am sure it would be fun to drive one of those, but I would rather waste my money racing in Super V or Factory 2 where at least your out there for a while and you don't loose because you slept at the light for .001 of a second. I like the stop light grand prix when it comes to drag racing.

I takes a special breed to run them, 240 mph in 4.5 seconds.
