I think they were checking the hydro dynamics of jet propulsion if they used impeller's instead of #6 drives

A 2001 Skater ex- race..
I guess that says a lot about the quality and design of a 7 year old boat !

Gentlemen,

As an individual who has been involved in professional motorsports for 16+ yrs amongst a company of 600+ whose job is to come to work each day in search of 1 less count of drag, 1 more HP and or 1 more count of downforce I'm very impressed w/ the dedication, teamwork and results a group of professionals, privateers & enthusiasts have assembled as a result of one mans vision.

Congratulations & continued success and safety in your pursuit of the 200 mph+ club!!

Thanks for sharing w/ those of us that stand by in awe!

PS- if you ever get the notion to post where the boat is going to be tested or run in the future there are several of us that would like to come spectate!

I second that, Byrd. I can imagine you don't want whordes of people hanging around while tuning and testing is going on and I'm sure everyone here would respect your wishes. But, as long as we know what body of water the testing will be done on and a date, we could definitely watch from a distance! I know I would love to see it in person.
