Force F1 "Armed Force" Leaving for the USA this Force is powered with the same record breaking engine as Sudden Force. The PFM (Priest Family Marine) Engine is a 1700 Turbo Charged Intercooled, 555 cubic inch Chev Block. After testing ....the recorded speed of the day, at only 60% throttle, was a whopping
135 mph....Now that's got to make your eyes water!






Amazing boat!

Just what do you tell your insurance guy on something like this?

Back in the late 70's, early 80's, there was a company call Performance First Marine which built turbocharged marine engines, and used the same initials PFM.

I am going to say it is kicked up at the end as when the boat is running at speed, the length of the un-modified tab would have it creating downforce, even when fully retracted.
With the "kick" in it, I would assume it would run clear of the surface and not exert any force on the boat.
