We chased that monster (The 4 engine CUV)in the Hudson River race with the helicopter. Our pilot would climb way up in each turn and dive right down next to it as it rocketed past, we had a terminal velocity in the dives of about 130.... They went past us with 30 mph to spare......... We had to short cut the course just to get close up video of it for a few seconds on each straightaway.

WOW!

What a stable!

Does he ever run these boats?

I remember Dynasour from the 80's in Chi-town. Ran with Marc Berman's "Bam," out of Marina City Marina."

He won an award for Jester being the "most run" boat in the history of the FL Powerboat club. He ran it to the Bahamas last month and MarK Berman made the run over in a cruiser. Two cool guys with tons of powerboat history/stories.

The Bertram is named DynaSoar........
