Default Bud Select Turbine??

What ever happened to that boat? I noticed on their web site it has been sold, who bought it and where is it now? I always thought it was a cool looking boat . Whats the story behind it? I mean I heard alot about it when it was being built and it was tested and ran in the LOTO shootout one time didnt do so well and then disappeared never to be heard from again.

I saw it at LOTO. The wing was not on it. I think it ran in the 150 range. Only say one pass. I heard it didnt have near the power the Callen boat had.

That was a FAST boat and should still be. I was there for some testing and it was unreal the only boat I've ever seen accelerate like a 600 RWHP car. From 180 up.

The boat was brand new the day before it ran that time and Dave Scott had next to no time in the boat. It only ran about half the course which is only half a mile and hit about 150mph.
I don't think they ever dialed in the boat even close to its potential before it was sold.
