Looks great and if you can keep a boat locked in and level at those speeds without hanging it way out there in the air I'd say your on to something.

I will admit i was skeptical when i first saw it and chose to wait an see, i am humbly impressed.
Yeah, it probably only weighs 7500 pounds too.

A great video by FPBC . The Statement boat looked great running as it always does.

There should be some great running shots in Jacksonville, where they will be running with at least 30 to 40 other cats and 2 turbines .

See everyone in a couple of days.

It looks to me like the air packed in the tunnel is pushing air out of the tunnel beneath the sponsons. You can see the more defined water breaking towards the middle of the boat.

I think there are some pictures of some of the larger MTI's doing the same thing.

What is the hatch supposed to look like on this boat?

I saw two big exhaust pipes so there must be motors somewhere!

The motors are shown at the beginning, and at the :59 second mark in the video and 2:18 mark in the video the port side motor is shown(Lycoming T-53 Turbines) while running.

Impressive boat.

I must say I've become a big fan of Statement..

1st, build a boat and run the snot out of it and dominate most v's and a lot of cats with the first boat at all the poker runs....

2nd, take an idea, build a cat and run 180 with a prototype..

My only regret is not taking you guys up on the test run offer last year in NYC... I should have went for the ride, shame on me...

Keep up the good work guys.. If everything holds water the sales will follow, if they haven't already!

I noticed the same thing and it seems odd. I am not a engineer but it looks like there is no air getting to the back of the tunnel. Looks like a large amount of pressure in the front and pushing all the air out early to thr sides. When the camera shows the rear it looks like a lot of water and no air is coming out the back.

In the early pictures I remember thinking the tunnel got really small towards the back for how large it was up front.

that being said the boat looks amazing and from what I have seen from the Statement V they are top notch build quality.
