It looks like a lot of the boat is in the water. Is that because the boat tides extremely level or were the trimming it out conservatively?

not bad for 1500hp/ side for a 50' boat, is it 50'loa or running surface, looks very heavy in the water, Is Johnny's head over the windshield?

+1 Why is the whole boat in the water even when it says 180MPH?

I was not in the boat... so, I don't know. (even if I was in the boat I wouldn't know)
Johnny T & Nick Buis would have to answer any tech questions.

Keep in mind this is a whole different type of boat then we're use to seeing. It may not adhere to some of the standards we are use to. The tunnel is very different then anything else out there. It may also just appear to be wetted because of how its ventilated. Just a guess from me though. 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.
