Hi Tim !

That is one beautiful looking boat and your pic's are great. Thanks for sharing them with all of us. That record will be broken by Phenomenon when they are done testing and they can do it safely. Good Luck Guys.

spoke with them about an hour ago and they had the boat on the trailer across from the Dry Pits, all 4 turbines spinning.

The presence that boat has is undeniable. I watched from the seawall side of the pits go from just me and a few others to everyone watching while they were attempting to get all 4 going. The sound was awe inspiring.

And [email protected] is it BIG.

To the best of my knowledge and I could be wrong, but Warby made his record prior to any involvement with John...

It was nice to see John add him to the AMF team and see his runs in Chattanooga, Tn...

Warby is a living legend !

We were all looking forward to seeing the boat run - hope they keep their positive momentum. It's a great boat and a great organization!!
