Classic video of the Legend "Ken Warby". The fastest man on water and a class act.

He was very lucky he didn't crash from that other boat's wake. That's how Donald Campbell was killed except he ran over his own wake.

Warby built that boat out of wood in his garage. He had supreme confidence in his construction and his design, but to go out there and run those speeds in a boat with no canopy...like Haggin said, "Warby has ****s big as coconuts".

Talk about "pulling the tigers tail".

The entire story is incredible. I've met him 2 or 3 times. Fantastic.

At what point does it become a plane instead of a boat? Looks like it's about there.
