Maybe it's just me, but the vibrations of the boat seemed more acute, and separated from the movement of the camera- as though the camera was dampened with a shock absorber. Nice.
Cockpit cam was a contour HD on a suction cup style swivel mount. Its not quite as solid as a double stick hard mount but it allows a greater range of angles from the point on mounting. I dont have a suitable hard mount to get a forward looking camera mounted on the firewall over our shoulders. Rear camera was a gopro HD on their "motorsports package" suction cup mount.

John,

Awesome video that shows how rough it can be when you guys are pushing it. This has to wear you out physically and mentally when you are racing. Are you guys racing in Michigan City this year. Your dad got a taste of how nasty Lake Michigan can be last year. It sure was nice to have the racers come to Michigan City last year.

I only wish you had those camera onboard when Bob went out to test last year in Atlantic City.

See you guys soon! Once again in AC!

What are the two flaps that jump up and down around the 50 to 60 second mark towards the corner of the boat. Are they exhaust covers??.

They let excess air out of the engine compartment
