So I would think testing has started,......I know they were waiting for Sterling,......for the authorization codes to fire
the engines and start the actual testing.

Hopefully we will start to hear some results

Awesome! Thank you!

At what point does the FAA take over jurisdiction from the water police and demand a tail registry #??? kidding but not...

I remember, and really not all that long ago, when cat speeds danced between 102mph to 105ph was pushing a boat/power threshold and then the step was up 110-120 was like running at ludicrous speed - for this new generation of Skater creations -it's a slower cruise - nice to see creativity, technology and the need for speed alive and well!

Not to offend anyone and I realize this is not the best place to pose a question of a different skater build - but how is the progress of the 412? Paint and power - Mild or wild?

Here is what happened to me when one poped at around 105-110. Non-event.
