First, I think he was a she, and they probably were going 40 max and when the camera cut off they stopped and unclipped her and then did the scene with the rooster tail and such

Default Nordic 27 Thor

The Nordic 28 looks great, would've liked to watched more of the boat, but ya, i agree, there's a small pause, they did something, bcuz if that boat really did pull him off that dock that way, it would've injured him, thats alot of torque on the body,,, no way, you would be sore for weeks, that is, if you didn't hurt your neck/back and it didn't knock you out....

oh you most certainly could do that provided you were using dynamic lines. Static line would probably kill you but if you used a dynamic rope like the ones used for climbing thats no prob, i caught a glimpse of the and rigging and thats my bet. heck it might even be fun

The only way that thing does over 100 mph is on a trailer behind something that will pull it that fast!!!!

+1, that would have killed a man to be ripped off a dock like that. Sad thing is someone will try to recreate it and hurt someone.
