Sweet vid. Tunnel vision was cool. Maybe try tunnel vision looking forward and transom looking down at the drives?

Awesome vid! Love the split screen watching throttles and roost at the same time. Maybe a forward view and cockpit view at the same time would be cool?

I didn't see any other cats out there. Were yall the only boat in your class? I bet those slowazz Vs got tired of seeing yall lap them every two laps lol.

I would like to see top cam front views and more rear views too.

I notice you took your hands off the wheel at least once, were your fingers getting tired or were you testing something?

Its more of a technique. We were following a supercharged cat around running P1 so we couldn't run the ideal line that we wanted to all the time. If we were running out front in a cat lite only race, you would see us set the boat straight and then I would let go a lot more often. The less I screw with the wheel, the less the drives move around and upset the flight of the boat. Straighter is faster. So you'll see Paul Whittier and I hands off down the straight aways, only making small adjustments for course correction. Its easy to racecar driver the thing around. With only 525's for power its all about finesse!

I was thinking the same thing I didn't realize those boats could "coast" like that!!!
