Correct. The Seagull "open" boat is a multiple P1 champ in Supersport. The Ukrainians that run these boats are cool dudes.

Since the motors have their own scoops I would think that one is for cockpit cooling...

My wife's from Ukraine, and she was as surprised at me to see an offshore racing team from there. The kind of money it takes to be competitive in this sport would only be in the hands of a small elite. It would be neat to see them race next year. Will that series be running in the Great Lakes region?

Did these guys run at all in KW? I didn't see one pic of them or a mention anywhere. It would be nice to give them some kudos just for putting forth the effort.
