It's very interesting stuff. I have a picture of a boat that shows the steps, just to big to post. Anyone want to resize it.

I would think there would be a point of diminishing return between HP and weight? I wonder how much that boat weights and how fast it would be if it only had two of those engines. I also wonder what kind of drives it had?

I wonder how a 46' Skater would run with quad 1800 HP Packard V-12's

The question shouldn't be how, it should be where........

I'm guessing somewhere around 35,000'
