So, T2x if you were going to build a boat today that would be considered T2x's follie part 2, what would it be? What interesting technology would you marry to what kind of hull to generate the son of Rolling Thunder?

I've heard about some interesting diesel developments and some new ideas about outboards, surface drives, etc. What do you think would work?

Pound for pound.......... the 28 skater is still the most speed per dollar available..... two Formula One O/B motors might be interesting....eh?

On a grander scale.... sky is the limit kind of thing...... I believe there needs to be some research into true four point designs....... lower attack angle...higher safe speed potential.... We are in a sort of muscle boat hell right now with available speeds far in excess of the talent levels present in the owners...... It is a credit to most of them that the weekend tragedies lists are so short.....and a credit to people like Peter Hledin and his designs and construction techniques.

George and I have plans for an outboard speed record boat............that we developed a few years back....

Any interested sponsors will be welcomed.

What would you consider the progenitor of the "true 4 point design"?
