Cat,

I'd say those are the marking bands on the outboard engine cover that look like three helmets....wrong end of the hull for occupant/s...

Rich,
Why did they not put the driver a little father forward to stop the blow over? I know it will not accelerate as hard but a least it would prevent blow over.
Why have the major changes in F1 in the last 20 years been canopies and carbonfiber hulls?
By the way you miss spelled Gilmore in another thread.

Well, can you now impart those lessons to the next generation so we don't have to repeat the "adventures"?

I noticed that, but obviously got it wrong as well, coz I thought it was 'Gimler' (toothed belt driving a blower, or in this case, linking powerheads)

The camera was just invented after that boat, soo I'm guessing the gun powder for the Flash makes it look like a 4 person boat. 1 in the cockpit and 3 before the engine.

Yes, It was T2x, Catmando and Winston Smith.
T2x was trying to get rid of the commie f'cks before the lying, mischievous presidents right hand man Bore...I mean Gore invented the internet, for the sole purpose of letting cat & winston spew their illiterate beliefs.
My hat is off to T2x for his valiant efforts.
