And No: I won't ride with him> But he claims it's a blast and rides great: even when almost the whole boat _lifts_ out of the water and basically rides on the props.

I guess I'm getting old, but just the thought of that scares the _____ out of me!!!

wouldn't even just a wind gust at that speed be enough to blow over?

Default Bustin' Out

Not a race boat, it is privately owned by a guy in TX. Does Oil Field Equipment, hence "Bustin Out" is when a blow out occurs from a gas pocket- hairy stuff.

BIG set of monster motors 632 CI blown, etc. about 1000 hp on 92 octane, >1200 hp on Nitro- ? Speedy 3A's

Claims to have seen 140 mph on the latter. Wow

What was the max speed the hull was designed for ?

I still want one of these bad boys, I think the design was way ahead of it's time.

WITHOUT a DOUBT! The Shadow and Chris Cats as well as the old Jesse James race boats were DECADES ahead in their design and function. Even with todays hot rides like in the 30 feet range, i.e. Skater, Spectre et. al. that extra weight those things had and their rough water handling I THINK are as good or better than todays lighter faster hulls. It is MY belief that although the fit and finish on todays boats is obviously far superior and the composite materials have helped to make them alot lighter and hence faster, one ride in one of those "old" boats will quickly convince you that they were truly designed to run FAST IN THE ROUGH!

Thanks GJL and T2x for your forward thinking design and invention.
