I think I'd rather have the "rocket-assist eject" . . .

that's what I say, .........how many of us run an offshore boat at those speeds in absolutely flat water.....this is all a circle j#%k and pure BS....proves nothing to me....show me the benefit of what the hull can do in 2-4 footers where I usually run the boat, then I may be impressed.......

the speed run is about speed not what boat is best in the rough

then why don't they just race drag boats..... they are faster anyway

this is suppose to be the fastest offshore style boat.... so rough water ability is at least a small percent of the equation, not very much, but a small one....

anyway, we all know the fastest offshore boats aren't vee's anyway....

there are different records for each class i was there and i used to drag race boats and i can tell you to run a v that fast got my attention also to do it in a 1/4 mile verus almost two miles is a big difference you don't get a run at a 1/4 mile they run the boat a long way
