Funny thing about this 18 year old outboard boat....

Throw on a new style Herring prop and the damn thing is STILL faster than the 2000 hp "World's fastest Vee Bottom" (s).

I remember that article in Powerboat. I remember thinking it was strange to see that much negative trim at those speeds.

What an achievment. Talk about putting your life on the line for a record.

Probably would have broke 200 had it trimmed it just a bit...

#1....hydros need negative trim for top speed as the prop....not the boat....carries the stern...and you must drive the bow down to....but not in contact with....the water. These truly efficient and airborn hulls are much more difficult to drive....... and understand..... than simply putting endless horsepower into a simple monohull......regardless of how "sophisticated" the bottom design is.........or whatever BS you're buying.

#2 The boat certainly could run over 200 today.....with lighter construction....a little more length ......newer, better props and the two stroke development currently available. But, it has no "bling".....nor does it define wretched excess. Plus....it takes talent...... not money....... to drive it.

Funny thing though........two guys who could drive it....Benny Robinson...and Michael Seebold....... are currently driving Reggies Super Vee.....

Why hasent this record been challenged lately. I know it was challenged a while ago but not successful. Benny Robinson drove that boat, or one like it? I have seen an outboard hydro run 150+ in a quarter mile, I could only imagine seeing one run 200mph. The guy that designed the 2 speed lynco to work with an outboard is on to something for sure.

Benny Robertson drove Tunnel boats (see below).. the record boat is a hydroplane..... Hydros are a whole different animal.....but tunnels are no walk in the park to drive either.
