Watch this video and tell me if it gets your skin crawling (adrenaline wise) like it did mine. It looks a) Very Dangerous, and b) VERY VERY FUN.

Watch closely around 2/3 way through one of the guys actually has a front canard wing on the front of his boat... I'm thinking to keep the nose DOWN... but not sure. Looks like the nose of the larger boats kicks up through the rapids.

Either way frigggin awesome!

Also do a YouTube for "Miss Geico" and boat.... *ZOMG* amazing.:thumbsup:

They should be way out on the open water away from land. :rolleyes: There's lots of boats like that in FL as well. Those engines sound sick! :thumbsup: That's pure NA power like it should be. And yes, that canard wing helps control the lift on the nose at high speed.

Jet Boats/ Tunnel Rams/Tunnel Cats give me hard ons. No brakes though, so your balls have to be bigger or your brains smaller...

I think the canards are to act like somekind of air damper....to reduce the rate that the nose pitches up when it hit's large waves...probably help it from launching into the air momentarily and losing stability!

those guys are nuts!! I be the boats aren't cheap either. possibility of death is pretty high. Jet boat racers, drag boat racers and rally drivers are all on the same page for me...NUTS!
