Powerboat vs car in London Docklands think it features Steve Curtis driving the boat, I am sure its all Honda again the same poeple who brought you this years Southampton Boat show

Agreed - it was a big let down and all it seemed to prove was that more power equals more speed! So that was helpful then! IMHO it would have been much more interesting if the hp of the 3 had been a little closer!

Agreed I am sure Steve Curtis felt a bit pissed too as he normally drives something with 10x the power of the honda. But as Honda dont make F1 powerboats he wasnt allowed to race them in one.

I couldnt afford a F1 car and I wouldnt buy one of those bikes with no starter motor. But for 5K I have a boat thats nearly as fast as the honda one. You work it out!
