Two thousand eight hundred HP per ton. Its gotta be the fastest thing out there. This as about 10 times the HP per ton of a class 3 boat.

I know "your" motor with all its mods might be making 3500hp to achieve that statistic, but I reckon everyone else is probably a bit lower.

Actually the boat must be 1490 kg at the end of the race, with 320HP so this gives 215 GG's per ton ( about )

Except for my boat, which has a hidden compressor, turbo and nitros oxide injection. So I do actually produce the 2800HP claimed. ( I even added water injection at the last race! )

Ahhh I wondered why it went so well obviously in the Cowes race's you will have to avoid drawing attention to yourself by overtaking Kerakoll

Perhaps the women in LA are not so good to view, so they make it all foggy in there, so you cant really see. Then - to avoid trading standards problems - they have to lable it correctly....
