Great video and good looking boat but I confess to knowing nothing about the boat.

Maybe that's becuase I live in Australia and, perhaps not surprisingly, the '"world record" Tampa to Miami or the "world record" Miami Nassau runs didn't get any coverage here. Why IS everything in the USA a world record??

And is that the worst ad you have ever sen? Appallingly written and a tad misleading. I thought "completely rigged" meant ihat engines and drives were actually bolted in.....

Did the boat ever race or was it only used as a record setter?

Yes, the Pfrengels have set quite a few inter city records in Australia but they don't claim them as "world records"!!
