That's John Wright's old boat, quickest outboard drag boat ever. All of his engines and gear have been bought by a guy who's building an outrigger hydroplane and going for 200mph on the flying kilo! There's a few threads on S&F about it, a couple of guys are trying to be the first and there's the usual drama and bullshit going on! Very very cool challenge though!

My first point of start will be to rip off the old fuel and ignition system and fit something that's modern and configurable. That's half the battle really.
