Is this the legendary Arctic Challenger Gav?

Should be quite quick, all the way to the sea bed with the amount of fuel it will need to carry

Will be a very quick boat with normal fuel load yes, not quite sure how she will fair with a full fuel payload, it is the intension to test the characteristics of the boat with different fuel loads to find the best compromise, refueling more often may be the only option. I sincerely hope my customer is succesfull in his attempt, a lot of effort and planning has and continues to take place.

I 100% agree and it will be a great acheivement, and should get the Seaquel some good publicity
Although you are right, refuelling may be the best option as despite being 4strokes the Verados are still thirsty buggers! I was just wondering how what is still a relatively small boat would cope with all that fuel floating about. I too wish the team the best of luck
