That looks awesome! That looks just like one of Gav's 14 footers.

I just think the the shape of the bow in is very similar to it.

A few of us went up to Liverpool for the demonstration of the jet sprinters, and all had a go, here's a couple of short clips of the day.

Grinch's ride

Demo

The accelaration was 'breathtaking'! (as was the cornering)

That was just outside Liverpool, and was a demo day organised by the RYA, or to be more accurate, organised by John Pussyfoot, coz he was getting a free drive of one in the championship in the USA, and was attempting to promote it here (I expect it was the reason for the free drive)

the boats were en-route from Australasia to the USA in containers, via the UK, hence it was possible to organise the demo.

They usually run in Australia & New Zealand. 'Kiwiracer' will know more.

600kilos, 1200hp, very quick indeed.
