Send him some.

I'm sure you guys know that Mr. Warby is now with AMF? He was photographed last year I believe, talking with Prince Philip about resurrecting Bluebird and other matters such as his run at his own Water Speed Record.

I will also be in the AMF pits at the OSS World Championships in Destin, Florida this November.

I used the stickers on our other boats since the princess was not done. I also gave a few away to guys who lik this site.
Send me 2 more and I will put them on the princess

well, had they come out of the front door they'd have been guarenteed on a car upto the British speed limit.

being constantly 'warm' doesnt lend itself to the glue having good adhesion to the surface, they'll also be on a boat doing 182!!

I reckon no, but would love to see a film showing what speed one of them 750mm badboys peels off...............just dont pull a skier coz he'll get it in the kisser

that is absolutely mental, it looks like you you are playing with the other boats making them think they are keeping up and then you open it up and waste them

I get chill bumps every time I watch this video. Great music too!! I understand that AMF is building a new 50' Mystic cat(Callan) with 1800hp turbines. With at least a 46' running surface, that boat should span the waves better than the 40' Platinum.

I am so excited about being in AMF's pits!!
