    Should we start a funeral donation fund now for the poor pilot?

    I don't see this thing staying hooked up passed 90mph! He's gonna flip backwards or the huge trim tabs are gonna push & sub the nose when it porpoises at high speeds.

    The dude who is the MC on this video does not have a clue as to the year of the Caddy ex ambulace. He said its a 1957 ---its a 1959. Wonder how much more of his presentaion is inaccurate. ou812--I will donate a couple of bucks to the funeral. Hope the guy never tries it--PWCs at over 90 are a hand full.
    I cant imangine trying to control a ten foot long boat at that purposed speed.

    I wonder if it's ever actually been in the water with that engine, I'm kinda doubting it.

    don't you have to do a bunch of buoy runs and they average the score for the top speed?

    if i recall they do this, which well wouldn't that mean that this ski probably won't be the world record because at least my guess is that it doesn't holeshot or accelerate off corners very well
