yep that it you cant see it from the picture but the rudders are very different and if you notice you cant see the Radiator or the battery the radiator is under the drivers seat and has a scoop on it like a P-51 mustang and the battery is in a compartment on the bottom of the oil pan and no the way he built it, its not going to get hot he also did some tricks to the prop and hub very little to disrupt the Air flow to the prop really innovative stuff its going to be a game changer just like when he developed the LS engine they all said it will never work and now its the engine of choice

Beautiful boat, the front single seat suspension is very innovative. Will be interesting to see how it holds up being cantilevered out like that. Anymore specifics on it....length, hp, etc?

I'm not against sweet rides or affordable rides, but neither Hamant or Dave have posted anything real to it's content? Is this another commercial teaser from someone that post with no followup? Or a prelude to something great that was leaked?
