you not only have to have big ones to do that, you also have to have nothing upstairs to make those moves. could you imagine what that fisherman was thinking when he seen this guy coming at him full tilt. idiot.

I think thats the same river that Glen Slather had his boat turn turtle on him and almost killed him. These guys are not fishermen they are hardcore racers. You should see some of the test video the guys from Ali-Craft up in P.G have.

Those units are 17 or 16 feet with 200 opti or 240 SJ units in them with two racing seats and that is it. 3/8 to 1/2 center aluminum with 1/4" wings with 1/4" QT100 steel keel caps with some teflon on the bow to pop it up in hard climbs. Those units are quite quick (up to 60 mph in a stepped hull) with a 12 to 14 degree bottom believe it or not! They draft quite a bit compared to the flat bottoms at a stand still but at speed they are so light and built to lift quite high once moving. Up there they use them like quads...go where ever and pull them out when stuck. :thumbup: :happy:

Wild ride for sure but is it not easier going up stream or is it the thrill of being able to cover
more water and go faster coming down? ....Remembering the sprint jets the ralley in the channels
I'm thinking the rollbar and helmets weren't such a bad idea... :happy:
