    neither are the props on skaters with outboards... only about the bottom half of the prop is slicing through the water at over 100 mph

    very typical of catamaran hulls with outboards to have the prop so high out of the water at incredibly fast speeds

    Looks like a rudder hanging down if front of the prop. I hope it doesn't barrel roll from the torque

    Every ski needs a name. I'm thinking "The Shredder"

    Here is the cover they have on the Arneson drive. That is a big prop to turn. I hope it works out. I like new ideas.

    that must be scary fast with your nitrous

    scary fast is a subjective thought ...

    Pm hydrobug gp. He is the one that uses the old school 1200 motors in his hydro's at well over 100 mph.
    That is who I was reffering to in the earlier post him and Kawboy, They have some wicked fast Hydroplanes.

    Yes I am very much looking forward to coming to the Bug... this will be my first trip down and it sounds like a great time with guys with similar interests. That will be how I use my vacation time this year

    Getting it up to speed will be a slow feeling out process. Going from the drawing board to the water took 3x the time and $$ that I thought it would, and now the testing/fine tuning begins.

    I appreciate all openminded attitude and positive feedback you guys are giving this.... I honestly wasnt sure how this project would be recieved
