Yeah, we don't do that much anymore. But a funny story - while at college we took two watermelons and replaced the water with Bacardi over a two day period. One melon used Bacardi 80. The other 151. Well, when we cut them up and put them out, the girls dorm that came over devoured the 151 first. Needless to say it was a fun night... and many others like it.

Yes I bet, fun was had by most. Remember making the odd yuca flats here and there with 151.

Hey N-

Cool stuff. I know we went back and forth a while back and you probably didn't see this so I stuck it here (sorry to those who already endured it..): http://www.cbs8.com/story/15320024/r...y-in-san-diego

It went well.

Well, I know it is not the SST, but this is one of the Mystics at Lake of The Ozarks two weeks ago. We found that the radar guns only go to 208. How do we know this? On the dual on-board high speed GPS's the boat ran between 213 and 217 each run. The last run hit 223 just past the guns and was still pulling 0.5 g's acceleration. If the bridge wasn't there the boat could hit 240 if there was enough space to stay in it. That would break the world propeller driven speed record of 220 mph when it is a sanctioned run.

Wwwoooow.

You see all those horror shots of these boats tumbling and tearing themselves to pieces...but that was quite a sight! I hope to one day see (and hear) one in person!

That is one hell of a hull design.....I love the Mystic vids!

edit, I wanted to ask....on Mystic, I see it come out of the water (sort of like a bass boat on plane), and wanted to know how long is the steering rudder? The shots I've seen of it at speed it looks to be about 4 feet long. Just curious cause there has to me more down there to turn like this boat can!

N-
You are right on the rudder (at very high speed). We have different lengths that go from 3 - 6 feet depending on usage and conditions. You also use the turbine thrust in turns to steer smoother since the props are so far apart.

There is a patented reason why the big Mystics (and the small USV's) corner like they are on rails but I will not put that on a public forum. The little ones pull insane g's laterally. The big ones are damped for obvious human reasons - like breaking your neck. Think of fighter jets turning in the air and then think of turning on the water. Water doesn't compress...

Very cool. Oh, and I've fished under that bridge in the video. That's "home" home.

Pony Wars a go?

Gotta get a hold of NRE, but making arrangements through Andredmg for transport back shortly. My obvious goal is to be at Pony Wars.
