    You the builder? Good job if you are.

    ...the sportsman hydro on the site looks like it would be a blast too!

    Thanks for the compliment ... I'll relay it on to the capsule/boat/prop designer/builder James Brendel, owner of Hondo Boats ..... James is a 'Prop' guy who designs, forges and grinds high strength alloy one piece forged racing props, hydros, flatties, k-boats, boat safety capsules and NHRA Top Fuel Dragster Safety Enclosures while all I do is jet boat hull, pump and hardware design, fabrication and testing ..... James and I are friends that support each other on projects of mutual interest but, our businesses are totally seperate entities.

    The 'Sportsman Hydro' that you refer to is actually a Top Alcohol Hydro that goes through the traps of the 1/4 mile @ 225 ++ mph.
