    Oddly enough, we are in agreement.

    On a side note, here is film of the original jet hydroplane.

    There website has been taken down and from what I here and read, it was rumor and not a legit attempt as with the rest of the so-called BS the last 10 yrs, although what they showed was the closest rendering to my ACTUAL hull!

    Ironic. The renderings were the most credible things on the site. Usually, it's the other way around.
