Anyone heard of sprint boat racing? Looks to me like they could use some fins on the bottom of their boat to help control it in the turns. It looks like they expect to roll over on land since they have what looks like a roll cage on the boat. I'm sorry, I've been known to like stupid human tricks, but if I need a roll cage on my BOAT, I think I'll pass. At least the boat is light and the woman seems to be mostly okay...

Think an MC could have beaten them?

I think you're talking about jet sprints... little boats, big engine in the back and lots of strakes going through a maze of canals in seemingly random order... Those things are cool. I used to watch that on Speedvision but now that it's largely the NASCAR channel they're harder to catch. Good watchin'!

:eek3: Those boats are cool! They used to broadcast the races on Speedvision on Saturday morning along with some other boating shows. Now it's motorcycles, choppers, and ricers. :rolleyes:

Wow! That looks like fun! (unless you're the woman on the bank)
