Been told its not Colin's boat either.
I have bent the ear of the person giving me the info and told him to check into it for me.
Best of luck for your testing Dave I hope all goes well for you !

I think that you find that it is the famous "Water Shuttle'
It has been hawked around Australia for years with great speed claims that nobody ever witnessed.

I think that's been for sale privately for ages, I don't think it was ever a serious wwsr challenger, more a mock up of a space shuttle on water thing.. (as the space shuttle was the latest thing at the time) and for display runs and bedazzle people ... some things on it just don't make any sense...another one claiming to have gone faster than KW, somewhere on a mates lake with no one around to witness it... and happy to tell anyone who will listen,.... I doubt it would do 150 on a good day

Ken told me years ago that this Shuttle boat was for sale back then with big claims of high speed runs that have never been witnessed or timed officially. My god I wonder what lurks underneath that new coat of paint!! No thanks!!
