I have a hull that can be on the water in a few months. We have a proven outrigger design with current ihba and sdba et records as well as the fastest propeller driven pass @ 270.2mph. Set up with a gas turbine and twin prop gearbox this hull will run for both records,(propeller and outright). Currently seaking sponsor $. we do not need to design engineer and test as we have a proven safety record with 4+ years on the track passes @ 250+mph. I have current sponsors for most components but need funding for the record. I am a 1 man garage operation that has an actual hull that can be seen at http://www.ellisonraceconcepts.com Thanks, Dan
I didn't reply on the site and I couldn't access the photos. Site looks impressive.
I don't know if anyone has told Dan that the record is done over a kilo or mile, yet and that is a totally different prospect to driving a 1/4 mile flat out.
My info was that Craig Breedlove's boat was designed on the 'sprint' boat technology and we know what unfortunately happened there.

The historical point was being made by Polo that Craig Arfons (not Breedlove) chose to modify a drag boat design and added a jet which did not achieve a record.
200mph with an outboard would certainly make its mark in the WWSR world and could open the wallets to an outright bid. Good Luck.
