Turbo warship!
« on: September 01, 2008, 08:42:32 PM »

WWII would have had some very different outcomes if the warships were able to do what this one can; a TGV would have difficulty keeping up with it!

Surprisingly stable for such an over-powered hull - but the wave pattern is all wrong.

Yeah well that is a fast boat, some power going to the prop, because you can see the water from amidships is sucked into the screw before it touches the hull, very interesting footage.

May I just point out that the exploding boat is not the kind of thing we need in our hobby.

It gives us a bad reputation and leads to the closure of clubs.
