Thread: A day at the races w/onboard footage!!!

  1. #1
    Here is a little video I thought I would share with everyone. The onboard is on two different types of boats. The yellow boat #13 runs at about 86 mph, While the blue boat runs close to 118 mph on the course. There are also hydros in the video too. Two racers takes some pretty hard licks in the video also.

    Thats amazing. When I was a senior in HS, a few of us guys would take summer vacation in HOOPA, CA and work in the lumber yards on the graveyard shift to earn money for cars, girls, booze, etc. Well, we camped on that river, and those guys are racing in our bath...

    Back in the 70s a friend of mine had one of those B-Hydros. He used to take it to CrazyHorse all the time. It was only 8' long and had a 90HP racing merc on it. to drive it you had to basicly sit on your knees
