I didn't understand a word he said, but that thing was hauling! Cool design. Loks like they keep crew on the outter hulls to adjust the "keels".

Cool video.

Holy crap - that's insane! Had the grinder at 0:42 been able to crank that thing connected to the propeller a little faster, they would have hit 52 easy.

It must be amazing to sail this speed without engine noises.

Re: Hydroptere - World Record 51 kts

At 51 knots on that boat I dare say there is just as much noise without engines.
