    Wow that's real offshore racin'. Did ya catch that 3" chop.

    Cool vid, but I wish offshore racing would return to offshore. Racing 40ft boats in a bay is just lame.

    Trim the inside motor down, outside motor up til it slips...put it on the limiter, cut the corner, and trim it both to neutral after the corner.

    You're not REALLY calling F1 boats "center pod tunnels" ar you??? These boats define the term "true tunnels" and are not in any way considered to have a center pod. I just got back from Revolution where they are building my new F1 boat - no center pod. The center area of the tunnel that drops down a mere 1 1/2" is not a running surface other when the boat is set in the turns, and even then, it plays a small role in the effectiveness of the hull. It is there largely to strengthen the tunnel, as these boats pull over 4 Gs in the turns and they used to break right down the middle of the tunnel due largely in part to there being no strength in the wide, flat surface between the sponsons. My Mirage on the other hand, is a center pod tunnel, and does turn very well, but nothing like a true tunnel. The Mirage will set and turn a single pin turn at just under 90 mph, whereas the F1 boats set and turn a single pin turn at 130+!

    Great stuff and when i worked at Skater we never built a pod on any boat other then a very small one for OB applications and to tell you the truth anything with a pod other then a flat surface in the tunnel is not a true cat . Just my 2 cents .
