    they wanted atleast 45 knots and ive heard it does well above that, she is pretty hard on fuel when the turbines are kicked in driving the 4 jets

    I was told 65 knots is more like what she really does.(My godfather works at JPL)

    That's a nice shot in the arm for the economy in little bitty Marinette Wisconsin pop. 12,000 or so. Had some buddies that worked at Marinette Marine building boats.

    That thing is pretty wet, I think it needs a backcut shoe!
    I would love to see the look on the somali pirates face when he saw that thing headed his way!

    they had sone problems testing it on lakeMichigan with the 15 ft aft wake beaching some boats, a couple guys were stuck on an island, and the wake cleared off the deck of a commercial fishing boat. the 65 knots is about what i heard

    It will be something like this : Jet Boater doing WOT "This is the USS Freedom, pull over"

    That is one mean looking ship. Some poor third world country is going to get there a$$ kicked by that thing. Hope is not my country.
