Hhmmm When you think about it ?
You can barefoot waterski at 40kts!! This thing is going up to 50 !! If you fell of the platform you would bounce... then break... I think stark staring bonkers comes somewhere near...
But what an incredible thing to have done?
The magic 50 kt barrier has been challenged for the past 40 years. I remember excotic looking speed machines being tried out back in the 70's. They could only "sail" in exactly the right conditions. No one could build a boat that could take on waves that come with the wind
needed to go that fast... Thebauld has been working on design after design for half his life... so I guess again you can say crazy to be that single
And one hell of a boat...
