I know...that stunt driving is nuts. No life jacket, probably no kill switch. What I don't get is how the props don't cavitate trimmed out so much.

I always thought chine walking was when the boat "slid" across the water when trying to go straight. Learn something new everyday.

They do cavitate a lot,it's just with the weight of 2 big motors hanging off the back he can get them to bite enough to pop it up.

My old Hydrostream would stand up like that,but couldnt hold it too well...................I still remeber being 17 and dropping the hammer on a 17ft Hydro with a modified 200 hp mercury B max hanging off the back.........All I remember is seeing the sky :o I don't know how that boat didn't kill me :D It also had a nasty chine walk around 70mph unlike that second video it was easier to just power through it and she'd flatten out.

One foggy morning (in my head and not on the water) I forgot to trim the motor down prior to blast off. The guys in the club called it "The Moon Shot!" as I tail-walked down the lake, me stabbing the trim button as hard as I could and my partner finally having the nerve to crawl to the bow to help get the nose down.

I can't imagine wanting to do that on purpose, but from the lack of reaction of the guys standing on the dock, I'm sure this boater thinks he has mastered the move.
