80 knots ?

Super-cavitation. What could go wrong? Shok

Those contraptions are so cool, but not very practical. OTOH, if you got a Hydroptére you could take some friends. And snacks. And actually go somewhere.´´

From the Sailrocket guys: “If we go again with Sailrocket, then safety will feature bigger. I wouldn’t get in that boat and go that speed again. We got away with it because we had to.” Shok

I'd only go on Hydroptere if there are juice boxes - the ones that say "contain real fruit juice" and see from the contents that means at best 5% grape juice concentrate.
