How cool would it be to have one of these at your sail show.

That has got to be a cool ride :) can you imagine doing that at a power boat show and getting people to trap off and realizing how much fun that would be.

lmao, my first thought too! A couple of mattresses placed about ten feet forward to land on. Maybe five feet. I'll ask my son, he knows from experience.

I'm hoping this is not some static display and there are pistons and actuators involved.

I volunteer to shoot the hose of warm water. A nice blast in time with the waves.

And to teach the crew that his primary purpose in life is to block the spray from hitting the skipper.

Is that just a display or is it a real sim?
FYI there is a computer sim thats pretty cool you can have a 16 or a tiger.
You have to buy it and the add on boat kit.

Was very disappointed that my laptop didn't have the graphics card to run it.
