I've never been burnt near as bad as you,My worst was a July 4th mortar. Most uncomfortable pain ever, except for sneezing with broken ribs. Lol.

I've always said since my wreck, if someone wants to practice flying a boat. Go get in the back of your buddies truck on I95 with a piece of plywood strapped to the roof doing 80mph. On the count of 3 cut the straps loose and try to jump over that piece of plywood. Lol. The more I think about being strapped in the bottom in a quality race seat, the more it makes sense. Especially in a non geared aircraft.

THEY HAVE TO BE GOING FASTER THAN THAT FOR THE CAPSULE TO BREAK AWAY. THE GUY AT AUGUSTA WAS UNDER FOR OVER 4 MINUTES, HIS CAPSULE LID WAS BLOCKED BY THE CABLES THAT THEY TIED THE CHRISTMAS TREE DOWN WITH. I SAW A VIDEO WHERE ONE OF THEM DID THIS ABOUT HALF TRACK AND BROKE AWAY.

airboat angel ive been to a lot of test and tunes around and to all the races and never seen your boat there. If you want to find out if its really fast you have to get that boat out and run it next to some other rideboats!
