obviously doing it the right way if we haven't heard from him !!BillDBastard said:The boat in the test crash video live on Long Island Sound. Was owned by a guy who used to post here named Eric. Eric was an engineer who worked with Hobie Alter to ensure the specs of the bot were up to snuff.
IIRC Eric is now off sailing around the world. Something he truly deserves.
