Electric Hydro Demolishes Previous Records

On Sunday, October 12, 2008 Mike Bontoft drove his electric hydroplane to a new American record of 98.25 mph and a new world record, recently approved by UIM(UNION  INTERNATIONALE MOTONAUTIQUE), of 98.8 mph. The previous American record was 70.6 mph set in 1995.  The previous world record was 50.8 mph set in 1989. It was powered by Enerland PQ-4500XQ-6S1P 42packs. It is nearly unheard of to exceed such long-standing records by such a large amount.

Information on the boat can be found on the Internet.
