Default What boat Throws the most water ?

Ive always loved watching water be displaced. Slalom Skiing. Big 1000Hp Jet boats rooster tails... and MONO FE !

In your opinion... what RC Boat moves the most water in the most dramatic way?

My bet... Is a large high voltage Mono FE

Whatever floats your boat. I prefer sailing and they don't "throw water".

Any boat running a surface drive will throw water. Here's a gas scale hydroplane race heat. Water starts flying around 2:30 into the video:

What you need to remember is that those boats all have the top half of the prop out of the water. The blade exiting the water is what throws the water in the air, giving that nice high rooster tail. Any boat that has a totally submerged prop won't give you the same effect, just the water coming out from under or around the hull to fill the hole left behind the hull, like a ski boat does

Tossing a big roostertail kills speed, ideally you want it long and low.
