    Anyone out there into boat racing? I don't follow any series of boat racing but I must say it's almost as good as road motorsports. Some of the boats they have out now are crazy and go faster than most production cars. There is a new turbine boat that does 210mph+!

    I am hoping that sometime a good powerboat racing sim will come out because if it's done well it will be really exhilarating. I just hope that day comes sometime or another!

    See why...

    The turbine boat I mentioned in all of it's glory. Be amazed!

    Edit: Just found this "Ferrari" boat, check it out for yourself. It's awesome :cool:.

    These things are limitless. Not only are they beautiful and fast, but they are some of the best sounding motor-driven machines in the world

    Haha, not so much comfy but fun for sure :D. The Miss Geico boat is just awesome. I think if I had enough money for it, I'd buy it then buy a cheaper car.

    That first video is awesome. Put that kind of handling in a car and now see what kind of lap times we can get ;). And the second video is amazing too, that thing is extremely fast!

    I think I've even seen a Powerboar broadcast at PSRTV, might be wrong though..

    Is there actually some technology in rFactor to simulate water movements?

    Not really, but I've seen a video of the mod. I think it was axed though. However I have seen servers that have hosted it.
