Off-Shore Powerboats: The Miss Geico
Episode 7 season 2
This was a unique episode for us because this time, instead of watching something get built bigger, we visited experts in building faster. The Miss Geico team are the cowboys of powerboat racing. They may also be a little insane—you′d have to be to take, not one, but two Apache helicopter turbines and put them on the back of a boat to make a machine that can get up to 200 mph on the water. But of course, that′s the very reason the Miss Geico is an off-shore racing champion, as we got to see firsthand on the show. Also a little insane: taking the wheel of one of these things without previous boat-driving experience. I just couldn′t help myself.
