Did we ever hear any info on how this testing session for Villwock and Hanauer went down?

Just curious, also what was the name of the boat Hanauer was driving?

Chip drove the U-787 (Boeing). He will qualify it at Sea-Fair, but not race it. The Elvstroms are going to release information on what they are up to in approx. 2 weeks. They tested 'various' technologies, among which was the use of a blended fuel. From what I heard they were all smiles in the pits.

For a lot more pictures of the E-Lam & Boeing test, go to

and look for some over on the Hydropage.com site. They should be posted soon. The name on the boat is Boeing - Salute to Seafair U-787. The tests did go well for both boats, both Dave V. & Chip H. were pleased with the handling and the boat speeds. The rest of the results will be from some new computer technology that monitors boat various boat systems including the BioFuel performance.
