Now, increasing speed to 50 mph, 60, 70, 80, and now at the speed range where the previous design started to kite, I used the foot throttle override and steering with my left hand, I put my right hand on “Pop” Switzer’s stabilizing control lever, which operated the elevon (wing tail flap) controlling the last 2 feet of the center section between the twin hulls. At 85 mph, the bow lifted slightly off the horizon — too high for safety. I pushed the lever forward to position 1 (of 4), and the horizon line returned to normal. Now, at 90 mph, a slight bow lift again, lever to position 2, now the bow was normal in good trim again. Suddenly, at this moment, many things seemed to occur. While my 17-inch pitch props (Record from Switzerland) were turning almost 6,000 rpm, my neck snapped back, the hull lifted off the water about 2 to 4 inches ... no vibrations from water contact. I felt like I was in a seaplane just after liftoff from the water. The rpm suddenly dropped back to approximately 5,000, and at the same time, the speed increased to the shrill sound of the two engines harmonically balanced. I glanced down at the Keller calibrated speedometer, reading 96, 97, 98, 99, 100 with those 76 cubic-inch, 80 hp direct-reversing engines revving at nearly 7,000 rpm. I knew we had just what Mr. Kiekhaefer asked for. Now [I felt] almost tranquil from the experience of “The Day I Flew a Boat” with a full boundary layer of air between the hull and the water and seeing houses go by like a picket fence. I realized that the straight-away water was fast running out. So, deceleration of the U6 was started with the same caution used in increasing the speed. The stabilizer control was returned to various positions as the speed was reduced. When the boat speed was between 80 and 85, there was a loud sound and vibration from the hull re-entering the water, almost like driving from the highway to a washboard gravel country road. Taxiing to the launch site where all the Switzer Craft crew were on hand for the verdict, I could hear all the questions. How did it handle? How fast did it go? What was it like? And you know the answers.
