      Part 2 of the Kodak tour really took an unexpected turn

      I like how YouTube immediately throws in a Air Force ad right after she just threw shade on em! Lol

    • Justin McGraw says:

      @UCant Run I don’t think trim would really apply here as it’s designed for forward motion, at least as far as the blades go. If you used reverse thrust and could vector the nozzles down, with buckets, it would create a reverse force going up, causing the rear of the boat to be pulled down, and the front up. I believe the biggest factor is simply the buoyancy of the boat. That’s a lot of boat to be pushed under, I doubt they have enough speed/momentum to reach that point.

    Do you think Destin knows he just met a version of himself from a slightly earlier timeline?

    I was really impressed with how fast that massive boat slammed on the brakes and slowed down, very cool tech

    • B Pace says:

      The larger PWC’s like waverunners have the same reverse/ braking feature.
      I can go from 70 mph to stopped in a few seconds. Sit and turn in one spot, etc….

      It’s got a shorter stop distance than my car. Absolutely wild.

    • Aremna says:

      It’s about this crazy cool thing called Control Systems Technology. You can optimize a machine to act in a certain way to minimize the delay from one state to another. Simulating turbulence, friction, and thrust you can calculate the fastest way to decelerate using all the variables you have. Remember that reverse thrust is also just enough that it doesn’t go *backwards* either. It’s a fascinating field of engineering that I had as a class this past semester.

    that steering system is very cool…

    • I made an account To comment says:

      Another thing about jets is that it can operate in very shallow water like around half a meter, although the con is that at slow speeds they are basically impossible to steer .

      Hey, cool to see you here! Love your content man!

  5. MiO9 says:

    26:42 I really like how that boat did the right drift, and took off to the open sea for rescue

  6. Martin says:

    It’s great to see how quickly everyone switched from casual “this is training time” to very serious “we have a mission”

    • Alpaca My Bag says:

      @jerry brad and then there was silence. nice one dude, I’m going to use this in future 👍

    • jerry brad says:

      @Repent or you will likewise perish. “Beware of practicing your righteousness before other people in order to be seen by them, for then you will have no reward from your Father who is in heaven. “Thus, when you give to the needy, sound no trumpet before you, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may be praised by others. Truly, I say to you, they have received their reward. But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, so that your giving may be in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you. “And when you pray, you must not be like the hypocrites. For they love to stand and pray in the synagogues and at the street corners, that they may be seen by others. Truly, I say to you, they have received their reward. …

      And I say unto you, does your faith rest on so soft a bed that it must be proclaimed from the corners lest it fall

    • nasonguy says:

      That was intense to just watch, I can’t imagine what it was like being there, much less having that be your job/life.

    • Benjamin Sorenson says:

      Ye because while training/continued training is great they have a job to do when called for assistance.

  7. sproins says:

    I love how the coast guard dude was just as excited to talk about the inner workings of the boat as Destin was to learn about it.

  8. spartanjohn1178 says:

    One of my favorite things about these videos is Destin’s genuine interest and excitement about every little thing and how well it carries over to the other people featured. You can tell they enjoy what they do and are really happy to talk about it when given the chance. Infectious enthusiasm. Thank you for letting us ride along on your adventures and get smarter every day!

  9. Ben Dodds says:

    I can’t imagine how desperately Destin wanted to go with them! I wanted him to go too!

  10. Explodabat says:

    This technology is incredible to see in action, and the enthusiasm between both Destin and the crew when breaking down how everything worked made it all the more intriguing. And what a send off with that call they responded to; the crew instantly switched into action to do what they do best.
