Thrill Zone - S.O.S. : Extreme Powerboats

Professional powerboat racing is one of the most death-defying sports in the world. Competing at speeds that often reach 200 mph, their boats are marvels of engineering but even the most technologically advanced can crash. From Formula One Racers to Offshore Powerboats to Unlimited Hydroplanes, Extreme Powerboats takes viewers up close with the world's fastest boats, the sport's best drivers, and the most advanced technologies.
