On February 19, 2013 the tank tests for the right and left Vortex SeaDrive Units were successfully conducted. Present to witness this historic moment in our humble back yard beginnings in Gulfport, Florida were Bob and Derrick Dudinsky, local father and son Marine Design Engineers and Fabricators.
Live Sea Trials were successfully performed before a crowd of team members and interested by standers on Wednesday, March 5, 2013 in Islamorada in the Florida Keys.
In November 2013, a series of tank tests were performed on a new, much more powerful design of the 800 Series Vortex SeaDrive. Live SeaTrials on this new design took place during January and February of 2014 in Gulfport and Treasure Island Florida; and again in May of 2014. See videos.
Once again, James has taken what he learned during the most recent SeaTrials in May of 2014 and has redesigned this third prototype.
With better quality and more powerful pumps and motors and a refined hydraulics package the sea trial scheduled for early 2015 promises to the most exciting yet. Look for video footage no later than the end of January 2015.
