Looks like Bloke spins the wheel. Is it a jet drive. Spins jet full circle very quickly? In reverse it dips bow, then full forward again it ploughs under water.

Looks like full reverse bucket on a jet, he seems to tell the observer to hang on before he nosedives, it was a party trick that we used to do on the fireboats on the Thames when there were a load of recruits up on the bow.
