I was in this boat once, back in the mid to late 90s, for the "Radar Shootout". I remember the button marked "showtime" which dumped and ignited fuel causing the flames to shoot out. That day we saw 177mph. We went so far, so fast, I remember somene saying, "are we still in Barnegat Bay" and someone else said "I don't the we are in NJ anymore".
Great guy and a great boat.
