    Bayliner Entry for Superboat Class...

    I am considering a 40 Bayliner cruiser to enter into the superboat
    class. Sponsorship money should pour in with a stock Bayliner making a 2nd place in Superboat class!! Just think about the low cost marketing exposure!!!

    Aqua Toy survives to take Unlimited

    36 vessels register for Marathon Grand Prix

    By Scott Fusaro [email protected] <mailto:[email protected]>

    Two boats did not start so when the Pier 57 Fountain boat dropped out of
    Sundayís City of Marathon 2002 Super Boat Grand Prix, The Aqua Toy Store
    boat came from behind to take the Superboat Unlimited class crown unopposed.

    The four-engine, 5,000-horsepower beast finished in 1 hour, 13 minutes, 8
    seconds, an average speed of 68.71 miles per hour.

    Aqua Toy crew members said the boat topped out around 150 mph on the back
    straightaway of the course off Marathon.

    "If we had a better, longer course, we could bump that up, a lot more," said
    team mechanic Dennis Nebus.

    Of 36 boats registered in all classes for the Marathon Super Boat Grand
    Prix, 10 did not start, leaving only a single boat in five different

    The course, shortened to keep the boats within view of spectators, began in
    gulf waters behind Faro Blanco Resort. Boats headed on a long straightaway
    toward Pigeon Key before cutting left under the Seven Mile Bridge.

    The course then looped around on the oceanside of the bridge before a return
    pass under the bridges and skirting land until closing the circuitous route
    back at Faro Blanco.

    One boat, the Manufacturer 2 class Daytona Performance Marine, rolled on the
    hairpin turn on the third lap.

    Super Boat International president John Carbonell called the accident a
    "lazy roll where they went into the corner just a bit too fast." Nobody was
    hurt, he said.

    The Fountain team ended up winning the class, edging out Invensys Fountain
    by 26 seconds, 44:26 to 44:52 as an average speed differential of less than
    one mile per hour separated the boats.

    Miccosukee Indian Gaming finished third. A fourth boat in the Manufacturer 2
    class, Outlaw, dropped out of the race in the sixth lap.

    In other races, Zipp Express captured the Superboat Limited class with a
    time of 52:45, and another The Aqua Toy Store boat took the Super Stock
    class with a time of 50:36.

    Pump It took the Divisional 5 class crown after its only opponent, The Boss,
    dropped out in the third lap. Instigator took the Superboat Vee class after
    its two opponents dropped out.

    Class titles won by the only boat to start in the division included
    Superboat, where Team Jaguar was unopposed; Superboat Vee Limited, going to
    Donít Blink; Manufacturer 1, won by Xtreme Racing; Divisional 3, going to
    Wazzup; and Divisional 4, won by Vixen.

    Hey Mike, How's the Skater running?

    For the fourth? probably just trying to get the boat back together. I have not had time to finish it. Motor ready to drop in, then rewire and steering. ( Problem is I keep finding other things to either take out or modify )

    In other words, you could just about enter anything in any class and win, so long as you FINISH while racing against me, myself and I.
