    Sounds like a fun weekend planned. To much of a haul for me though. Who is bringing the radar gun so we can get some real speed reports? I look forward to the outcome!! Be safe!!

    There! I did my part to stir up some chit

    No disrespect inteded towards anyone by this post!
    I've heard this challenge from Twin O/B Sonic before. I like this one too.
    Would you consider a 24 Skater one of the smaller cats? I would. I would say you would get some takers on that kind of run. Say, a 24-26 foot vee bottom I/O vs. a twin O/B 24 foot cat? That could be a good run. Lake Erie is so unpredictable, you could have 1 footers the ride out and the cat smokes the vee to the island. Next thing you know, it's time to head back and you have 5-6 footers of absolute narrow slop to deal with. Guess what? The vee bottom driver is smiling ear to ear watching the cat disappear behind him.
    We should do this next spring, for ****s and giggles, and maybe wager some drinks on it too!

    Twin O/B Sonic - At least one of the Eliminators from the muddy Muskingum will be there, maybe two if I can fix and test on Saturday, after the rain. Don't know if the 3rd will be there or not, I heard he just took his motors apart for the season.

    Thanks for the shallow water report.

    You got it all wrong. The cat will stay Sunday night and call in sick Monday. I think the cat wins in that case.

    Thumbs up rbtnt and Brian

    RBTNT, I was hopin to see you guys there!
    I love tellin the story of when I was there and Kevin was mouthin off to everybody about how fast my 80 MPH Sonic was!!
    God was smilin on me that day though cause all I had to do was beat the "Mas Tequila" Baja (I did) and the Power Quest (I did) to be fast man on the river since both of the Eliminators werer broke at the time
    I told Kevin all week before I went out there, "keep your freakin mouth shut". Course if you know Kevin

    Brian, I was going to reply to this earlier but I was waitin on you.
    I'm in!
    I don't think Kellies or PIB is far enough though
    Also, you have to sleep, **** and eat on your boat
    Would be a hoot though!
    Would depend on wind as much as water though. (can I pick the day??)
    I know in smooth water, Brian's 24' Skater is 5 to 10 MPH's faster than my Vee Bottom (course I did spank him at the Rumble ), and in 2' or bellow (real 2' waves, Lake Erie 2' waves) he would run away and hide from me.
    I would think about 3' or above, and or a real strong head wind and the tables would turn.
    One of the scary things about Erie is that you'll set the boat for existing condions and be running perfect for 5 miles or so and about the time you take your eye off the water for one second, you hit a roguue wave!
    Have done that a couple times.
    My Sonic is about as much fun in about 3' slop in a quartering sea as it is in anything!
    I think in that, if there was'nt much wind to worry about, I'd get spanked by the cat there too?? (That would be a fun race though!!)
    I have run 75 GPS for many miles in that several times.
    It takes some work to get the boat set for it though.
    OK, how about this.
    Launch from the public dock in Sandusky Bay by the coal docks, run to Kellies or PIB (about 5 miles) for the night.
    Then the next day run to the beach at Pelee, have a cook out on the beach then race back to the ramp (about 35 miles) from there.
    The one with least amount of total running time wins ??
    Any takers
