Ok, I know I'm getting carried away but here are a couple more.
Thanks, Bob put on an Awesome show. We also had 60 other boats.

The 47 OL ROCK IT is or was Bob Russells boat. It is not a GTX. The last time I saw it, it had big power, super clean and very fast. It has Fred Flintstone on the side as part of the graphics scheme.
"Rock it" is a 42. "Rocket Man" is a different boat.
I don't want to plug the competition but Rocket Man is a full size 47 w/ twin staggered 1200 Cobras.
Owner is Joe V. , he and his wife are very nice people.
I met Bob and his wife at Fitzgerald's Boat Show in NH back in June--they're both very, very nice!!!
I was extremely lucky and thankful to catch a ride on his boat from a marina back to the show. Let me tell you....with Mike Fiore throttling and Bob driving.....what an experience!!!! We effortlessly topped out at 120mph and didn't even come close to the boat's max speed of 148mph. At 120mph, the boat was extremely stable and solid. It honestly felt like a 37' Stiletto cruising at 75mph....I couldn't believe how well it handled at such high speeds. It's certainly an experience that I'll never forget!!!!
I THINK I have seen that boat before in Sarasota, but I am not sure. I believe that Mike Fiore brought it down to run it last year, if that isnt it there was one VERY close to it then.
Imagine...giving people rides after an event...what a great idea to sell boats and PR..wish I had thought of that one
LOL Jack too many experts was the problem..

as terry said, rocket man is a different boat. its a 47 with a cabin, has 1200 cobras with orange painted blocks. i believe it was finished sometime last summer?
rock-it was owned by bob russell, with the current owner being on long island, new york. bob then bought the new 42' gtx with "pv-42" on the side. yes, bob had the new boat at the last sarasota run.
