Jerrry and Willie ran Love it Again. Both good friends of mine. Jerry is getting ready to "graduate" Fast boats and fast times. NO o/b ever outran "el Boss" unless it was broke or sittin on a trailer. "el Boss did out run the open fleet in Ft. Lauderdale in the early eighties. I know because I was in one of them.
I beg to differ...The outboard "Shadow Cat" outran the El Boss Cigarette on not one, but two occasions. The first in the Holiday Isles race at Fort Lauderdale...the second at the World's the same year...... "Shadow Cat"
was fast qualifier in the prelims but we broke in the final...
That Shadow with T-4's ran in the mid 90's...the Sport vees, including El Boss ran in the low 80's.
You ought to remember the T-4's...Al Copeland ran them the following year with Billy Sirois on the triple Outboard Maelstrom Open Cat....at Detroit.
T2x......AKA Rich Luhrs
