    Class 6 Boat with a #4 Drive and 880hp Engine!!

    24 Panther.. He's only going to race a "Few" events he said... Fricking engine sits almost as tall as me!!

    I'll try and snap a few pictures, right now the deck is off and they are adding some serious beef to the stringers and transom and moving the tank up to fit the trans.
    When I die, I want to go peacefully like my Grandfather did, in his sleep -- not screaming, like the passengers in his car

    My advise to him was "Just keep it within the rules" - and you should have no problems.

    There's nothing harmonious or Zen-like about a Cigarette ride. It's an anarchic kind of rush—the nautical equivalent of Viagra.
