Doc John put the coals to her on the leg down to Burlington but one Bravo said "no more a that sh!t" in Burlington!!!

Best lines from Doc's little over 100mph run...

"I was half throttle and hitting 5700 rpm... I need XR's and bigger props!" -Doc John

"If he was half throttle that boat goes way over 200 mph!!!" -Shane with a big grin!

I'll fuel today and have a good idea but my bet is we're more in the "160 Gallons used" range...

You put on some show this weekend bro. Had a great time. Guess we have to do it all over again next weekend in our backyard. ( Oh Boy watch out!) Thanks for all the hospitality.. You guys have a really nice spot to go boating. And the Turtle definatly adds to the whole enjoyment factor I am sure.

Glad to see also that there were not too many mercury casulties in the group either. Next time you put this run or another on it will be on my list to do. Me and the rest of my "Fat Ass" group are looking foward to next year as well.
