GF has faster boats than you?

I have to disagree. Outerlimits has proved many times that their big V's can outrun cats in rough water.

Yeah, I'm not saying EVERY cat ever built will outrun any vee bottom. I'm just saying that in general cats are faster than vee's when powered equally. Outerlimits and Fountain build some serious machines that deserve credit for their accomplishments. It will be fun to see the new Outerlimits cat when they complete it.

Without waving my Fountain flag...

Was watching my Pegged DVD this weekend. Forget which poker run it was covering, but there was a few minutes devoted to a cat running with on board video showing it's 165mph?? speed and the comment being said about no one even close behind them, (or at least the jest of it). Guess I should have paid more attention to the details, but was more interested in the eye candy shots.

Speeds/crowds at poker runs are insane/unsafe. Those speeds should be saved for the race course where all the drivers are experienced, not just a few. Just my 2 cents

Speed didn't even see Roses till after the first card stop, he started toward the back. Then they took off from there. All that we could see at 128 was roostertails!!

That I can agree with you. I have been at a few poker runs out in the Pacific Ocean where the Cigarettes and Outerlimits dominated the cats in rough water. There were some big cats with big power and they counldn't run with the fast V's. A 43' Scarab has been the fastest boat to Catalina (Scope Poker Run) Island from Long Beach past 2 yrs running
