An owner of this Sonic had developed some trouble with only minutes to leave for the Atlantic City Poker Run.

Outerlimits Support Team was there to help him make the run...

Also note that Outelimits now includes the http://www.tresmartinperformance.com/ Hi Performance Boating Course in the purchase of their new boats...


As far as this 51 in Ft Lauderdale, from what I was told the boat was pumped and there were no visible signs of a leak anywhere...

That makes me seem to think someone with evil in them at night decided to put a fresh water hose in the boat, turned it on and walked away. An investigation is pending...
If that is the case, I hope the catch the bastard!

From what I understand, Mike owns that Ford dealer.

I have to agree with Sharkey, the whole OL team is second to none when it comes to supporting this sport and anyone involved no matter what they run.

Drain out the water, drain engines(pull heads if necessary), replace necessary electronics.

Completely fixable.

I know it cost money- but the boat isn't junk.
Unfortunately, the boat will always be known as "The OL51 that sank..." That alone will put a dent in the boats value.

Mike and his crew are great guys! The support they give their customers is unequaled in the industry. Mikes crew is up early uncovering and washing all of the outerlimits on the run. I would love to have that service. i would be happy to pay for it. I have been in the back of the Outerlimits trucks quite a few times looking for parts where if it wasn't for them I wouldn't have made the run.
