Default Fast, Very Fast Video...

Link to a video that was shot 2 years ago on the Suwannee River. The guys over on Scream and Fly put on a little topend shootout for us little guys with the outboards .

Tops for the day was Michael Dixon in a Drag powered STV at 141+ on radar/143+ on GPS.

(Some of you may have seen pics of the blowover in the beginning.)

Big difference between 140+ in a 40+ foot canopied cat and a 19 ft. open outboard.

Link to some other pics too.

Thumbs up

Looks like dancing on the brink of destruction for some of those rigs. Gotta love the 21' and under boats that absolutely haul azz!

A stock Mercury Drag motor puts out 300 hp at the prop, but I believe Dixon's boat (yellow & white STV) was also running nitrous and his motor is not stock, so I would assume 400+. If I had to guess I would say with him in the boat ready to run the whole rig weighs around 1200-1300 lbs. maybe even less.

Those small boats scare the heck out me. I have owned a few. Fastest was 120. I have watched too many friends go over and decided bigger is better. Those people in the radar boat were nuts. I would have jumped out and swam to shore if I saw that STV dancing like that at 140. By the way they do not affect our insurance rates. Many do not have insurance. Ands those who do have it lie about the Hp.

Just curious as to what happened to the dude who flipped.. Didn't look like the boat hit him, so was he OK, hope so.. Good vid
