If you want to prove what a great racer/driver/throttleman you are, put yourself out in the competition of offshore powerboat racing. It will never be the same as it was in the early 80's, and that's too bad...I'm sure we'll always have to deal with posers...


Must have been a long winter

I'm going outside right now and scratch the #3 of my truck. I know I don't live up to those standards.

Well. officially, there goes the thread, sorry Randy.

My question is, is there actually a way to earn the US-1 anymore? 19 different organizations running races, several different world championships, I mean, really, is it possible to earn that number anymore?

And Randy there is another down side to that, people do think they are former race boats when you go to sell them. I got asked that a lot on Red Cloud.

What I would do if I were you is put a real nice flowing bow flag on the front, similar to chads old speed racer and then have someone cut the Cigarette script in blue over chrome for the side like you are seeing on some of the newer boats.
you read my mind, i am putting that cigarette on the side on sat morning if the vinyl guy gets it done, just solid blue now, and going to lay over silver or chrome if the blue looks to plane. and i was going to see what that looks like then add the US1 if the front looks plane or put the mercury racing up front, did know this was going to cause such an uproar

You also need to be considering a new username as you know yours will not last long.
