So you didn't actually run IN the poker run, you just took the boat out around a poker run that you had nothing to do with... Stayed a mile away to take some video that shows nothing.

You claim to have 200 outdrives of development, even at $500 a piece (dirt cheap) you have $100,000 sunk into that alone.

So, 100k into the drive, Hydraulic steering even cheap is $2k, Engine has to be a good $3k, and the Stingray it is all in probably cost at least 8 bucks.

I don't think anyone would mind admitting that they got beat by a Stingray that cost $105,008.00 yet no one saw you.

Its funny how Im hearing all this white noise and its coming out of FL must be somthing in the water or there all slow not sure wich. Special when there so worried about a little 22 foot Sting Ray, probly the best built 22 foot no pad boat ever built. LOL if I had 105 k into my boat I would be running 125 + mph

Maybe the water makes us smart enough to see BS from a mile away.

I can pretty well remember you saying you went through 200 alpha drives for R&D for your project. They aren't free, and aren't cheap the last time I checked. If you got them for less than $500 a piece you could have made a fortune selling them off on eBay. Enough to buy a boat that actually goes 100+.

FYI: teh red linnes underr the wordz meanz itz mizpelled.

Maybe living in Ft. Lauderdale the past 5 years affected me, but how come no response to my offer to clock you with a radar gun?

And, I've had a little experience with a 22' stingray. I took one in on trade in maybe '01 (?). With a 350 mag, 300 hp and a 21 pitch sst prop I could see 67 out of it trimmed to the moon and no fuel. And I know how to run a boat.

As we all know, it takes an increasingly larger amount of HP to make gains as you approach higher speeds. The other issues you haven't talked about are the steering (scary) and the boats do chine walk at higher speeds.

And, one more quick thing, why are your posts getting abrasive? All you have to do is show up and we'll radar it. Over and done with. Go ahead, prove everyone wrong and you'll be an OSO star......

I can help, let me know.
