I'd like someone to link to the other threads at other sites that it sounds like are exactly like this.

Seems to be a pattern developing???

Default You Blew It!

TD If your boat will really run 100 you left alot on the table!

In my teenage days I had a Pinto that would run 130 and turn a low 15 sec 1/4 mile with a 4 banger! I made tons of money with that ride. The rich kids with their new Z 28's would pony up and I'd suck up their cash! You would never see me spoutin off like you are. Most the people in my school though I had a V8.

I luv a street or water sleeper and hope you do it! But like the others say with your back peddling I don't think you can.

I've got a Pachanga 22 I'm tryin ta get to 3 digits. It's still in the shop getting all the necessary hardware to do it...trimtabs and full hydraulic steering. With the right prop I think I have a good shot but I have a blown bigbock with a bravo. I also have 3 more degrees of deadrise than you. The problem I see you having...and myself as well(not as much as you) is when you do meet your match and that big mother decides to cross in front of you you are history! I have seen the consequences of a bassboat notr handling my wake when I passed....scared the sh*t outta that dude.

I have an idea this is gonna push a record here in post count so I had to chime in!

interesting thread. took me awhile to read it. i've seen this boat on the toms river near beachwood's beach. i was with my kids swimming n stuff. sounds healthy to me. he showed up about 3-4 minutes before a hustler 388. maybe 3 weeks ago. the hustler had blowers or some kind of boost. heard them whine over the exhaust. i think tripple digits is very cable of 85+mph. father used to race back in the day. pretty cool stuff. he had the slingshot covered though!

I am happy happy happy. I'll finally have somebody that can stand up to me in my mean green machine. I have a 13' Kodiak inflatable that'll do 102mph. I have her hooked up to a big block 454 with a blower and nitrous. Deadly. I'll be there on sunday. She's so fast she don't even touch the water. Good luck to all who dare to face my green demon. God help us all.

Anything short of 100.01 will be a failure, you know it, I know it, and every boating board will soon know it.

For over a year now you have been claiming you can run "tripple" digits on pump gas.
You usually flamed out long before anybody could get something set up, and you disappeared back into your shop. The difference this time is you didn't know when to cut loose. You caught the interest of some big fish this time, and they are circling.
You posted it, you got called on it, now prove it....

100.01 MPH

So I will do my best to click off a 85 then let them back peddle and make exscuses then next time maybe I will run faster

Your choices are..

1. Show up and run 100 and be a star
2. Show up and don't run 100 and be the OSO Jackazz
3. Admit it won't run 100 and go away

That simple
There seems to be a common consensus here.
I like DollaBills quote the best, but I'd have to say in number 2 you're incorrect. He has already accomplished that goal.
Doesn't matter at this point if he does 1,2, or 3. He's already accomplished the fruit's of labor from succeeding at #2.
He's already in the Big Scotty, Wiggler, Buddy OO, etc... category.
By simply dropping the mark from 100.01 to 85...
