My head is starting to hurt, but this was never about a race. It was about his little boat running 100 MPH

Period. End of story. Over

Exactly, I'm done. As you all know this same thing is still going on over in the Hotboat forum and others.

This whole thing with did anyone see my blue Stingray was running with the Poker Run boats should have never been started:
We as a club and you will understand this knowing T2X are no different then any other sanctioned group!
We have to file permits, get State Police permits, Coast Guard Permits and special insurance for the run.
Yes we can't control the bay but we CAN NOT allow any boat to infaltrate or become part of a poker run without waivers and papers filled out, never mind the rules and regulations of the Poker Run. WE have set standards with The State Police that our boats will be under pace with no greater speeds then 80 mph on the bay most boats run 70-75 mph to stay together. Now there are boats that run the bay and went by the Poker Run but they did not have anything to do with the run nor did they try to get invoved.
What Tripple Didgits just did was placed himself by posting that he out ran half of the guys in the run, I don't care if he was 1 mile away he just had no buisness posting that he was even near, around, running with the NJPPC. Taking pictures is one thing as long as your at a stand still. If anyone ever did that at a Sanctioned Race the Coast Guard will be towing you to shore with more tickets then you can imagine,
As a committee member I know were Dave is coming from and the rest of the committee is in an up roar over this.
I appreciate your position and concern. I also am not always in agreement with what Rich posts or the way he goes about it. That said as the video shows we were not close to the poker run as they were running. I see the liability no different than the little guy crabbing in the bay when 50 high performance boats go by on the fly and he is injured. Thanks god that does not happen. As far as the phone calls he recieved telling him not to show up on sunday or he will be shot in the head with a 45 and keep you DEA friend out of it. That leads me to believe it could be someone from this board. Than Sharkey Marine with the comment and picture which I see as an inference to the 1984 Craparotta golf club murder what should I think. This is to much. We will be there Sunday for ourselves.

that attack him.

#2 Has any one read the entire step by step R&D write-up done on this project?
it seems highly possible that his claims are true when you look at all the work done. Each increment of progress is documented.

#3 Has anyone noticed that this guy has been featured in magazines for engineering record breaking N2O systems. That tells me he's got some credibility, not some Johny come lately sh!t talker.

#4 Most anytime someone engineers (like racers) a kick ass go fast package & developes it after years of testing, they're not going to get satisfaction by posting the GPS speed, I believe they want to enter it in a heads up race & kick some butt with it & get notoriaty among their peers.
Rich has been asking time & again for someone to come out to his stomping
grounds & get whooped. Theres a whole site full of guys out by him,
no ones stepped up to race him.

#5 People have gone to his location to see the boat & others with high post counts have said he's a decent guy, why all the dis-respect is shown to him?
He's not a pariah for NOT showing proof or showing contempt towards his attackers, he should be proved wrong in a race.

Thanks for the warm welcome, I'm getting into my flame suit now!
He has no credibility here because he put lipstick and breast implants on a pig and proceeds to tell everyone his chick his hotter than their chick. At the end of the day he is still poking a pig. I don't care how smart the guy is, but why on earth would you pick a 22' Stingray and a Alpha drive to go 100 MPH and brag about it is beyond me. If the guy is really that good, he will eventually get noticed and others will post about him. Instead he waves his own flag so he has to be prepared to have shots fired at it.

Default Hey

To coin a a phrase I have friends in low places. Rich is not one of them. Rich is a good guy that would do anything for anyone. He has obviously gotten off on the wrong foot with you guys with no where to go. Sunday we will run and be done with this. Hopefully.

Un-beknownst to many, there is a cure for having diareah of the mouth.....it is called keeping your mouth SHUT!

Obviously he has a long checkered past of diareah of the mouth and when he barrell rolls someday and "checks out" you will be able to fit all of his friends in a Mini Cooper to go to the church. (and still have an open seat!)

At NJPPC we welcome anyone and everyone. With one condition.......they be respectful to other boaters in and outside of the club. Running his mouth non-stop and then jumping in the Poker Run trying to prove how big his gonads and engine are is not the way to do it. If he has a beef with the "big boat - rich guy syndrome" he needs to think again.

Tim Sharkey our photographer started in our club with a home made 13' Sharkey Bullet. 10yrs later he is the club photographer and a director of the club.

I have read many of Sharkeys post on many boards. Have been to his shop window shopping. Always seemed like a well respected business man. He may be but those post are uncalled for inlite of what is going on.

He copies and pastes everything from one board to another. Solicits a response, most of which appear to be the same on different boards. But much better info there.

He can mass produce these drives
Spanks cats, and whatever else he races
Doesn't have video or GPS, because he loves to spank them in races

In spite of all these "Victories", nobody has ever "ponied up and raced him". Heck, they won't even go for a ride.

I might be wrong here, but don't you have to be racing someone to race them?

Not trying to cause too much trouble here but, my old boat (which now belongs to my father) is a 22' Advantage Citation with a 509ci @ 700+ hp with a deep bravo. Best I ever seen was 82 mph with 50 Gallons and four people. On pump gas. I don't doubt that you can hit the 80's with your smaller, lighter and less advanced stingray but 100 mph isn't going to happen. Mine started to chine walk @ 80 (no tabs). I could't even imagine 90+ I threw around making it faster but why? Its not safe at those speeds in that small of a boat. BTW I have the #2 spot on Speedwake Microboat thread...
