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!

I'm not sure why everybody is going crazy....Then again, I have only read bits and pieces. So what if he has a small boat that can go 100? So what if his boat can't go 100? I'm sure everybody in here has lied about there top speed at some point.......I would say 98% of the boats in here can't break 100, I wonder if that's why people are so wound up??

The last time I checked, there's no statute prohibiting any individual from sitting back and giggling while some self-aggrandizing tool digs himself a massive hole, then ends himself trying to dig out.

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.

DITO AND WHO WOULD BE DRAGING HIS AZZ OUT OF THE WATER IF HE FLIPPED ON OF US.

You cannot claim 104mph and then back up to 85mph....especially with video of a claimed 93 mph run just a couple weeks ago. Go for 100 or dont go at all.
its not that lil it the size of a superboat - 2ft mine boats 24 4000lbs 24v with small pad 650hp plus ,83 gps 6000rpms my buds boat is a superboat 24 3500lbs 24degree v with 575 hp hes getting 76gps 5600rpms and if that small block makes 630hp I would say 80 on flat water.with tabs more speed in chop but he has no tabs, all that work and you don't have tabs. for that to hit a 100 with a round keel 19v I would think 800hp 34p b1 prop not a 26 p 4 blade at 6400rpms. plus its out he has a speedo pick up not gps

It's still like making a race car out of a Ford Maverick and wondering why the Lambo owners don't go drooling all over it after you trash-talk them.

I asked the simple question regarding 200 alphas regarding expense. This is the kind of crap that proves BS to everything he says.

It's tough to find an Alpha for $500, even if he found them all for an average of $200 he would have been out $40k on drives alone. But he got them for that price he could have sold them and made a freaking fortune.

Any no talent azz clown can put a web site up with 'facts' on it. that means nothing to me.
