You've probably seen pictures of him with a paracute strapped to his back. I think he told me 124 was his highest speed. His boat is in Saratota now.
Helluva a nice guy, and smart as a whip too.
124.....crap. Thats f'in fast. Too bad there isnt video of that boat.

I'm sure there is on the donzi net. It might not be the 124 pass, but it was well over 100.

I can't belive I have been overlooking this thread for days. There is some serious entertainment value to be had here!!!

I still don't understand all the race challenges from TD. It doesn't matter who he outruns, he claimed the boat will run 100. Let the GPS be the widowmaker. Is this thing on for this weekend? If so, Monday should be fun around here.

LOL.

On a more serious note, despite all the ball busting you've endured in this thread no one wants to see you or any innocent bystanders hurt. If you make this run, please be wearing a full face helmet, Lifeline jacket, and have a lanyard connect to you and a kill switch. I don't care what boat you are in or how stable it is, anything can happen at speed that can result in a loss of control or ejection. Safety first. Good luck.

Sorry, missed it. Worth reiterating though. I saw firsthand what a boat flipping over at 90 MPH + looks like when that HTM went over at the Shootout a few years back. Happened right in front of us. No fun.
