Default Hey Steve

Is that necessary if Frank supplies the GPS and goes for the ride? TD has emailed Frank for time and date. Let me know if you hear anything.

Franks probably wondering " how did I get involved in this sh**"

You must be the same Tripple D that's been lifted from most every other boat board. I did see your vid, looked like you almost lost your arse in some waves.

Come on over to the TBB forum after these guys soften you up some more. Do you do all your boating on line?

Yup, he's supposedly a legend in his own mind

Default Hey

I beleive its 640 hp small block 610 foot lbs of torque. Should be running a 28p custom hydromotive prop made for his setup. I think. slip numbers are very low due to mods on the foot.

Where's OSO Steve, now that we need him most?

Never mind. This is more fun.

My 21' Ebbtide would have kicked SingleDigits butt. With a stock (other than headers) 270-hp 351 , it would break 60 with ease. If I had sorted out the Vortec blower that I put on it and added a 200 hp nitrous shot, he would be toast. Of course, I didn't actually do that, but that doesn't seem to matter in this particular universe.

The guy we need to get is George, with his small-block Arneson/Donzi classic package. THERE was a package that did deliver the 100 mph goods, and was actually worth the money he spent on it....

Default Hey

Is there a vid of that Donzi going 114 I think was the claim. I would like to see it. I know the boat was on ebay for sale a little while ago but was pulled early. Sold it to a friend or something like that.

It doesn't matter. All the vids he posts are abstract. He shows passing a Donzi in one but the Donzi is barely running. In this one the boats are a mile away... you can't tell if they are even up and running or just cruising at 30 MPH. He says he runs the small block at 7,000 RPMs hooked to an Alpha 1. I'm a big fan of the Alpha drive, my brother had over 1000 trouble free hours on an Alpha sitting behind a 454 in his 22 Donzi, yet this is still unbelievable to me.
