Sharkey - I'm sure photographic documentation of this memorable event would be appreciated by everyone. Thanks for all you do. I was going to send a guy to do some charcoal and pastel sketches, but he is now off to UAE to cover a camel race.

Truth be told, I hope TD can pull it off. I have serious doubts about the 100+ (unless hes got a hidden nitrous shot in there) but I personally love the little sleeper boats. TD came off like a social retard but seems to have some qualifications that would imply he can do what he says he can. I will be there Sunday AM waiting by the Waters Edge to see if he shows.

I am looking into doing a photo shoot of the boat.

Inside and out as well as when it makes its hi-speed pass.
If it runs like he says!

Tim, as long as the first pic is of a verified GPS showing 100.01 MPH shoot away. If not, save your disc space and double up on the Shore Dreams for Kids shoot. At least that way the subjects of your photos will truly deserve the recognition.

Run 100.01 MPH Sunday, or disappear back into the garage.

Anything over 93 and I would be damn impressed. If he falls short but is close that would still be impressive. The difference between 93 and 100 however is HUGE when it comes to speed and the HP needed to get you there...

Is there a pool going on what excuse he will use to not show? I'd like a piece of that action.

Exactly. Over 93, impressed - just under 100, damn impressed - over 100, extremely impressed, learn that others have sweat, tears, and a lot of pride in their projects, (even if it is a larger boat), and treat them with respect, priceless.

Early in the morning or late in the afternoon were Trippy's choices.

Apparently the 22 foot rocketship Stingray that regularly spanks boats worth well over $200K needs flat water to run.

Without going back through the thread, 9:00 AM comes to mind....


Run 100.01 MPH or don't bother getting wet...
