Thumbs up Can You Say137.8gps And More Throttle Left!!!

Sunday we went for a test run and hit 110 before checking stuff out then hit 137.8 with lots more to go but when the rain starts and your in a open cockpit oops. OH it wasn't my BAJA and I am spelling it right this time it wasssss KNOT RIGHT 46FT SKATER, ROCKET MAN GERRY was out testing the fastest BOAT IN NARRAGANSET BAY CONGRATS GERRY YOU WORKED LONG AND HARD ON THIS PROJECT!!. That boat handles wakes from sportfishers like going over a speed bump while driving my truck with eight shocks and 40'' tires on it. thats the KING OF NEW ENGLAND in my book, the pickup is incredible of that boat with the turbines top speed who knows 165 175 180 there was a lot left but he needed to make a adjustment so when we started again it was time to get on the trailer we got soaked. but it was well worth it GOD SPEED GERRY!! just think he helped paint his boat,he changed it from turbine set up to blowers to turbines does glass work, its a honor to have met someone so humble and nice and talented, I hope to learn somethings from him myself in the future. He is a great guy to know and its great he is a OSO guy with his 101 classes, thanks man god bless be safe. artie ps ICE was his copilot , hey ICE !!! and I was the ballast, aka camera guy on this trip.

Default gps 137+

Dude, Artie well said and congrats to Gerry too ! That boat accelerates from 115 to 137 in a heart beat as the air compacts under her. G, actually took some fuel out @ about 125 and she just kept climbing right on up to 137+ in the blink of an eye. Rides like she's on rails and even the big ferry wakes were tamed. If not for the major inclement rainy weather conditions he could have probably tested 150+ way KOOOOL.

Hey Wrinkleface and Ice thats nice of you to!He deserves it 80 somethink people read this and your the only one to POST a congrats. Boy this site is getting for birds. The guy can custom paint not just paint solids , wires and installs a turbines thats a feet in its self theres a lot more wires in a turbine than piston power. I think he has a lot of talent and is a very nice guy, doesn't look down or walk away from people who want to know about the boat. like others, So if you read this and are new here this guy deserves a congrats artie, ps hey Ice you got the best water man!!!!!
