Well I saw your 50 over the weekend at Chip's. I was speechless to say the least! Looked great and the Sterling's looked like they are as tall as me lol.

Thanks for the pic's, young-gun. I took some pic's of it on the lift but they didn't turn out very good. Looking forward to seeing it running down the Detroit River or on the Lake.

FYI: There's a couple page spread in Yachting magazine about Barry's fleet of about 15 boats, all named Man of Steel. His biggest is his new 164ft. Nice article with some cool pictures.

On another note, I think it's funny when people call his piston cat Zuperman, too lazy to recognize that the boat's name is Man of Steel? - or are they just confused my the picture of Superman with a Z on his chest? Anyhow, the Turbine cat is an Outerlimits (although there was a lot of people saying it's an MTI) it was rigged by John at Turbine Marine, inc. The best in the business, who also does all of Haggin's Miss GEICO Turbines.

Based on the locations, perhaps DforDummy = Barry? Who else has such a jet set lifestyle that includes Windsor (Belle River).

Well that might be Barry Z but he ain't no dummy. He picked the right motors/drives and the right man to rig the boat.
