You guys dont know how close I came to trying to run APBA/SBI race here in my S.O.B. I know I would've been blown out of the water, and laughed out of the pits but I didnt care. Im young, stupid, and passionate about offshore racing. I just wanted to able to say I did it, especially in my home town. I e mailed SBI and got the official rules and packet, downloaded the ENTIRE P-5 rule book, had a throttle man, safety gear, etc. Work schedule unfortunetly changed those plans for me. I wanted to it for myself, and as a tribute to my dad, uncle, and all the guys I grew up watching around here running the "little" boats in the 80's and early 90's. Back when it was simple and a bit more fun IMHO. Maybe next year.

I got dizzy trying to find a 25' Warlock on this list.. They won many races back in the F1 glory days, including a world championship.. That means speed and handling... There is not a boat on this list that could beat one around a course... Nuf said.

Found this pic in one of Mobilemercman's threads. This is how it should still be. I think he said this was taken in 1985?!?!

DKerns - your about that, this is how it should be.

I see the A-44 team Gulfwind there that was the A Class kile record holder for a few years 83 or 84 Mph?

That really was when racing was fun and it didn't cost an arm an a leg.

236 eliminator eagle, Mine, i love it. the same bottom as a 25 and shallow enought to grab a beer out of it at the sandbar. Not a deep freeboard. Handels the rought pretty well for the size and the quality and features are great. And beacuse it is shalow it looks longer on the trailer.

That had more to do with the crew than the boat, which is simply a pop of a Glastron.........

The Kalibats could make anything competitive in a race...unless it was made in California.
