You guys are awesome! I never expected this number of responses. Now I'm thinking I'd like to catch a ride in a 100 mph boat just one time to say I've been there. It's got to be on smooth water though.

1969: 101.200 MPH, SS-145 Baby Huey, Super Stock, Howard Hull, .30 over 427 Chevy at Miami Marine Stadium. Miami Drag Boat Assoc./APBA sanctioned

1982: 102.263 MPH, Y-3 CENTURY 21 Special, 850 cc hydro, (about 13 feet long and 495 pounds total weight) ) Don Kelson hull, Sunbeam Imp engine at MooreHaven, Fl. APBA/UIM World record. Boat now owned by Bill DeGlopper of Buffalo and runs the Vintage circuit

1987: 112 MPH overall race average, 1 2/3 mile course J-146 STEELER, 7 Litre hydro, 468 CI Chevy, Staudacher Hull at St. Pete, Fl. APBA/UIM record

1992: 166.236 MPH lap average, 2.5 mile course, Unlimited final heat, U-2 T-PLUS, Honolulu, HA, Unlimited Hydroplane, APBA/UIM world record

1993: 154 MPH overall race average 12.5 mile final heat, Unlimited race, U-2 T-PLUS, Honolulu HA. Unlimited Hydroplane, APBA/UIM World Record

1998: 127 MPH overall race average 52.5 miles, APBA Gold Cup, Detroit MI, Detroit River. U-2 Unlimited Hydro, sponsored that race by the Detroit area Metro Ford Dealers

Congratulations to every one of you that exceeded the century mark. There have been alot of fine people who lost their lives getting above that speed. Through their efforts, and sadly their loss, we have any number of factory showroom boats that regularly exceed 100 MPH and bring the occupants back safey time and again.

If any of you can make it to any of the Unlimited races this season, (Hydroprop.com for schedule) look me up, I'd be pleased to get you pit passes and show you our equipment.

Take care,

My wife and I had the chance to ride in a 36' Specre with twin fire-breathin', blown, Billy Bad Ass motors at Lake Tahoe (6000' elevation) last year. The owner (Board Member "Tunnelvision") was breaking in a new drive and didn't want to push it much past 4000 RPM, and we still broke 103MPH!! He said the boat will turn 7000 rpm all day long at sea level. LOVE IT - NEED IT - GOTTA HAVE IT!!!!!

Tim & Cheryl, if you are on the board ......................

THANK YOU AGAIN!! It's still all we talk about!

Not 100, but whoa! In 1985 I had a 16' Laser (from Roark Summerferd) w/200 Evinrude, bullet lower unit, transom jack, cockpit cover with a cutout for the driver, foot throttle, trim in the wheel. 87 mph on radar. A Scary ride. I'm proud to say I never flipped it.
