I get it. However, I can't understand how anyone could enjoy a pleasure boat with a full canopy. And, is a full canopy boat a pleasure boat?

The motors were not quite modified 1075's...They were fully custom one offs by Merc. I talked to Tomlinson about his run at the record in this boat a couple months after it was attempted. He explained the boat had a LOOOOOT more in it and he had it up into the 170's for one pass but it was dangerous. He explained it wasn't unstable while running it up in speed it began to chine when coming off speed. JT said it could pass the speed record but not safely without a padded bottom.

They pulled the boat did some mods but the thing that needed to be done was to pad the bottom. At that point Skip had a sh!t load of money into the project and didn't want to screw with it any more.

This was the first built. There was another one built almost identical that races over seas that is still full canopied. The original was modified and the canopy cut off. I believe they modified the cockpit too, pushing it forward slightly. Also pulled the crazy motors and slapped some 1075's in it. Still runs in the 140's I believe.

I got to spend some time crawling and running with it at the Desert Storm poker run in 07. Thing is simply bad azz!!! Totally custom boat.

Here's some video I shot out there and some pics.
