If I paid 1.2 mill for boat I do not think I would be the one to take it there. I would fly in, (by plane)and the boat would be there waiting for me.

Hate to be a kill joy, I really do but I hope for ALL our sakes this "30s" guy knows what the hell he is doing behind the wheel of that hotrod and doesnt make a meatball sandwich out of some family in a bowrider, even if he crashes all alone and doesnt involve anyone else the headlines would be bad...." Boat going 180 MILES PER HOUR crashes on local lake killing everyone aboard"!!!......"local residents in uproar"...........dont make headlines guys........

Boat was bought out of dealer in Florda. Owner Chris Kellog paid 1.5 million. Boat runs on race fuel & yes it was at LA boat show.

dont think lick this would stand much of a chance against Daves boat lick this is a 46 foot where daves is 36 foot Lick this has #6 with skags Daves #6 skags our cut off for no drag and steers with a rudder Both boats have 1300 sterlings by running 116 octane fuel there rated at 1600 hp.Starting from a dead stop- would not be in lick this best interest TomCat with the same mtrs and drives is not the first out of the hole.I would think some of the turbine boats would have the best shot at dave or a smallercat.Just my two cents Tom

After being at the Lake for 20 years I feel confident saying that sheer top end will not prevail at the shoot out (unlike a kilo) acceleration will be a major factor because of the short distance.

Yep......

That LOTO sure is a small little puddle. Might run over MoAllen in his little canoe.
