Yep, I sure do know that boat. That's Nine Lives! Back in the 90's we used to run in the DSRA radar run shoot-out in our 22 Talon. Two years in a row I took second place overall to that darn boat! It was a short course against the river current and you had to start from off plane (although Kenny would sometimes take a run at the start - hey, no fair!!). First year he went 105 mph and I went 104 mph. The next year he went 106 and I went 105. That boat was my nemesis! Seriously though, I never actually met Kenny, but was sad to hear of his early passing. He was definitely a high performance enthusiast that had one of the fastest Bravo boats around.

I know somewhere I got an old video of a local St. Louis TV newscast where they did a story on the DSRA radar run. The reporter and camera guy filmed a 100+mph ride in that boat. Pretty cool.

Congrats on your purchase!
