I'd love to tell you how fast the boat went (OK, way fast), but my editor would have to kill me. You can read about it in the summer "Speed and Technology" issue.

Mike, Dustin and all the folks at Outerlimits and Whipple ... nice job. Great to see you and, as usual, too short.
It was great to see you again in Parker! Excited to see the Speed and Technology issue of Powerboat!!

Dustin,

Wow, what a cool boat!

You do make a Stage II upgrade for the motors... right

Tommy should be putting the new motors on the dyno this week so it looks like a go. Also getting some more paint work done to the interior and engine room but everything should be finished in about 2 weeks.
