Cool Baddest boats not on OSO

This weekend I watched (again) a flat deck 46 Skater absolutely smoke some really fast boats. One being a 46 with 1075's. I believe this boat was originally purchased with 1550 Sterlings. I believe they have been gone through since by the owner. I remember runs where we were chasing this boat at 150 mph and watching it pull away like we were dragging an anchor.

It made me curious about the boats that are out there that are not often/ever discussed online.

It would be interesting for these guys to show up at runs unexpected and crush some of the online ego's.

Yep, I think.... It was royal purple and grey. I have only seen it once, on Memorial day weekend.

Its Ben Lehmans boat. You are right...He doesn't have any presence on here but does have a pretty cool boat. He had a 2400HP 36 daytona before that. I hope he makes that 43 run, it doesn't seem like anyone else has been able to.
