cool video. Wish I could have been there. I bet we would have been the fastest fishing boat on the run. I sure do miss my Lightning!

That was a pretty cool video. The first one was a much better video though.

He was first at the docks. BUT he was racing himself. NO one was there racing or even talking racing him.. This poker run was all about fun.. We were there.... Fightin' Irish was another fountain there that had 1100's ....132mph.. He would have ate up that canopy boat.. He wasn't there to do that. I was near that skater a few times.. He NEVER ran full out for long periods!

Good Vid.. We are in it a few times.. But His bragging about being at the dock 1st.... WELL... He could have ran 85-90 and still been at the dock 1st!!

Being there and watching the video... His son is going to do a nice job filling his shoes.... From what I seen ...not exactly the way I seen things... But again.. I didn't see ANYONE looking for a race!!
Again GREAT poker run Mark.. We are already on the books for next year...

In the second video @ 59 seconds, was it just me or did that guy say he just stepped up from a cigarette to a fountain?

It's always been a "Party" Poker Run; not a "Big Dick" Poker Run.

He brought a gun to a knife exhibition, and still didn't come out on top.

But again, my hat is off the organization. They are on the front page of OSO again with more publicity.

I would just like to see them step up and fulfill their fitting commitment to the Shriners Hospitals for Children. Everyone else did, and I bet he spent a pretty penny on that production too.
The money is not going in Mark's or the RPBA's pockets; it's going right to the kids.

Besides, when you get "there" first; all you can do is stand there in the hot sun, and the chicks are not even there yet.

Well whether you love them or hate them there are more Fountains on the water than any other brand. Likely more than most all the other brands combined. There must be something to the brand cause odds are there just can't be that many of us stupid people out here.

ok. So there is a guy that would eat the canopy boat? His boat runs 132? 1075 mercs push a 42 full cabin lightning to over 140. FACTS are important.

A local guy has a 32 Skater with 1050-1200's??? Pegging the rev limiter at 147mph with throttle left (I saw the pic taken during the run). Was told he immediately ordered bigger props......and at 15 miles from the start the Skater was well ahead (1/2 mile easy).

BUT....this isn't a race, the Skater owner isn't on here saying a thing and even others noted that the Skater didn't run full out for the whole run. I know he pulled the race boat at the start, let him pass, then pulled by him again before backing off for the rest of the run... (IT'S FOR CHARITY AND FOR FUN!!)
