I'd have to say old tech hangs in there pretty good. Those two front engines (outside drives) are nearly a quarter of a century old. Course they have had maintaince and freshens all along. To lay down two 160 mph passes with a 60mph start and them improve to a 171mph with 30mph start wih only a minor tuning change is HUGE...that big ole gal had a head of steam and was charging so hard she was trying lift the nose again going thru the traps. On the last pass we noticed a extra coupla hundred gallons of water in the starboard bilge. Hole rubed in the water pickup to strainer line. With the hard charging efforts of the excellent pit crew from Performance Boat and assistance from the Onken/Eickert team the line was repaired at 4:59pm but the water patrol said no!! Can't wait to see what happens next. OH! Did I just hear someone say rematch??
