fireboatpilot,

Sorry to hi-jack your thread, but I willing say this my father raced catamarans too, and usually got his ass handed to him, but that did not matter, even on the Delaware River, and even Hydratechs, Cris Cats, Skaters, Motions, Spectres, and beat a Chris Cat with twin V-8 Evinrudes.

How about this? Delete the Phantom pictures, this where I live now. The Magnum picture was when I was 20 years younger.

I was with my father one day when we raced a 38' Slingshot just north of the Rancocas Creek we out out accelerated the Hustler, but it came on by, not by much be we stayed in it long enough so there was no doubt, I would guess the difference was 2 mph, it was a tight race, but the Hustler was faster.

Another time, I was driving one afternoon, and tried to run a 38 Hustler coming north on the Elk not far from Turkey Point, I didn't get in it early enough, and the Hustler had a head of steam and came on by, and I could not run him down. I was too easy, and should have nailed it much earlier. Oh well.

He did beat a 38' Slingshot one day heading south out the canal, I would guess that 38' was an 82 mph boat, we did not walk away too hard that time.

And that's just three or four I remember, and there were the days I wasn't in the boat. And he raced a 38' Slinshot with Arnesons in the Phantom, I drove in the fast race, my father in the second. That's all I can remember.

Which one are you? Your boat may be another in addition to what I mentioned above.



That Magnum is in Brick Twp., NJ it went home (it was originally from that area). Barnegat Bay boat now, the owner is a good guy, I like him. My father was glad to see it went to someone who always liked the boat.

we raced north towards delaware in canal.....so dont think i was one of those three.....my boat on a good day ran 94

Tim,

That is some pretty cool software, changing image of boats is one thing but, you could really do some insane stuff with people pictures. My head on a bodybuilders body, or me standing with Beyounce, ect, or some very compromising (dirty) stuff.

Pretty cool.

The pink Hydratech was sitting in the winter storgae yard of Anchor Marine where rt 33 and rt 34 meet across from Sokoutis (?) the garabge guys. The boat was there for years doing nothing, just sitting, I think maybe 2 years ago it left????
