He loooooooved that Dragon and had great things to say about it (after fixing the gremlins). Just moved to something different.

Here's his new boat at the L.A. boat show in 08 (not rigged yet).
Wow that's sick gel!!! Nobody does gel better than Eliminator. Does it have the Coupe top? Wonder why he didn't put another wheel to port...

Wow, That Eliminator is unbelievable. Great to see a boat that color, and with those graphics.

That boat ended up getting Illmor's and Indy drives in it.

Well the Ilmor725/Indy setup is about half the price of a 1200/#6 setup. I would say it's a 130mph boat now.

The pics of the speedster with the ilmors is a different boat. I just talked to Eric. His Boat still isn't rigged and will still have large power and 6's. Should be done by the end of march.

Your right, the photo is of a 28 with the Ilmor / Indy package. My bad, got confused reading the other forum.

I can not believe the 36 is not done yet. It was at the LA 2009 boat show fully rigged except power, what has taken 9+ months to finish the boat.
