Pump gas vs race gas...neither of these boats are bump into the dock regular boats...they are the hot rods that most of us wish we had...and at the cost of the boats we are talking about...I don't think pump gas/ race gas debate is relevant.JMHO
The speeds are incredible..Good Job

How many hours is half tired ?

Some boats are just special. Gino's boat is one of them. I have watched him run this boat for the last couple of years in rough and calm waters and his boat does everything right. She flies level 'most of the time' and she is fast as hell!! Way to go.
