They deserve some credit as Cuttin Loose wouldhave beat him if the start was even.
Seems like Cuttin Loose has been putting on a pretty good show lately!

Looking good Dale. Time to retire from Realty and go full pro.

When are you going to let me run this boat? After all it is named after me

I had to sign up just to rub it in.

Later, Purgatory

Boatless-i always have a problem when someone goes to a poker run and doesnt pay attention at the drivers meeting.
Jumping the start is uncalled for.Posting a video that clearly shows how far in front of the rest of the boats at the start isnt real smart either.
Other than that i love the looks of the boat and the sound of a blower motor gettin it on.

Silly me....all along I thought it was because Grant set me up with 1:33 gears to run at 7000 rpm for acceleration while everyone was running 1:24 gear sets and big wheels for top end. Here's a pic on the soft limiter at 54% throttle opening the day before.....you can confirm that with Tommy if you want.

Well, I wasn't there and I don't pretend to know anymore than what I read and see, however, I did not see anyone mention your boat there so why are you so ruffled when it is apparent from the same video you referenced that the boats around Purgatory left ahead of him and he and others took off also. Purgatory did not take anything from you so lower your blood pressure and calm down. It's a poker run, not a race anyways. No one won anything for being to the bridge first and either way they took nothing out of your pocket.

+1 congrats to them on a great run. There was an alarm that went off before the bridge and Darrell backed out of it some. First open cockpit boat to the bridge... not bad for a set of lil ol' 1200's

The two boats behind him, at the bridge ,left when the pace boat dropped the flag.All i am saying is that they deserve the true credit as they were reeling him in at the bridge.
You being "BOATLESS' you dont have any idea of the disappointment or discust that a poker runner feels when a couple of boats jump the start and leave before the pace boat releases them.No my boat wasnt there ,blood pressure is fine ,-go back and reread the previous posts so you can get educated.

Boatless or not, I had just as many boats in that Poker Run as you did but unlike yourself, I belive those that were actually there and paid $ to particpate in the event have a right to complain or in your world Bit*h, about how they feel about the run. Unless I missed something, no one is having you voice their feelings about the event.

Richie won't say it but he also stoped when Bill broke and through up the yellow flag to let other boaters he didn't want to become a ski ramp!! Just saying
