Saratoga Stampede Fountain Vee Bottom checked out early Skaters and MTI behind them.

PP and another new 388 with big power were both there, they are both rolling at the .25 mark they started to run down Saratoga Stampede but backed off I think because of lack of local knowledge. And PP had a warning going off over 100.

This is a cut-n-paste of the answer I got when inquiring about the cat you see in the video going to catch Stampede:

Anchor Marina's new Skater 388 Widebody with 1500 Sterlings ruled the roost on the water. Piloted by Matt Trainer

The engines have 3 power settings. 1,100 HP, 1,400 Hp and 1,500 HP.
at 1,100 they can run on 93 octane.
1,400 HP required 106 octane
1,500 requires 113 or above.

They took delivery of 1,000 gallons of 106 octane when the boat first arrived and they've been breaking in the engines on 106 octane.

They reached 172 mph last week with about 1,000 rpm left to go running on 106 octane.

They're confident that boat will run a little over 205 MPH on 113 octane.

The person shooting the video knows Stampede has been there and knows that 90 degreee turn doesn't require but so much slowing down.....but the new guys in the cats had never been there and didn't know what to think when looking at nothing but trees just past the cameras location. Stampede jumped what was planned to be a pace boat, then everyone decided to go too. I know the gold/purple MTI owner who claimed he was running roughly 130 in the area this vid was taken........and was 7th. Note the acceleration of that 388 coming across the screen much faster than the rest, that thing has got to be scary fast!!!

Good point, note the officers of the club make no mention of fastest boat or first boat PERIOD!

(besides, this video was at the start, not the FINISH!!)
