Ten years ago at the Oshkosh Poker Run we were on the first leg of the run and in front with nobody around, I thought we would be first to the card stop. In the distance we saw a rooster tail coming up behind us. Had to be 150 when he went by. I spoke to Rod and his father later about it and they laughed about how much race gas it took to do that. Really nice family.

Unreal sound coming from those motors.

Real nice father/son team. They always took time to answer all the questions that came from the onlookers.
There was always a techy in back seat with a laptop doing high tech adjustments to the engines.

Way ahead of the rest of the group when they were doing all this.
In the runs I attended with them they always started and finished.

They really put a lot of effort into what they were doing and obviously a lot of money.

But.....real good people.
Ditto - I never got to know them but at all of the Canada runs I attended and they were there, they were very nice people.

Pretty incredible and humbling story - I run a 30 Spectre with twin 300XS's (96-99 MPH) and feel like I'm running pretty good. Add a third engine to my boat and I'm running 110+ MPH. To be passed at that point...........WHOA!!!!!!!!!!

Hopefully Brad can chime in and correct the details. This was from memory.

Mike

well it is a SKATER and thats when Rod opened a can of WOOP AZZ !!!!!!

I was running flat out with full tanks of gas and four people at 110 mph for miles. 30' Motion cat with triple Mercury Racing 280 hp outboards. With no windshield your neck would get sore keeping your head upright from the wind. Fun boat. When Rod passed me I decided a faster boat was needed next year. That Sorcerer boat was the meanest sounding boat I have ever heard.

Try their old website, www.sorcererboating.com. There are pictures of the boat along with a recording of the sounds from the motors. Happy New Year.
