Found some picture's of what I am talking about with the hatches see how they open up the side of the deck.
Jim
Guess it is harder to find than others with the hatch being so unique?

There must have been a 40 out there named Mixed Emotions, to be comparing Maxed Out to it, because the 46 Mix Emotions dwarfs Maxed Out.

Doc Golia had a 40 Mixed Emotions before he built the 46. BOTH were rigged by Bobby Moores. The 40 was tested by POWERBOAT some years ago....

Thanks, I couldn't think of one at all until you said that.

Where is the former Big Thunder 46 with 4 engines that they won in Key West 01 or 02(?). Everyone called it Bigfoot, but they called a few of them that too as I remember? Not the 43 that I believe Bob still has, but the HUGE one that was cut down had the Baja logo in black & dual 6's next to each port & starboard.

Sorry I can't describe it any better, & I don't have a pic for some reason.

There were two quad 46 Big Thunders,The Original one was "Nuff Respect", both still in the midwest, I think. One belonged to Don Onken (SP) and I don't know about the other.....

The other one is still owned by Bob. Its the boat he used in the drag race between the MTI at Loto the past couple of years.

Maxed Out is one of the old Carlos and Charlies boats. Not sure if it is also the ones you listed Ryan. The old How Sweet It Is 40 is in CT and being converted.
