Good point!

Looking at the record for 22' single engine Vee hull it appears to be 80mph. With a 383 SB you should crush that number with the Bat!

Hmm, I thought that it was a 24. I guess that I had never measured it. I would imagine that it will do quite well in that class.

As the story goes.. The running surface (transom to nose) is 22' which was too short for the class they wanted it to race in. They then added the tail to bring the overall to like 23'-9". I believe the LOTO class is to 24'.

Love this idea. My mother's been battling cancer for the last 16 years-- stage 4. Best of luck with it, can't wait for the results! Going to show my mom this later. She'll love it.

How many hundreds of billions of dollars have been spent over the years looking for cancer cures? Until the carcinogen polluters are stopped there will be no cure for cancer.

this is not looking for a cure...it is to raise awareness..... hopefully when women see it they will think"ya know i should get a mammogram " all it has to do is save one life to make the project well worth it

Wow. Stories like this are heard all too often.

As I have said, I am not out to find a cure, but hopefully I can put something out there that those personally affected can be proud of, and will raise some awareness of what resources are out there to help with all phases from early detection to family support. I think that we can make some folks smile that sometimes don't have alot to smile about.
