Maybe running WOT in offshore conditions with 4 to 6 ft seas is impressive but on an inland lake. What were the water conditions? For those of use that do not run such a beautiful boat what are some of the skills necessary to make a run at LOTO?

For me running a 21 to 22 ft sport boat with a 21 to 22 degree deadrise with 450HP @ 70+ mph is what I call using your abilities.

Again, it's just a question from an average boater who like many can only dream to own such a powerboat.

All the best!
With all due respect...when you only have 1 mile there isn't time to fart...let alone 100, 140, 200, geez; you set the tabs pre-run and after that you bring the drives up and a couple of bumps and...boom, it's over; you think it's simple come on up and race it's only $50 for 2 runs...

We have to pick up the pieces after LOTO week:
* In the global warmer boat we lost a motor on Thursday,
* Had some issues with the 1200 Merc fuel pumps in the 47
* We put up a bigger triple digit number with the SVL, than our 47 ( a pair of 1200) this past weekend.
* The most reliable was the Center C with triple verado package
Doc, hope to see you in KW, we're going down to support Grandpa Morgan; we'll root for you too!

Thanks!, I don't know if you got a chance to see the run live on the livecam, but Teague commented several times how perfectly straight, and dailed in the 43 was during the run... It went down the course perfectly! You could tell it was an extremely fast run.....
