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
triple digits in the SVL....that is incredible....you must have one heck of a driver

Professional classes are for canopied boats and Non-Pro are for open boats.

No, I did not purchase the boat from Dan, we work together on a team, and often ride together.

But when he took his boat all the way to LOTO and it became sick on the Fun Run, we used his talents in another boat this weekend.
That Global Warmer boat is: is light, fast and is beautiful machine. It sad it was not able to perform on the weekend.

Typical phrase in boating, it is not how fast you go, but how long you go fast,

OK, So what's the diff between Non-Pro and Manufacturer?

How are Chip Romers 388 and Gary Smiths 40 in different classes? Both open cockpit, private owned Skaters, with custom 1300+ blower motors. Same length class (4) according to the rule.

The reality is the fastest single engine pontoon was only 1 mile an hour slower( 104) than the SVL ?
Soon we will have a series of racing pontoon boats

I'm not really sure. I don't know if the Manufacturer sponsors a particular boat to represent them or what? Maybe someone else can answer.

Yep, that's pretty much it; Manufacturer sponsored; supposed to be new factory boats but they don't really police it.
