100+ in a tooner is impressive to say the least. Unfortunately the water at LOTO isn't typically calm as it was for the Shootout course; I think Travis would welcome a run against any tooner on a Saturday afternoon.

If anyone has any video of the run, We would all love too see it.... The boat looked perfect and you could tell it was a very fast run.... I didn't realize they were only going to make one run,, so I kept waiting and waiting. But the boat clearly looked beautiful during the 140mph run..!!

I wonder how that same boat would perform on that course with Merc 1350s....probably would be something too see..!!

Congrats BB on the sweet run. Very nice in any V bottom. Nice to see more OLs at the lake.

Hey, I wanna tell you that was an outstanding run! The boat looks amazing (colors) and looked perfect on the LOTO course... I could tell it was a very fast run, and Teague and the livecam guys were super impressed on the boat and its performance... GREAT JOB !!

I hope your feeling better, and I hope everythings ok back home..!! Great Run at LOTO

Good to see you Bill. Wow, I thought you were going to have a good run but that thing is wicked. Next year come down a couple days early to run around on the lake and hit the fun run on friday as opposed to the poker run. It is a fun lake once you get used to where things are at. The water definitely changes once all the boats stir it up. fiore gave me a ride in the SL44 that was there. The bottom on the SV43/SL44 definitely has a nice ride to it.

Completely different ride than the 42. Wow was the feeling that I had during and after the ride. Now just set one up with Merc 1350s and a rocket has been born. Mike said he has run that bottom at 174 mph.
