The entire lake is filled with HEAVY HARDWARE everywhere you go during the Shootout. It is a an event that I feel would be hard to match up to anywhere else.

Yes we have with more speed to be had.They really are amazing to say the least. Its by far the best vee bottom Ive ever been in and I've pretty much been in them all. A SV43 would be a 160mph boat with the Merc Package and would just be insane.

I gotta get out there next year with the SVX. I think an onslaught of Outerlimits at the shootout is in order!!

Totally agree.

There is NOTHING like LOTO on ShootOut weekend.
If you have a fast boat, or a half-fast boat, or just like fast boats, then it is a 'don't miss' event.

Congrats to BB and the OL team for putting up some very impressive numbers.

Well you know, Desert Storm is just over 6 months away. Seen many a nice OL at that event over the last few years. Mamba and Billet were major hits! Bring em all!

Ididn't see anything about the shootout, just bull chit about mini SO, and partys, pr, no classes. yes for rc. anyone find it. like to know what the saber will be under next year. since I can't finish it until all my trees are cut up from the biotch storm, I'm the only azz in my town to loose 6 trees and not one hit the house or baja well theres a leaner that might be close. my 1st run will be another week off or after labor day cause of the storm. congrats to OL and JC. MAYBE I SHOULD PUT A SAIL ON IT.
