Congrats to the success of the Outerlimits SV 43 at LOTO. I had a chance to watch this boat run on the course and what a showcase at the dock!. I am sure with a longer stretch it would pick up some addtional MPH.

When I had the 1075 package in our open canopy 42 fountain poker run, it was tested in Powerboat at 144-146. Then when we converted to a full canopy Pleasure-Race Boat ( stereo/AC and 4 seats), it would top `150+, but the best we could do in a mile at LOTO was 139.

Then in the fall of 2010, we changed the Merc Motors out to the new 1200, preparing for KW, the testing speeds were improved again. It was aquired, before KW, and has a new home in Trinidad, on the OS racing circuit

The 2011 LOTO was a wonderful event, and the performance of this OL-43 was outstanding. It will soon be time to start snowmobiling

You can read two in-depth stories about Outerlimits construction processes in the October/November issue of Professional BoatBuilder magazine.

MAYBE I SHOULD PUT A SAIL ON IT.
Sorry. They pull the class info when they pull the registration link off the site. It's posted around here somewhere. Not sure where. Maybe someone will paste it here.

Your 28 will likely be a NV2ab. (Non-professional, V-bottom, 27'-31' long, a=engine designation, b=# of engines).

Had mechanical trouble and was unable to run. If this was the gauntlet, they did not run and the outcome would still be up in the air.
there was something about a bridge being opened for the fountain run and not for the others. hey sonic has made a nice boat for years with lots of room, fountains are a rougher ride with lil room in real sea's and both are production made boats like a lot of other boats , nuten wrong with dat. but. outerlimits and skater,mti, saber,sutphen and a few others are custom made boats with hull and decks glassed together a few made each year. good luck to RF on his new boats I have his driving tapes from the 1990s love them. ps I would check the SONIC threads before buying one now though, they have been screwing brother sp123 over a boat for a year all most. not sure if he got it. read the story its sad for what has happened to a OSO BROTHER. Art out cutting tree's up from the biotch storm

hey thanks, I was taking a break from cutting trees and cleaning up. I hope to go out there next year. back to the site looks good and theres a lot to do. it must be 30hours out to there from here, I am a 1/2 from south of BOSTON MA or 1/2 hour north of PROVIDENCE RI. it would be cool to bring some of the sutphens from here to. maybe rent a RV so we could tow all day and night. thanks again sorry for venting earlier, this storm clean up sux, I was hoping to run the boat end of the week NOT.

It was a fantastic boat, and great performance.
The shootout results reflect the top V was 139( same as last year), not 140
was there a posting error?

Cheers

Correct, we played around with the Watch Your Back (30 fountain SVL) and the 47 ( with a pair of 1200) this past weekend at LOTO. It was a great weekend
Sorry for the past 20 years, I only manage spine surgery and trauma

Cheers
