When you are done with your boating season, come visit us for snowmoblining this winter

at 32 degrees water to freedom,,,,,


cheers
Heck I'll still go boating if its above 30 degrees!! We usually boat up until the end of October up here and even in November if its warm enough and test year round. Never been a huge winter sports guy but your place looks sweet!! You going to run the SVL down in Key West?

They were set up at 1125HP for the run.We ran 100LL AV gas which hurts power but makes it safe under the conditions.

Kinda puts it in perspective. A boat that big and that heavy, accelerating from a 40 roll and then only having a mile to get it done.....WOW!
I'm used to following the APBA/UIM Kilo records which gives you a flying kilometer w/the sticks pinned and piddling w/buttons to get everything right before you enter the measured kilo.
What all of you guys did/do is way impressive! To be within 10 MPH's of WFO after a mile is damned impressive. I always wondered what was left. Now we know the answer is not much.
Again congrats to all!

Not a 100% on KW, but we are planning to make the event.

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

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

I have to say that 135 to 150 mph sounds real fast and is, but running it in a 40+ ft Kevlar hull, with hyd steering and in a protective canopy while takes experience just does not seem so extraordinary with all due respect. 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!
