Default Fastest Vee Bottom at LOTO

Billy Betz in his Outerlimits SV 43 is the fastest vee bottom as of now at LOTO with a 140mph pass. The boat is a full canopied boat with 1075s and number 6's! The boat will run past 140 given more room to stretch her legs!!

Correction. Let me re-phrase it for ya Dan.

Billy Betz in his Outerlimits SV 43 is the fastest vee bottom as of now at LOTO with a 140mph pass. The boat is a full canopied boat with 1075's by JCPERFORMANCE with number 6's! The boat will run past 140 given more room to stretch her legs!!

Congratulations Billy Betz and JC Performance!

They handle amazing at any speeds, slower and faster. I'm hoping someone got a video of his run!

second only to....., really good sex. Warp speed cats and turbines are cool but Vees and piston motors are "OFFSHORE".
Love to see that video. Thing is, if it was a perfect pass, it will appear boring in a video.
Was never a Reggie fan but loved his hate for cat's and attempts to run w/them.

1075's? I thought those things were making 1200+ now?

Regardless, very impressive number!

I'm a "noob" ?? Isn't that "newb" anyhow??
Let's see, you joined OSO in '07 which is 5 yrs after I did and I'm the "newb"? Oh wait, I see. Your boat is bigger than mine. I understand.
Know where your hero got his start?
Know which boat he splashed when he "designed" the 1st legendary Fountain?
Know which brand ran the 1st pad bottom that he Invented?
Know which brand ran the first notched transom that he invented?
Know which brand ran the first beak bow that he invented?
Know which yr he first drove the company in the ditch so Mercruiser had to take it over to recoup part of their losses?
Know who he blamed then?

I get attacked for not liking your hero? I know my history and have done my home work have you?
I like the boats just not the man.
Pretty sure that's allowed on "your" site isn't it?

You've got a big boat w/big motors. I'm impressed and want to be you.
